    Meh, it is a battery issue, not a phone issue. They are correcting it and replacing them for free.

    This would be cause for another upcharge if it were Apple. Right Pilot :lol:

    Garbage phones. This is proof. Using one could actually kill you.

      iPhones did the same thing not too long ago.

      Deal with it

      Link? Never heard of iPhone batteries that could kill you.

      They had the same problem with their batteries. And "exploding" is a bit of an exaggeration. It's a battery issue, and often when it's charging, but not always.

      Not a single instance where Apple has had a full recall. Apple was able to identify the problem and neutralize the affected ones. Samsung can't figure out the problem and the phone is only 2 weeks old.

      I know, I know. Hit me with the fanboy crap since that's all that can be hurled.

      They probably have, but aren't interested in making people go ape **** about it.
      They are fixing it, for free, end of story.

      Lithium Ion batteries have a history of this sort of thing, unfortunately, particularly when cheaply made.
      It has nothing to do with the phone, didn't with iPhone either.

      Just more proof that the Note is the worst phone in history. I'd rather have my old Razr.

      Ox is a troll and has wet dreams of Hillary Clinton. His irrational love for iPhone proves it

        I think the S6 is trash. And most of the Samsungs have way too much bloatware.

        I'm pretty sure he is related to Hillary Clinton and Steve Jobs.

          There is already DNA evidence.
          I'm surprised that Pilot hasn't figured it out and incessantly started threads about it :lol:

            I get a pretty good amount of amusement over how defensive URG gets about the Note. We know you like your Note, no one is going to take it away, I promise.

            So you're not denying that you have wet dreams of Hillary Clinton.
