Neither of my Samsung Galaxy Note 7 (the original I received, nor the replacement) has caught fire, exploded or even gotten hot. I mean, not in the slightest. It's hard for me to understand the issue at all, it's barely warm once I remove it from the charger. All my other phones have been much. much hotter almost all the time.
I feel that I am being punished for wanting the very best phone on earth. There is nothing wrong with my phone, and almost everything is right about it.
Sure, there are some curiously idiotic flaws to address...
- The note platform is meant for note taking and individual creativity. But the curved edge surfaces are completely unreliable writing surfaces acting as an obstacle, a problem doubled with no touch sensitivity.
- The curves are more like speed bumps, disallowing freeform drawing, sketching, painting or note-taking.
- It is absolutely impossible to write to the edge of the screen (so that artists cannot digitally use the whole canvas in drawing or photo editing apps).
I was at Verizon a week ago getting answers to my questions. I still had a couple of Galaxy Note 7 cases that I had to return to Best Buy, as Verizon wasn't going to reimburse me for them. And there is the matter of the fast Samsung wireless charger stand I am not sure whether I will return or not.
This doesn't take into the account all the online research I have had to do to find an acceptable replacement for my primary phone (that I just bought and did all sorts of research on, yet settled for anyway). Anything good hasn't been released to the market, yet.
On top of that, I will steer the rest of my family away from ever buying Samsung products again. By taking away my Note 7, I will guarantee you that when it comes time for my wife, son and mother to upgrade from their current Galaxy S6 phones, it won't be to a Samsung device. I think they will like the iPhone more and more, or perhaps they will like my Google Pixel XL. But never a Samsung, ever again. Not even a new Samsung TV, tablet or camera will enter this house, now.
Samsung, you have spit all over my loyalty. Goodbye!
