Opinion: Samsung Note7

Not one of us, back in August would have ever thought that the current situation with note7 would or could have ever happened, but it has, and samsung will be working very hard behind closed doors trying to figure out just what the hell to do. The priority must be two words, "we're sorry"
Samsung had failed in its position of head Android shipper to release a device safely to the public, and positively to its investors. It is done! The note7 is finished, beyond economic repair and unrecoverable to consumers.
The note7 Is the Donald Trump of the mobile phone world, it's poison, does more harm than good and needs to be shelved as a failed project. Sure, there are a few that still want it, but they are wrong, in us all, we know it's not the right choice, what they want is something Samsung, it seems, cannot deliver.
With Telco's all over the world dropping Note7 like a brick, it's time Samsung cut the losses and honoured their commitments as suppliers with royal seals and rooms full of awards, recall the lot, make it mandatory and give all those customers in limbo the best God Damn freebies you can muster to keep them loyal.
But above all, make sure they know you're sorry.
Do not rush a phone again, do not skip over a months worth of testing just to get out the doors before apple, it won't ever help. Do not release battery tech without testing it for every scenario, do not send emails between each other playing the customer like an annoyance, he is why you have a job. Do not wait, do not look for solutions, the device is finished, move on.
But above all else, be Sorry.

It's totally heartbreaking for such a company to fail so badly.
It's as if they have to start afresh.
Whatever they do, I think the damage to their reputation is beyond repair... (and I have only ever owned Samsung phones)

Samsung are usually very good at saying sorry - let's hope they pull through this one..... quickly!

I bet they regret not releasing the Note 5 in Europe now.....nothing new for us since the Note 4.

That's a hell of a big market to lose

So...I wonder whether Sony is planning to jump into Samsung's shoes (pro-tem)

Great time to do it (from a marketing perspective)....

Different device classes, phablet vs phone.
But like every other manufacturer, sales will definitely increase with a certain % of note customers looking for the latest and greatest. I fully expect the vast majority to remain Samsung customers.

I've just had an update to my Z5 which has added something called "charging optimisation" which apparently "changes the charging method to optimise battery life"
I wonder if they are all crapping themselves now???

I am aware that one is a phablet. That's not what I meant at all.
To put it plainly I wondered whether anyone (possibly Sony) would be planning to introduce a phablet to fill the massive gap in the market...
Those of us who love phablet devices are left without a new device this year.

Charging optimisation was first introduced with the Qnovo tech in X,
Basically it will extend the overall life of your battery by learning your charging patterns and charging to 95% then waiting until the exact time needed to charge to 100% instead of charging to 100, when drops to 99 charging again, and again and again as this is what kills lithium quicker.
Unrelated to note7 but shows the kind of things other manufacturers have to reduce lithium wear.
