    Seeing as if this was Apple, everyone would be jumping on it

    My mate has one on order. He's hoping they will have fixed the issue by the time his is available. This doesn't look very good for Samsung. Were apple making the batteries or something?
    My local hospital has a sign which reads "This way for accidents and emergencies." Haven't people in hospital got enough to worry about without looking for further misfortune?

      I was looking at upgrading to one of these today but thinking about not now as I wasnt fully sure anyway.

      People I know if the phone circuits say for the price its just not worth it so might just go for the S7 Edge.

        They've had 38 reports of fires / explosions, which was described as "only" 38, but that's a LOT.
        They must know something is up.

        nVidia recalled the Shield tablet after 2 reports of fire.

            they had to though, didn't they.
            cheaper to do it now when they've only shifted a couple million of them.
            other option is leave it & wait for some fatal house fire to be attributed to a faulty Sammy
            the neg publicity should something like ^ that happen would cost them so much more..

                Apple would sell it as a feature. A hand/pocket warmer.

                    All jokes aside, I'm impressed by the way samsung are dealing with the issue. How many hotpoint tumble driers have gone up now? How many Vauxhall zafira's have bunt to a crisp? These companies are not taking responsibility for the issues but samsung was straight in there and recalled them all.
