    I find it interesting the estimates of the Samsung Note 7 sold and shipped were only 2.5 and 3 million respectively. Doesn't seem to match the "high demand" accolades in the news. Wonder what would get reported if Apple had sales like that in the first month. Did a search for sales numbers, and second article I looked at I saw the following in on August 7th: "Needless to say, Samsung’s ‘Galaxy Note’ series devices are usually selling like hotcakes,...". In light of what transpired, an I nteresting choice of words, or ... a prognostic premonition.
