“Did you hear that the Galaxy Note 7 is now available in Black"

Samsung's error was thinking, and acting on the thought, that they needed to have the Note 7 out before the iPhone 7. Then when problems arose, they thought that they had to act quickly to recall the existing product and replace it. Somewhere in there, a failure to determine the exact cause occurred. That was a concern of mine that I noted at the time, and now it has come to pass.
The Note 5 came out before the iPhone 6S. I don't think it had anything to do with trying to beat the iPhone 7 - Samsung already altered the release date of the Note last year to come out earlier than the iPhone.
It's nothing more than piss-poor quality control.
So, then... the Note7 is actually the Note6...6...6
...and all the... smoke... fire... burning mayhem...
This is all beginning to make a lot more sense....

True, but where there are Note7s, there is smoke.

They don't care and will risk it as they think it's the best phone ever and the odds of blowing up is 1 in 100,000 or something.The line at Samsung's Recall Depot as die-hard fandroids reluctantly turn in their Note7s.Sort of resembles an iPhone launch in reverse, doesn't it?...
