“Reports out of Korea say Samsung plans to temporarily halt production of the Galaxy Note 7, and it should,” Ina Fried writes for Recode. “The Note 7 isn’t going to get a third chance.”

“With multiple reports that the supposedly safe replacement models are also overheating, there would appear to no longer be a market for [this] phone,” Fried writes. “The clearest sign of this came Sunday as AT&T and T-Mobile announced they would no longer even give replacement models to those turning in the original, recalled models. Verizon hasn’t officially halted distribution of replacement models, but a representative said it currently has no inventory of the devices.”

“Samsung should shift its attention from saving the Note 7 to saving its reputation, and its mobile business,” Fried writes. “The Note 7 is over. Samsung’s work now is to try to ensure there is a market for a Note 8.”
