35% of those stuck with Samsung’s explosive Galaxy Note 7 want a refund, 26% want to upgrade to Apple’s iPhone 7

Over one third (35%) of beleaguered Samsung’s exploding, fire-prone Galaxy Note 7 owners want refunds.

Over a quarter (26%) also presumably want refunds for their poor purchase, but then want to upgrade to Apple’s iPhone 7. We also assume they mean the iPhone 7 Plus as the display size is similar to Samsung’s exploding, fire-prone Galaxy Note 7.

The moral of the story: Just over a quarter of those who buy inferior wares from a South Korean dishwasher maker aren’t as stupid as the rest of those toting around beleaguered Samsung’s flawed and dangerous phones.

    Samsung will keep sending warning messages to your recalled Galaxy Note 7 until you return it

    Samsung is issuing a software update to Galaxy Note 7 phones in the US this week that’ll warn you if you have a model affected by last week’s recall.

    That’s easy. ALL of them!

    The software update will display a green battery icon at the top of the Note 7’s screen if you’re using a model with a stable battery….

    Samsung also said in a statement Tuesday that it has shipped 500,000 Note 7 replacement units to the US. Last week, the company said most retailers will have functioning Note 7 replacement units by September 21.

    IOW: Right now it might a flip of a coin as to whether you’re buying a ‘stable’ Note 7 or an older UNstable Note 7. I say this because a Vodefone store in Australia was recently caught trying to sell UNstable Note 7s AFTER the recall had already been announced. Unscrupulous.
