Beleaguered Samsung’s exploding Galaxy Note 7 has no future

“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.”

  1. Any mistake with future totally redesigned models will be their instant undoing & death as a mobile phone maker. Feeling the pressure much slavish copier? As the stakes and technology get higher the Apple tough get going and the rest SamSplode. More cruel chuckles seem to be in order.

  2. ScamSplod💣 needs to innovate procedures for efficient recall of their ScamSplod💣Not💣7 phones.

    I wonder if they’ll count recalled phones as ‘shipped’ when they report smartphone sales!? 🖖😀⌚️

  3. Airlines will continue to question anyone who has a Samsung device. Passengers will question other passengers if they are holding a Samsung device. People in bars, clubs, etc. will denounce the bomb holders like they did when they didn’t want to be spied on by Google Glass. Who wants to be shamed and ridiculed for using a damaged brand? There should be a mass exodus from Samsung this holiday season.

  4. This may be extremely damaging to Samsung than people think. Now that the top carriers won’t replace them people will now have to downgrade to another Samsung. Get another Android, or switch to iPhone. With the demise of Blackberry and Windows phone enterprise buyers are looking for something new. Even if they don’t go Apple they will not be going Samsung. Whoever they choose they will be with a long time. Samsung’ profits are very dependent on cell phones. This will be a major financial loss that will take years to recover from.

    Google could not have picked a better time to get into the market. Their phone is crap compared to last year Galaxy, let alone last years iPhone. They would of had a hard time selling to Android buyers if not for this problem.

  5. “The Note 7 isn’t going to get a third chance.”
    “Samsung’s work now is to try to ensure there is a market for a Note 8.”

    That is what is called a third chance.
    Although by that time it will likely be called a sixth chance.
