Reports have surfaced indicating that the Galaxy Note 7 launch has been delayed in parts of Europe - Germany in particular - as sales were set to commence this week. The news lands corresponding with multiple reports coming out of Korea that Samsung has plans to issue recalls for phones - anywhere from just some Exynos variants up to all Galaxy Note 7s that have been sold.

I suggest free bumpers.

Samsung Mobile Phone batteries have a history of being garbage. 1 year life spans and for their devices under powered.

The best thing that happened to me was the screen digitiser breakage on my Note 2 whilst traveling. For the price of repair I ended up replacing the phone with a Huawei MediaPad X1 (7 Inch). Over 2 years now and the device runs as well as the day I bought it. Battery with no issues (2 days usage on a charge) and also no fragile screen unlike Samsung and Apple devices.

My wife when I was OS decided to replace her old Nokia and against my advice she ended up with a Samsung Galaxy. Boy does she rue the day she got that phone. Pity the Nokia had a bung USB port on it.

A real carbon frame could do it.

Really, having a client to return to store (or worst, a far away service shop) before 2 software upgrades, is detrimental to Trademark Name.

Micro USB need (early) jubilation, resilience wise.
