Samsung is adjusting Galaxy Note 7 production volume to conduct detailed inspections

It was reported earlier today that Samsung has temporarily halted production of the Galaxy Note 7 as its latest flagship has pushed it into damage control mode once again. The company didn’t officially confirm or deny that production had been stopped, but it has issued a statement which suggests that some changes have been made. Samsung has said that it’s adjusting production volumes for the Galaxy Note 7, its statement follows multiple reports of replacement Galaxy Note 7s exploding.

Without elaborating further, Samsung said that these adjustments have been made to the company to conduct detailed inspections and improve quality control. The company is yet to confirm if there’s a safety issue with the replacement Galaxy Note 7 as well and if that turns out to be the case it may have to issue another recall. Many are calling on Samsung to give up on the Galaxy Note 7 completely and just move on but so far there has been no indication that Samsung is willing to take such a major step. In an earlier statement the company said that it’s diligently working with consumer protection agencies to investigate the cause of these latest incidents.

Most likely is the thermal runaway protection circuit. I made a protection for my phone myself, using Tasker to detect battery temperature and trigger events. At 45 degrees it automatically shuts down the charger socket if charging, and stops all applications and Wi-Fi and dimms the screen. So far after 3 days battery temperature didn’t even reach 40 degrees Celsius, not even when fast charging.

Just wondering if this issue with Battery burning is actually not caused by the Battery itself, but by another piece of equipment, say like the cooling module or similar …?

If I only would already own a “safe” Note 7 from my German Vodafone preorder I would certainly keep it, as their is no real phablet alternative with a pen on the market to go for and the risk probability it to explode seams to be very, very low. The only alternatives for me are to step back to the old Note 5 or just wait for a Note 8 as even the old Note 5 easily outperforms any current competitors offering. Waiting for a Note 8 will not only be a hard time for the enthusiast but might not… Read more »

My Note 7 is already safe and I will not change it. I don’t believe there is any serious problem. And I believe there is a huge conspiracy behind most of these incidents. Look how burnings continue even after replacements.

Until Samsung issues an official recall I will definitely be keeping my “safe” Note7.

Whatever they’ll do, I will keep my replacement Note 7 if for the best display reason only. For now, I have a 0.00365% chance that my note explodes by Christmas 2017. (if you do the math and take into consideration the volumes of smartphones sold and how many cases per week of exploding phones are there)
I think I’ll take that chance.
Not considering that I have an european Exynos and strangely there was no case in Europe yet.
What do you think?

Just forget about the note 7 and move on! Samsung has completely killed the product, won’t be sellable on second hand market so just stop selling it and let’s move on to the S8!

I don’t think it’s too late. People who specifically want a Note are not going to buy the S8. People still do want their Notes.

It’s about making sure they get it right, because if they botcher this any more, the Note brand will be damaged forever, and Samsung’s reputation tarnished as well.

Why should I want a tiny screen again? I hate edges, so no S7E here.

I want my Note7 replacement! The 2 weeks spent together with the Note7 made me fall in love!
