    Competition benefits consumers so I hope they find their way out of this.

    I don't think you do feel bad for Samsung (Not defending them). I think you post these threads to mock the Company, as you have with Apple. At least based off your thread history. Just my Opinion.

    Honestly seems like something any company's rep would say in a situation.

    I'm not blind brand follower. Just state what's right and true. Right now Samsung is in big trouble and that's the truth.

    I understand Samsung is in trouble and nor am I defending them. I'm stating my opinion only.

    it is no longer about selling Note 7 for profit. Samsung needs to act fast to defend their reputation if they want to survive smartphone business long term.

    iPhones catch fire too. ;)

    Not too long ago I saw that an iPhone 7 had caught fire in its box while in transit. Past iPhones have caught fire too.

    Apple decide to make no official statement.

    My opinion with Samsung is that they should obviously continue to replace Note 7 units and then when the new 8 is released offer some kind of discount for Brand Loyalty.

    Not a free Vr or case etc but a sizeable discount off the new phone.

    Oh yeah that too. Bad times for the Korean giant. Although that money won't make a dent given the sheer size of Samsung.

    To me that's the usual seesaw merrygoround of claim and counter claim in the law courts.

    Every phone can catch fire. That's not the point though.

    The point is that in this case it's not an isolated case and Samsung should just give in and stop selling the note 7. Their reputation is going down the drain anyway.

    I agree. Don't advertise as a company that you're all thumbsup about transparency, and then not be transparent
