    Not what I'm asking. Since you know you're being recorded is it legal to record them as well without telling them?

    New update guys, I just called Samsung Dubai and they said we have 3 options:

    1) Wait until the new badge of Note 7 is released in 2-3 weeks to get a replacement Note 7

    2) Exchange the phone with a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and get an AED 400 dhs voucher (worth USD !20 approximately)

    3) Get a full refund

    I'm keeping mine. I got a Gear Fit 2 with mine (free promotion) and it came yesterday. Nice little smartwatch device.

    So will Note 7 be banned forever on planes? They will never know if they have been replaced. This is dumb. Every instance has been from a phone on a charger not while in use. Another example of over reacting without facts or intelligence.

    In any case, this video is interesting. Surprising how easily the battery catches fire when barely punctured by the tweezers. But in this case it would happen with any battery without a failsafe circuit.

    So far there have been about 35 cases out of 2 million phones. That equates to 0.00175% of phones that were affected which equates to roughly 1 in 60000. I mean your risk of getting injured in a car accident or hit by lightning are far greater.

    yeah that's why I returned mine for an S7 because I know it will lose value quickly when I come to sell it in the future as people will be wondering if it's the updated one with the new battery or the old one, if they even buy it from me.

    FYI, the iPhone 7 Plus 256GB Black/Jet Black is now available to pre-order in Dubai for a whooping $1062 USD and will be available on the 25th of September.

    No thank you Apple, I'd rather go buy 2 high end flagship phones for the same price with an SD card or buy a decent laptop. This is insane man

    Initially I heard it mentioned as the Note 7 phones either exploded while charging or shortly thereafter...but it didn't say how long after it had been removed from charging.
