It could, over time. Or at the very least greatly accelerate battery degradation and durability.

Wow, it seems that Android’s biggest OEM just can’t seem to do anything right. What a rough month for them.

7. Planterz (Posts: 2086; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)

Well, I’d say that they did the recall right, but yeah…

The Note 7 Edge FUBAR cost them millions upon millions, but they did everything they could to retain faith in their brand with the recall.

But now this…this is a software bug that can potentially physically damage phones (and surrounding people/objects), cost them more money in lawsuits and warranty repairs, and even more significantly it damages their brand image even more.

I suppose I should be thankful that my S4 runs a custom MM ROM and my S4 Mini is stuck on 4.4.2 KK.

I have to disagree to some extent. Some people got the run around and some people didn’t get the exchange at all. I think they let their QC slip up in a bid to beat the iphone to release.

35. Subie (Posts: 748; Member since: 01 Aug 2015)

I thought they only released the Note 7 two days earlier then the note 5 last year. So wouldn’t it have been on the market before the iPhone anyway?

33. McLTE (Posts: 827; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)

and Apple is doing so much better? Yellow tint that you are supposed to “just let the glue dry”??

ALL phones have these kinds of issues from time to time. While the Note 7 recall is epic, every little thing like this doesn’t have to be blown way out of proportion.

Lol you hear something on one forum and more it’s a major issue.

I agree that the scammers made it even worse but for Samsung to completely recall a major product in their line up, it’s pretty serious.

Sucks because the note 7 looks bada$$. The people that were on the fence about switching from apple are the worst for Samsung.

37. Scott93274 (Posts: 4673; Member since: 06 Aug 2013)

Umm…. that’s cool and all, but I couldn’t care less about Apple. Samsung on the other hand, is the largest OEM for Android, the OS I prefer, and they’re just dealing with one bad PR mess after another. If it’s not with their various phones, they also have new reports of washing machines blowing up that were manufactured between 2011 and now.

Please feel free to redirect the conversation if you feel like I’m displaying a double standard here, but I don’t give two sh*ts about Apple, thus your inclusion of them in this article is 100% irrelevant.

At those temps it could and if you were playing a game that chance would only increase. Can you image that, someone starts playing a VR game only to have an S7 literally explode in their face.

So when they write an Apple article, its iPhoneArena. When they write a Samsung article, its still iPhoneArena. Lmao you guys are a bunch of cucks

16. Ordinary (Posts: 2321; Member since: 23 Apr 2015)

Coming from a guy that cries about “rigged” blind camera comparison.

You really are unordinary.

20. TechieXP1969 (Posts: 10138; Member since: 25 Sep 2013)

But they have been rigged. The battery tests are rigged too. They are all rigged in favor of Apple.

We saw one where PA posted a polls and Samsung got the most votes, but Apple won the most rounds. But even though Samsung actually won, because it had the most votes, PA said it was a tie, even though Apple clearly lost.

Their excuse? Well apple won the most rounds so they should have won.

When everyone know, that in any sport with innings, quarters or sets; that it doesn’t matter who score the most points in each segments, its who has the most points when the game is over.

PA was butthurt because the iPhone lost again and they couldn’t do anything about it.

We all saw it and it was as pathetic as PA’s moderators.

Yes I am attacking them because they limited my account on a post where I agreed with the poster and said nothing bad, I use no bad words or nothing. They just so full of BS.

18. Mxyzptlk (Posts: 13103; Member since: 21 Apr 2012)

Exactly. +1 for the truth.

21. TechieXP1969 (Posts: 10138; Member since: 25 Sep 2013)

So are you saying, you never saw or see where in a Apple article, they always have to mention Samsung and in a Samsung article they always have to mention Apple?

Apple is always mention in non-Apple related articles.

I realize the iPhone is an iconic device, it has received lots of praise and some of which it has deserved in the past. But it is no longer that iconic device and is simply being bought out of habit and because apple has its users locked in. The deeper you go, the harder it is to leave. Because most of it, can’t be taken with you.

When a review is done, it is a given that at the top, the only real rivals is Apple and Samsung as no other OEM sells as much product as them. But it is a needless comparison that happens in every article.

It would be great to see an Apple article that is just about Apple and a Samsung article that is just about Samsung; without mentioning the other party.

Especially since, when they take about Samsung, its mostly in a derogatory sense of context while praising Apple for the stuff that bash Samsung about.

Example…Samsung has always been atatcked for over-saturation in their displays and cameras. Even I said yes it is a bit much, but I personally like it. But Apple is doing it now too and when they go AMOLED on the next model, its gonna be even more. But Apple right now, even though is not being outright praised for it, they aren’t being knocked for it either by PA. Wide open hypocrisy.

For me, its not about who wins, its about being consistent and honest and that is something the media never is about. All they care about si clicks and advertising dollars and doing whatever it takes ot get them.

Where’s the guy with the “Stoptalking” username. We need you……. now!!!!!!

28. ctdog4748 (Posts: 324; Member since: 05 Mar 2016)

If you don’t like PA and think it’s all biased towards Apple, then just STFU and go to sammobile.

My coworker’s S7 Edge is experiencing this exact thing. Told me last night that the night before after charging it and unplugging it the phone got crazy hot and the battery was draining like mad.

5. Planterz (Posts: 2086; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)

He just told me that there was indeed an update for the Oculus app that he noticed yesterday. He already did a factory reset, which fixed the problem.

9. Planterz (Posts: 2086; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)

The app on Play shows the last update was on the 19th, but it’s likely there was a much more recent one that got pulled because of this issue. Otherwise, we’da heard about this several days ago and not within the last day or so.

10. rick_mobile (Posts: 280; Member since: 13 Dec 2010)

Exact same thing happened to me. Deleting the oculus app or restoring will fix it.
I was team lagdroid for a couple hours but now it’s like butter.

8. Chidoro (Posts: 5; Member since: 20 Sep 2016)

I thought the answer would be, “return it and purchase a different phone”

11. kiko007 (Posts: 2422; Member since: 17 Feb 2016)

I seriously want to like Samsung. Like, I even picked up an S6 Edge last week, and I like it, but I can’t see a reason to neglecting all of these battery problems. Not to mention the “knights” that patrol every forum looking for anyone who doesn’t praise Samsung as their God. They make me want to avoid Samsung products altogether with that nonsense.

12. RebelwithoutaClue (Posts: 2933; Member since: 05 Apr 2013)

I know what you mean. I picked up the S7 Edge because I liked it (and still do) but feel almost ashamed when those S-boys open their mouths that I even own a Samsung. Good thing it won’t be for much longer though lol. I am glad my phone doesn’t get updates automatically (since I am running a rooted custom S-rom)

23. TerryTerius (Posts: 1805; Member since: 10 Apr 2014)

To be totally honest with you, I suspect that there is a bit of sensationalism at play here. Much like with antennagate or bendgate with the previous iPhones. If there is an issue, it will be focused on and blown way out of proportion because it creates controversy, which generates revenue. Same exact reason that journalists tend to focus on negative stories, no one gives a damn when everything is working as planned.

In no way shape or form am I trying to delegitimize problems that occur within devices, that is an inevitability. It is impossible for any company on this planet to mass produce items without a certain number coming out of the factory with defects no matter how good their quality control is. But, those negative experiences are nearly always only an issue for a small minority of consumers. But if you read tech sites, you would believe every issue is a miniature Armageddon. The story will get run into the ground so long as it generates clicks. Especially since there is only so much to talk about when it comes to tech news anyway.

Samsung definitely screwed up here and deserves the criticism. No one rational would deny that. But it is true that literally every incident that occurs across the world will be looked at under a microscope, and they will be held to a different standard than every other tech company on Earth because of it.

All I’m saying is, context is so often left out. For every one of these horror stories about Sony, Samsung, HTC, LG, Apple, etc. There are hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers Who haven’t had any issues, or at least have only had minor ones.

24. kiko007 (Posts: 2422; Member since: 17 Feb 2016)

Well said…… I just wish more people were as reasonable as you and Rebel on this site.

27. TerryTerius (Posts: 1805; Member since: 10 Apr 2014)

And you are one of my favorite people on here as well my dude, no question. It just comes down to tribalism and the anonymity of the Internet. People have a tendency to gravitate towards being in camps, division is a natural state for us. That is exacerbated when you don’t have to see somebody in person and it makes it easy to get really nasty, or throw logic out of the window in favor of emotion.

In all honesty, I legitimately believe that comment sections have single-handedly done more to polarize people and reinforce world views than any other invention of the modern age. You can find validation no matter what your stance is on anything, and that makes you much less likely to open yourself to contrary opinion or facts that discredit your stance. When you can choose your own reality, actually reality becomes meaningless.

It is true that you can come across amazing people, stories, and information in comment sections. Some conversations can be life-changing, for the better. Making you look at the world a new ways, or making friends that can last a lifetime. But I am leaning on the side of thinking they’ve done more harm than good.

30. RebelwithoutaClue (Posts: 2933; Member since: 05 Apr 2013)

Look at you… all reasonable and sensible 😉
Always a pleasure to read your comments…

29. RebelwithoutaClue (Posts: 2933; Member since: 05 Apr 2013)

Did you just call me reasonable? You take that back, you troll 😉

But thanks, likewise you’re one of the few balanced people out here that just like tech in general. Balanced at least when the trolls don’t get under your skin. Man.. you can go mental then 😉

31. kiko007 (Posts: 2422; Member since: 17 Feb 2016)

Trolls can do that to people. It doesn’t help that I’m…… let’s just say confrontational…….by my nature. But hey, can’t be helped I suppose :D.

32. RebelwithoutaClue (Posts: 2933; Member since: 05 Apr 2013)

Must be that passionate latin blood lol

17. TechieXP1969 (Posts: 10138; Member since: 25 Sep 2013)

It’s so funny, that after the Note 7 episode, all of a sudden everyone is so worried about their phone getting warm.

What were they doing before. We are to believe that all of a sudden, everyone phone is getting hot and everyone is scared its gonna blow.

Since the iFans keep blaming Samsung for everything, I’m blaming Apple. They knew the Note 7 was going to continue the @$$-kicking the S7 already was giving the iPhone for the past 2 quarters, so they paid Samsung SDI to sabotage the Note 7 30 day early release, so that the Note 7 would appear at its normally scheduled release time to give Apple a chance to get sales with their 3-peat iPhone.

Since they blame Samsung for everything, I’m gonna blame Apple for all of Samsung’s problems.

Cannot uninstall or disable “Gear VR Service” on TMo S6Edge.

I’ve removed just about everything else, but this one does not allow you to do anything but roll back to the original version. Doing so will just cause another auto update to get pulled sooner or later.

34. skymitch89 (Posts: 1300; Member since: 05 Nov 2010)

My Note 5 wasn’t getting hot, but the battery was draining like crazy. Like 30% in less than an hour just sitting. I ended up just resetting the device back to factory and uninstalling/disabling apps that I don’t use. Since then, I’m only down 15% in 7 hours.
