    Yes! Green Battery Note 7.
    I decided to go with the Pixel XL. Waiting for it to be delivered. I will hold on to my Note7. Need new phone for airline travel.

    Yes, I'm still using mine. It's my second one. Green battery. Got it from Verizon in exchange for my first one, which I got from Verizon on pre-order. I still love it. I'm still using it because there's nothing else out there that comes close to qualifying as a substitute for another year, or even more?

    That phone has the specs of what the N7 should have had out the gate. But that price point ($1300) seems hard to swallow! I still give a Kudos to Huawei rockin' the big boyz.

    Turned in my Note 7 after getting my LG V20 from T-Mobile and switching to Jump on Demand from Jump! Hopefully Sammy will turn things around with whatever turns out to be the successor to the Note 7.

    This mandatory forced update is going out in Europe for all N7s including green battery icon, won't be long before it goes global.
    http://www.androidauthority.com/samsung-galaxy-note-7-battery-limit-60-europe-724425/

    Will you be happy to continue using a phone, where the battery is limited to 60% charge, and keeps on nagging for you to turn it off and return it?

    Frankly I think they should have gone the whole hog, and locked them all into permanent airplane mode.

    Yes, but only until my Sprint Store gets a Black S7 Edge in (I told them to take their time). I really don't want to give up this phone, but I know that at some point, Sprint or Sammy will brick it. I will turn it in, but I am in no rush.

    Yes... The replacement I got doesn't work so I have to get another one! And I want to see if that deal Samsung is doing is going to come to the US! Then I will get the S7 edge!

    And I hope all users see smart enough to freeze updates! Just make the recall mandatory if you really want it back and give everyone time to get what they really want!

    I don't think you can freeze the updates. When I had the first Galaxy Note7, I had auto-update disabled. One day I got a notification for an update and I knew it was going to limit the battery so of course I ignored it. A few hours later, my phone shut down in the middle of using it and installed the update.

    They literally forced the update and there was no way to stop it.

    If T-Mobile in the US does this with the replacement Note 7 as they did with the first Note, I'll go down to the S7 edge. I can't have my battery life limited.

    What I don't understand is that if this issue is so urgent as the media likes to say, why didn't Samsung do this update already?

    I just got EZ Disabler (from the Play store) and disabled 'Software Updates' (com.sec.android.soagent). It no longer shows up listed in Application Manager, but I can still see it listed and disabled in EZ Disabler. I also disabled notifications from both the Samsung and Android instances of the 'System Updates' app.

    I'm hopeful (but not absolutely certain) that will cover me from being forced into receiving or even being notified about a new OS version. I definitely don't want my battery capacity capped. I'm not interested in even considering it until we get a definitive, complete explanation of what causes the battery meltdowns.

    Yes, still have mine. I've looked for a new T-Mobile 64GB Note 5 to replace it with, but only finding used Swappa phones available. On top of that, I'm not excited about downgrading to a phone that's over a year old when my current one is running like a champ. I plan to keep it until new Note 5s are on sale or until the Note 8 comes out. Reducing me to 60% battery won't bother me as I have fast chargers everywhere.

    I'm counting down the days until the Huawei Mate 9 is available. If that turns out to be disappointing or too expensive for what's offered (looking at you, Apple, Google Pixel) I'll just get the Mate 8.

    The Mate 9 will likely be available here in China first, and I may consider it myself.

    Nope. S7e now. Miss the Spen and the 6 GB RAM.
     

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was launched in 2016, before subsequently being removed from production over battery issues.
