Samsung Says Turn Off Galaxy Note 7



  • And, I was going to purchase one of those, too!! 😞

    Oh well, I will have to see what other smartphones are around and their specs.

    Google Pixel?



  • @hobbit666 Yes, did see that via Google+ and Twitter a few days ago. Have signed up my email, for further interest. Thanks for the reminder though!! 🙂



  • At this point it's looking like the Android phones to look at are

    LG
    Google Phone

    That is all.

    I had an LG phone and really enjoyed it. I have a Motorola phone right now but they were purchased by Lenovo so not sure I would get one again.

    Dang, that's right. That leaves a long list of....
    Google
    to get Android phones from.



  • Well, HTC is making the Google Pixel, so who knows if they will put out their own HTC branded phone or not? I suppose they could become a player in the US market again.







  • Well, that's what the get for attempting to count like Microsoft and their versions of Windows.



  • There are rumors that Samsung didn't actually replace/fix the batteries, instead that perhaps they only did a software update that limited the charge to 80% capacity.

    This doesn't explain the phone burning up on the airplane. Supposedly it wasn't being charged or even used. It was in the user's pocket, getting hot, he pulled it out of his pocket and tossed it on the floor and it burned the carpet as well.

    Definitely bad news for Samsung - How do you trust any Samsung phone now?



  • @Dashrender Let others buy them first, lol.

    FTFY 😛

  • Well I guess that solidifies my descion for my iPhone lol 14th day to return is right here



  • Sadly...I turned mine off for good. I have a Pixel XL on order. Currently using a Moto G4 until the Pixel arrives.

    I have been offered to use and have an iPhone 7+ 256GB model as my daily driver but I just can't go iOS. It purely a preference than an prejudice. Plus, I like having file access upon plugging it in via USB. I don't like the whole iTunes Sync thing. I know I can copy photos from the phone to my PC for my main photo storage but can't simply delete from the file system.

    And believe me, that iPhone 7+ is calling my name but will try to be patient for a week until my Pixel XL arrives.

    It is most certainly blind prejudice then because what you say you cannot do works
    perfectly.

    Show me! 🙂 Serious...I plugged in an iPhone to my Windows 10 PC and went to delete pictures from the phone from FILE EXPLORER and it said I didn't have permission...how do I get around that...? At the moment. I have an iPhone6 Connected right now it doesn't even show up in File Explorer but iTunes sees it.

    Driver issue. I have come across that a few times since changing to Windows 10.
    You have to go into device manager and change the driver and then windows will see it like it is supposed to but then iTunes will not be able to see it.

    This was never a problem for me on Windows 7 and 8.

    Yeah, you have to put the iPhone into a special mode to do what JB is talking about. it's not a default behavior. And, as he said, once you do that, iTunes loses access to those files. It's just Apple's heavy handed way to really make you just do it their way. Which for the masses is great, offers them less chances to screw things up. Just really wish there was a check box for - *yes I know by enabling this that Apple is not responsible for anything i do to the phone and I might be required to reformat the phone to factory OS to solve problems I cause"

    I heard today that Apple has taken this approach with their backups and brought it to the Mac now too, the 'other files' thing that you can't just access and cleanup, you to use another utilities to break into it.

    No you do not have to put your phone in any special mode, and it is the default behavior. It simply works assuming the right drivers are loaded. Prior to Windows 10 the drivers allowed both for me.



  • @JaredBusch thanks for the tips and advice...

    maybe this changed with a later version of iOS, it definitely was the case when I tried it years ago. Without that mode, you couldn't use the iPhone like a USB stick, it was basically only accessible through iTunes

    Since at least iOS 7.

    I wrote a guide here on ML on how to pull not only saved voicemail, but everything from the iTunes backup of an iPhone.

    While a valid guide, that is not the point of concern from @garak0410. His point was that iPhone photos could not be accessed directly.
