Explosion-Proof Note 7 Return Packaging

Galaxy Note 7 is dead. Samsung killed the product and stopped production yesterday.

From Bloomberg:

Samsung Electronics Co. is ending production of its problematic Galaxy Note 7 smartphones, taking the drastic step of killing off a smartphone that became a major headache for South Korea’s largest company.
Samsung had already recalled the Note 7 once last month after early models exploded and the latest move comes after customers reported that replacement phones were also catching fire. Samsung will be without its highest-end smartphone that was supposed to compete against Apple Inc.’s iPhones and other premium devices during the holiday shopping season.

What could be worse? A recall.

From Business Insider:

Now comes the recall — the company is recommending anyone with a Galaxy Note 7 “power down” and return the phone to where they bought it.
But because the phones are more likely than most to combust, this isn’t a typical recall. The phones need to be treated carefully.

Note 7 production ends. Samsung shares are 7% down. $17 billion vaporized… Very very bad.

Here is the question then:

Who’s gonna take the Note 7’s share in the smartphone market?

A better one, maybe?

Which phone maker captures more profit (not the revenue) in the industry?
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
