Hey, @usersFRrD4kJkx, as there is no easy way for me to speculate as to the current status of every single device, there is no blanket statement I can provide. If you could follow the steps I posted above, either contacting me or your regional support is the quickest way to find a resolution for your concern. 🙂
Same problem for me....TWICE now.
Returned the phone 3 weeks ago to Samsung to have it "repaired."
Their "repair" didn't work and now my phone is on the way back to them again.
2 days there, 2 days there, 5-7 days for them to "repair" it. I have had this phone for about 3 months and it has spent almost 1 month out of my possession for repairs.
This is the first problem I have ever had with any phone and my first experience going without a phone since the late 1990's.
Samsugn will not just give a replacement new one, they keep insisting that all they can do is "repair" the phone I was sold. So here I am without any phone for another almost 2 weeks after spending $800.00 on a note 8.
To everyone that has this phone, do not ever let the battery drain ever, you may learn the hard way that your phone has issues as well.
Furious, Disappointed, considering never purchasing Samsung anything ever again.
I'm sorry to hear about your experience, @userUlqLL5O35x, it looks like you already have a repair set up with us. If there is anything else we can do for you at this time, please let me know!
Sorry to hear your case, and thanks for the advice. Not knowing if my phone also has this bug is a nightmare, especially since Samsung doesn't seem to take it seriously and want to repair design flaws, which at best gives us a repaired phone at the expense of a new phone.
Wouldn't have purchased this if I had known this earlier.
Question: Did you happen to try the troubleshooting steps? (Am wondering in case you missed something that works to receive it without 'repair'.)
To Samsung, you asked if anything can be done - the answer is obvious isn't it? 1. Give the affected used a replacement, not refurbished, but a new device. 2. Give them something additional to compensate for the lack of understanding of the emotional trauma of having a new device being repaired for months.
If (as you claim) very few phones are affected with this bug, recall and replace all of them.
The worst thing you can do here is to do nothing, and the second worst is to try to 'repair' a new phone for manufacturing defects.
Same here. Happened to me Sunday 1/14/18
Just shipped my $1000 brick to Texas to be repaired.
Only 4 months old.
Fortunately, I kept my original note so I have a phone and text.
Looks to me like this is going to be a repeat problem with no permanent fix in sight.
If you just keep replacing the battery and charging system with the same thing, it will come back.
Clearly a design flaw.
Maybe as a temporary fix, software gives a warning at 20% and turns off at 10% and will reset and allow power up when it is being charged and is above 20%.
What is the fix from Samsung?
