Samsung know you can stop updates happening right?

Also, who is stupid enough to want to keep one of these? It's not a matter or pride is it? Because this is utter stupidity.. it will invalidate any/all insurance anywhere you take it, if your house burns down, or your car catches fire because of one of these.. you're insurance totally does NOT cover it, it's a recalled, dangerous product...

Why are people so stupid >.<

Dear knows why so many people have not returned their devices yet. Surely nobody tech literate enough to own a flagship phone hasn't heard of this issue yet?

Or why can't you blame Samsung? Not the parents fault the phone explodes. It's not like there's a warning like, "Hey the phone is going to explode in 3...2...1. Boom". If they got it right the first time, wouldn't even be an issue?

What is an issue is the fact that 10% don't want to return the phone.. now those people. That's there fault.

10% of people are stupid then. Maybe they think they'll have a more valuable device if it's so rare. Either way they're crazy.
