    Well that's disappointing, I was hoping to pick up a non-explosive refurbed Note7 at a reduced price for the wife as her Note3 is getting on a bit. I guess they need to recoup that massive financial burden they incurred by the recall.

    I'm very happy they're doing this. Chucking them all, even if extracting precious metals, would have been a _massive_ problem. There's enough e-waste being dumped into landfills without brand-new products being dumped there too. And I imagine there are quite a few customers out there for a Note 7 with a slightly smaller battery.

    It's a shame they didn't offer them back to the original buyers first, assuming they're the identical bar the smaller battery, for a reduced fee.

    I think I'd snap one up now if I could, as there's not a cat in hell's chance I'm buying the ergonomic nightmare that the S8 looks to be.

    They will either end up in trash now or in a few years time when broken or obsolete, what's the difference? At least a big company like Samsung can't get away with chucking it in a landfill, too many end users will just chuck it in their general waste rather than properly recycling. It's probably better for the environment for Samsung to recycle them all now but what Samsung's statement should have said if they were being honest is: "solely to reduce our recycling costs and minimize any impact to our profits".

    For Samsung to dress this up as being environmentally responsible is disingenuous, it's nothing to do with that at all.

    Samsung - the environmentally friendly company that seals their products so end user has no way to improve battery life after 2 years and needs to buy new phone
