It has been 59 days since a recall was announced, which is longer than the phone was even on the market (Aug 19 - Oct 11).

So there has been plenty of time for anyone to exchange their phone for a different handset. Verizon haven't personally telephoned every one of their affected customers to arrange this?

Indeed, I'm not sure how anyone can develop such an emotional attachment to a handset, with less than 2 months from release to recall.

It has a few evolutionary features over the previous Note 5 (sd card, dual sim, waterproof, usb-c, iris scanner) but not anything I'd risk personal injury for.

I have a nexus model and it's stuck on 5.x

Used Nexus 6 phones can be had on ebay for $AU206 but if it costs me two hundred bucks just to get the lastest OS on a soon to be unsupported phone then they really aren't that much better than the competition.

(Yes, I'm cheap.)

Perhaps the seaweed can be made into pellets for similar nutritional benefit, to be fed to grain-fed livestock..

The article doesn't state whether it's the process of chewing or the chemical composition of the food that causes the reduction. Maybe grass-fed animals can also benefit by taking a dietary supplement of seaweed-juice added to their water supply?
