There are very a few brands of smartphones available in the market that you can trust blindly. Whether you like it or not but Samsung is definitely one of them. After this incident though, you’ll question the reputation of Samsung. Take a look…
Samsung is one of the most respected brand of smartphones in the world. It is regarded as the biggest competitor of Apple in the smartphone product category. You buy this phone for a great user experience but unfortunately, this experience was ruined for one user.
Tham Hua, from Victoria state who was visiting Western Australia, said his Galaxy Note 7 exploded in his hotel room, bursting into flames. He said, “My brand new Note 7 exploded this morning while I was still asleep, it was plugged in and charging”.
#2 The Faulty batteries
Now this is not something that you’d expect from a brand as big as Samsung and specially from a phone as elite as Note 7! But well, this happened. On its UK website, Samsung wrote: “Based on our investigation, we learned that there was an issue with the battery cell. An overheating of the battery cell occurred when the anode-to-cathode came into contact, which is a very rare manufacturing process error”.
Our reliable sources inform us that the faulty batteries came from Samsung’s own subsidiary SDI.
#1 The Warning
Looking into the seriousness of this matter, US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a warning not to charge or switch on Note 7 on board aircraft. I mean, you obviously don’t want such horrifying incidents to repeat.
“Qantas and Virgin Australia have told passengers not to turn on Note 7 or charge them on flights,” A news report said.
