The Galaxy Note 7 has been officially recalled by Samsung

Samsung has officially recalled, its latest flagship device the Galaxy Note 7 globally. The device was getting great reviews all over world less one complain. The battery would explode while the device was on charge. There were 35 reported sets which have had the issue so far. Korean news agency Yonhap first reported that Samsung was preparing the recall yesterday, and a spokesperson later confirmed to The Wall Street Journal that sales had been halted in the company’s native country of South Korea. Yonhap said that Samsung was in discussions with carriers including Verizon Wireless regarding how to handle the recall process. According to an unnamed Samsung official that spoke earlier to Yonhap, the vast majority of Note 7 phones should be unaffected, despite the sweeping recall. “Products installed with the problematic battery account for less than 0.1 percent of the entire volume sold,” said the official. “The problem can be simply resolved by changing the battery, but we’ll come up with convincing measures for our consumers.”   Samsung has also stated that, this issue will be handled properly and the handsets will be replaced by new units. Below is the statement given by them: Samsung is committed to producing the highest quality products and we take every incident report from our valued customers very seriously. In response to recently reported cases of the new Galaxy Note 7, we conducted a thorough investigation and found a battery cell issue. To date (as of September 1) there have been 35 cases that have been reported globally and we are currently conducting a thorough inspection with our suppliers to identify possible affected batteries in the market. However, because our customers’ safety is an absolute priority at Samsung, we have stopped sales of the Galaxy Note 7. For customers who already have Galaxy Note 7 devices, we will voluntarily replace their current device with a new one over the coming weeks. We acknowledge the inconvenience this may cause in the market but this is to ensure that Samsung continues to deliver the highest quality products to our customers. We are working closely with our partners to ensure the replacement experience is as convenient and efficient as possible. Picture Source:...

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 with Gorilla Glass 5 Ultimate Scratch and Hammer Test – [Videos]

A few days back we saw the Galaxy Note 7 undergo a series of rigorous drop tests, today we take a closer look at how Samsung’s new beast of a device manages to survive these scratch tests. Be warned, this video might not be for the faint hearted so do watch it at your own risk. After looking at the video, we were quite amazed by the end result which clearly proves that even though Gorilla Glass 5 is somewhat durable against drops but when it comes to being scratched, the device is quite vulnerable to scratches. For those of you who are planning to buy this otherwise amazing device, we recommend using a good quality screen protector along with a durable back cover to keep your device protected at all times. Also check out the video below to see how the Note 7 fares when kept under a knife and...

How well does the Galaxy Note 7 survive these drop tests – [Video]

How well does the Galaxy Note 7 survive these drop tests – [Video]

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is one of the first devices that come with the all new Gorilla Glass 5 which the company claims to be four times more durable than its predecessor and the current competition. According to recent lab tests, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 survives up to 80 percent of the time when dropped face-down from 1.6 meters onto rough surfaces, far outperforming competitive glass designs. Well that claim has been put to test by our friends at XEETECHCARE who did a drop test with a brand new Galaxy Note 7. After conducting several drop tests from different heights, the front glass managed to survive every drop but much to our surprise, the glass at the back of the device got cracked in just the first drop which does raise a few eyebrows considering the fact Samsung have used the exact same glass on both sides. This proves that no matter how strong and durable the companies claim their phone display’s to be, at the end of the day one thing does stand out….Glass does Shatter!! For those of you who are planning to purchase this otherwise amazing device are advised to purchase a good quality back cover as well as a screen protector to save your device from any unfortunate mishaps as far as cracking or damaging your phone is concerned. The Galaxy Note 7 is set to arrive worldwide starting August...
