Samsung issues official apology for their recent “Exploding” troubles

Samsung issues official apology for their recent “Exploding” troubles

Samsung has been having quite an “explosive” year (pun intended) and 2016 would certainly go down as one of the darkest years in the history of the South Korean Tech giants. What started off with the whole exploding Note 7 fiasco  was quickly followed by exploding washing machines as well. All these mishaps have certainly dented the company’s immaculate reputation, especially when it comes to innovation and safety of their devices. In light of these unfortunate events, Samsung have issued an official apology to the consumers and especially those who were effected with some of their aforementioned devices. To show its commitment to the apology, the South Korean giant has run full-page apology ads in popular newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and The Washington...

Samsung officially stops Note 7 production!

Samsung officially stops Note 7 production!

Samsung being in a pickle, is the understatement of the century at this point! After multiple incidents of the Galaxy Note 7 exploding in various parts of the world, the South Korean manufacturer tried to do right by its customers and re-called the devices. Sadly though, even the replacement devices were going boom as well. So Samsung had to make an extremely hard call and stop the production of the device altogether. The fault lied mainly with the device’s battery. According to sources, the battery manufacturing was outsourced, but the real reason for the device to catch fire is still unconfirmed. Samsung pulling the plug on the Note 7’s production has majorly dented their stock value, with a loss of around $ 17 Billion. A Samsung spokeswoman referred to an earlier statement from the company: “For the benefit of consumers’ safety, we stopped sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note 7 and have consequently decided to stop production.” Samsung will need to pull up its socks and work around this issue, as quickly as they can, as for sure there will be ripple effects. Chances are that this incident will surely impact the sales of the next device Samsung will launch, the S8 seems to be the likeliest contender so far. So, for those who were lucky or unlucky to use the device, got to experience what in all fairness was a great smartphone overall. RIP Note 7!...

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.
