Many of us Android devotees are familiar with the worldwide Samsung Galaxy Note 7 recall. Millions of the Note 7 had already been sold after its August 2016 release. Due to some exploding battery issues, Samsung has issued a worldwide recall. It seems the battery was too big for its location. This pinched the battery and led to it shorting out.
