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. This is going to cost Samsung a fair bit of cash to sort this out but the good news is, new models with the problem fixed are starting to come back on to the market. Anyone with a model is required to return it for a refund or exchange.

In light of this worldwide Samsung Galaxy Note 7 recall, I thought I would link you to some definitive information on the recall and what observers have noted about the problem. Social media has gone into meltdown over the recall and thousands of words written about the topic.

  1. This is indeed very unfortunate for samsung. The phone is probably the best available right now but it got a bad reputation because of these exploded phones before it even released in most countries. I remember the iphones used to have problems with explosions as well, but that was on a much smaller scale and we don’t hear anything about that anymore. As a samsung galaxy s7 edge owner i’m very happy and know that samsung is making more great phones, it’s just sad to see how they went from a big succes (galaxy s7) to a big loss even though the new phone itself is great.

    1. Hi Bart,

      It is a shame but just as you will stick by Samsung and iPhone users do likewise, the future is not bleak. Samsung will recover and continue to succeed. Obviously this was a setback they didn’t need or forsee!
