Last year’s Note7 debacle was one of the more frustrating we’ve seen in smartphones yet, and Samsung has now found the official reason as to why the phone had to be pulled.
The Galaxy Note 7 has had its ups and downs this year, because while it grabbed accolades, it also suffered major problems and was recalled. And now there's one more nail in the coffin.
If you still haven't taken your Galaxy Note 7 back for some reason or another, then aside for the risk of explosion, you may about to be given your best reason to return the thing: it's about to get a little less battery friendly.
Oh Samsung. What happened? You had such a great phone, and now as replacement units apparently hit a recall of their own, the future of the Note range is up in the air.
Samsung's best phone yet is back, and less problematic than ever.
The Note 7 recall is getting a little messy, and something is happening that we've never seen: outright banning of a phone on Australian flights.
It's now no longer just an optional thing, because with at least one case of an Aussie Note 7 catching fire, local owners are being advised to switch phones off.
One of the year's biggest threats to the juggernaut that is the Apple iPhone has been recalled post reports of phone meltdown, and while the news is bad for Samsung, the response may not be quite the same.
