The Serious Case of the Flammable Note 7

Recently, you may have heard once, twice or nearly every day on the nightly news of new cases of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 phones randomly catching fire or exploding around the country.  Tests have been made and recalls issued but, as of yet, there still is not a direct known cause as to why the phones are overheating to such extreme temperatures.  In a surprise move that may save Samsung in the long run, the company has stopped all sales and shipments of the phone and the product has been pulled from circulation entirely.

In the statement Samsung issued last week, the company said “Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note 7 or replacement Galaxy Note 7 device should power down and stop using the device.” That surely put a wrench in things for device users for whom smartphones have become an integral part of everyday life for work and personal use. The dependability of phone technology is, arguably, one of the highest priorities for consumers so, if you’ve been affected by this, we feel for you.

If you recently purchased a Note 7? Here’s some replacement phones to consider.
