Samsung Can't Match Up With iPhone Afterall: More Galaxy Note 7 Defects Arise
South Korean tech giant Samsung released its latest monster phone model, the Galaxy Note 7, on Aug. 19, which was less than a month before the grand launch of Apple's iPhone 7. The battle between the two mobile tech leaders though already seems to reach its conclusion as the Note 7 is facing its doomsday with its numerous defects.
The sale of Samsung's latest flagship is now on hold as it was found to be prone to bursting into fire. Days after it was officially released on global markets, Samsung Galaxy Note 7's sale was halted and is now hurting the company's name and fame as everyone seems to be shifting to Apple because of the dangerous defects of the said smartphone.
A shocking story came out just a week after Samsung made a recall of the Galaxy Note 7, wherein a 6-year-old boy from New York was rushed to the hospital after hurting himself from an exploding unit of the model. According to reports, the young boy was just going through a couple of videos with his smartphone when it suddenly exploded.
Linda Lewis, the boy's grandmother, claimed that the explosion led to their house alarms getting activated, New York Post reports. With burns to his body, her 6-year-old grandson was taken to Downstate Medical Center for immediate treatment. Lewis' family already reached Samsung about the incident, but has remained silent about the details of their conversation.
Prior to this disturbing incident, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission gave the public a warning on how dangerous the observed defect of the Galaxy Note 7 Lithium-Ion batteries could be. The agency has advised owners to stop using the device. Samsung admitted receiving complaints about the battery malfunctions of the Note 7 and ordered a global suspension of the phone sales and recall of units that were already sold.
But while these defects are resounding in the news, there is a way for owners to find out if their unit is safe or not. According to GSM Arena, there are units produced that are unlikely to explode. One only needs to check out the big blue "S" and a small black box near the handset color indication on the bar code label of the handset's box. The "S" label is said to be an indication that the device is "Safe" and does not contain the faulty battery that prompted the recent sales recall.
