Carephone Warehouse gives customers who ordered the Galaxy Note 7 £25 for the inconvenience of waiting through Samsung's shipping halt
One of our loyal PhoneArena readers has sent us a text message he received from U.K. retailer Carphone Warehouse. The message confirms that Samsung is delaying the shipping of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 because of a quality control issue. As we've told you, a number of Galaxy Note 7 units have exploded while in the process of being charged.

Samsung plans on running additional tests on units that were supposed to be shipped, in an attempt to find the cause of the explosions. While consumers have been snapping up the device leading to shortages in certain markets, the issue with the battery, and a new problem that leaves the S Pen stuck in its home might give some potential Galaxy Note 7 buyers a reason to pause. And with the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus about to be unveiled on September 7th, Samsung does have a reason to be concerned.

As far as our loyal reader is concerned, Carphone Warehouse is giving him £25 ($33.19 USD) for the inconvenience of having to wait to receive the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 that he ordered. Yesterday, another PhoneArena reader pointed out that Verizon had pushed back the shipping date on orders for the Galaxy Note 7 to September 7th. Previously, there was practically no delay in shipments. He also noted that there were no units to be had at Verizon stores in a 100-mile radius of New York City.

Thanks for the tip!
