Samsung Galaxy Note 7 officially banned from flights in China beginning October 27
China is one of the last countries that is banning the Galaxy Note 7 from flights. Chinese customers have been among the few that haven't been asked to return their smartphones at after the first recall, even though Galaxy Note 7 explosion incidents have been confirmed in the Mainland before the second recall.
However, beginning October 27, those who still own the Galaxy Note 7 won't be able to take it on board flights across China. The information has been recently confirmed by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).
China's decision to ban the Galaxy Note 7 from flights makes sense in light of the latest reports that suggest Samsung has been rather arrogant towards Chinese customers. Still, the South Korean company had the same attitude in the United States, which is why many Galaxy Note 7 owners have decided to file lawsuits against Samsung.
Samsung is now trying to convince all consumers to return their Galaxy Note 7 units, but since just asking doesn't always get you results, the handset maker recently announced that it will push a software update in Europe that will limit the battery charge to 60%.
A similar update was rolled out last month in the United States, which was probably the main reason that some have decided to return their Galaxy Note 7 phones. If you still own one, we strongly suggest that you switch to another smartphone or ask for a full refund..
