Samsung Galaxy Note 7 second recall wrapped up in a warning message to consumers?

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 second recall wrapped up in a warning message to consumers?
Several months ago no one could have imagined the drama that Samsung is now going through. As soon as the first reports about exploding Galaxy Note 7 smartphone made headlines in late August, Samsung has tried to investigate and understand what's causing these issues.

Unfortunately, the bubble burst in early September when Samsung issued a formal global recall for the Galaxy Note 7. The South Korean company was under a constant barrage of ironies since word about the recall got out and that didn't slow a bit.

Well, the things got even more complicated after several replacement Galaxy Note 7 units start exploding last week. Since this shouldn't be embarrassing anymore, the only concern for Samsung should be the safety of its customers.

In that regard, the handset maker recently issued an official statement that warns Galaxy Note 7 owners about the issues the supposedly safe units are still plagued with. Furthermore, Samsung advises customers who use an “original Galaxy Note 7 or replacement Galaxy Note 7 device” to power it down and stop using them.

Even though Samsung can't yet issue another global Galaxy Note 7 recall until it completes the investigation, the statement surely sounds like a preliminary action.

It's also worth noting that Samsung announced that it will tell all carriers and partners to stop sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note 7. The statement also encourages customers to “take advantage of the remedies available,” as in switch to a different smartphone or ask for a refund.

A second recall of the Galaxy Note 7 seems inevitable, but the real question is whether or not Samsung will dare launch yet another version of its flagship. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 v3.0 is something we refuse to believe in, but we don't rule it out.

Bye bye to the Note 7, you've brought great joy to Samsung haters. I wouldn't be surprised if they renamed the Note series next year. S Pro or Plus?

Despite the fact that many hate on Samsung, but I just found from this issue that the blinded Samsung fanboys are way worse than iSheeps Deny, stubborn, and insult in thousands of posts.. Especially in this site!

Blind fanboys are all equally stupid and annoying bruh, the number of Samsung sheep here were greater than iSheeps in the past, but due to the Note 7 issue, the iSheep trolls have skyrocketed, making it even.

If note 7 is completely revoked then the 8 should have a completely new name that is not connected to the S line

They should rename it Samsung Note Edge. This no way looks like a Note.

What a tragedy and embarrassment for their user who bought note 7 for 900$ Just to go through recall process for two consecutive times.

You know in my language, when directly translated, we have a saying that goes like this: Do not laugh at the FALLEN, because the road is still slippery ahead. I am sure everyone here can remember how much loud Samsung was with the bendgate, mocking Apple left, right and center with their commercials even though Apple still went on to sell a record breaking number of iPhone 6's. Apple has not even uttered a single word about the Nuke 7 and goes about its own business, proving to us that You Cant Buy Class. Hopefully Samsung learns a lesson or two from Apple.

What would Samsung learn from Apple? How to make a lackluster piece of junk.

18. truthwins unregistered

Yes samsung must learn How to market and make profit out of a lackluster piece of junk by brainwashing their users with good quality commercials.like if you don't own a samsung so you don't own an samsung

Aw a troll who thinks he matters and people who values his opinion. Guess what? I don't and probably countless people wouldn't miss him if he disappeared from the site. You're lilely on this site for green thumbs and attention. Again you are not Samsung you're just a failure of a human being who lives n a basement.

Aw a child who thinks, "I don't value your opinion, therefore I'm sure very few other people do." You're likely just on this site to be rip on people that insult your korean boyfriend. Are you samsung?

LOL, I saw this coming long time ago. Note 7 is a fundamentally flawed device. Good thing for this incident is that Google's Pixel now has great chance to succeed. I hope they advertise the $hit out of it and remind people that their phone is better and safer.

This is what happens when you make a broke mans iPhone. Attention to detail is what makes Apple great and the Chevrolet of the group (Samsung) is just a giant "Me Too" Trying to play with the Lamborghinis. Pick up a real phone and get yourself an iPhone 7 Plus.
