Prior this month, Samsung had declared an unprecedented recall of 2.5 million Note 7s globally only 2 weeks after the smartphone was introduced. That move arrived after the investigation of Samsung into reports of fires found that rechargeable lithium batteries made by one of the suppliers were faulty.
Among all countries, the US was the first to take a step following the recall. Even the Consumer Product Safety Commission of the US had requested the phone owners for switching them off and leaving them off.

This news will disappoint the Samsung lovers. After being proved as the most advanced and creative device of Samsung, presently there is negative news about the Note 7 also. Some genuine images are found that reveal that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 exploded at the time of charging. These images are sourced from China and the device looks original in the images. These images are nothing but really awkward. It really looks such ugly that you would definitely want to throw it out. If you want to know the reason behind the explosion of the Note 7, you must check out these images.
Although Samsung had overconfidence about its Note 7’s superb build quality as well as the utilization of Gorilla Glass 5, some reports also showed that the glass easily got scratches. So, this news is just breaking the confidence of the Note 7.
This misfortune appears to have occurred because of the utilization of the micro-USB to Type-C converter cable utilized only for charging. You should get too much worried as this might have been because of the use of a third-party cable rather than a genuine product of Samsung.
We recommend you to use just genuine products of Samsung to perform different tasks on your phone, with the inclusion of charging. You won’t see the best results if you use the third-party cables for charging. It in fact can burn your phone.
The images show that the phone’s left side has been totally burnt and it can’t be repaired any more. It is to be noted that this is the first ever unlucky accident happened to the Galaxy Note 7.
This actually comes while Samsung have declared that they can’t meet the big demand for the Note 7. So, they just have increased the product to fulfill the demand and are on a high after the huge response from the population.

Samsung is actually popular for having lots of quality control issues. S Pen is one of them, which was previously featured on the Note 5 and there also it was placed in a wrong way.
After many complaints about the issue, Samsung launched an enhanced version that doesn’t allow the S Pen for being stuck inside the phone. Well, this is not sufficient for preventing the complaints against the Note 7.
Basically a big disappointment is that some definite quality control issues are still existing, knowing that the unit costs £755 to £800, furthermore to be a flagship of renowned mobile manufacturer Samsung. For Samsung, the journey actually doesn’t end yet because still there are many rooms for making up the issues that it’s Phablets, particularly the new Note 7, are presently facing.
Samsung is an organization which has a reputation to move above the criticisms and finally recover it. So, we hope that this time also it will get improvement by enhancing all the issues by updating them.
Thereby, the Note 7 is a living example of how challenging and creative phones of Samsung are. However, if these quality control problems still prevail in the upcoming days, it is completely certain that Apple will deal a destructive blow to its reputation by overtaking it.
