When a company launches their best product and expects it to be a best seller, but due to some mishaps, the device gets negative feedback from people using the device. That has what happened with Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, which brand launched last month with hopes of positive feedback by the time of Apple iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus launch.
But unfortunately, with a number of news coming in of the Note 7 battery explosion around certain regions, the South Korean giant had to stop the shipment of the device reportedly. In the wake of that FAA, the federal aviation administration of the USA got together with TSA and major U.S. Airlines to determine whether Samsung Galaxy Note 7 should be allowed on flights or not.
A complete ban of the new Samsung handset might be implemented soon. As FAA isn’t in favour of allowing the grant to carry items on a plane that can blast/explode in any case. The Agency wouldn’t prefer airplanes stay in the sky with such items inside the carrier.
Currently, the handset maker has stopped selling the handset and is reportedly exchanging units sold for other phones. While most of the users who bought Note 7 in the U.S. are exchanging devices, there are some people who are playing Russian Roulette as they continue using their Note 7 smartphone despite so many reports popping over the last weeks about the explosion of the device.
If you have been living under a rock up until now, and planning to buy Samsung Galaxy Note 7. We recommend that you stop right there with any such thoughts until Samsung resolves the issue with their latest phablet iteration in the Note family. We can only hope it would be done soon.
In the meantime, FAA would make a decision on whether or not to allow the Galaxy Note 7 board a plane in the country. It is reported that 1 Million Galaxy Note 7 have been sold since it’s launch in August. It also depends on FCC, once they get involved U.S. Airlines would be forced to follow their decision if they ban the phone from flying list.
Do make a note that the explosion cases were a handful, and you might think yours would be different, but it is always recommended not to play with fire literally.
On the other hand, China enjoys the fact that their Galaxy Note 7 have different battery, which most likely means no danger of explosion.
