In case you somehow haven't heard, the just-officially recalled Galaxy Note7 has been having some battery troubles - troubles that are leading to people and things getting burned. To differentiate the explosion-prone and revised Note7s, the Korean company is changing the color of the battery indicator in the status bar from white to green.
Although I understand it is necessary to make it clear that the revised Note7s are not the recalled models for safety reasons (at airports, mainly), I can't help but think that Samsung could have gone with a more aesthetically pleasing route. Granted, as an enthusiast, I am probably pickier than the average consumer; for instance, I think that the Note7 is uglier than the S7 edge because of the Note7's more crammed positioning of the Samsung logo on the front (anyone else?).
