The Real Reason
Jokes apart, yes, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was a bomb, because it exploded due to faulty batteries. Many individuals were hurt while still having the set on them during its explosion, causing a halt in productions. Samsung then conducted a report to pinpoint what exactly went wrong with the flagship which was the ultimate rival to Apple’s iPhone 7.
Internal and independent investigations “concluded that batteries were found to be the cause of the Note 7 incidents”, Samsung said in a statement. “We sincerely apologise for the discomfort and concern we have caused to our customers,” Koh Dong-Jin, the head of its mobile business, told reporters in Seoul.
This caused the South-Korean manufacturer billions, over 2.5 million handsets were recalled. The situation got so out of hand that many airlines placed a ban on Samsung phones for air travel. Even replacing the batteries did not help, eventually, the replaced batteries also busted out causing risks to individuals.
“We have taken several corrective actions to ensure this never happens again. The lessons of the past several months are now deeply reflected in our processes and in our culture,” the statement added.
