STORY TELLER: LATRELL JENNINGS
Man, I'd hate to be Samsung right now.
Samsung's Galaxy Note7's have been actually exploding if you haven't heard so far, so Samsung voluntarily did a recall that wasn't official yet. How nice. Now, is there going to be a second recall? If so, this is getting ridiculous.
I've been a long time loyal Samsung fan (since the flip phones) and I've never seen anything like this, it sucks to see something like this. Now there's meme's everywhere about this. Even GTA added the Galaxy Note7 as a bomb. I'll admit it was pretty funny.
But anyways, this is becoming a big problem, especially with the iPhone 7 out, even though it has a hissing problem with it. My guess is people are going to be a little worrysome on whether they're going to get the Galaxy S8 due to this Note7 problem. I'd REALLY hate to be Samsung right now.
But this guy had a Galaxy Note 7, and you'd know it's legit because it has a green battery. Green battery means "safe". You sure about that, Samsung?
But it started smoking then bursted on fire just like all other cases. Everyone was safe, the flight didn't take off yet (it was actually boarding we've been told) then the plane was evacuated, gate was closed, and everyone came out with no injuries, like most cases. But the plane's carpet was scorched. Wow.
Another crazy thing is there's already 5 reports of "safe" Note7's exploding. What's going on with these batteries!? Samsung, it's time to dump your suppliers and find new ones. Use whoever Apple, Microsoft, and other people are using for their phones. Because no one ever heard of a Windows Phone exploding.
But this is overall sounding like to be a pretty scary thing. Even with these reports, I'd still pick up a Note7. I just don't see it exploding. It didn't even reach nearly a million reports.
What do you think about this? Would you still pick up one anyways? Me? Yeah. But it all comes down to what you want. There's always the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. It didn't explode.
