Samsung Is Killing the Galaxy Note 7, and Lawsuits Are in Full Swing

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 recall is still in full swing, following several claims of the phone overheating and/or exploding. Following a second round of battery fires in replacement phones, the company announced today that it will no longer manufacture or market the phone.

Last month, Samsung recalled 2.5 million phones and aimed to fix the problem by offering replacements or repairs. But since then, Galaxy Note 7 users have reported that some supposedly “fixed” devices were still overheating, smoking, and even catching fire. Samsung urged users to power their phones off while the company figured out the problem.

Samsung’s official position is that all Galaxy Note 7 users should return their phones, whether old or new, to the retailers from which they were purchased. There are extended return and exchange periods being offered because of the current recall.
