In what turned out to be the biggest blemish in the world's number one smartphone manufacturer's reputation, millions of Galaxy Note 7s from customers are making their way back to the manufacturer for a replacement. While this move may cost Samsung more than a billion US dollars, they had to take the initiative after 35 smartphones around the world blew up while being charged. Samsung has finally provided an explanation behind the exploding Samsung SDI batteries just recently and here is what they said in their official statement


"based on our investigation, we learned that there was an issue with the battery cell. An overheating of the battery cell occurred when the anode-to-cathode came into contact which is a very rare manufacturing process error"


Lithium itself is a reactive chemical and the truth is that any smartphone powered by a Li-ion battery does have the potential to explode or catch fire, if there's a short circuit. In case of the Note 7's battery however, some of the batteries provided by Samsung SDI had an inherent manufacturing flaw which resulted in overheating. The overheating led to multiple Li-ion cells cracking open, causing a thermal runaway. So if you have already bought a Note 7, it's time to take it back to the South Korean OEM!

Feuds on Twitter are definitely not a new thing and according to Motorola, neither is Samsung's Always On Display or AOD. In fact, Motorola went as far as calling it stolen technology on twitter in light of the brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 which has the AOD feature. In their exact words, "In what galaxy is it okay to steal competitor phone's cool features?"


Apparently, they are of the opinion that Samsung stole the idea of their Always On Display from the Moto X which Motorola had unveiled more than three years ago in 2013. The Moto X 2013 had a similar feature that had been termed as the Active Display. While it can be argued whether or not Samsung had copied the idea behind its own AOD from the Active Display, Motorola was probably not right in asserting that they are the pioneers in the technology. Nokia had done it back in the year 2009 with the Nokia N86 and had again brought the technology to the fray in 2013 with the Glance Screen found on their Lumia series of Windows powered smartphones. To be frank, it is difficult to claim a particular piece of tech as your own "property" if we are to ensure advancement of the tech world as a whole.

Android

 

Gartner has unveiled its latest research about the state of the phone market in the second quarter of 2015, and there are two big conclusions: First, that Android is Dominating in the Top smartphones market worldwide. Secondly, that Google's Android and Apple's iOS together now control a whopping 96.8% of the smartphone market, and the other 3.2% is getting even smaller year-by-year.

 

Apple's iOS is actually gaining new ground, growing to get a 14.4% of the market with 48.1 million devices sold in the quarter, up from a market share of 12.2% in the second quarter of 2014.

 

Q2,2015

 

Google's Android, on the other hand, remains the dominant leader, but while it has grown the absolute number in units shipped to 271 million (up from 243.48 million in Q2 2014), its share has actually dwindled to 82.2%, down from 83.8%.
