Apparently, there are plenty of parties who are not satisfied in the way Samsung sold a dangerous smartphone and handled the first and the second Galaxy Note 7 recall, followed by total discontinuation of the device. The first of these class action lawsuits have come into public view as Motherboard explains that the three plaintiffs filing the case against Samsung are doing so on the ground that Samsung inadequately handled the Note 7 recall process. Instead of suing the company for selling smartphones that have the potential to explode, they are claiming that Samsung did not arrange for sufficient replacement devices while initiating the recall/exchange process.


"Samsung informed consumers they would have to wait several days, and even weeks in many cases, before receiving a replacement smartphone. During this time, and as a result of Defendant failing to provide consumers with an adequate replacement, consumers continued to incur monthly device and plan charges from their cellular carriers for phones they could not safely use."


Samsung refused to comment on the situation citing pending litigation; however, we would not be surprised if more of these lawsuits begin to appear from here on. The more prominent and demanding ones will of course involve customers who actually had a Note 7 that caught fire and caused property/physical/psychological damage.

Are you as excited about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 as we are? If so, then you will be glad to know that we have found a video circulating on YouTube which shows us the iris scanner of the upcoming Note 7 in action and from what we can tell, it's super fast. The video seems to be of Asian (most likely Chinese) origin and was found on the YouTube channel of TechTastic. Take a look yourself to see what we are talking about exactly.



In case you had not noticed already, let us point out that the Galaxy Note 7 we are seeing over here is a flat version with a flat front and a flat back. However, this is possibly a prototype that will not reach the hands of the consumers as Samsung has probably decided to go only with the curved screen variant this year. Nevertheless, it is good to know that the iris scanner is working so flawlessly on the prototype and presumably, it will only get better when the final version is unveiled in about a week's time on August 2.

Android Nougat 7.1 is rumoured to launch with the upcoming Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones. Now that the October 4 press event is just two days away, we are pretty excited to see what the company has in store for us. However, if you want to experience a few of the features that Android Nougat 7.1 will bring with it, right now on your phone, Action Launcher 3 has you covered. The launcher now has multiple unique attributes of the next Nougat OS incorporated into it, thanks to the latest update.


Some of the features included in the update are Quickcuts (launcher shortcuts), round icons, All Apps drawer, new widgets, Google "Pill," tinted dock background, new folder styles from the Pixel Launcher, caret page indicator and much more. Action Launcher is free to download and use but accessing some of the features here will cost you a few bucks. If you are planning to get the LG V20, the Pixel phones or any of the upcoming smartphones with Android Nougat on them, this might not be of much interest to you. But for those of us who are using phones that will probably never see the actual Android Nougat OS running on their current devices, this could be a nice little taste of the future.

This is a hot week for smartphones as the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 just came out two days ago and we already have a video of the actual iPhone 7 for the first time. Apple fans have a pretty good idea about what to expect from the upcoming iPhones, thanks to a myriad of leaks and rumors, but now we have an actual live action video of the Apple iPhone 7, courtesy of TechTastic on YouTube, even though it is probably the property of GeekBar. The video actually confirms what we saw earlier with the mock-ups built from Foxconn schematics. The iPhone 7 prototype looks exactly the same as it did in those pictures.



If you are excited about the upcoming flagship, you will just need to wait for about a month more for its official unveiling, which would be either on September 6 or 7 according to sources. The iPhone 7 will go on sale from from September 16, but pre-orders will probably start on September 9. You will be able to own the 32GB version for $649, the 128GB version for $749 and the 256GB version for $849. For more on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, stay tuned.
