Flight authorities had started to show concern regarding the use of the Note 7 by passengers while onboard ever since it was proved beyond doubt that a very rare number of the smartphones do indeed at times, explode! Cebu Pacific Air has now officially banned the use of the smartphone on their flights. Keep in mind though that you can still carry it around with you, but as long as you switch it off and don't attempt to charge it. Here's the official statement.


"In light of the recent recall of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 devices due to safety issues, Cebu Pacific (CEB) advises passengers that the usage and charging of the device are prohibited onboard all CEB and Cebgo flights beginning today, September 11, 2016, until further notice..."



"Galaxy Note 7 devices must also not be stowed in checked baggage, but may be hand-carried as long as the device is turned off at all times inside the aircraft. We sincerely hope for our passengers' full cooperation, as the safety of everyone onboard our flights remains our utmost priority,"



The US Federal Aviation Administration is speaking along the same lines and the instructions are identical to what was stated by Cebu in the above excerpt. Judging by the fact that Samsung itself has requested all users around the globe to stop using the Note 7 and go to the service centre for an exchange that will be processed as soon as possible, it might be a good idea to heed to the warnings, if you have not already.

By now, everybody knows that some units of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have a red tint issue on their screens. However, it is unclear at this point whether or not it's a hardware issue or software glitch. When Samsung stated that they would try to fix the problem with an OTA patch, what it seemed like that they were planning to give more control over the RGB of the two smartphone's screens to its customers. This almost makes it seem like the South Korean company is not even considering it to be a real problem, rather something that certain customers are being picky about.


If you are unlucky enough to get a device with the red tinge, you should be able to notice it right away. From what has been seen so far, the red tint is not exactly something that will completely ruin your experience, but it's certainly not something that any customer would appreciate after paying top dollar for the device either.

According to the China Consumers Association, many of the iPhone models are experiencing a strange issue where the phones are switching off unexpectedly. They are claiming that the affected models so far include the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. In fact, this isn't even a localised incident as consumers all over the world have reported similar problems with their iPhones in the last few weeks. Apple had in fact, issued a notice globally on November 20, while addressing the problem.


"Apple has determined that a very small number of iPhone 6s devices may unexpectedly shut down. This is not a safety issue and only affects devices within a limited serial number range that were manufactured between September and October 2015.


If you have experienced this issue, please use the serial number checker below to see if your iPhone 6s is eligible for a battery replacement, free of charge."


However, the Chinese authorities have declared that the battery problem extends beyond just the iPhone 6s and Apple has failed to "meet basic consumer needs for normal wireless communication." Some of the Chinese users are even reporting that changing the battery as instructed by Apple in their notice, doesn't solve the unexpected shutdown problem either.


It is evident that the problem is serious enough for the authorities to take notice of the matter, but Apple has not yet replied to these reports or notices till date.
