By now, the entire world knows about the Note 7's safety failure and even then, quite a number of the customers who had bought the phone are refusing to give it up. While Samsung and the carriers are trying to persuade everyone to exchange the potentially explosive Note 7, a few new reports have also emerged from different sections of the globe that even some of the phones in the S7-series are catching fire spontaneously. As these reports have given rise to confusion and fear among its customer base, Samsung has decided to come out with a statement which officially establishes the S7-lineup as completely safe to use under normal conditions.
"Samsung stands behind the quality and safety of the Galaxy S7 family. There have been no confirmed cases of internal battery failures with these devices among the more than 10 million devices being used by consumers in the United States; however, we have confirmed a number of instances caused by severe external damage. Until Samsung is able to obtain and examine any device, it is impossible to determine the true cause of any incident."
If you are planning to buy a smartphone this holiday season, will you be opting for a Samsung?
