Samsung Axes Note7, Tells Users To Shut Theirs Off Before It Too Combusts

Look, straight up, I have no dog in this fight: I have had both Samsung and Apple phones. I’ve loved that iPhones always just seem to work and work nicely, and I’ve loved that Samsung phones treat you like an adult and let you download and access the files that are on the phone.

I’m just trying to let you know I’m being objective when I say: having phones that explode is a very bad idea. People want all sorts of things from their phones these days, but they really don’t want something that will just up and light on fire for no reason. Dell discovered this with their laptops a few years ago.
Like most people (please don’t correct me if this is wrong), I’ve acquired most of my phones from friends taking pity on me and parting with their shitty outdated ones, so I’ve never been super picky about what features the phone has, but there is one thing I refuse to compromise on: how much the phone explodes (none, it should explode none times).
Samsung announced yesterday that they were suspending production of the phablet, but today released a further statement that it was done for good:
“We recently readjusted the production volume for thorough investigation and quality control, but putting consumer safety as top priority, we have reached a final decision to halt production of Galaxy Note 7s. Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note 7 or replacement Galaxy Note 7 device should power down and stop using the device.”

Probably a bit of a sign that their might be some flaw in your design if the replacements you’ve issued for exploding batteries are also exploding.

The phone had a very short shelf life, having been for sale in Australia for only about 2 months, will be dearly missed by huge nerds and people that were really hoping to burn their house down and claim it on insurance.
If you’re currently reading this on one, probably turn it off, hey.
