In a rather dark turn of events, a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 exploded in China recently. The incident was blamed on the use of third-party equipment, namely a USB-C cable. None are surprised, though, thanks to the low quality of third party products in China.
Unfortunately, one week after the incident and another Galaxy Note 7 explosion has erupted. While no exact details have been released, many believe that the device was also charged using third-party chargers. Report verifications are scarce, but Samsung is apparently retrieving at least one of the exploded devices to see if there’s an even deeper problem. It’s also bad news for the company. This is because they’ve also halted sales of the device in Korea, and some European countries. Is it because the Galaxy Note 7 is dangerous? So far, the blame has been put on high demand.
Are You Safe?
On the bright side, there’s no need to worry about you Galaxy Note 7. Always use official Samsung equipment, and everything should be fine. It’s gonna cost more for now, sure, but at least in the long run, nobody’s risking a random explosion out of nowhere. More information on these incidents will be revealed as the Galaxy Note 7 continues to be a best seller.
