Merely a couple of months after it was formally announced nobody is talking about the Galaxy Note 7′s potential anymore. They are talking about its tendency to explode for no apparent reason. Soon after the handset was released in August reports started coming in that the Galaxy Note 7 was burning up. Samsung later confirmed that its new flagship had a battery cell defect and that it was launching a replacement program to replace all units shipped since launch with new, safe ones.
