Just in case you were speculating when you’ll stop getting those “please turn off your Samsung Galaxy Note 7” cautions before takeoff. Now you won’t get those messages as the problem is solved. Samsung revealed that they have replaced almost half of the affected phones.
Samsung Exchanged Almost Half of the Affected Note 7 Phones in US
“Samsung announced that about half of all recalled Galaxy Note 7 phones sold in the U.S. have been exchanged through Samsung’s voluntary recall. Additionally, 90 percent of Galaxy Note 7 owners have been opting to receive the new Galaxy Note 7. Since the phones became widely available on Wednesday, September 21.”
Samsung Exchanged Almost Half of the Affected Note 7 Phones in US. That latest stat must be encouraging for Samsung, consumers are happy to stay with the same phone. As long as it’s cured of any possibly dangerous side effects, the users are happy with it.
Exchanging this many in just a single day or so is remarkable. But the left over half million or so may take a little longer to get back. There are many people out there who perhaps feel they can’t probably have one of the bad phones. Some are blessedly unaware of this entire story. It’s difficult to trust. But it’s sure that we are still going to hear about Note 7 fires in the coming months.
So let’s hope that the exchanged phones don’t do the same as the company has worked really hard. As we all know that Samsung and Apple are competitors, so it was a big blow for Samsung.
