The carrier argues people won't be able to contact first responders should an emergency situation arise. Samsung, meanwhile, argues that people who have the Note 7 are putting themselves at risk.
“We will not push a software...

Since the Note 7 burned out pretty quickly , all the attention has shifted towards to the Galaxy S8 and Edge variant. Just yesterday we got new details about what we can expect from the S8 next year.

Samsung is killing the Note 7 in the US, but like an evil movie villain, it just won't die

2 years ago   |   By Tech Radar

The remaining 7% of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 holdouts who refuse to give up their recalled phone in the US are about to be permanently disconnected.

"Together with our carrier partners, we will be notifying consumers through multiple touchpoints," said Samsung in a statement. With 93% handsets...

Samsung Bricking Remaining Galaxy Note 7 Units In US

2 years ago   |   By Android Headlines

The Galaxy Note 7 just wasn't meant to be, but a small number of its owners are still holding onto it for various reasons.
