In what can only be considered the ultimate irony, Verizon on Friday said it won't issue Samsung's upcoming Note 7 update due to safety concerns.
“Verizon will not be taking part in this update because of the added risk this could pose to Galaxy Note 7 users that do not have another device to switch to,” Verizon said in a statement.
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

One year 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.

This marks the end of Samsung's three-month-long recall effort stemming from a handful of exploding Note 7 batteries that have caused burns and fires. "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

One year 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. There's not a lot of them, mind you, as Samsung just revealed that the Galaxy Note 7 recall program in the United States was relatively successful as over 93% of all units have so far been returned to the company, while all customers were either issued a refund or a replacement device. Now, the South Korean smartphone manufacturer and wireless carriers had to make some rather aggressive moves to get certain customers to return their potentially dangerous devices. Among...
