As a Samsung user, the Galaxy Note 7 seemed like an ideal product to purchase when it hit stores. It demonstrated latest innovations in various parts of the phone that intrigued me. The camera work seemed to be a great work, the high resolution screen looked incredible , the device itself was just looking amazing. Weeks later, after the release of this phone, many reports have emerged about the battery malfunctioning and some exploding while charging. I found it rare how these type of phones were able to go off like that after they were released.

The latest incident was of Note 7 exploding inside a Jeep while it left charging inside. The battery had exploded causing the car to catch fire. The problem that seemed to cause the malfunctioning of the phone was the battery. The lithium battery apparently overcharged and heating up the battery cells, causing it to explode. This has been the case for many incidents in regards to this product. Here is a link the car incident that occurred in Florida

After the announcing of Galaxy Notes 7 exploding many have been the phones and obtaining other models, and are waiting for any further notice for when they will be available again. I think that such production of this phone had been rushed where they might have been careless on producing the battery quality. I found it interesting how this have been occurring after its release. The release could have taken more time, but I feel like they just wanted to release the phone to satisfy the customer. It was a good thing that I waited a while to see how the Galaxy turned out to be.
