Samsung Is Telling Customers To Turn Off Their Galaxy Note 7 Phones Now


There have been reports of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7’s blowing up and catching fire, which has led to Samsung releasing a statement telling people to “immediately turn off their Galaxy Note smartphones.”

Samsung has also stopped production of the exploding Galaxy Notes and have asked “consumers with either an original Galaxy Note 7 or replacement Galaxy Note 7 device to power down and stop using the device." Samsung has recalled over 2.5 million devices since September due to the faulty lithium-ion batteries overheating in the phones.


Samsung is currently still trying to rectify the issue and according to U.S. federal regulators, all carriers of the Galaxy Note 7 are entitled to full refunds.
