Should You Be Afraid Of Buying Samsung Galaxy Note 7?

Recently the problem with Samsung Galaxy Note 7 explosions has become a serious issue for Samsung which has adversely affected its sales volume. People are still in a dilemma whether or not to buy their most desirable brand. So today we’ll be discussing all Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Explosions and whether it is safe to buy or not.

The reason behind Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Explosion

The main issue with the explosion is related typically to the battery. Most of the internet posted images of exploded Samsung note 7 around the world clearly shows that the most damaged area is on the battery side.

One cause of combustion is a problem with the “battery management system” that monitors the electrical current and normally tells a chip inside the phone to stop the current once a battery is fully charged. If either the system or chip is faulty, a battery can enter a state of “overcharge”.

“The battery can continue to charge and can become even more unstable and eventually just burst into flames itself, without any kind of external heating,” Finegan explains. (Finegan* who is a chemical engineer at University College London).

Phones don’t contain fans or the liquid cooling mechanism you find on a gaming PC or electric vehicle, so heat must radiate out into the surroundings. If that doesn’t happen, heat is generated faster than it can be dissipated or lost.

When a battery reaches about 100ºC (200ºF), its materials start to break down, triggering a chemical chain reaction that releases its own energy. This accelerates warming and leads to a snowball effect — a process called “thermal runaway”.

“The snowball effect happens so fast that, within a second, the entire cell goes from being intact to being completely destroyed,” says Finegan.


What Samsung has done regarding this issue?

In order to minimize the risk and any further damage. The company has also delivered a software update for the Samsung Galaxy Note7 that came with two features, basically – a green battery indicator for safe units that consumers have a new Galaxy Note 7 with an unaffected battery. And a big bad warning for those unreplaced exploding ones.

If you’ve already replaced your phablet with a safe version, then you’ll see a green battery icon in the status bar, the Always-on Display, and the power menu when you want to turn the phone off. The color of the icon will confirm that your device is safe.

On the other hand, if you still have a unit that’s prone to catching fire, then you’ll get a big warning message about replacing it as soon as possible. This will be shown every time you reboot the Note7, and also when you plug it in to charge. Samsung encourages its customers to go and get their Samsung note 7 replaced from their own retailers and check for the green battery icon in the status bar to confirm.

Should You Be Afraid Of Buying New Samsung Galaxy Note 7?

No! Since the reason behind the whole explosion thing in Galaxy Note 7 was its faulty battery. Now all-new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 comes with a new battery that is safe. Samsung has now continued the sales of Galaxy Note 7 worldwide. So we are hoping, soon Samsung Nepal will launch Galaxy Note 7 in Nepal too.

With the gorgeous display, elegant design, powerful processor, water-resistance feature and one of the best cameras, Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is still one of the best Android smartphones out there in the market.
