Samsung has released a statement that its flagship smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are safe. The trouble that the company had with Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has begun to settle down. About 85% of Note 7 owners chose to stay with Samsung and exchanged their units with a Galaxy S7 Edge. But there were some isolated incidents of S7 explosions and Samsung wants to reassure its safety
Samsung stands behind the quality and safety of the Galaxy S7 family. There have been no confirmed cases of internal battery failures with these devices among the more than 10 million devices being used by consumers in the United States; however, we have confirmed a number of instances caused by severe external damage. Until Samsung is able to obtain and examine any device, it is impossible to determine the true cause of any incident.
As for our case, we do have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge as a replacement of our Note 7 and honestly we feel so safe with it. It never got hot nor even warm when using it extensively. If you still have a Note 7 on hand, please do have it replaced now.
