The global recall of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 does not seem to help the company from the embarrassment apart from the confirmed financial loss. The company issued a statement apologising to consumers who had pre-booked Note 7, for the delay in the shipment. The statement clarifies the issue that the company found with battery cell and is now shipping Samsung Gear VR free of cost with the Note 7 along with Rs. 3,300 worth Oculus content voucher to deliver the best experience with the shipped VR headset.
This comes right after three Australian airlines banned the use of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 during the flight or to be operated by flight operators. U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is still mulling over banning the Note 7 in flights all across the USA.
The trouble started after widespread reports of exploding battery in the latest flagship Note 7, in the Galaxy Note series. These reports followed a detailed report by XDA where the phone was throttling the performance despite top end internals. In fact, the discussion gained traction after XDA and The Verge referred to each other while talking about the performance of Galaxy Note 7.
