Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Battery Issue Might Be Similar To Galaxy Note 7
Samsung is now facing another battery issue with its Galaxy Note 8 handsets. Some latest technology news suggests that this might be similar to the South Korean tech company’s previous problem with Galaxy Note 7.
According to NDTV Gadgets, it has been less than a week after several owners of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 reported a battery issue. Luckily the Samsung has now ultimately answered the said issue. The South Korean-based company released a statement that it was taking all such user reports earnestly. The said official response has been highly significant since it faced a mass-level of criticism for the battery disaster on the Galaxy Note 7 way back in 2016.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 owners stated on the company’s US Community Forums that their handsets are unresponsive. The affected users stated on the forum that their smartphones aren’t accepting a charge after their battery drains totally. In most of the reported circumstances, the newest Galaxy Note model doesn’t even indicate any signs of charging when owners connected their gadgets to its charger. As a matter of fact, some users tried to turn on their phones by booting into the Recovery menu but they weren’t successful.
Galaxy S8 and S8+ Battery Issue
Apart from the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, it had surfaced that a similar issue was distressing some Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners. Also, some latest tech news highlighted the problem’s presence on the Galaxy Tab S3.
For reference, the world’s biggest smartphone maker was forced to discontinue the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which was originally intended to contend against Apple’s iPhone. This had occurred after an unruly recall that saw replacement smartphones also catching fire. The said fiasco costs the South Korean tech giant $5.3 billion (£4.2 billion) in lost revenue and reputational damage.
