Despite the Galaxy Note 7 recall, some owners are not bothered to replace their unsafe units. Samsung is trying everything it can to force them to replace their unsafe Galaxy Note 7s with the safe ones. Verizon’s Galaxy Note 7 flashes a warning message if it’s an unsafe unit.
Samsung has also rolled out a software update to limit battery charging on unsafe Note 7 units to 60 percent. However, we’ve noticed that this limit can be increased to 80 percent by turning off the ‘Limit maximum charge to 60%’ toggle. We don’t recommend it, though. Also, Samsung suggests using the Power saving mode to extend battery life since the charging is now limited.
Thanks for the tip, Kerep!
