Over a million people are still using the Galaxy Note 7


Last updated: October 20th, 2016 at 03:31 UTC+02:00

It’s believed that more than a million people worldwide are still using the Galaxy Note 7, despite the CPSC’s decision to issue a second official recall of the handset following numerous reports of replacement models bursting into flames without any warning.

This latest statistic comes courtesy of South Korean publication Korea JoongAng Daily and cites customers who claim that they aren’t too keen on giving up their beloved Galaxy Note 7 because they simply can’t find another phone they like and believe to be evenly matched.

Personally, I find it a little worrying how consumers are willing to put the Galaxy Note 7’s unique features above their own personal safety, especially after Samsung announced that it would discontinue the unit and issue a global recall because it has public welfare concerns.

If you own a Galaxy Note 7, we urge you to take advantage of the recall options the manufacturer has put in place as the possibility of it bursting into a ball of flames is very much real. Up until December 31, you can swap the device for a replacement model of a different smartphone or a full cash refund.
