Samsung Galaxy Note 9 a Far Cry From Explosive Predecessors
The best part about the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 isn't it's beautiful screen, sleek aesthetic, or powerhouse processor - it's how far it has distanced itself from the Galaxy Note 7. Much to the South Korean tech giant's dismay, we all remember two summers ago when you couldn't read a single publication without a headline that another Galaxy Note 7 had 'exploded' - read spontaneous combustion.
However, the silver lining revealed itself as a very unique opportunity for Samsung. After four months of problems with the Note 7 Dj Koh, Samsung's mobile chief gave a 50-minute presentation on the findings and reports as to what was going on. He concluded that the batteries were manufactured incorrectly and Samsung then rolled out an initiative to be one of the safest tech companies in the world by rolling out an 8-point safety check on phones going forward. (It's also worth mentioning that Samsung has deleted the video tour for some reason, but the website lives on.)
Koh also gave a sincere apology that felt as earnest as intended.
