Galaxy Note 7 Exploding Battery Issue Gifts Samsung’s Victory To Apple’s New iPhone 7

Ewan Spence:

At the start of last week, everything was going great for Samsung’s mobile division. The Galaxy Note 7 was picking up critical acclaim from the media, sales were passing the two million units mark, and long-time rival Apple was vulnerable thanks to the zero-day malware hack and reports of design issues with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

One week later Apple’s teflon-coated reputation remains intact as it marches towards the triumphant launch of the just like last year’s phone with a bigger number’ iPhone 7 as Samsung faces an embarrassing recall of potentially explosive Galaxy Note 7 phablets and the resulting damage to its reputation and finances.
