Everyone knows Samsung's previous release Galaxy Note 7 was a big controversy. There were many reports that it was catching fire and caused several damages. Now, Samsung has released Galaxy S7 and S7 edge in March and according to them, it is the safest smartphone.
There were rumors of Galaxy S7 and S7 edge as well because of the previous release of the company. So, Samsung posted a message in their newsroom regarding Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.
According to Samsung Newsroom's Statement on the Galaxy S7 Family, "there have been no confirmed cases of internal battery failures with S7 and S7 edge among more than 10 million devices used by consumers in the US. And they stand behind the quality and safety of Galaxy S7 family."
There were many cases of Note 7 battery burst that everyone was afraid to buy Samsung phones. They recalled all the devices of Note 7 and because of this incidence, their third quarter profit was dropped by 30% in part.
As stated in Forbes, "the FAA, America's civil aviation regulator, banned the Note 7 from all U.S. airline flights. By September 1st, 2016, Samsung had already recorded 35 cases around the world of Note 7 catching fire."
It is explained that every smartphone must meet the safety standard of FCC (Federal Communications Commission) before it makes it to the market. FCC measures electromagnetic emissions of every gadget via a unit called Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), to ensure that smartphone does not pose a health hazard to the customer.
As Samsung recalled the Note 7, many S7 and S7 edge users were confused because of number 7 branding. As of now, there are no official complaints in Galaxy S7 or S7 edge as stated by Samsung so users don't need to worry about that. However, due to problems in Note 7, the company faced a huge loss.
