Note 7 received a lot of praise all over the world due to its stunning design and great specs but the smartphone’s success was soon hindered when people started reporting their Note 7 catching fire without any particular reason. Samsung did say that the cause of the issue was the faulty battery unit where the battery’s anode and cathode ends (positive and negative) come in contact with each other causing the battery to short and in turn it catches fire.

If you own a Galaxy Note 7, you should quickly head to your retailer or carrier to exchange it. If they no longer accept exchange, then return them the Galaxy Note 7 and get another Android smartphone.
