Samsung to ‘Brick’ exploding phones.

GalaxyNoteA few months ago exploding Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones were all the rage, if you didn’t have one you weren’t cool, if you did have one, you were too hot (because you may have been on fire)

Now though, it’s pretty common knowledge that those phones are bad and should have been returned.  And 97% of people who had those phones HAVE returned them for a refund or a new non-explodey phone.  However because Samsung doesn’t like constantly getting calls about housefires that they accidentally started, they’ve decided to take the last 3% of the phones into their own hands by force….


They’re going to release an update on the 19th of December which will stop the phones working.  Effectively turning them into large (hopefully safe) paperweights.


So if you just wouldn’t listen, and decided that you were ok with your phone/bomb that’s too bad! Because the choice is no longer yours.  Your phone is broken, get a new one.  Time’s up.

My only question is, why did it take so long for them to do this anyway?
