Samsung has been facing serious issues with Galaxy Note 7 phones that have a high propensity of batteries failing and bursting into flames.

Several incidents involving personal and property damage have lead to Samsung  recalling hundreds of phones worldwide.

The phone was recalled officially in the U.S. once, and Samsung launched exchange programs in other countries. But the new models continued to see further issues, with replacements catching on fire in early October.

This eventually led to Samsung permanently discontinuing the Note 7 and telling users to stop using their phones and to return them.
