Galaxy Note 7 which launched on August 2, 2016, was a generation leap from the predecessor Note 5 and boasted top of the line specifications and features. Shortly after initial reviews described the Galaxy Note 7 as the ”best Android phone ”, a number of cases were reported by users around the world about the phone overheating, and even exploding for some.Warnings, Ban and Global RecallAlmost a week after the sales kicked off in the US, first reports of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 overheating and exploding surfaced online.

Later a number of users around the world posted photos and videos about Samsung Galaxy Note 7 overheating and catching fire.
And here s the most interesting finding: CFOs say they plan to spend their tax windfalls mostly on higher investment in the U.S., as well as on R amp;D and higher wages. They expressed a strong bias toward revenue growth over cost reduction (64% vs. 18%), and an equally strong bias toward investing cash rather than returning it to shareholders (57% to 14%).Critics of the corporate tax cut predicted the tax windfall would mostly go to fund share buybacks and dividends, citing studies of the 2004 tax break as precedent. Others argued the cut was badly timed from a macroeconomic perspective providing a large dose of stimulus late in the business cycle, just as interest rates are rising and fears of overheating are emerging. And indeed, the CFOs surveyed cited new concerns about rising government debt.

The fourth Android Oreo Beta build for the Samsung Galaxy S8 series arrives only a couple of days after it was confirmed by an official, indicating the update s development is moving forward according to the plan. The previous build was already relatively stable, yet the fourth beta release contains quite a large list of improvements for a wide variety of issues, ranging from the device sometimes overheating and rebooting while playing games, to pictures not being shown in the gallery application. The update should improve battery life and fix an issue that prevented the iris sensor from responding, and a bug causing temporary device freezing was also addressed. Following the fourth beta update, users should also no longer have any difficulties signing in with their Samsung Accounts or syncing data with Samsung Cloud. Additionally, random vibrations should no longer occur, and a couple of applications including Theme and GameTools should no longer intermittently force close. As usual, Samsung advises users to back up their data before applying the latest firmware, and likewise, beta participants should ensure that their smartphones have at least half of battery charge left before installing the new software build.Samsung might launch the first public Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus in late January, assuming that no major issues will be found in the fourth Android Oreo beta release. Otherwise, according to Samsung officials who previously spoke about the update s potential release window, the company might have to push back the public launch to February 2018 in case of any notable problems. The Oreo beta test for the Galaxy Note 8 is also expected to start in the coming weeks.
But on stage, something strange happened. LG 's entire presentation focused on the stunning FullVision display. LG elaborated on the brand new design it adopted for the handset and the new user interface elements. It showed us the new camera powers and the phone 's safety features meant to prevent overheating accident.LG left out some important details during the event. It didn 't share certain specs, and it said nothing about the phone 's availability or price. It turns out that LG has been hiding a few things about the phone. The bottom line is that even if you wanted one, you can 't get the best possible LG G6 version out there because they 're going to be a lot more different than we 'd have hoped.
HP has detailed the recall on a dedicated web page where it confirms the model numbers affected by the recall. The products affected by the issue include specific HP, Compaq, HP ProBook, HP ENVY, Compaq Presario, and HP Pavilion Notebook Computers sold worldwide from March 2013 through October 2016, and or were sold as accessories or spares, or provided as replacements through support.An excerpt from the HP web page for this product recall read;
Updated: After publishing our initial story yesterday, HP got in touch with us to provide a statement on the recall: "On January 24, in cooperation with various government regulatory agencies, HP is announcing the expansion of a June 2016 worldwide voluntary safety recall and replacement program for certain notebook computer batteries. This recall involves HP lithium ion battery packs for notebook computers sold worldwide from March 2013 through October 2016. Less than 1% of all HP notebook computers sold during this timeframe contained an affected battery. HP will provide a replacement battery for each verified, affected battery, at no cost. HP encourages customers to validate their batteries on the HP Battery Recall website " Original Story: It looks like Samsung isn 't the only company to run into some bad luck with batteries lately as HP has announced that it is recalling thousands of laptop batteries due to risk of overheating and catching fire. The recall affects 101,000 laptop batteries in total, all sold between March 2013 and October 2016 in various parts of the world.
Although LG did not divulge what, exactly, the new technology is that it will be using, the company did highlight that it would be introducing heat pipes into the LG G6. We have seen several other handset manufacturers, most notably Samsung, use heat pipe technology to keep chipsets and other internal smartphone components cool. The technology, which has been widely used in laptops and even desktop computers, typically uses a sealed copper tube containing a liquid that expands into steam and dissipates elsewhere on the device; as the liquid is converted into steam, it absorbs a significant amount of heat, which is removed from the source and dissipated elsewhere. LG state that heat pipe technology can reduce temperatures by 6% to 10%, plus the design of the LG G6 smartphone keeps those components that produce heat as far separated from one another as possible. This typically means the application processor, modem, charger circuits and battery.On the subject of safety tests, LG are conducting a heat tolerance test said to be 15% hotter than the minimum requirements, or 150 degrees Fahrenheit. LG also highlighted that the device is undergoing a new, more complex accelerated life test, which means that the device is being subjected to harsh treatment including being dropped, exposed to high voltages and similar, thus simulating a lifetime of wear and tear. LG appear to be taking the issue of device safety very seriously, and well they might as the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will have scared a number of customers, who will be looking for the reassurance. Let s not forget that LG s 2016 flagship, the LG G5, failed to ignite the sales charts as customers sought the Samsung Galaxy S7.
Yes, you read that right Apple 's iOS devices crash more than their Android counterparts. As startling as it may sound, a new research suggests Android devices work more often than Apple 's famed iPhone and iPads. A new State of Mobile Device Performance Health Report by Blancco Technology Group reveals that iOS devices had an overall failure rate of 62 percent worldwide in Q3 2016, compared to 47 percent for Android devices. While that failure rate is still bad, it is worth noting that Android fared better than iOS the no compromise mobile ecosystem. The report says apps crashed at least once on 65 percent of iOS devices tested in Q3. That number for Android was exceptionally better at 25 percent. Apple users also reported rise in temperature of the device post iOS 10 update. iPhone users worldwide reported about overheating when devices were charging. "One reason for this is that when users first download and install iOS 10, it updates apps in the background. As a result, the update eats into the device 's battery power and life and may cause the device to heat up more than usual, " the report states. Apple recently introduced iOS 10 which initially bricked few iOS devices and also had stability issues. Apple was quick to issue an updated version of iOS 10, which improved stability and also helped tackle the overheating issue. According to Blancco Technology Group 's report, Apple iPhone 6 had the highest failure rate of 13 percent followed by iPhone 5S and iPhone 6s at 9 percent each. The iPhone 6 and 6s Plus rounded up the top five list with 5 percent and 4 percent failure rates respectively. It is disheartening that a year old iPhone is on the top five in terms of failure rate. On the Android end, Samsung devices led the failure rate with 11 percent. Xiaomi and Lenovo smartphones saw failure rates in the tune of 4 percent and 3 percent respectively. LeEco 's Le 2 topped the chart with a failure rate of 13 percent while xiaomi 's best selling Redmi 3S and Redmi Note 3 recorded failure rate of 9 percent. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge contributed 5 percent failure rate to the Android list. The most notable observation is that Pokemon Go emerged as the most unstable app on both the platform. The augmented reality app contributed maximum to the iOS platform crashing while it had a significant effect on Android devices ' battery drain. In Q3 2016, Instagram crashed 14 percent on iOS while Pokemon Go crashed 5 percent. On Android, IMS Service crashed 32 percent while Google Play Services failed 10 percent. Samsung 's TouchWiz Home failed 3 percent, showing the excessive adoption of Samsung devices in the market. Karthekayan Iyer Karthekayan.Iyer@9dot9.in
