Non-exploding Note 7 batteries to be marked with an ‘S’

September 15, 2016

Look for this letter when purchasing.

Samsung is still in the process of recalling most of its initial Galaxy Note 7 shipments due the faulty exploding batteries and while our verdicts on the phablet won’t change (it’s awesome), it’s best that you have your unit replaced if you have the defective version.

One way to know if you have the new, ‘non-exploding’ version of the Samsung Galaxy Note S is to look at the label on the side of the box. If it’s marked with a big ‘S’ that means you’re safe. The logo appeared on the new batch of units delivered in South Korea but it is still unclear if they will follow the same pattern everywhere else.
