The last couple weeks have been a bit rough for Samsung. At the beginning of the month, the company had to halt shipments of the Galaxy Note7, due to reports of them catching fire. A day later, it would issue an informal recall, offering to replace the device for anyone who was concerned. Since then, one could barely go on the Internet without seeing a report about how a Note7 caused some type of injury or property damage.
