Update (10/12): In an unfortunate turn of events, Samsung has fully recalled and halted sales of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Considering Samsung’s current official recommendation is to turn off and return the Note 7, we can obviously no longer officially recommend the phone. It’s a shame too, as this device was easily the best phone ever created by Samsung, and perhaps the best by any OEM in smartphone history, with a strong 9.3 rating in our original reviewing. For more details on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 recall and production halt, check out our Galaxy Note 7 recall information hub. Here we are – Samsung went ahead and skipped a whole number to bring out their newest Note device. Though the main reason makes a lot of sense – Samsung wanted unification of their Galaxy line – the very notion of skipping a whole version is an interesting one.

The Galaxy Note 7 is definitely the star of the moment, as Samsung confirmed pre-orders for its flagship smartphone exceeded all expectations. In fact, the strong demand for the Galaxy Note 7 forced the South Korean company to adjust the release date of the smartphone in many European countries. Although the phablet should have been made available in late August, many customers have been informed that the device won't arrive until the first week of September. Germany is one of the countries that didn't got any delays, at least until now, so the Galaxy Note 7 pre-orders should still ship on August 30, as initially confirmed by Samsung. But it looks like many customers who pre-ordered the Galaxy Note 7 have already started to receive their units. Most of the smartphones delivered by Samsung in Germany come from the same warehouse in the Netherlands.

Today, we're going to witness the unveiling of two smartphones that will likely be remembered as the best Android handsets of 2017. At the time of writing, the announcement events for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are merely a few hours away, and both devices are expected to sell like hotcakes thanks to their awesome features and innovative design. Despite the Galaxy S hype, a news update for an older Samsung phone also managed to attract a considerable amount of attention.

After months of speculations and contradicting information, Samsung finally confirmed that it will sell refurbished Galaxy Note 7 devices. The news broke out yesterday, and although the Korean tech giant didn't go into too much detail as to when or where exactly will that happen, it mentioned that the decision will be largely based on consumer interest in local markets. As you may know, Samsung was forced to recall all Note 7 smartphones due to defects which caused some units to combust when charging. After several different probes indicated that there are no other problems with the handsets except for the batteries, Samsung's decision to sell some of its recalled inventory seems like a sound idea – the company will mitigate some of its losses, and consumers will get a chance of owning a premium phone for a fraction of the price. The reconditioned units are expected to come with new batteries of a smaller capacity, probably 3,000 or 3,200 mAh.So, if the Note 7 ends up in your … [Read more...] about So, refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 – are you getting one?
