 Last year, Samsung had a disastrous outing with the Galaxy Note7 due to faulty batteries that kept over heating and exploding. In a bid to save its face, Samsung recalled the Note7 devices and had their batteries replaced but still the they kept exploding. Finally, Samsung had to announce a massive recall of all the note7 devices sold. A refund were made to the customers or an option to pick the S7 with a gift from Samsung.

 Samsung incrued losses in Billions of US Dollars from the failed production of the Note7 which then gave iPhone a slight edge over Samsung as the most sold phone in 2016.
