Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 and 8 Other Smartphone Fails

...

We really liked Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 in our initial review this summer. Unfortunately (or fortunately), we didn't have any first-hand experience with the device's hottest feature. You know, where its battery bursts into flames at a moment's notice.

Even the replacement handsets Samsung shipped to carriers are exploding—on planes, in pockets, on nightstands. Nobody knows why; it's nuts! As a result, Samsung has now (wisely) ceased production of the Note 7, and is working with carriers to collect all the devices from the wild. It's a bit of a catastrophe.

But while Samsung the corporation will almost certainly survive this bungle (if at a huge operating loss for the year), it remains unclear if the Galaxy Note brand will live on. The Note has a true cult following, but will devotees risk life and limb for a snazzy phablet?

Still, the suits at Samsung mobile HQ can find comfort in one thing: While the Note 7 is one of the first big phones to literally go up in flames, it's not the first to do so figuratively. Check out the slideshow for other recent mobile device disasters.
