Right as Samsung was about to one-up Apple, something had to go wrong. Samsung is now delaying the sale of their new Galaxy Note 7, due to battery issues which has caused some phones to even explode while charging. “The Korean company said it expected it would take two weeks to prepare replacement devices of which 2.5m had been manufactured and 1m had been sold. Stock of the phablets has been quarantined in shops and mobile phone networks around the world pending the launch in the UK and other territories which was due to take place today.” As samsung dove into the issue to find out what has been going on with the batteries, the president of Samsung’s mobile business Koh Don-Jin has stated that the phones have been completely unaffected in China. This leads us to believe that it was an American battery company that has destroyed these phones. This can relate to what we will be doing in this class because I believe it can show that when you work in groups, even though you do your part, there can be an outside source that lets you down. Tt shows that even after all your hard work is finished, there can be an outside source that does not allow your product to succeed. Be trusting of others, but also have the knowledge that not everything will work out the way you want it to.
