Samsung has a new battery issue in its latest phone

Based on posts from users, some people do genuinely seem to have a problem while others can get their Note 8 devices working fine even after going right down to a 0 percent battery charge. But just over three months after the company launched its flagship, several Note 8 owners have reported that their handsets are suffering from battery issues. Then again most phones have similar issues if their batteries are drained to nothing.

KitGuru Says: One of the major problems with things like this happening is that batteries can no longer be removed, meaning that the user has no choice but to go through a lengthy process to repair or fix their device.

Nearly a year ago, Samsung was left with no option else to recall Galaxy Note 7, after reports from many users that its battery explodes.

Its Note 8 was meant to be its return to the Note moniker, however problems regarding its wireless charging have cropped up. "Tried the soft reset and safe mode button pushes and it won't turn on". The comments section also has a few users complaining about the same issue.

Injured in St. Petersburg Supermarket Blast
That bombing was claimed by a group linked to Al-Qaeda which said it was a message to countries engaged in war with Muslims. Sources told local media that the explosion was equivalent to 200g of TNT. "About 6:30pm there was the sound of a blast".

For the time being the issue doesn't seem to be too widespread, and only appears to be affecting users in the USA for the most part, but SamMobile has pulled together numerous forum posts and complaints that suggest this is more than just one or two isolated incidents we're dealing with.

That being said, Samsung representatives, such as "SamsungMel" in one thread has suggested that users utilise their warranty for a replacement. The company has bounced back with an impressive Galaxy Note 8 but battery issues are never good news, especially for a series that's been affected by that in the past.

Remember the time where Samsung phones explode?
