Exchanged Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Phones Face Fresh Battery Complaints

Samsung's exploding battery recall just seems to be getting worse and worse. It seems that some people are getting fresh replacement phones with batteries that overheat and lose battery life extremely fast. frown

Fresh reports of overheating and batteries losing life quickly have surfaced for new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 units after exchange for the handsets began earlier on Monday in South Korea following its recall, according to South Korean broadcaster YTN. YTN interviewed multiple customers who received new phones and complained that the phones' batteries quickly drained and overheated. But there have been no reported fires or explosions, unlike with the initial batches of the Note 7.
