The biggest smartphone vendor in the world is still at a loss as to how and why its Galaxy Note 7 suffered overheating and exploding issues -- Samsung admitted as much during a shareholder meeting held recently this week.

About a week ago, Samsung decided to recall every unit that has been sold of its latest phablet offering, the Galaxy Note 7, due to reported claims (at least 35 separate cases) of overheating and even exploding battery issues. Some however pointed out that the decision by the South Korean tech giant to voluntarily recall the Galaxy Note 7 may not be enough because apparently, some units are still being displayed in store shelves.
It is official -- Samsung has decided to recall its newest phablet, the Galaxy Note 7, due to issues related to batteries. Reports from affected Galaxy Note 7 owners have varied from overheating to catching fire and even exploding, but whatever the cause, the South Korean mobile giant is choosing not to take any chances.

T-Mobile has teamed up with Samsung in order to debut a couple of new Galaxy mobile devices -- the Galaxy On5 smartphone and the Galaxy Tab E tablet. Both devices come with budget friendly prices, and should help in giving subscribers of T-Mobile a more expanded range of device choices that are affordable.
Samsung is offering yet another native mobile app, and as a matter of fact, has already listed it on the Google Play Store. The Samsung Music app has now been made available by the South Korean tech giant on the Play Store. But it should be noted though that the mobile app is still in beta, which may be a bummer to some. However, it does make it easier for Samsung to launch updates to individual apps without needing to deploy new updates to the whole software.
