Samsung halts Note 7 production, tells users to power down their devices

Samsung Electronics halted production of new Galaxy note 7 devices, and the company told all its global partners to stop selling the smartphones. Samsung issued a recall due to faulty batteries - but the recall is not enough and in several cases the new units also exploded. Samsung also asked consumers to power down their devices.

The Note 7 has a 5.7" 2560x1440 (518 ppi) flexible Super AMOLED dual-edge display - which DisplayMate says is the best performing mobile display ever tested. The excellent display is certainly not helping Samsung at this stage...
