Samsung’s woes with the Note 7 never seem to end. Tonight, during the Presidential debate, the company announced that they have temporarily ceased production of the belabored phone.
The trouble began for the company back in September, when numerous reports surfaced that some of the company’s phones’ batteries were exploding, causing minor injuries in the process. This led to a worldwide recall of the phone, and a warning issued by Oculus to Gear VR owners to stop using the phone in their headsets. However, in the last week, further reports have surfaced that some of those replacement phones were continuing to have issues, including one that exploded on a plane.
