Samsung is trying its level best to discourage users from using Galaxy Note 7 and get back all the units sold till date. Recently, Samsung has sent a Galaxy Note 7 software update to the units sold in South Korea and Europe by T-Mobile which limits charge to 60%.
Almost a month after stopping Galaxy Note 7 production and sales, today, the Korean Company revealed that nearly 85% of the recalled Note 7 units sold has been either returned or exchanged in the US.
In a statement Samsung stated,
“As of today, nearly 85 percent of all recalled Galaxy Note7 devices have been replaced through the U.S. Note7 Refund and Exchange Program, with the majority of the participants opting to receive another Samsung Smartphone.”
No doubt, that it is a decent rate of return but it seems that Samsung will not be happy until and unless it gets back all the units sold.
In another statement, Samsung said,
“We remain focused on collecting the outstanding Galaxy Note7 phones in the market. To further drive participation, we will be releasing a software update in the coming days that will limit the phone’s ability to charge beyond 60 percent, as well as issue a reminder pop-up notification every time a consumer charges, reboots or turns on the screen of their Note7 device.”
