Samsung's next generation device the Galaxy Note 7 was released after months of hype, but has been dogged by problems. The South Korean technology giant was forced to announce a global recall of the device following reports of explosion caused by its battery.

The company managed to replace Galaxy Note 7 batteries worldwide, but the problem reportedly persists with consumers complaining of battery overheating and quick exhaustion.
