A few incidents involving Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge handset made Samsung step forward with a statement that reassures its customers this lineup of handsets is not affected by the same battery issues that plagued the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7.

Not long after the Galaxy Note 7 disaster, various reports claimed that the Galaxy S7 lineup is affected by similar battery issues. Now, Samsung steps forward with an official statement that denies these rumors.

The note that Samsung issued last Friday reads the following: "Samsung stands behind the quality and safety of the Galaxy S7 family. There have been no confirmed cases of internal battery failures with these devices among the more than 10 million devices being used by consumers in the United States; however, we have confirmed a number of instances caused by severe external damage. Until Samsung is able to obtain and examine any device, it is impossible to determine the true cause of any incident."

Unfortunately for Samsung, the problem remains - "the true cause" might still be related to the battery itself, after all. The Galaxy Note 7 failure managed to push the company's profit 30 percent down year-on-year, and gaining back the consumers' trust is a very difficult task that lies ahead.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
