Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is close to being recalled once again since a unit that was supposed to be safe almost ignited a plane earlier this week. Even if Samsung finally gets it right this time, it would not be a surprise to see some Note 7 users switching to Apple or another brand. Sprint has just announced that its customers who want to drop the Note 7 can choose any other handset to replace it with, including the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 7 Plus.

According to a Sprint representative quoted by Recode, "If a Sprint customer with a replacement Note 7 has any concerns regarding their device, we will exchange it for any other device at any Sprint retail store during the [CPSC's] investigation window."

For now, there is still a chance for the recent Southwest Airlines incident involving a replacement Note 7 to remain an isolated incident. We will surely hear more about this in the near future, so stay tuned. In the meantime, if you are a Sprint customer who owns a Note 7, you might want to take advantage of the carrier's offer and switch to an iPhone 7 flagship.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
