Samsung has a new battery issue in its latest phone

Galaxy S9 vs iPhone X

As of now, many Galaxy Note 8 users are reporting a odd issue relating to the device's charging. Users have apparently been experiencing the inability to charge the device after the battery has fully drained out. As of this writing, it is advisable for Note 8 users who are facing the above issue to contact Samsung in order to seek a replacement. This is a less traumatic issue but will definitely affect Samsung's reputation.

One user explains that leaving the device on charge for approximately 15 minutes, returning to it to then hold down the power and volume button for around 10 seconds solved this problem for them. When customers try to charge the phone again, it doesn't charge at all. Both variants of the newly approved handsets are believed to be of the unlocked variety, whereas carrier-specific versions are yet to receive approval from the FCC.


The battery is the most controversial feature of any smartphone, be it the Apple iPhones that gets downgraded performance due to a decrease in the battery life or the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco. Once the battery of the Note 8 drops down at 0%, the device refuses to turn on or charge. Still, it's nothing of the disaster the Note 7 was, nor did it follow in the footsteps of Google's terrible Pixel 2 launch. Have you experienced issues with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 or S8 Plus? They even used different cables and chargers assuming that these things might have issue.

The news has reached Samsung and they haven't said actual fault, but the company has promised that they are working on a fix, which should be able to resolve this issue in next few days.
