Samsung Note 7 gives Big B battery charging headache
New Delhi: On a day when India’s civil aviation regulator lifted the restrictions on the in-flight use of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone — but only those purchased after September 15, superstar Amitabh Bachchan posted another grudge against a device that has caused battery explosion fears worldwide.
“T 2395 – I have Samsung Note 7. Battery charge restricted to 60%. When will it allow me to go 100? Mr Samsung please respond! zara jaldi,” tweeted Bachchan on Friday, inviting immediate reactions from his fans.
“@SrBachchan sir leave it, may blast even … several incidence reported,” tweeted Vikas Singh.
Amid battery overheating issues, Samsung has recalled nearly 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 smartphones globally. The phone is yet to come in India.
But for Bachchan, Note 7 is giving him a different kind of headache — of battery not being charged to its full potential.
Well, wait till Samsung reacts to this or offers Big B another Note 7 device — made after September 15, of course!
