The number of explosions and fires for Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 forced the company to pull back the phone and come up with new security measures. For its upcoming devices, Samsung made efforts for high quality assurance practices in order to make sure that no other future smartphones suffer the same fate as that of Note 7’s. With the Galaxy Note 8, it seems that the company has learnt the lesson well as it has made no errors with its new smart phone.

Enlisted outside help:
For working on the battery tests, Samsung contracted with UL International. The company has been working with Samsung for quality and safety evaluation. It’s because of this, that Samsung has been able to complete a series of device and battery safety compatibility test protocols.
With Note 7, Samsung has been unlucky because the device had two prominent flaws that led to explosions in the first place. One of the most basic flaws was with the design of the Note 7 itself which was present in the upper right corner of the original battery that led to a short circuit. The other was the replacement battery’s welding defect that led to overheating of the phone. The Note 7 debacle was the most challenging for Samsung but the company has come up with Galaxy Note 8 after the setup claiming it to be free from all faults.
