The Indian superstar Amitabh Bachchan had to say this about his Samsung Galaxy Note 7 recently:

With 22.5 million followers, this can be a big PR problem for Samsung. On the positive side, Amitabh Bachchan uses a Samsung mobile phone and not an iPhone.
But it’s a big problem that even Amitabh Bachchan has started complaining about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery problem that has persisted for quite some time now and it’s weird that the issue hasn’t yet been taken care of.
If you are not aware of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery problem, the battery has had a history of exploding spontaneously. Many Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones have exploded while being charged or even while being used. Even in India it is banned to carry a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone while it is switched on. If you need to carry it, you need to switch it on. Although Samsung has been recalling the devices from all over the world (Amitabh Bachchan by now should have returned his Samsung Galaxy Note 7 for a replacement), while the devices are being recalled, the company has rolled out an update that doesn’t allow the battery to recharge beyond 60%. This is why Amitabh Bachchan is complaining about is Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery problem: he is not able to charge beyond 60% and this is to stop the battery from exploding. This problem is going to persist unless he gets his Samsung Galaxy Note 7 replaced.
Here was a good reply from one of Amitabh Bachchan’s followers:
