The South Korean mobile manufacturer, Samsung, had promised not repeat similar mistakes and take additional precautionary measures with their batteries after the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery explosion haul. Though their latest release, Galaxy S8, and S8 Plus, registered record-breaking pre-order requests, the devices are also subject to a lot of scrutiny following the early fiasco.
