When Michael Kwan recently reviewed the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, he thankfully didn't experience one of its potential features: an exploding battery. Samsung has halted all sales of the new handset all over the globe and issued a recall over reports of the batteries exploding during charging. According to the company, 35 Galaxy Note 7 phones have been discovered with the issue. That's less than 0.1 percent of the phones sold, but the company issued the recall regardless.

Customers who purchased a Note 7 have two options: replace their phone with another Note 7 as early as next week, or exchange it for a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge. If choosing the second option, consumers will also get any accessories they may have had and they will be refunded the price difference between the devices. This can be accomplished by visiting the store where you purchased the phone or calling 1-800-SAMSUNG.

Samsung has been having a hell of a year, so this is a pretty bad way to end it, especially with Apple's iPhone announcement coming up next week. Hopefully, for Samsung's sake, they can get the Note 7 back on the market before they lose too much money.
