Samsung Galaxy Note 7

I don't own one but I can tell you that the airlines have become very picky about them and require complete power down.  Not sure if cruise ships will follow suit ...

If they have the self distructing batteries, then the cruise lines will ban them.

 

They would probably do like the airlines and require them to be off while on board.

Just saw on the news tonight,  even the replacement Galaxy 7's are catching fire.   Some cell companies are letting people trade them in on different phones.  One of my friends has one.  The original one he got had to be traded for a new Galaxy 7,  he says the new one gets warmer then the first one did.

I know I saw the warning on southwest's site, as well as they made an announcement on board when I flew at the end of September. Sad, because I has a galaxy S5.. Decent phone, not sure why the 7 is having so many issues. 

I still use a dumb phone perhaps the last person to still have one but it works for me.  When I do upgrade it won't be to a Galaxy Note 7 no matter how cheap the price is.

In their race to top Apple, Samsung seems to have really made some bad decisions regarding some of its Galaxy features.  I just pray that no one falls victim to exploding phones, notebooks, or laptops.

When technology attacks!

 

They can market it as a safety feature..... if you get lost camping your Galaxy 7 can start a camp fire for you.  I'm happy to stick with my I-Phone.

Not an explosion (headline is exaggerated), but this was after the phone was turned off.  It was a replacement phone.

 

 

There is now information in Carnival FAQs regarding Galaxy Note 7 restrictions onboard their ships.
