5 Best Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Alternatives


You know what happened to Samsung Galaxy Note 7, don’t you?

Right from the first teaser, I have been following the South Korean tech stalwart Samsung. But that happened out of the blue!

Samsung’s latest flagship killer exploded. First time I heard it, I thought it as an isolated incident. Then came many stories of people, whose body parts were burnt from the fire of Note 7.


Finally, Samsung admitted that it is all their part and the issue is in battery. They recalled tons of devices and advised users not to use one without replacement.

I thought everything would come to normal after the replacement. But even the replaced units burnt.

As the Note 7 dreams of tech freaks ended, I am here to give you a few Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Alternatives.
