Some owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 are reporting that their handset is dying once it reaches a 0 percent charge and won’t come back to life – not ideal if you’re Samsung and you had to recall the Note 8’s predecessor last year for an overheating problem.
For the time being the issue doesn’t seem to be too widespread, and only appears to be affecting users in the US for the most part, but SamMobile has pulled together numerous forum posts and complaints that suggest this is more than just one or two isolated incidents we’re dealing with.
Of course Samsung will swiftly replace your faulty Note 8 if it’s still under warranty, but considering the company was at great pains to emphasize just how much testing the Note 8 battery went through, this is a blip that it could do without.
From hero to zero
Or at least Samsung will be hoping it’s a blip – right now the manufacturer hasn’t said whether or not this is a recognized fault, or whether the problem lies with the hardware or the software of the Note 8. If it’s the latter, then a fix could be rolled out via a software update.
