Samsung pulls its hottest phone

TWO months after a recall of 2.5 million Galaxy Note7s smartphones because of faulty batteries and overheating, replacement phones given to customers are also apparently catching fire. The Korean tech giant has advised owners to power them down and stop using them. It has asked its global partners "to stop sales and exchanges of Galaxy Note7” during investigations. It said owners should seek a refund or exchange. The new fire concerns have prompted questions about whether the battery is the only problem as Samsung has claimed.
