If you have purchased a Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8 plus in the Microsoft store, you may have been worried about reports that the battery has some issues when deep discharged. While Samsung’s issues with battery is not new, these reports won’t blow your device (we aren’t completely sure though).
Since last week, the reports went from rare to frequent which definitely drew the attention of the Korean giant. The reports pointed out to an issue where the device after the battery had once completely discharged did not turn on again. While deep discharge does sometimes create problems since batteries take longer to recover but they do recover eventually. Unfortunately for Samsung, these reports didn’t stop with Note 8. Users also shared a similar experience with S8 Plus which just make matters worst.
Samsung isn’t silent on the issue though. The company recently shared details with PC World saying:
