It's funny how quickly things move in the tech world. About a year ago, Samsung issued a formal recall for the Note 7 amid widespread reports that the device was prone to spontaneously catching fire and exploding. By early October, Samsung essentially conceded that the Note 7 had a faulty design and ceased production entirely. Without exaggeration, Samsung's Note 7 fiasco represented the worst PR nightmare the mobile market had ever seen. In turn, some naturally wondered if Samsung would be able to withstand an avalanche of negative press and actually convince users to buy Samsung devices in the future.
