Samsung Galaxy Note 7 – level 2

17-10-2016 07:00

Some of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 phones caught fire. People who had this problem got a new phone, but the replacements were faulty, too. Samsung  recalled 2.5 million phones and stopped the production completely.

The US Department of Transport banned these phones on flights to or from the United States. Passengers welcome the ban because they do not want to be on a plane that can catch on fire because of a phone.

Difficult words: replacement (a thing which takes the place of another), faulty (not working correctly), recall (ask people to give something back because of a problem).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
