Samsung Galaxy Note 7 – level 3

17-10-2016 07:00

Some of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 phones caught fire, and the US Department of Transport banned the phone on flights to or from the United States. Passengers welcome the ban, saying that they do not want to be on a flight that has the risk of catching on fire due to a phone.

Samsung recalled 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7s in September – but the replacements of the faulty phones still encountered problems, and the company ceased production of the phone completely last week after they failed to find the source of the fault.

Difficult words: due to (because of), recall (ask people to give something back because of a fault), encounter (unexpectedly experience), cease (bring to an end).
