Samsung is still trying to get people to return the Galaxy Note 7 handset as part of their global recall and we heard earlier that around 80 percent of the device had been returned.
The company will switch off cellular on the handset in the US and Canada this week and it is also going to limit the battery percentage in the UK to just 30%.
Samsung is releasing a software update in the UK that will reduce the amount that the battery can be charged to 30%, the company is hoping that this will get more people to return the device.
As part of our absolute focus on customer safety, from 15th December, all Galaxy Note 7 devices will receive a new battery software update that will limit the maximum charging capacity to 30 percent. This software update is designed to further minimise customer risk and reinforce to customers to replace their device through the Galaxy Note 7 Replacement Programme as soon as possible.
If you still have a Galaxy Note 7 smartphone then it may be a good idea to return the device for either an S7 or S7 Edge or for a refund.
