It seems as if the iPhone isn't the only product family dealing with a slowdown, however, as a number of people have reported Galaxy Note 8 battery problems.

Fortunately for Samsung, not all the Galaxy Note 8 smartphones are affected by the battery issue. Users have apparently been experiencing the inability to charge the device after the battery has fully drained out.

Samsung moderator with the handle "SamsungMel" on its US Community Forums explicitly acknowledged the issue and has written,"This particular problem with the Note 8 not turning on is definitely something that we want to get addressed immediately". The phone doesn't charge at all, leaving customers with no option but to contact the company.

The issue doesn't appear to be a new one as there are a few videos out there of users complaining that the phone didn't turn back on after it reached 0 percent and they tried to charge. Both variants of the newly approved handsets are believed to be of the unlocked variety, whereas carrier-specific versions are yet to receive approval from the FCC.

The Galaxy Note 7 recall and discontinuation reportedly cost the company billions of dollars. Still, it's nothing of the disaster the Note 7 was, nor did it follow in the footsteps of Google's terrible Pixel 2 launch.

According to a recent report it appears that owners of the handset on a number of U.S. carriers have had this issue. They even used different cables and chargers assuming that these things might have issue.

If you have a Note 8, be careful with completely draining the phone battery as you might encounter this problem, this is a big issue but at least the batteries are not exploding.
