It is being reported that Samsung has decided to halt production on the Galaxy Note 7 after continuous complaints from users about the phone exploding.

After major phone carriers like Verizon and AT & T in the US, halted sales of the defective devices, the company issued a statement saying they will also “ask all carrier and retail partners globally to stop sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note7”, while they investigate what is causing the phones to catch fire.
They also added,
Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note 7 or replacement Galaxy Note 7 device should power down and stop using the device.
Airlines have also instructed Galaxy Note7 users not to stow their phones in checked baggage when they travel and to keep them off and off charge during a flight.
They have also instructed users of the Note 7 to stop using them.
It is not known yet of Nigerian telecoms companies have also halted sales of the Galaxy Note 7.
