Case Study – Product Design failure in SAMSUNG
Product - Galaxy Note 7
Year introduced: 2016
What it was: Tablet phone
Samsung, which had overtaken Apple in the smartphone market once, also had one of the larger and optional more recent product flops. The Note S7, a phablet that launched in August 2016, was initially well received. However, it had a serious flaw. A problem with the battery software resulted in the phones catching fire on several occasions, including once on a South West Airlines flight, which had to be evacuated. Soon, the Department of Transportation made it illegal to bring a Note 7 on a commercial flight. By October, after an extremely expensive recall, Samsung suspended worldwide production of the Note 7. The company lost what is estimated to be over $3 billion due to the error in product design, and Apple once again took the lead in the global smartphone market.
