Do Samsung phones blow up

QUESTION NO.2: Do Samsung phones blow up?

The question does Samsung phones blow up came as a result of the ugly experience Samsung user experience in 2016 of continuous reports of Samsung phone blowing up when you try to charge. 
This explosion was traced down to Factory problem for Samsung Galaxy Note S7. 

Reports according to wired have it that" Samsung disclosed its lengthy findings as to what caused the device's batteries to overheat and catch fire. Based on the company's own investigation and independent scientific analysis of the issues by three consulting bodies, the overheating was caused by separate problems in batteries sourced from two different suppliers."

To the extent cell phone battery saga, this one was stuffed with turns, turns, and after that a ton of hush. In September, weeks after the Note 7 launch, Samsung issued an underlying review of 2.5 million gadgets after a few telephones experienced overheating issues. When the US Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a formal nationwide recall two weeks after the fact, about 100 risky battery occurrences had been accounted for in the United States.

In conclusion, Samsung Phone does not blow up again as the company has completely taken care of the situation and the first user of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has returned the faulty phone to the company and it was replaced with a new one with a nonexplosive seal on its battery.

Question No.4: Do Samsung Phones Have Read Receipts?

Without a critical look at these question, you may start thing if people are going crazy or they just want to ask questions, At first look, you think what the question means is, if Samsung phones come with a retail receipts, but it's not, it actually means something that will notify users that a text message has been read by the recipient.  

Unfortunately, although you see it baked into iPhones and iPads and Macs (one of the things I DO like about iDevices, actually), iMessage is NOT a standard messaging protocol. It's Apple's proprietary tech very much like BBM back in the day with BlackBerries before they made it available to other platforms. iMessage is, in fact, an extra app for iDevices. The only problem is, it's only available for Apple products, so it can't be used on other platforms. SMS does not support real time notifications (there are read receipts, but those are also optional and not in real time).

That being said, to achieve what you want you to need the other party to install a 3rd party app, period. Read Receipts and Typing notifications are all offered by Facebook's Messenger, BlackBerry Messenger, Whatsapp, among others. Most, just like iMessage, give you the option NOT to send the read receipts (yes, your iFriend can choose to show whether the message has been read or not).

The simple answer is NO, Samsung does not come have read receipts. In Samsung Galaxy S6 you can turn on SMS Delivery notification on. see how to here.

There are various types of sim cards you can come across, all these sim cards are provided by the carrier or network provided you wish to use. they come in the form of Micro Sim, Macro sim, and normal standard Sim card.

Siri is a virtual assistant or secretary found only on Apple iPhones, it assists you to operate your phone when you are feeling too lazy to punch your phone, you can just speak to Siri and your phone will carry out the instruction and operate your phone for you. Siri is a smart inbuilt apple software which takes away your boredom and engages the iPhone user in a conversation.

As Samsung has fallen behind its competitors in the race for voice as the next platform, it has worked quickly to try and catch up. Foxnew reported that Samsung is positioning Bixby different than Apple's Siri, Google Assistant or Amazon's Alexa in that it can learn and adapt to the needs of its users.
In conclusion, Samsung does not have Siri but the new Samsung Galaxy S8 come with a virtual assistant that works just like iPhone Siri called Bixby. if you don't have Samsung Galaxy S8, don't worry, you can download this Siri alternative for Android HERE.
