Who could forget the worst nightmare Samsung faced with its Galaxy Note 7 due to its exploding batteries? It appears that Note series of Samsung has been cursed by black magic. As of now, many Galaxy Note 8 users are reporting a strange issue relating to the device’s charging.
According to the Galaxy Note 8 users, their devices are unable to turn on or charge once the battery hits 0% by chance. The issue has been reported on Reddit and later on Piunikaweb, firstly covered it. Once the battery of the Note 8 drops down at 0%, the device refuses to turn on or charge. However, the issue is limited to certain units and it’s not widespread.
The Note8 is a curse on me. First one lost wireless charging, second one lost wireless charging and now it’s completely dead. Won’t power on or charge! Thanks Samsung and Verizon….

Some of the Note 8 users have tried different methods to charge the device i.e. different cables and charger, hence concluded that the phone is faulty. A Samsung’s representative from Samsung US forum said that we are aware of the problem and will address it soon. As he says,
“This particular problem with the Note 8 not turning on is definitely something that we want to get addressed immediately”
As of now, almost all Galaxy Note 8 phones from all the carriers including Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, and Sprint are facing the same problem. The issue is serious, but it’s not widespread, so it’s likely that Samsung will be resolving this problem immediately.
Almost a year ago, Samsung was left with no option else to recall Galaxy Note 7, after reports from many users that its battery explodes.
