Over in South Korea, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is now available for purchase. If you were a bit apprehensive on buying the phone, we guess we can totally understand why. After all the phones exploded not just once, but there have been reports that even the replacement units were experiencing issues.
If anything we guess this should shake your confidence in Samsung. However it seems that Samsung’s reputation is solid enough to withstand a beating. According to reports out of Korea (via SamMobile), it would seem that Samsung has actually managed to sell a whopping 30,000 Galaxy Note 7 handsets within the first 2 days of it going back on sale!
If this were a regular Galaxy Note 7 launch, we guess those numbers aren’t surprising, so what’s really surprising is the fact that despite the issues of the phone, plenty of customers still seem to be pretty happy with Samsung and would not mind purchasing from the company again, thus demonstrating some pretty steadfast brand loyalty.
It is probably still too early to tell how much the recalls and the bad press will do to Samsung’s overall sales of the Note 7, and how many they could have sold had nothing gone wrong, but we guess we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime are you guys planning on purchasing the Note 7 after this?
