Samsung’s fire-prone Galaxy Note 7 smartphones — and its stumbling response to the problem — has left consumers from Shanghai to New York reconsidering how they feel about the South Korean tech giant and its products.Samsung Electronics said this week that it would stop making the Note 7 for good after first recalling some devices and then recalling their replacements too Now like the makers of Tylenol Ford Pintos and other products that faced crises in the past it must try to restore its relationship with customers as it repairs damage to its brand Samsung shares plunged as much as 8 percent in Seoul their biggest one-day drop since the 2008 financial crisis after the company apologized for halting sales of the Note 7 “I’m in a state of ‘I don’t know’” said Pamela Gill a 51-year-old who works at Pratt Institute a college in New York City and likes her replacement Note 7 “You’re thinking ‘Do I have to turn it in Is it going to blow up’” she said Abrief history of fire Samsung South Korea’s biggest company by far announced a global recall of the devices last month It said a subtle manufacturing error in the batteries made the phones prone to catch fire It offered to replace the devices But South Korea’s safety agency says a new still unidentified problem with the replacement devices makes them also likely to overheat Some consumers blame Samsung for not dealing decisively with the issue Hahm Young-kyu a 43-year-old South Korean office worker in Seoul whose wife is still using the Note 7 exclaims in frustration that the manufacturer tried to “cover up” the Note 7’s failings Samsung’s initial recall had a rocky start After the first reports of overheating devices it offered replacements but not refunds It waited a week before advising consumers to stop using the affected devices And critics complained that some retailers didn’t have up-to-date information until Samsung made a coordinated announcement with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission Read:Samsung Galaxy Note7 is dead; company permanently ends production “Ultimately they did the right thing which was to announce a full recall” said Jan Dawson a tech industry analyst with Jackdaw Research But when the replacement devices ran into trouble too he added: “That all goes out the window Samsung’s claims about fixing the problem are no longer reliable “Now they’ve got to demonstrate why potential buyers shouldn’t worry about future Samsung devices” Dawson said As one of the world’s largest tech conglomerates Samsung can afford to discontinue the Note 7 which was not its biggest-selling phone While the cost of recalling devices and halting production will be enormous it makes far more than that every quarter on sales of components for smartphones and computers But analysts say the new unexplained Note 7 problems will still inevitably hurt On Wednesday the company slashed its forecast for third-quarter profit to 52 trillion won ($46 billion) down from the 78 trillion won estimate it released Friday If Samsung’s full financial results due later this month are in line with that forecast Samsung will log its lowest quarterly profit in two years Mystery Defects “A company’s brand is their promise to consumers” said John Jacobs an expert on reputation and crisis communications at Georgetown University “If you break that promise you lose the customers you lose their loyalty” Initially the Note 7 got glowing reviews for its size features and big battery capacity Now the company is struggling to figure out what exactly is wrong Read:Samsung killing off the Galaxy Note 7 portends an Android turf war “They have to comprehensively check everything from the very basics outside the battery and inside the phone” said Park Chul Wan a former director of the next generation battery research center at the state-owned Korea Electronics Technology Institute Park has long argued that Note 7’s problems appeared to be more than a simple battery defect “This is a truly difficult problem It was Samsung’s mistake to have underestimated it” he said South Korean safety regulators says they are examining components other than the batteries to try to puzzle out why even the replacement phones Samsung made using different batteries are so fire prone “The improved product does not have the same defect That’s why we think there is a new defect” said Oh Yu-cheon a senior official at the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards Breathing Room Samsung needs to win back consumers’ trust by the time it launches its next high-end phone the Galaxy S8 likely early next year Dawson said “They have that time to come up with a convincing story and a set of actions that will reassure customers that when they buy an S8 it’s going to be safe” Kim Young Woo a tech analyst at SK Securities believes Samsung could accelerate the launch of the S8 to make up for abandoning the Note 7 but it cannot afford to start from scratch and it has to find the cause of the overheating Read:Samsung sends fire-proof boxes for Galaxy Note 7 returns The Note 7 has cutting-edge features like an electronic stylus and an iris-scanning security feature seemingly suited for a James Bond movie “Samsung’s best latest technologies are all in the Note 7” Park said “If it releases the next phone it has to use the technologies in the Note 7” The company is the most popular maker of Android phones and the world’s leading smartphone maker selling over 77 million phones in the second quarter of 2016 But in the prized US market it lags behind Apple whose iPhone models are more popular according to International Data Corp Can Samsung come back While the company has suffered a “big setback” IDC analyst Ryan Reith said “my guess is it won’t do a lot of damage” to its overall share of the market But he warned Samsung’s profits may suffer because it will need to offer substantial discounts and other promotions to boost sales of the S7 and other models Jacobs the Georgetown reputation expert says Samsung will need to do more than that He said Samsung made the right decision to cancel the Note 7 “for the greater good of the Samsung brand” But he believes Samsung should emphasize quality and rigorous testing when it promotes future models “They want to be known two years from now as a company that can be trusted” he said When potential customers contemplate future Samsung products he said “you don’t want them having that worry in the back of their mind” For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Sohail Hashmi |

Related News Till the early years of the 20th century Connaught Place (or where it stands) was one large patch of wilderness Or rather a patchwork of villages surrounded by Delhi’s native trees — babool ronjh ker sangri hingot meswak khajoor dhaak palaash peepal banyan gular and amaltas Only on Tuesdays would residents of the royal city Shahjahanabad venture out this far to visit the Hanuman temple Other than devotees hunters came this way seeking partridges and quail in the forested patches which according to some accounts also had jackals and wild boar In 1912 a process of acquisition of several villages including Jaisinghpura and Raja ka Bazar began — all in the service of the construction of a new imperial capital The rulers of Jaipur who owned the land declared they were willing to part with their properties but it took more than a decade (1925) for the paperwork to be wound up The largest plot of land was Jaisinghpura so called because the land was given as a grant to Sawai Jaisingh (1688-1743) by Mohammad Shah (ruled 1702-1748) Sawai Jai Singh built Jantar Mantar and the Hanuman Temple on this land though popular legend places the construction in the time of the Pandavas with Raja Jai Singh (1611-1667) and Sawai Jai Singh being credited only for carrying out repairs The peasants and retainers who had settled on these properties were relocated in Karol Bagh and Pahar Ganj Jantar Mantar was in utter ruins by mid-1800s or perhaps even earlier There is a striking Company period painting of the ruins It shows the structure in the paling light of a setting sun The photograph was taken perhaps in 1873 by Charles Shepherd of the famous ‘Bourne and Shepherd’ duo The area around the Raisina Hill was finalised for locating the Viceregal Lodge the Secretariat and the Council House The foundation stone of the Council House now known as Parliament House was laid in 1921 by Prince Arthur the first Duke of Connaught The area to the northeast of this central hub consisting of land belonging to Jaisinghpura and some other villages was chosen for a high-end market and residential complex WH Nichols the chief architect of the government of India was chosen to design and oversee the construction Delays in acquiring the land and constantly changing briefs like a proposal to locate the railway station in the middle of the structure dogged the project The Connaught Place of the 1950s and 1960s and even the 1970s despite its aura of a fashionable and expensive market catered to Delhi’s middle class and its young (Source: Express Archives) By 1917 Nichols decided to go back home and Robert Tor Russel the chief architect of CPWD was now given the responsibility of both design and construction A semicircular three-storied structure called the Royal Crescent in the city of Bath was the inspiration for the market just as the India Gate was inspired by the Arc de Triomphe at Champs Elysees; and the North and South Block buildings were inspired by buildings that Herbert Baker had already made in South Africa Construction of the market complex began in 1929 and was completed in 1933 two years after the formal inauguration of New Delhi The two-story Georgian style building was conceived in the shape of two concentric circles named Connaught Place and Connaught Circus to memorialise the Duke of Connaught who happened to be the third son of Queen Victoria and the uncle of the then reigning Monarch King George VI The structure was a few years ago renamed Indira Chowk and Rajeev Chowk Only the Metro has adapted the new nomenclature with the New Delhi Traders’ Association actually passing a resolution to oppose the renaming and refusing to carry out the change in their stationery and signboards The Connaught Place of the 1950s and 1960s and even the 1970s despite its aura of a fashionable and expensive market catered to Delhi’s middle class and its young The New Delhi Stationery Mart opposite the Plaza was where your teachers sent you to get your dissertations and theses bound The pavement outside United Coffee House was one of the best places to buy second-hand books cheap Bibliophiles also flocked to the corner outside Regal Cinema and the Janpath pavement outside the Indian Oil building where the affable and excessively polite Mirza Saheb from Hyderabad opened his small stall of second-hand magazines and books that has grown into the famous Midland Books The Indian Oil building was also known for De Paul’s Cold Coffee and Hot Dogs Many romances began here and many lovers’ tiffs dissolved in its bittersweet and creamy cold coffee Before the emergence of the National School of Drama or the Mandi House it was also a place of choice for writers and artists actors and cartoonists actors and lawyers — from MF Husain to J Swaminathan Mulk Raj Anand to Nyaz Haider Some of the first businesses that moved from Kashmiri Gate to Connaught Place included ED Galgotia and Sons Booksellers Snowhite Dry Cleaners and Keventers The latter two continue to operate from Connaught Place It is said that the famous Spencer’s Pastries of Kashmiri Gate moved to CP and became Wenger’s Confectioners Wenger’s prominently displayed a board declaring boldly “Bread not sold here” This prompted a local wag to spin a yarn that the owners were fugitives from the French Revolution and were descendants of Marie Antoinette of France The Indian-owned “Nirula’s Corner House” opened its doors in 1942 as a bar and restaurant serving continental and Indian food Other well-known restaurants like United Coffee House Kwality and Gaylord came up after 1947 The Milk Bar opposite the Scindia House which was to become Ambar restaurant later was popular with the young because it was one of the first non-expensive restaurants to have a jukebox The first India Coffee House was set up at Connaught Place This was perhaps the first successful co-operative venture in the country that came into being through the coming together of the Price Rise Resistance movement (PRRM) started by Dr Ram Manohar Lohia and the Coffee Workers Co-Operative initiated by AK Gopalan the leader of the Communist Party in the Lok Sabha With the declaration of the Emergency the Coffee House with its exchange of suppressed news and exchange of information became such a big threat to the political establishment that Sanjay Gandhi had the place razed to the ground in the dead of the night The Coffee House was born again on the terrace of the newly built Mohan Singh Place after Emergency And 40 years later it is once again a hub of creative activity packed with students reading scripts debating arguing and rehearsing their new plays This is just a glimpse of the changes that Connaught Place has seen in 84 years There is much more that has remained unsaid about what happened in 1947 and later in 1967 when gaurakshaks ran amok and there was loot and arson on Parliament Street and Connaught Place Or what happened in 1984 when every shop owned by a Sikh was looted and burnt There is much that has to be said about issues that deal with the loss of family-owned businesses and the high-octane presence of expensive chains that have changed the face and spirit of this iconic market There is also the tale of shoddy and ill-conceived restoration but that is another story altogether Hashmi is a Delhi-based historian For
