Samsung wowed the world when they introduced the Note 8 recently but people tend to forget that the Note 7 was a spectacular phone as well. Apart from the obvious bursting feature of course. The Note 7 was one of the biggest disasters in consumer tech’s history and Samsung took measures to ensure it doesn’t happen again. The South Korean company employed a rigorous eight-point safety check for future smartphone due to the fiasco and since then the company launched two spectacular smartphones: The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8.
Since the launch of the Note 8, consumers have put the debacle behind them and it is clearly evident since the newly launched device is selling like hot cakes. In order to fully capitalise on the huge success, the company liked to remind consumers about the huge debacle with a very smart yet funny promotion method.

Samsung Spain handed out 200 Note 8 devices to passengers on board a flight between Madrid and A Coruña, Galicia. There was a messaged that came along with the smartphone which read “A year ago we asked you to turn it off, we welcome you today on board,” according to a simple Google Translate search.
The promotion clearly admits that the Note 7 was banned from flights due to the fact that its battery kept malfunctioning. What impresses us the most is that Samsung is not ashamed of hiding the same fact and wants to remind customers that they have a new and safer product that can be used in flights. Even though this might be a weird way to promote a new product, it is certainly gaining trust amongst consumers.
The video above was captured by Samsung and it shows that passengers were happy to get a free smartphone but were also annoyed about being woken up.
The Galaxy Note 8 has reviewed well across the globe and we feel it is one of the best Android smartphones you can buy today. You can read our review here to know more about the device.
