This is not the first time a Samsung phone and/or tablet has exhibited this issue: the batteries swell up after a year of use, and destroy the phone(s). Since purchasing this phone, I have been obsessive about keeping it off the charger, letting the battery die down to about 25%, charging it back up, etc., so that the excuse of "you left it on charge too long" could not be used.
Now I'm stuck with a very expensive I don't even know what to call it -- I don't want to even use it as a paperweight, since I don't know what this battery will do.
Does Samsung have ANY options to get this battery replaced for me, since it is obviously a design flaw?
I have noticed that in the last week my Note 8 is getting very hot during charging. I only charge over night. I also noticed that the back is slightly swollen, enough so that you can spin it on a flat surface. I know it's only a matter of time before it breaks the back. How sad because I don't want to buy another phone.
