Did Samsung make a safer battery?

The specter of the Note 7’s exploding battery hovers over the S8. The truth is, we can’t be 100 percent sure that Samsung made a safer battery until the final units are incident-free. But what we do know is that Samsung has instituted an eight-point battery test that it used on the S8 and S8 Plus, and on all phones going forward. My colleague Shara Tibken toured a korean battery facility to see how it’s done.

In addition, Samsung also claims that the S8 battery is about long-term performance rather than a short-term benchmarking burst. It’s expected to hold a longer charge after 6 months, a year and two years compared to the S7.
