Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Banned On Planes

The Department of Transportation did not mince any words: As of Saturday, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was officially “considered a forbidden hazardous material under the Federal Hazardous Material Regulations.” That means the smartphone will join the same category as flammable aerosols, fireworks, lighter fluid and light-anywhere matches: not allowed aboard a plane, whether it’s in your pocket, a carry-on bag or a checked suitcase.
