samsung-logoA few days ago we covered a story about the latest issues that affect Samsung’s flagship device, the Galaxy S4. It was about battery issues that people are having, especially cases of swollen battery.

Apparently Samsung was made aware of this reports and has issued an official statement as presented by Trusted Reviews:
