The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco is no doubt the most controversial issue that the South Korean-based manufacturer has encountered thus far. Because of this, a lot of branches from the tech giant and other partner retailers are now offering new ways to entice everyone who still have the handset to return it as part of the company's recall initiative.

According to Sam Mobile, Samsung France has just recently mailed its customers and apologized for the issue with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 handset. As part of compensation for the fiasco, the company's France branch has also given fans a free 128 GB Micro SD card with a 100 Euro discount if they ever decide to exchange the Note 7 for a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge.

The offer doesn't end there, though. The source continued that fans will get the chance to enter an SMS competition, and 1,000 lucky winners will receive admission to the Samsung Life Changer Park — the tech giant's Virtual Reality (VR) park — located in Paris, France.

Samsung will text customers and the first 1,000 users to reply to the company will become eligible for admission.

Meanwhile, for those who are worried that the Samsung Galaxy S7 is also affected by the battery issue of the Note 7, Samsung has reassured everyone that its current-generation Galaxy S series handset — the S7 and S7 Edge — are safe and that they shouldn't worry about its battery or any overheating issues.

"Samsung stands behind the quality and safety of the Galaxy S7 family. There have been no confirmed cases of internal battery failures with these devices among the more than 10 million devices being used by consumers in the United States; however, we have confirmed a number of instances caused by severe external damage. Until Samsung is able to obtain and examine any device, it is impossible to determine the true cause of any incident," read the tech giant's announcement post.

No official word yet has come from Samsung regarding their findings with the battery issues of the Galaxy Note 7. More news about the matter should emerge in the coming weeks or months.
