When a company launches a new product on the market, there is always a certain anticipation from consumers. Is the equipment good? Or bad? And companies also suffer a little, because even though they develop their products to try to appeal to as many consumers as possible, this is not always the case.
Over the years, a number of companies, including some well-known companies, have tried to market some products that, for one reason or another, have either failed to appeal to sales or led to rapid discontent.
In this article we will let you know 2 products that, over the years, had a high expectation before the launch, but failed to appeal to consumers in general.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is dead
We started this list with a well-known and still relatively recent: the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 which was launched in August 2016.
Although it received good feedback on its quality camera, S-Pen and unique features, the Galaxy Note 7 was a complete fiasco when it began to see other functionality unknown at the time: explosions.
Several users reported that their Galaxy Note 7 were exploding out of nowhere, leading to even more serious incidents such as minor fires and burns. It quickly came to the conclusion that the problem would stem from the battery, prompting Samsung to start collecting 2.5 million units worldwide.
On October 10, 2016, the company officially canceled the sale of the model and announced that it would be discontinued the next day.
Google Glass Suspended
Google Glass certainly was, at the time of launch, far ahead of its time. This allowed you to record videos and take pictures, get information and even watch videos from a kind of glasses.
This was even welcomed by enthusiasts, but a large majority of the population did not intend to see their privacy potentially invaded with these equipment, causing several locations – including bars, restaurants and shopping centers – to begin banning the equipment from their premises.
In addition, the limited number of units available for sale and the high price of $1,500, coupled with a battery of poor autonomy and a confusing interface, led to the equipment being discontinued a few months after the official launch.
