"perhaps a few more reports of fires and Apple could be facing a similar fate that Samsung did with the Note7, requiring a worldwide recall."
Of course not. They would never admit such a serious problem or if they do, they'll just pretend it's not a big deal or even blame the user. It's APPLE. "You're charging it/using it wrong".
They could actually take advantage of this phenomena and make a "self detonating" feature in phone that can be activated remotely when they are stolen.
Cannot wait to see, an action video ( Probably GT6) where opponents throwing Note 7 and Iphone 7 at each other for ultimate destruction.
It's time to start buying batteries from SONY. They have the best camera sensors. Admire my Xperia phone. Works like a charm after two years. Thanks Sony for such beautiful piece of device.

Romie Lee, 21 Oct 2016You are so delusional! I can't take you seriously.Take me "seriously" or not iP7 caught fire anyway Hahahaha!!!!
I wouldn't worry too much, when you need to recall your phones twice in a month than you should be worried.
This is not the first case for iphone 7.
More to come?
They are pushing technology to the limit. Phones become power hungry yet battery gets thinner.

The modern technology is affordable with thermal sensors which turn off the chips when overheated and interrupt the drain from the battery or power supply to cool off. But Apple as well as Samsung take advantage from people who do not have an engineering background and save so one or two dollars per phone sold without such thermal sensors, putting at death risk their consumers and fans.
Oh so they put the competition to the next level. This 2 giants included the exploding battery to their respective spec sheets. Ahm maybe this will be the successor to the kill switch which introduced not long ago. A hand grenade hiding on a smartphone shell.
I found it very bizarre, no medias were not speaking of batteries exploding for Apple Iphone7, although several have had this problem in China.
I thought Apple company tried to safeguard its business, finally another media outside China talk about this problem.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2016Apple copying samsunh right there! No innovation from apple, only copy...May be another case over battery exploding copyrightso.
Gary5, 21 Oct 2016GSMA: Perhaps a few more reports of fires and Apple could be facing a similar fate that Samsun... moreit can still depend on the weather, as it's not to warm in Australia now until you go into the middle where all of the heat is
iPhone 7 is a hand grenade too now as well as the Note7.
Seems it's up to the Huawei Mate 9 to save the day xD
So the note7 and iPhone7 are the alternatives of the hand grenade...:D
