im 120% sure he used some 5$ unworthy unoriginal battery on that 3+ yrs flagship
Obviously fake battery knock off! The phone owner should pay for the damage...
A discontinued phone and now you blame the company for a 4 year old phone! Oh please
first of all, yeah I'm using a Samsung j7 2015. to my observation every month SAMSUNG is releasing new brand of mobile or what EDITION is that. but Samsung you should be careful in releasing new mobile for your customers. make sure that it will not blow up or start a fire.

The solution to battery problems is to have sensor that recognize faulty batteries like flactuations in voltage, current etc. Even if it means that u buy original battery. Place dedicated batterychip for samsung batteries only. Not properly build well it wont start. Problem solved.
Any phone that brings Samsung brand is prohibited from airplane.

If that i... morePretty narrow minded are we, there's no information yet on whether that was a Samsung battery or a third party battery, I mean it's a 3/4 year old phone so chances are the person will ave replaced the battery and it is most probably a 3rd party battery. And yes you guessed it that is the whole point of sealing off a phone's battery is to make it more disposable, it's how the industry works and many companies are starting to do this.
christy ray, 24 Sep 2016I didn't hear any HTC,LG or SONY mobiles catches fire via battery.....Its not a coincidence that this 4 year old phone has only had this happen after the note 7 recall. The recall gave more attention to these sorts of issues, and also led to fraudsters, otherwise you would've heard about this happening a couple years ago at the very least.
Plus Samsung makes much more phones than Sony or HTC, so in terms of absolute numbers they should have more issues.

my xiaoXX powerbank also explode... why i didnt put it on news. Haiz!!!
Now im pissed!
The reasoning "all phones can catch fire"
For so called OEMs dont let me remind me what happened with mercedes when those same cars caught fire like 40 years ago so this so called it could explode, kill childrens, make you blind and other bs explanations are unacceptable. Im just waiting for planecrash caused by this faulty phones. Fix them!!!
