Akinaro, 26 Sep 2016Im not big fan of Samsung but that "catching fire" of Samsung phones is so shady that its just... morehaha, another fanboy comment.
The reports on Samsung is not the hottest phone is because they have yet to update their reports.
You can do a Google search and you are amazed that Samsung uses cheap hardware specs and raw materials compare to HTC or LG or Sony.
Im not big fan of Samsung but that "catching fire" of Samsung phones is so shady that its just hilarious.
All media scream that samsung phones blowup... but almost none of those media update their news, that half of Note7 burns where scam and was not made by battery but stupld users that leave their phones on sun/humid environment or they use cheap/damaged chargers, like that owner of that Jeep. Not to metion that most users bought those big phones... but they put them in back pocket... and often seat on them. its not small phone, and just because its made of metal it doesnt mean you can treat it like damn brick that you can throw around.
But guess what? if you just spend 2min searching about phones catching fire, you find out that Samsung is not even in the middle of ranking of "hottest" phones.
So when I hear some kid that whine that "Im not gonna buy Samsung phones". I just want to cry from laughing. Samsung have about hundreds of devices available right now... but you read one news about one-two models... and you declare that ALL samsung product are bad...
Damn nice reasoning.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2016Right... That is exactly how a thief & fraud will think!Yep , not a surprise coming from the American market (oldest known of them actually)
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2016Sure. And after Samsung checks the phone and finds out that the fire was started from outside,... moreActually any battery can be over charged and caused to seriously get hot if the right charger and high resistance dock was applied to the electric circuit as long as it's not a fail safe current
Well, fake news are everywhere, bigger names are easier to destroy, remember the bendgate fiasco,that was Apple's turmoil, but it seems Samsung is experiencing worse. I really wonder, does this exploding handsets only affects the newer divices, since my old S7 is extremely reliable. If its an older handsets like before s6, i dont buy them at all, fake news or user fault..
I have never taken to Samsung products I think they just look so ugly.
Jimson, 26 Sep 2016Well technically this is just to ruin Samsung's name, I have a Samsung S5 Neo and yes it does ... moreI have zero sympathy to Samsung.
All their devices heated just after 10 mins of gaming.
I think Samsung has very very bad hardware. Even their hardware specs losses to HTC.
I have HTC M9 and LG G5 and only after 40 mins of gaming, then only it heated up. HTC and LG has very good software optimization to control overheating compare to the crappy Touchwiz.
Samsung should just stop all flagships from selling or sell its production entirely to HTC or LG.
My Xperia Z3+ processor heats upto 80 Celcius but never caches fire (although I love to see fire to turn it back to Sony). So heating of phones is not a problem at all since processors are equipped with sensors to slow down to cool off........ Its the fault of Samsung batteries which are causing fire.
I'm not so convinced with this none sense! First off she said she bought her S7 since released it then suddenly its just burn for no reason then she make another statement from another press wtf! I'm a Filipino but I'm not buying with her lies! This may not happen in first place if the Note7 fiasco did not happen, something is fishy here, The only unit that has problem is Note7 and nothing more!
When heat reaches some threshold, phone should switch off automatically . Usually when playing heavy graphics games phones will heat more compared to normal usage.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2016Li-ion batteries have always been randomly catching fire, but it happens very rarely. I'm gues... morei always thought Li-ion batteries are pretty stable than Li-pol ones. i got a lenovo device with Li-pol battery its very slim and battery backup is very good.
Hi-tech, 26 Sep 2016the problem with kids are they don't have idea of device getting heated. all they do is watch ... moreWell technically this is just to ruin Samsung's name, I have a Samsung S5 Neo and yes it does it up and its because I do play games that are quite heavy with graphics. However in this case why just now? S7 has been released quite some time ago, and why just now when there's an issue regarding the Note 7. ---.---
Jimson, 26 Sep 2016I'm not convinced about the issue of this woman, I live in the Philippines and my Manager uses... moreNot all S7 Edges are bugged by this issue. Were you like, seriously expecting every S7 Edge to catch fire and explode?! Those ones must have a defective battery from the factory.
Jimson, 26 Sep 2016I'm not convinced about the issue of this woman, I live in the Philippines and my Manager uses... morethe problem with kids are they don't have idea of device getting heated. all they do is watch movies, play games continuously. they even play while its being charged! but i dont get it why only samsung devices?
This like those times back in 2007 when Nokia BL5C battery bulging and exploding
i hate apple and samsung but thats a fake to ruin samsung name thats all...no matter what brand is..always buy value for money
Its fack news me and my friends using S7 edge in india its world best phone compare then other.
Galaxy Y catches fire. Lawsuit issued for 12 million $
I'm not convinced about the issue of this woman, I live in the Philippines and my Manager uses a S7 Edge and even my friend, but they don't have any issue with the phone, and here in out country there's a lot of attention seeking people and fraudster who would actually do something like that for money. -.-
