[deleted post]Cos it explode then went up in flame. Just an update lol
winoles, 21 Oct 2016this sort of things happen all the time with many kinds of devices, but beeing so exptected as... moreYet everyone lost their mind when the first cases of note 7s catching fire came out. Now it's the user's fault that an iphone met the same fate.
Apple copying samsunh right there! No innovation from apple, only copy...
this sort of things happen all the time with many kinds of devices, but beeing so exptected as this two have been, anything going on gets increasingly magnified, no body gives a damn if 200 crappy white branded phones burn, or 200 laptop batteries begin to swell, there are several ongoing recalls in the US, and nobody is running screaming in utterly dispar
If you will try to leave the phone in the car NOT covered with clothes, your window will explode and phone will dissapear... and this probability is 1000 times higher than hidden phone going up in flames :)
I blame some of this on manufacturers/consumers obsession with making phones thinner, packing so many heat producing components in close proximity instead of having a decent size so the phone has some kind of ventilation.
I also wonder how many of these people are using ghetto 3rd party chargers or cords with frayed wires. I know several people who fit into both of those categories.
GSMA: 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.
Really GSMA? Australia is a hot country. Plus, being tech blogger you know what happens when you wrap your smartphone in your clothes and leave it for hours in a closed car under the scorching sun of Australia.
Now, is still Apple's fault?
This Incident shows Apple can Copy Anything.
iPhone 7 copies Note 7...LoL
If A Note 7 expkodes, it's Samsung fault. If iShit explodes, it's user problem. Way to go Apple.
Tann Hauser, 21 Oct 2016Do not generalise.
Samsung and Apple users only, for now, should be on standby.
I womder, D... moreI think that could be the case. Samsung is one of the major components partner to APPLE. Touchscreen, storage chips and maybe batteries too are by Samsung. A10 chips are manufactured by Samsung foundaries based on custom design by APPLE.
I have said this before, Samsung took the hit of Note7, coz it knows if it's battery is at fault, they would loose all the current & potential customers of battery. Hence,they decided to recall the device. The loss is not big as compared to loss of customer ( whom they supply batteries)
This is because of unhealthy competition among different companies. To make slim and light weight forcing to make too thin and weak circuits causing explosion.
This was planned - ANY phone left under a pile of clothes even under a pillow is bound to ignite. This was totally fake!!
Both Apple and Samsung are racing against each other to bring out new products. I wonder if the QA has been compromised as a result. I think it is safer these days for consumer to wait awhile before jump in to buy a new smartphone. I bought my Lumia 950XL almost a year after it was released. No major issues being reported so far. And I bought it at a discounted price. So that gave me peace of mine and saved me some money.

I womder, D... moreI generalize simply because mobile phones are very sophisticated with all sorts of hardware stacked in it. So better be careful I dont know if Apple uses Samsung's "ow quality battery maybe they use their own low quality battery. In either case its hasnt been determined if the battery is the issue. Could be an internal component maybe that comes from a common supplier.
