this wont stop me, from buying, shits happen with any phone... s3 is still the best phone at the moment!!!!!!!!
Dominos, 21 Jun 2012Though charger was cheap , isn't s3 so smart to handle fluctuation in voltage ?.You know it could be a wiring problem like "short circuit." not the phone but probably the charger.
Since its an isolated case then what this article for?
Maybe he used an unoriginal car chargers, Most of car charger if not a good one can give extra voltage when you step on gasoline.
I have owned a gs3 for 2 weeks and not once has mine got hot. Either in calls charging or playing on it all day. Reckon this is fake. Only time will tell if others start popping.
hiccups, 21 Jun 2012The car charger was cheap. that's why it burnt. OR it photoshoped OR the owner was bored and b... moreNice attempt at denial.
This won't be the last phone that explodes. And anyone blaming the car charger is as dumb as a post when it comes to knowing how modern Samsung smartphones work.
As I have said time and again, you cannot really expect good quality made by Samsung, so I never ever use any Samsung products and I really go a true technology that is Sony products because Sony has that good reputation in terms of innovation and quality products even I pay more compare to cheaper products like Samsung. I'm glad I am using trusted brands only like Sony and Apple.
I consider it simply an isolated case.Accident should not be example.
Hey I just bought an s3 last week in india. Used to get very hot as well as suffered from rapid battery drain. Had to charge twice during the day despite barely using it. Sent to customer care where they also seem to acknowledge the issue. Currently it's under observation. Let's c. Hope it performs as advertised.
cheap charger....my samsung galaxy s3 nevergets hot and i spend maybe 2 hours on wi fi ..brilliant phone..
The car charger was cheap. that's why it burnt. OR it photoshoped OR the owner was bored and burt the edges with a lighter OR Apple paid someone to do this.
BlackShadow :), 21 Jun 2012geeeeek samsung they think that they are smart, but they where wrong .... hhhahhahahahahaahahyes they failed... still lg 4x hd is the best!
JackSkellington, 21 Jun 2012Samsung does not make all parts and you know very well it was not that Samsung parts that blew... moreIt exploded because of battery had a screw inside but there many instances of iPhone melting before (just refer to articles came up from 2009), not to mention what is root cause but its really interesting turn that these exploding things made by samsung parts and not mention heating issues rising up since galaxy s2 and also even on iPad 3.If u read my comment i said think logically , i didnt get into any facts or blamed , just thought of a theory which would be link up the cause of these melting/exploding issues.
Not the first one, but they've customized it and make it better and added some more effects.
hehe, 21 Jun 2012S-plosion. new feature :)Nops...Apple invented it first through iphone!
