Its better to change from plastic case to metal case for heat absorber.
It's good to know that, you use a replacement battery and then blame the manufacturer and get paid. It happens only in US and to my surprise I can read some comments where people are saying that its samsung's fault.I am sure if it happened to iPhone the title of this Article would be "A precious iPhone is destroyed by a stupid guy" remember AntennaGate in iphone 4 and people would have praised how good an apple iPhone is that it prevented the entire house getting burnt. Just because Samsung is an Asian company people do not like them. They forget most of the phones including iPhone are made in China which is an Asian country.
That battery is a counterfeit only if it had a logo identical or similar to Samsung. If it didn't have any logo like Samsung has then it's not considered counterfeit because it's not trying to immigrate the original product. It would just simply be an after market replacement. So charge your title, is legally incorrect.
So you put your phone under your pillow, sleep on top of it probably bending the charging port, and it is Samsung's fault? Any phone will overheat eventually given those circumstances. People have no common sense anymore. Next lets cram it in our back pocket then hop down on a chair and complain if the screen cracks.
Yeah, go blame it on the company because it uses flimsy plastic. Apple does no better as i got zapped while browsing the phone while it charges. Although not a deadly shock, it is still a discomfort for the customer. The only solution the apple center i went gave me is to put a rubber sleeve on the phone. No phone brand is immune to defects or malfunction.
Why would her parents get her an S4 anyway, and as a girl who probably uses a hair dryer and possibly hair straighters should no better. Any device that generates heat should be kept in a well ventilated area. Any girl knows that any appliance they use that gets hot should be turned of when not in use or to keep an eye on it.
My samsung tab3 usb port got burnt when i gone in service centre they said warranty over no repair and replace in dombivli india
If you put smartphone or notebook under a pillow it's your faulty and problem. Pillow is working as heat insulator. It will overheat device and making it life time shorter.. with bad luck.. could burn. And it doesent matter which manufacture was battery and device. Simple logic to understand what will happen if you cover with something a device which is generating heat.
xxZer0, 27 Jul 2014Samsung's poor build materials lol.Did you not read the article? Clearly says it was a counterfeit battery.
Why was it under a pillow? Pressure on the battery could cause it to explode and even if it wasnt that it could have overheated
Yeah... buy cheap spare part that burns down house and blame Samsung(not that i'm a fan). However, kudos for them for replacing the house, bed, child, phone and battery!
If this would of happened in any other country, nothing would of been replaced!
Want to replace your old samsung battery? Burn the phone. You'll get free replacement.
Samsucks, 27 Jul 2014Yeah Samsung, it's always a counterfeit battery :rooleyes:. GS4 is known to have battery issue... moreLeaving a smartphone under the pillow while 3G/WiFi/LTE is active generates heat plus being smothered by the pillow increases the heat which can cause serious reactions in the battery's chemicals...
wow... did you even graduate from highschool? oh wait, let alone even elementary??
DannyC1982, 27 Jul 2014It's a Samsung! poor quality Seriously... Apple Iphone explosion?...
