it's a very good move by HTC. i like their donation for charity. well done HTC !
So one s4 owner burnt her phone due to replica battery managed to get not only a replacement of her phone but mattress and a pillow too and this poor Guy is ignored, although using original sammy accessories.
Lucky guy..!! After the feel of HTC quality handsets it's highly likely that he will ever buy Samsung again.
come on guys... if the story is true, HTC didnt do it for charity or something... its just PURE MARKETING... probably they might be the one who told the guy to give interview to reddit to tell all the stories so that they can get smemore customers...
A blessing in disguise. He went from an overrated, bug filled device to arguably the greatest smartphone out there.
Well done HTC :)

It must be the icons, the gold phone and the finger print scanner that sold you!! AHAHAHAH what a joke. A company found guilty of blatantly copying another brand - constantly releasing garbage that is a replica of other handsets and people out there call them innovative. And please.. don't talk about samsung inventing screen size. Thats bordering the dumbest rubbish I have ever heard.
Samfan, 28 Jul 2014Its not all about deeper blacks. The backlight of LCD and IPS weakens the original colours of ... moreI love OLED displays, but overall I don't like Samsung phones. I don't buy a phone just because of a good display. I consider the overall factors.
If you analyse the OLED Tv market, LG is the best. Actually, Samsung completely lost their OLED TV market share. Now LG is the only competitor in the OLED TV market. According to my opinion LG OLED TVs are better than the Samsung's OLED TVs. LG use four colour calibration (Red, Blue, Green and White) instead of Samsung's three colour calibration. LG's OLED panels look more natural than Samsung's OLED Panels. If LG starts to use OLED technology on their smartphones, they could be the best smartphone displays manufacturer.
I have an Asus 27 inch IPS monitor. The picture quality on it is outstanding. I can manipulate the colours on it. I can adjust the RBG color calibration and bring the colours look as an OLED display. The only matter is, we can't get the deep black as on an OLED panel.
people who want to buy samsung, will still buy samsung, and I dont think samsung care about 1-2 customer. I'll still not buying HTC after reading this story, tho I'm not gonna buy samsung or LG too. I'm korean hater, like always

This shows has social media can work for a company HTC and can really work against it Samsung.
Especially especially when people ignore the user guide
You really should be not be writing..anything
This seems to be it, break the phone through misuse get a new one free
re this article.
My point is this, there are NO phone user guide that advocates even encourages overnight charging!
Here phone melts because nowhere in user guide does it state charge over night in fact 'disconnect when fully charged' then wonders why Samsung are refusing to return his calls
re this comment which beggars belief, but I am sure that you are NOT providing any advice that is NOT in the user guide or pertaining to recent events
re Pillow/13 year old
Thier is a video clip posted on gsmarena!
Used a 'cheapo' battery user guide states don't sleep on it, fire, contacts Samsung (who imo not impressed and rejected claim based on facts)
So what next as not Samsung fault
Buy a replacement, no contact local media, that'll work
Htc are free to get publicity re the 13 year old /pillow NON STORY
Samsung have done more than enough in getting her new bedding, but I dare say will now give her a new phone.
When you read these stories you wonder why some of these owner have smartphones?
They either ignore instructions or do things not in the user guide that defy common sense
Hey I sleep with a landline under my pillow
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2014true taht you cant really compare both of the technology that way, they both have they advanta... moreDude IPS have rubbish contrast compares to AMOLED! LG G3 has Reds which look Pinkish and Pinks which looks Orangish! and Thier brightness is no where compared to AMOLED! IPS(LCD) at 100% brightness Blacks are jus faded out in fact all colors are except white! AMOLED is easily best display technology in the market!
This is very nice of HTC, Samsung probably thinks they sell to many phones to care about 1 customer. Keep up the good work Samsung, i cant wait for that unhappy customer to turn into 100.000, and maybe then you will start making real phones instead of these plastic jokes. And perhaps if a miracle happens you will care more about your customers. AGAIN, GOOD WORK HTC!
HTC One M8 is made up of aluminum which is only cause of Alzheimer's discovered so far so even if I get it for free I will dump!
