Wow, I have to ruin my phone as well so I can demand a free replacement. And if that fails I can hope for some PR-hungry competitor to help me out.
From the pictures and description it's obvious that the phone was damaged because of psychical stress upon the charging port, which lead to a malfunction and then burning.

There is an option in all Samsung devices that you can increase and decrease the saturation unlike other smartphones. Yes you can oversaturate Samsung Amoled phones(which makes the screen even beautiful) but you also can make them less saturated than IPS or LCD. I have tested and compared almost all flagship fmartphones and their screens and I can argue with anyone that there is no screen that you can compare to AMOLED. Reason peopole go to iPhone is only due to its popularity at the moment and most of the people who go for Iphone are those who don't really understand technology. They just go for the logo and thats it. If you ask any iPhone user a few questions why he has chosen iPhone he has no answer although he tries not to admit the fact that he only did it for the logo.

For me there is no much big difference on these two panels. The only advantage I feel on the OLED panels are deeper black. Actually, the display is on my M8 is too natural, but look at the display on the Z2. It's has saturated colours. Honestly, when I was using my Galaxy S5, it's starting to hurt my eyes because of the colour saturation of the display. I like saturated colours, but the colour temperature of the Galaxy S5 display is too much.
Yeah, People love to beautiful phones. That's why people appreciate the design language of HTC, Apple and Sony.
Hats off to HTC, Well Done Kudos. Lets hope a few other market leaders (Cough S Cough) take note & start following a company, who even in a financially weaker state, is doing such a wonderful gesture.

Happy that there are stupid people in this world!

This is just matter of taste, also eyes get used to both screens. Or why else millions of amoled users go back to iPhone without any problem?
For my taste, i dont like the oversatured colours of amoled, i prefer natural colours (ips) and how they should look in real life, not oversatured candy colours. But also millions like those oversatured colours and i dont have problem with that, except when im watching movies in my friend place who like those oversatured colours, because same applies in televisions, some prefer more colour some prefer less colour. Like i said matter of taste.

How dumb is that? Putting a phone under your pillow on charge. Probably laid on it funny and ruined the connection causing the fault. I heard it was a fake battery well before gsm arena got hold of the story. Also people be careful if you are playing new Batman Arkham origin game on DROID. My nexus 5 was getting close to 50degrees C playing that and battery health said overheat. - And that was without charging.

luvheer, 28 Jul 2014Noone can say no htc .. if u r cheap samsung fan.. then even god cant save uHTC One (M8)'s camera is really bad they should stop using that gimmick ultra pixel thing start using regular 13-16 MP cameras. What did they think ? 4 MP camera in a flagship device really ? Even my old Galaxy Ace had 5 MP camera.
GoMobile, 28 Jul 2014Which is better for the internals? Plastic that insulates the heat and keeps it inside the pho... moreThese days people only use smartphones for a year or maximum two and Samsung phones pass that time with no problems. I don't like feeling heat in my hands I would rather leave the heat inside the phone as long as it doesn't do any harm to me or to the device. We should understand that Samsung sells billions of phones and if a few of them had a defect it doesn't mean anything at all. This is a life and nothing can be 100% perfect in this life. Also there are other phones that was burnt and exploded in people's hands. So calm down guys this is nothing out of billions units.
todays time samsung is most selling cell phone and every people knows samsung but samsung is made very poor quality of cell phones because he think that all people knows samsung...samsung is the most worst company of the world who make all cell phones of same type...no difference in cell phone except of display...shame to samsung ...
peoples are req. you to change samsung phones or if you plan then never buy samsung in future....
most poor worst company
Crab mentality. Guys, you should just be happy that HTC voluntarily replaced this guy's s4 with a different unit. Faith in humanity is restored.
But with that attitude of yours, it really s*cks bigtime. Why shouldn't be just happy that this guy has a new phone instead of thinking negative things that wont even help each one of us here? st*pid.
