It seems we are constantly reading about iPhones and Samsung Note 7’s with a nasty habit of smoking. Since the beginning of this week, several Galaxy Note 7 replacements exploded in different parts of the world. We’ve already reported about one such case that happened in the United States and forced the evacuation of an entire plane after a Galaxy Note 7 phone almost exploded. And as Brad reported HERE, it seems Apple and Samsung are trying to outdo each other with the latest and “Hottest” devices.
Today a video emerged of another REPLACEMENT Note 7 going up in a puff of smoke. Yes, that’s right, this was a replacement Note 7. A supposedly safe device that was should have been free of the original issue. However, it seems that it’s not safe to own the new Note 7 at all!
The video was taken by a customer in a Burger King restaurant in Korea. It shows a staff member trying to remove the burning unit with a pair of gloves. Check out the video below:
Meanwhile, those of us with a BlackBerry device can sit back, feel sorry for those poor sods, and enjoy knowing we have the safest devices. Both hardware wise, and software.
