Well its not the first time we are hearing about a Samsung Galaxy device explode, and as a matter of fact a Samsung Galaxy S4 itself has been through this before. The news comes from a Reddit user EddyBraxx when he posted a thread about his Galaxy S4 exploding in his hand while he was simply walking. The user quoted the incident as below.
Hi reddit. So yesterday at approximately 3:15 P.M. I was walking home from work with my S4 in my right hand. All of a sudden I hear and feel a loud POP and HISS. I immediately drop my phone to the concrete, my initial reaction was that a wasp or bee landed on my hand and stung me. I look down at my phone to see it still hissing and there was a visible flame coming out of the upper right hand side where the lock button is located. I left it sit on the ground for a few minutes as it continued to smoke.
Well this is a very strange incident as the phone wasn’t put on charge or being tampered with (according to the user). The user claims that the battery has not exploded and is working fine, he also tested it in another Galaxy S4 to be sure. The damages to the phone however are major as the touchscreen isn’t functioning, So there is no way this is going down without a full explanation from Samsung (A replacement too for the users loss). Have a look at the images that the user shared with the fellow Redditor’s.
Well these images to convince us to believe the user’s story of what happened but its just our view and we will wait to hear from Samsung on this matter. Let us know what you think about this incident and the previous ones that have been taking place on the account of EXPLODING GALAXY DEVICES in the comments section below.
