Vyralize: A Seoul man had a case of hot pants after a Samsung Galaxy Note battery in his pocket caught fire, resulting in second degree burns.
Hmmm he must use his phone quite a lot. I'm assuming he has two batteries and swaps them from time to time to allow for one to charge while the other is in use.
He should sue the company and get a compensation the hospital bills aren't going to pay themselves. ;)
"but they did make it clear that the lithium-ion battery " he can only sue himself for being stupid, he didnt take care of properly sealing off the terminals from metal to metal contact from whatever he was doing.
Ignore LOL_WUT. Either he is a troll or just doesn't read the stories.
no lie on monday my phone got so hot in my pocket that i literally had to turn it of and take the battery out or my S3 would of probably caught fire. It took around half hour for it to cool down.
ive had my phone discharge in gps mode on the dash, in the hot sun. lol it went into emergency suicide shut down mode.
My nexus 4 gets pretty hot as well and it's Lithium Polymer. When it's doing something intensive that required 4G, it goes past 100 degrees sometimes. :/
this is why you get an iPhone.
Errr what? There have been a number of instances where iPhones have overheated and ignited.
I will never buy Samsung anymore is so damn spread everywhere it makes me sick. Not to mention quality on some products. No more Sam for me ever.
All smartphones have this issue just don't be a idiot and over charge your phone
I don't believe it, I think he's a liar, liar...
