Samsung Galaxy S III explodes in girl’s pocket, and boy oh boy it did quite a bit of damage

AndroidBeat: Phones explode. It’s unfortunate, but it happens. I can link you to stories of iPhones exploding and Nokia phones exploding and even Samsung phones exploding, but this isn’t a “oh look, this company doesn’t care about their customers” type story. This is a “holy crap, this poor girl” story.

Looks like a multimillion dollar lawsuit right there.

And boy oh boy if Apple uses this to make ads that bash Samsung for this. That would be fun to watch.

Happened to many many iPhones, iPods, Macbooks, PC's PSP's, Nokia phones, etc for many many years. Basically this can happen to any device with a lithium ion battery.

That's just horrible, that poor girl will be scarred for life. I haven't owned very many Samsung phones (not smart phones anyway), I don't know why either cause I've heard they're good products. I guess it was my Spidey sense.

Dang. I hope my GS3 doesn't explode.

Draper2702d ago

If I were you, I would throw my GS3 out through the window right away, while you still have time.
I mean, who would risk their life for a phone that can explode at you any moment?

Note: This comment is loaded with sarcasm. Lots of it.

I'd still go with Samsung Galaxy S III just a far better product and now has Jelly Bean

That piece of shit named Samsung. I only needed 3 pieces of their hardware to break beyond repair to convince myself that Samsung is a Shitty brand. No buy from them since then and no buy in the future what so ever. Samsung is spread in the world like a virus.

Oh, if only I didn't have this avatar, I could say something funny here.

by your logic

PS3, 360, wii, pcs, fuck every piece of technology is a piece of shit... because every piece of hardware has these symptoms, manufacturing defects,etc

you are such a know nothing its not even funny.
