Samsung Galaxy S III explodes, injures 18 year old girl

0. phoneArena 09 Jul 2013, 01:12 posted on

An exploding cellphone is no joke; a Samsung Galaxy S III exploded in the pants of 18 year-old Fanny Schlatter, and as you can see, it did plenty of damage to her thigh not to mention the handset. Now, we've seen people claim that their phone exploded out of nowhere only to find out later that the device was put in the microwave to cover up the fact that it had been dropped in the toilet first...

Slow down cowboy -- we don't know if they are responsible. If she did some tampering or a 3rd party part caused it, they should cover it.

don´t use apple´s strategy. I don´łt care what kind of app I use. I can´t explode. It shouldn´t have ended that way. You can´t blame owner of this phone. I´ve nevef heard about such problems in Nokia or lg or even htc products. It´s not the first time when samsung device melts or explodes. Maybe toying with high speed cpus bring it about.

He didn't say 3rd part app, he said 3rd party part. Perhaps he wondering if she used a 3rd part battery.

She did... Tampering? Yeah right... now she's part of Jihad and won't mind getting herself exploded or burned to ashes just to try to get some dough from Samsung? What is that now, Apple Jihad soldiers? So then they can say "Loving it is easy. That's why so many people do. And they won't be exploded for that, rest assured." for the new iPhone?

it is either Samsung's or a 3rd party accessory or an alien did that...

actually if they could repeat the process successfully...and consistantly, what an awsome I.E.D. idea- US Gov would be all over it - imagine- "Hey some ignorant American left his --" BOOOM!!!! Gotcha! Of course Apple might sue claiming they came up with i.E.D. and have purchased the patents just a week ago....
