Here are several pictures of a Galaxy Note 7 setting ablaze during a battery test
Since the global recall of the Galaxy Note 7, there have been quite a few units that exploded, some even injuring people in the process. Even though Samsung issues numerous statements asking customers to exchange their faulty units as quickly as possible or at least power them down, some ignored the company's call or perhaps the message did not reach them in time.
If you're on the fence on whether or not to buy the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which is supposed to be safe since it comes with a battery manufactured by another company, then you should know that recently a “safe” Galaxy Note 7 caught fire in a plane.
And in case you're wondering what damages a Galaxy Note 7 set ablaze can do, we've prepared a few pictures for you, which should be more than suggestive.
A Singaporean battery lab thought it would be wise to do a stress test on the Galaxy Note 7's battery to learn its limits. Well, you've probably guessed the outcome, but if not, you can check out the pictures below.
Suffice to say, that it didn't take long for the phone to overheat and eventually going up in flames completely after more pressure was applied to it. The good news is, if we're allowed to say that, the phone will start smoking for a while before catching fire, so you should have enough time to get rid of it and avoid injuries. Or not, which is why it's better to not own a Galaxy Note 7 at all, at least for the time being.
