Just write iPhone exploded on google much more than 4 of them exploded. just iPhone 5 exploded like 20 time or more. even electrocuted someone. Samsung or apple its a fail fail fail and thats it. both are faillure but at least Samsung replacing the phone and accept responsability.

How are they going to respond to it if it's not reported? But, we'll never know, since they responded quickly and responsibly. We do know how Apple has responded to issues with its devices, and that is to blame users and lie.

I agree kiko007 problem is bendgate and deathtouchscreen is a wide spread issue thats was widely reported. What apple did? nothing. so in the end did you know iPhone killed more ppl than Samsung phone since both exist? could not find any Samsung phone killed someone but plenty of iPhone thats exploded or catched fire or electrocuted the user..

Bendgate was NOT an overblown issue by any stretch of the imagination. It was the first phone to accidentally bend in one's pocket. Nothing a case can't fix, but to minimize it is disingenuous.

So is minimizing the "explosive" nature of many Note models. I'd rather have my phone bend than blow up......but that's none of my business.

I regularly hate on Samsung...too much for too little. In the age of $200 smartphones that are perfectly capable paying $700+ for a device is the definition of insanity. Paying $700 for one that blows up or bends I have no words for.

Can't argue with that :D.

Who is minimizing it? It's a serious issue, but they stepped up and took the correct steps. It's true that bending and antenna issues aren't as serious, but that doesn't change the fact that Apple lied about the antenna issue, and tried to minimize the bend issue, and to this day has not admitted to either.

Bendgate was an over-bent issue. The over blown is the note

Oh please. Dun even try to lump these two issues as if they are similar. Still talking about an issue that's from 2015, when the iPhone 6S already comes with a stronger grade of material. A phone that has a higher tendency to bend has yet to cause any hurt or damage to anyone except to charge up the feelings of iphone critics. While on the other hand an exploding note 7 has pretty much made a lot of headlines in the mobile world recently for hurting people and property.

Why have you tensed your mind with explanations of issues which I haven't asked for, and with reading of so many stupid comments. Relax! I was only saying that apple should solve the problem if it exists so as to not make it widespread as those two issues with note 7 and iphone 6. How deep did you go into such a simple sentence??

I have a solution. Turn off LTE Voice. Settings -> Cellular -> Cellular Data Options -> Enable LTE -> Data Only.

Hissing...losing signal...heating...isolated cases but it's still a bad thing going on.

Heating? I haven't heard of that one yet.

I don't think "heating" is a problem in itself as long as it has no other side-effects. All phones get warm doing certain things in my experience... I restored my wife's 7 from her old back-up and it got pretty warm, cooled down as soon as it finished.

Glass or aluminium phone tend to get warmer because those material conduct heat very well. This basically make your phone a giant heatsink. sure its get warm but thanks to this will have better heat dissipation.

Because it's isolated

The only thing wrong with my 7 Plus so far is that it makes a quiet buzzing sound when charging. Haven't seen any other reports about this so I'm assuming it's an isolated incident, and Apple has already told me to bring it by a retail location for exchange.

I like my Note 7 way better. The screen shone with the light of a million suns at the moment of explosion.

Sorry, the iPhone 7 beat that too - Displaymate rated it as the brightest mobile display they've ever tested, as well as the most colour accurate. :D

Hey Jim, did you finally decide on the iPhone 7 or are you waiting to see what next year's SE will be like? I recall you saying you prefer the smaller display of the SE.

23. Jimrod

Posts: 1605; Member since: Sep 22, 2014

I've stuck with the SE for now, I've only had it a few weeks but it feels great, very fast and natural to use that size again now I'm used to it. If next year's SE or iPhone 8 are interesting I'll be looking to upgrade then... My wife got the 7 (she usually has my old phones but I sold my iPhone 6 as it was still worth nearly £300 a few weeks ago!) - it's very nice, looks and feels good, very quick, very loud! It's not a massive jump from what my 6 was overall though. Just improved a bit in most areas. The taptic feedback button is interesting, works ok but feels like the bottom third of the phone "clicks" rather than just the button but not unpleasant. I'll give the camera a go soon when she's bored of it, first time she's had a phone and said she "loves it" though!
