Don't waste time on that guy, he's a proven idiot who thought RAM should give much higher Geekbench scores.

But it was. Facts show that 2 people claimed a Note 7 burned their vehicle. However one of them was shown to be a scam. After all use some common sense if you have any. After reports on the news about the potential of a phone exploded. People with kids you think would actually risk their lives and put a phone that would explode in the car? Even though I did continue to use my Note 7, when I got in the car with my wife and kid I turned it off and I also didnt charge it in the car. All my calls get forwarded to my Gear or if its that important, that is what VM is for. Crack all the joke you want. No matter what OEM this happens too, its not funny. The fact is, everyone holding a phone whether their brand has ever had the issue or not only matters to people like you. But the fact is, every phone has a battery and that means every phone has the potential to be a ticking time-bomb. So while you are joking about the plight of others, just remember that phone you put to the side of your face or hold in your hand, could explode I can say, if a phone ever exploded at someones head, it may not kill them; but it will cause a very severe injury which would include loss of an ear, damage that is likely not repairable to your head and face and cause mental and physical trauma that no one can imagine. For you to even joke about it, shows what your mentality is.

The other car fire blame on the note 7 wasn't even a note7.

It was not hundreds and some of the less then a hundred was proven to be false. This might be a one time thing but also could be the start to more.

You do realize something like only 57% or whatever it was gave their phone back? The investigation is still ongoing and never stopped. Hundreds is 99% very likely.

It's an iPhone so Apple will of course blame it on the user. Although that may be a bit difficult if it was delivered in that condition to begin with.

Lol so it begins. I knew "reports" of other exploding phones will pop up from other companies. I bet this story and a bunch of the other exploding Samsung phones are scams. So stop reporting these until it's fact checked so stupid people won't try to make their phones explode to get some .

I think that people are taking advantage of Samsung Note 7 battery issues to abuse their devices and make the company look bad. There were like no reports of explosions before the note 7,now we see a new one every week.

One iPhone 7 so far, Kiko....one single iPhone 7. How long until a certain someone shows up acting like it's a widespread issue with the 7/7 Plus?

I've said it before. The reports that we generally ACTUALLY hear or learn about through there media only represent 5-10% if the actual cases. With the Note 7 i bet the majority of us here or anywhere for that matter didn't learn of more than 10. Yet there were nearly 100 confirmed reports in the US alone. This may well be the only exploded iPhone so far but I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't nearly a dozen by the weekend. Just depends if it's this one defective unit or a defect in the whole production run.

I hope this is an isolated incident. We don`t need another N7 fiasco. BTW IMO Samsung handled it well.
