After at the beginning of September, Samsung announced the revocation of all its most modern phones Galaxy Note 7, the company's misfortunes were not over: the phones continued to explode. In the United States in recent days, a car and a garage burned down due to Galaxy Note 7, and the six-year-old child got burns. Airlines began to prohibit using Galaxy Note 7 on board; Samsung himself demanded from customers to disable the phones and no longer include them. "Medusa" tells what happens after recalling the devices.

Airlines began to prohibit the use of Galaxy Note 7 on board aircraft. In the US, the air transportation regulator demanded that passengers stop using such phones on board. In addition, on all American flights Galaxy Note 7, it is forbidden to pass into baggage. Use the phones also banned Australian airlines, individual carriers in Asia and European Air France and KLM.

In Florida, a car burned down due to the inflammable phone. On September 7, Nathan Dornacher left Galaxy Note 7 to charge on the dashboard of his Jeep Grand Cherokee. Looking out from the window at home, he discovered that his car was embraced by a flame. As a result of the fire, the car completely burned down. On the same day, it became known about the fire in South Carolina because of the inflammable Samsung phone. September 11th the phone caught fire in his hands at the six-year-old boy from New York when he watched the video.

Samsung demanded from customers immediately disable the phones. On September 9, the company has extended a statement in which it was said that Galaxy Note 7 cannot be used. They must be turned off and exchanged for new devices. While the corrected Galaxy Note 7 is not produced, customers can get a temporarily different phone model.

The company lost $ 22 billion dollars. From Friday, September 9, Samsung began to cost an 11 percent cheaper. According to Bloomberg, this is the largest two-day fall in the value of the company's shares since 2008.

There is nothing unknown to investigate the causes of exploding batteries in Galaxy Note 7. But there were already rumors that Samsung intends to change the main supplier of batteries. For past games of Galaxy Note 7, two-thirds of batteries supplied Samsung SDI subsidiary, and 30 percent is the Chinese ATL, which supplies the batteries for Apple. Now, according to media reports, the main supplier will become ATL.

Infrequently, the smartphones are sometimes exploding. Often it happens during charging, but not always. According to sources, at the very end of last year, Samsung Galaxy S7 exploded in one Indian family. And it happened when the device simply lay.

Sources say that the owner of the smartphone felt that he was too heated, and managed to take it on the porch at home. After about 15 seconds after that, the smartphone exploded.

Another exploded Samsung. Galaxy S7 worked exactly three years, finished life on fire

It is interesting what happened exactly three years after buying a smartphone. Fortunately, no one was injured. The smartphone was carried to Samsung's company service center, whose specialists later stated that the cause is a kind of external temperature effect.

The family owners of the smartphone notes that the latter has always used the exclusively branded charger and was generally neat with the device. In addition, the family uses samsung smartphones exclusively, but after the incident, it is thinking about changing the brand. Also victims will try to achieve justice through the court.

Samsung phones' quality control of Samsung phones includes 8 testing items ready to produce products:

  • • wear resistance
  • • Visual inspection
  • • Radiography
  • • Charging / discharge test
  • • Test for common volatile organic chemicals

In 2014, the flagship smartphone of that time LG G3 almost burned the whole apartment. According to the user who described his story on the popular REDDIT resource, the phone unexpectedly caught fire in the room of his little sister. This happened at the time of recharging the device when it lay on a teenager bed.

The Chinese "killers of all smartphones" also left not the most pleasant mark in history. At the end of August 2015, a resident of New Delhi named Ankur Dugar woke up at nine o'clock in the morning from a sharp smell of smoke. Looking around, the man noticed his blazing OnePlus One, which at that moment was recharged on the bedside table.

Dougur, without thinking for a second, threw the phone away from bedding, and then put out the device, but by the time the smartphone remained only a charred plastic.

The owner who barely lost the dwelling and even his life decided to contact the OnePlus service center, but the company's representatives refused to change the device to a new one, without believing to the Dugar.

Another such thing happened with another owner of the Chinese smartphone: about the same time, OnePlus One exploded in the user's pocket under the Nick Miyzu, when he descended into the subway. The device lay in the back pocket of a man's trouser. As a result of fire, the tissue went around, and the young man received minor bodies of the body.

In a moment, the man saw the sparks, after which I decided to quickly discard the Xperia T3 far away.

As a result, when the device turned out to be on the floor of the apartment, it caught fire even more: then the man neatly threw a sparkling smartphone into the street, where he did to the end.

The device at that time was in charge.

The man told that the smartphone unexpectedly began to heat up stronger than the usual one. Then Raj threw him on his table and departed away, suspecting something. The owner was not mistaken: sparks flew from the phone, and then it completely covered the flame.

Apple

Perhaps most often (of course, if not considered Samsung) iPhones of different generations fell into the media headlines.

As a result, the flight had to cancel.

In addition, Google employees asked for forgiveness from a man and gave glasses augmented reality Google Glass.

Battery capacity: 4325 mA · h.

iPad.

In 2013, the iPad Air tablet at that time was decided to hit product fans right in the Australian Store: on the counter, buyers saw a real firework. According to eyewitnesses, first sparks flew from the device in all directions, and then drowned in the flame at all. Spectators noted that the fire proceeded from the connector for charging Lighting. Most likely, the cause of the explosion was the defective battery of the tablet. Apparently, there was no fire extinguisher in the store, so the staff decided to wait for firefighters.
