“A Samsung Galaxy S7 owner fears she could have been killed as it overheated in her hand and exploded,” Nick Pisa and Daniel Jones report for The Sun. “Supply teacher Sarah Crockett, 30, told how the phone blew up in a busy cafe even though it was not being charged.”

“Similar incidents have been reported previously when the phones are on charge, although a case like Sarah’s has also emerged in the US,” Pisa and Jones report. “And experts say it could spark a fresh crisis for Samsung. The South Korean giant has already had to issue a full recall of its latest handset, the £750 Note 7, after devices burst into flames when charging.”

“Mum-of-two Sarah, 30, was with husband Matt, 29, when her three-month-old mobile started to balloon in size before melting in clouds of white smoke in Witham, Essex,” Pisa and Jones report. “She said: ‘It suddenly just expanded in my hand and got really, really hot… I lost all my photos, including my four-year-old son Ollie’s first day at school. But what if it had been in his hands? What if I had been driving?'”

MacDailyNews Take: Why’d you lose your irreplaceable photos? Oh, right, because instead of buying a real iPhone, you wasted your money on an exploding knockoff. Even if your iPhone evaporated, you’d still have your photos because iPhone is much, much more than the device itself. It has a complete ecosystem surrounding it. When we take a photograph with an iPhone, it’s instantly on our Macs, iPads, Apple Watches, and other family members’ iPhones. When a fragmandroid settler snaps a photo, it burns up in their hand.
