“After a horrendous autumn dealing with the fallout of combusting batteries in the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is now reassuring customers that its smaller-sized, S7 range is not affected by the same issue,” Parmy Olson writes for Forbes. “‘Samsung stands behind the quality and safety of the Galaxy S7 family’ the company said in an official statement released late on Friday. ‘There have been no confirmed cases of internal battery failures with these devices among the more than 10 million devices being used by consumers in the United States.”

“Yet there have been a small sprinkling of reports of similar overheating problems occurring with Samsung’s Galaxy S7. Tech journalist Chris Mills at BGR, for instance, reported in early October that his S7 Active had swollen up and broken the phone while it was charging in his office,” Olson writes. “Another S7 user in Canada claimed he suffered second and third-degree burns on his hands after his Samsung smartphone exploded while he was in his car. Daniel Ramirez in Ohio is also reportedly suing Samsung after saying that his Galaxy S7 Edge (a version of the same phone but with a curved screen) exploded in his trousers pocket in May 2016, leading to burns on his groin, leg and lower back. ”
