“Samsung’s troubles have apparently just spread from the Note 7 to another flagship phone,” Mark Spoonauer reports for Tom’s Guide. “According to Android Headlines, a Canadian man says his Galaxy S7 Edge caught fire while he was driving home from work. And that’s not the only incident.”
“Separately, Phone Arena reports that an employee of one of the big U.S. wireless carriers told the site that one of its customers’ Galaxy S7 Edge devices had exploded while it was charging overnight using the included charger,” Spoonauer reports. “In the case of the first Canadian gentleman, he says that he smelled something burning and saw smoke coming from the center console, at which point he threw the S7 Edge out of the window and then covered the device with snow.”
“An Ohio man is suing Samsung because he claims that the handset caught fire in his pocket, and he had to undergo painful skin grafts to address the second- and third-degree burns,” Spoonauer reports. “Meanwhile, Samsung still hasn’t pinpointed the exact cause of the Note 7 explosions and fires, according to The Wall Street Journal, and the company has apparently lost more than $20 billion in value as a result of the recall.”

Samsung is a criminal enterprise.

And now the criminal chaebol refuses to pay their undiscerning pigeons for damages they’ve caused – not even from a sleazy, illegal slush fund.
