Now beleaguered Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge is reportedly catching fire

“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.”

MacDailyNews Take: Those who buy pretend iPhones cobbled together by a South Korean dishwasher-maker deserve to be burned (metaphorically, not literally.)

Samsung is a criminal enterprise.

They do not give two shits about their customers. For proof, look no further than the fact that Samsung has no clue why their phones explode, yet they shipped replacements anyway, assuring their customers they were safe.

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

        1. Amazing how everyone in every culture is raised to worship the true god excepting the polytheists. If those worshipping the one true gawd variant A are right, what about those worshipping the one true gawd variant Q?

          I’m awaiting the Flying Spaghetti Monster who comes on Halloween and gives all the good kids iPads. The bad ones get flaming Samsung Phones.

        2. Wow, did someone dare cite the Bible? Shocking.
          Surprising that it took so long for the haters to jump on the change to take a dump on it, with their usual gentle kindness and tolerance.

          Here’s your chance DavGreg, to tell everyone how stupid God believers are. Please, bring up the Crusades or Inquisition or deaths in the Bible next. Or the Mithras/Horus = Jesus myth.
          After all, we believe in really nutty things, bizarre concepts such as life beginning at conception (which it does) and men marrying women. (So they can, you know, have children…)
          Go for it.

        3. What you do not realize is that many do not hate the Bible or Christianity. Like Ghandi, we just wish those who claim to be followers of Christ acted more like he did back in the day.

          Second, we want your churches to pay taxes and want you to keep gawd out of politics.

        4. “What you do not realize is that many do not hate the Bible or Christianity..”
          Really? So referring to God as “gawd” you consider to be respectful, and you also want non-profit entities to pay taxes only if they are churches?
          Well that all seems perfectly rational. O_o

          You do know that people every single day, all over the world, act as Christ did, but because you only pay attention to the anti-Christian media you never see it, you only see when people of faith fail.
          Even that is odd though, because you think Christ either never existed or was a liar, and you consider the Bible to be hogwash. So WHY do you want those who follow a fictional man to more closely adhere to his fictional teachings???? That makes no sense.

          You know what is *really* funny?
          You want “gawd” out of politics, right?
          Your wish is already being granted. We’ve got two wonderful candidates running for election right now. They are the finest, most trustworthy, competent and ethical leaders each party had to offer:

          Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton.

        5. I find it funny that anyone actually thinks that God is kept out of government in practice The biases of the people we elect into Congress have always affected our laws for good and bad.

    1. look up at all the mac books, ipods, iphones, and other devices that have killed, electrocuted, catch on fire leaving the customer severely burn or damaging the property. iphones have caught on fire in mid flight and have burn down cars.

  1. How is this news just now? The guys leg pics were all over weeks ago

    There is also video a few weeks ago of a plain S7 blowing up in a cafe in England, watching the video is scary, especially when the lady says that her child was playing with the phone in the child seat in the back of their vehicle on the way to the cafe!

    1. look up at all the reports of iphone 6 catching on fire since March 2016 to now. iphones have killed people and caused more severe damages and even electrocuted people to death. the ipod touch originally was the first mobile device that caught on fire than the iPhone started catching on fire in 2009 but small reports at that time. Apple has received several dozens reports of its devices catching on fire that the media hasn’t cover cause they only hype the reports of samsung or other companies if they have an issue with the device such as battery being flammable.

  2. As was learned with the exploding Note 7, there are many more exploding Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge phones than what is being reported. Samsung attempts to persuade their customers NOT to report these incidents to the press.

    It should be the civic duty of EVERY inflicted Samsung customer to report these issues to News organizations because Samsung has sold many more millions of these devices than the Note 7, and they will probably be very reluctant to recall them. If these Samsung S7 Edge devices have the same issues as Samsung Note 7 devices then the general public had a right to know, especially when traveling on airplanes, trains, etc. By reporting these issues Samsung customers could be saving many lives.

    1. On an only semi related topic. A friend of mine who is flying to Mexico this morning casually mentioned her Note 7 in conversation. I stoped her right there. “You’re not planing on taking that phone on a plane are you?” She then said, “Oh don’t worry, this is one of those replacement phones they fixed.”
      Needless to say I set her straight. After her asking the usual questions of “what if I just put it in my luggage?” – She’s now flying to Mexico with only the iPhone her husband has.

    2. iphone has been catching on fire since 2009. iphones have killed customers and in some cases even electrocuted their customers to death. there’s been many reports of the iPhone 6 catching on fire in people’s pocket or exploding. it all started with the ipod touch of reports of it catching on fire.

        1. illiterate* did you even research all the reports of iphones catching on fire and causing severe damages from 2009, 2010, 2011,2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. iphones have even electrocuted people and killed them.

  3. A friend just told me his S& Edge is pretty warm after use and charge. His is though the At&T Next plan, and it two months in/ I did not have the answer so I am asking here. Does AT&T exchange those “phones” for an iPhone? Also his wife has the S7 Active. They would like to come over to real phones, and not burn up their pockets…money wise, nor burn down their house charging their “phones.” Thanks guys. BTW, almost got him talked into going all in on Apple.

    1. you’re not supposed to leave your phone over night to charge if you do you’re supposed to turn off the fast charging technology and use it in normal charging mode. if you go to settings it says, “device might hot while using the fast charging technology”. when you active fast charging the device charges at a faster Rate than normal and lithium batteries are pretty sensitive and anything can triggered them if you’re overcharged the battery overnight. also third party chargers and unauthentic charges have caused samsung and iphones to catch on fire in the past. cheap chargers aren’t up to industry safety standards and they can make your phone catch on fire. ipods were the first device to catch on fire in people’s pockets or hands. then in 2009 iphone fire reports started showing up on the Internet. iphones have killed, electrocuted, catch on fire in people’s pocket, severely burn the customer and caused property damages. iphone have blown up car and have caught on fire in mid flight. iphone are infamous for overheating. last time I check iphone they tell you to wait a while for the phone to cool down.

        1. cheap chargers can cause a galaxy or iphone to catch on fire like the ones sold on amazon, but the ones reported weren’t all third party chargers. some people iphones caught on fire weeks after using the device or even when they were using the charger that it came with then it caught on fire for reason.

  4. Samsung also revealed on Tuesday that it will finally push a previously reported update to European users that limits charge to Galaxy Note 7 phones still in the wild to only 60 percent of maximum capacity. Users with the phone in Europe should expect to see the update happen on Oct. 31.
