Samsung phones are catching fire in almost every country and in every name. Recently, we reported that a Galaxy Note 2 phone was exploded in an Indian flight. Previously, we had reports that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 catch fire when charged overnight. However, now a new report has appeared online which turns a new fire to the explosion case of Galaxy Note 7 phone from the manufacturer.

A person in Philippines named Weng Briones, uploaded some pictures to social media showing the burnt out phone, which was not any mid-ranger but again a top-end phone from the Korean giant. The pictures posted show out a burnt phone that was once a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Currently, we can’t give details on this incident but Briones says that he has returned his burnt phone back to the Samsung Mobile Store in the Supermall in Taytay.

Weng Briones says “We went to Samsung store at SM city Taytay and they have refunded my money in full. Kudos to all the staff of Samsung SM Taytay for their immediate action regarding my issue. In spite of the unfortunate incident, I am however, impressed by their aftersales-support. Much respect to Samsung. Keep safe everyone.”


Earlier, there were some reports that Samsung has been sued by a man in New Jersey, whose Galaxy S7 Edge phone exploded leaving second and third degree burns on his body. The victim had to undergo painful skin grafts on one of his legs. As a result of the incident, he has suffered permanent and life-altering injuries. Before this suit was filed on Samsung, another customer reported that his Galaxy S7 Edge phone also caught on fire while was charged overnight.

A number of smartphone buyers have lost their confidence in the Korean giant after the Galaxy Note 7 phone was exploded. The sad thing about this story is that at the time when Note 7 was launched it appeared that this phablet will be an exclamation mark on this year for the manufacturer. There were talks that the Galaxy Note 7 issue might cost Samsung upto $1.5 billion. On the other hand, there is also possibility that future handsets from the Korean giant may also be avoided by the consumers.
