There's a crazy exploding phone epidemic these days. First the Samsung Galaxy Note Fiasco got so bad that the Korean tech manufacturing giant discontinued the device altogether.
Samsung fanboys were definitely feeling the smugness from Apple lovers, who just used the blown-up phones as added fuel for their iPhone-romance.
However, there were some reports of exploding iPhone 7 batteries, too. Like that dude in Australia who's phone blew up while he left it in the car when he was surfing. There were other claims as well, but they didn't really catch fire or incite the same kind of public outcry like the exploding Note phones did.
The user, Brianna Olivas, claims that she wasn't even using the phone when it happened and it just erupted without warning.
"The next morning I was asleep with my phone charging next to my head, my boyfriend grabbed the phone and put it on the dresser. He went the the [sic] restroom ... and from the corner of his eye he saw my phone steaming and [heard] a squealing noise. By the time he got over to the phone it had already caught fire, he quickly grabbed the phone and threw it in the restroom ... as soon as he threw it in the restroom is [sic] blew up and more smoke started coming out of the phone," she said in an interview with Mashable.
It also started a conversation on the eternal struggle between iPhone and Android users.
Hopefully this isn't a widespread issue, getting hot battery acid on your face is never fun.
