‘Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 is not the company’s only smartphone prone to dangerous explosions, according to a new lawsuit that says a Galaxy S6 Active shot out flames 5in high and left one user with melted flesh.
More than 90 Samsung Note 7 phones have caused damage, and problems continued even after the company recalled and replaced some of the phones.
The Note 7 is now banned from many airlines, forcing the company the open stalls in airports where owners can swap or refund devices before boarding.
The reports also mentioned problems with the Galaxy S2, Galaxy Tab 2, Galaxy Tab 3, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
“As the batteries progressed and became more powerful, the consequences became more significant,” said Gene Stonebarger, another attorney representing the Coverts. “This information is being repressed and has not been made public by Samsung. They are clearly aware of the dangers of their phones beyond the [Galaxy Note 7].”
“People should not have to live in fear that they are walking around with a ticking time bomb.”
A Samsung spokesperson declined to comment’.
Herein lies the ultimate question
Android or Iphone?
