We have heard about the last case of bursting the phone into flames so long ago that we almost forgot that something like this could take place. And suddenly there burst out news about the fire - with the star of the season in the lead role!
Galaxy S III sparked into white flames!
The unlucky phone holder "dillo2k10" near Dublin says about the event at one of the local forums. A few days ago he drove in his car with a newly purchased Samsung, mounted in the holder. As he notes, the phone was launched, but there was nothing connected to it. Suddenly, at the bottom of the phone appeared sparks and smoke. They came from the microUSB socket, although as shown in the pictures, it was not rather a source of short circuits. The main suspect is a team-transmitting antenna, because after the incident, the phone can be run normally, but no longer found the network. The fire was not dangerous, no one hurt - the driver only ate a little bit of fear. The unlucky phone went to service expertise to Carphone Warehouse, where it was purchased. Neither the seller nor the manufacturer did not comment on the incident until the expertise of the phone will be carried out. Probably the unlucky user will receive a new copy and a defective will go to research and I believe that if the ignition bears the blame for the design flaw, the manufacturer of the S III will introduce necessary changes, and start the action service. In the meantime, I suggest to refrain from any judgments, because I suspect that a key role was played by a handle. The unlucky user do not describe what handle he used. It can therefore be assumed that this was a cheesy, universal handle from China, not at all adapted to the big Galaxy. It could put pressure on housing, which led to a short circuit. On the other hand - the overwhelmed phone should break, and not burn ... So, just in case, I suggest you not to crush too much your "S III" and do not wear them in the pocket of tight trousers.
