The news about phones catching fire comes up all the time. Specifying the recall of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7; the company made headlines with its faulty battery that put the device at risk of catching fire. However, the news we just came through has caught us by a bigger surprise than that given by Samsung.
Apparently according to Reddit, a post was updated of an iPhone that had been claimed to catch fire during its delivery as it had been received burnt by the owner. The phone was delivered in a burnt condition, in fact, with a mere damage to the box.
“Something happened between the factory and delivery,” Redditor KrooptheSnoop said.
This post definitely raises questions towards the credibility of the news. One can never be too sure about the legitimacy of such posts. How can a phone catch fire and the box stays intact with hardly any damage? Not sure I buy it.
Lets see that if this news leads to another company recalling one of its finest launch, however, I doubt anything like that would happen. But then again, I did have the same feeling when the first Samsung Galaxy Note 7 caught fire.
