Samsung Galaxy Note 9 explodes again

#1 Post by Puppy » Sun Sep 16, 2018 11:36 am

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 explodes inside woman's purse in New York

While many of us are being disappointed by Lenovo products quality lately, it can be always much worse. Especially if they did it again :? Having four Microsoft phones total I still praise its quality. By the way, almost fours years old Microsoft Lumia 950XL has better display specs than the latest most expensive iPhone.

I replaced a battery last week in a Galaxy S7 Edge that was on the verge of exploding. Thanks to the old battery it was very easy to get the back cover off of the phone without heat.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

Hmmmm.....we'll see if this is an isolated incident or another mass problem. I can't believe Samsung would allow this to ever happen again. Apple, Sony and Dell seems to learn from their similar issues.

Oh shi- !
Solid state batteries can't come soon enough. And Samsung would be wise to invest billions to speed up the commercialisation of the techno.

Mine did not get that far. But as I indicated above, it had swelled up so big from charging that the back cover was completely de-glued from the edge of the phone where the battery sits closest.

This phone was not in service because I was irritated with how the phone functioned. I went back to my HTC One Max but used the Galaxy S7 Edge for its outstanding camera and video capability. The phone is in service once again with the fresh battery as the HTC One Max battery is now going downhill quickly and it too will need replacing shortly. That battery however has had a normal lifespan and is around six years old now.
