It could be said that Samsung are clearly misleading people when they claim that the new Galaxy S III is “Made for Humans”. As the pictures show, it may be designed to murder them viciously and without remorse.
Pictures posted by an angry unsuspecting member of the public calling themselves Dillo2k10 show that Samsung’s dastardly plan came close to fruition with obvious burn damage on and around the charging port.
Dillo2k10 said “‘I was driving along with my Galaxy S3 in my car mount when suddenly a white flame, sparks and a bang came out of the phone. The phone was destroyed and it slightly burned a piece of plastic on the inside of my car. ” whilst adding “‘I’m really annoyed. That could have burned the side of my face or through my pocket and my leg, or set fire to my bed. It’s very dangerous.”
Quite why anyone would have a car mount in their bed or in their pocket is beyond my comprehension!
Samsung have said that they will investigate the claim and check if the unit is liable to overheat and is now trying to get hold of the unit.
A spokesman said: ‘Samsung is aware of this issue and will begin investigating as soon as we receive the specific product in question. Once the investigation is complete, we will be able to provide further details on the situation.’
The phone which has been called the “iPhone killer” will now have to be redubbed the “Human Killer”.
This is not the first time that smartphones have mounted murderous missions against their human captors, with iPhones having been reported as exploding and overheating.
One does wonder how long it will be before the technology is perfected and all smartphone users simultaneously burst into flames!
We here at Coolsmartphone recommend that you only use genuine manufacturer recommended accessories with your smartphone in order to help prevent accidents whilst reminding readers that there are over 10 million Galaxy S3’s in circulation and this is the only report so far of an “exploding” handset.
