Is that the one that keeps exploding?

Yeah, that could be problematic on a plane methinks.

Yeah its the one that keeps exploding. At first they recalled a few of them then it was a mandatory recall for all of them and they were replacing them with new ones, but even the new ones are exploding so they have stopped production on them.

Ah yes! I read that Samsung is taking them out of circulation anyway, seems like they won't be around much longer in any case

Well I am glad I didn't end up with that one...actually probably was close to...If I had waited much longer I may have very well wound up with that phone. I wound up with a Galaxy S7... originally had the S7 Edge and shattered it after 2 hours...yeah that sucked. Anyway, last time I go all out over a damn phone, especially when they carry the risk of exploding, not the first time this has happened with phones and other mobile devices...
