Samsung Notes have recently been recalled due to a number of phones randomly detonating. This has mostly only taken place with Note 7s, but other models have been known to spontaneously combust as well. A fellow Highland student and owner of a Note 4 said that while his phone did not explode at any point, the lithium battery did begin to catch fire and melt his case. Fortunately, he was able to, and I quote, “Colby that thot into a sink” before anything too serious happened. Oddly enough, he still has his phone, and all that had to be done maintenance wise was the replacement of his battery and the case. So before you buy yourself a brand new Samsung Note, maybe you should question how much you value the skin on your thigh.
