thats what you get for having built in battery with no protection around the lithium cell because idiots want their phone thin

Think the reason for this happening is over heating or defects in the batteries themselves, not damage to the actual battery like manipulation, cracking or puncturing. having a removable cover/battery wouldn't solve overheating, in fact I think having a metallic (if they are metal I don't know) unibody phone to utilize the phone as some sort of heatsync might aid while adding its own protection.

It's a stretch, but the FAA has already warned passengers to not use the phone. So what's to say it won't be banned entirely?

Too late. As i was boarding the plane on Sunday, the Delta clerk announced that "all Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones are not allowed on any flight." I didnt see anyone approach the counter about it, but they specifically stated that it was all of those phones, not just the original released versions.

I board the plane again on Friday, and will pay close attention to see if it has changed.

Chemical batteries in tiny plastic boxes with built in metal and glass shrapnel that you can literally snap in half by putting them in your pocket wrong... Yeah I can't see what could possibly be causing this! rolleyes.gif

It is indeed. I think for most people, the idea that the phone has the potential to explode in your pocket is a firm deal breaker. There is nothing that could make me own that phone, even if it was free.

I've never had any issues or heard of any issues like what you describe. Definitely never heard of a phone snapping from putting in a pocket wrong, must be serious metal deficiencies with the individual who did that.
