[Various] Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus Announced - Page 36

post #351 of 609
As I'm sure has been said, the Note 7's battery caught fire. However, we are unsure if the battery is what caused the fire. It is possible it was another component interacting with the battery, or something else entirely.

This is the reason I wouldn't put that much weight in the editorialized notion that "nothing changed, therefore, bad." If nothing changed, and my phone catches on fire, it will be the last time I buy a Samsung product for a while. I highly doubt this will happen again.

Samsung confirmed it was faulty battery from manufacturer though....

What they stated was pretty clear, and they didn't say it was the same, but was oddly similar. You're letting your emotions cloud your judgement here it seems.

They actually confirmed everything but that. It was the confined space and the corners of the frame around the borders of the battery causing issues when the battery would heat up and cool down constantly. It also appears they've changed the cover around the battery as well.

This is why I'm not worried about it. I highly doubt Samsung would continue using essentially the same battery if there was a risk of fire. That would be corporate suicide.

Samsung lost a lot of money on the Note 7 debacle. They don't want that to happen again.

They have plans to sell refurbished Note 7s. I would definitely buy one.

Sorry get your facts straight.... Thanks

According to DJ Koh, the company’s chief mobile executive, there were problems with batteries from two different suppliers. Those sourced from Samsung’s own SDI division short-circuited as a result of damage to the separator, a component within lithium-ion batteries that prevents the negative and positive electrodes from coming into contact with each other and generating a dangerous amount of heat. Batteries from Hong Kong-based Amperex Technology, meanwhile, experienced failure as a result of protrusions in the battery and other quality issues that occurred when Samsung increased its order substantially.

Maybe you should research and not just read some random post. Samsung has confirmed it was the battery.

But I guess that is not what you want to hear.

Reminds me of my poor note 7 biggrin.gif Shocked finally it comes with a black charging cable and wall plug, a nice looking set of AKG earbuds that also fit great in the ear.. Very happy phone feels great in the hands they did a lot of good things this gen!

I was ok with the post until the bolded part.

Facts are welcome. Editorializing on what you think I do or do not believe, however, is not. Respecting members/posters of OCN is appreciated. smile.gif
