Recently iPhone 7 revealed its vibrant colour in Special event and while its biggest competitor Samsung Note 7 is now showing its True colour which is denting Samsung reputation. Samsung Galaxy Note 7 units are ticking like a time bomb and exploding while using carelessly says report.

After the incident in Australia, where a man was presented with a $1,400 bill because his handset exploded and caused damage to his hotel room, the most recent explosion cases are now coming in from the U.S.A Florida resident's were a Note 7 ignited while charging in the center console of his Jeep Grand Cherokee, and that the vehicle was thoroughly destroyed in the ensuing fire.

Beginning with the jeep incident, victim Nathan Dornacher took to Facebook to relay the incident. He claims that he left his jeep on, outside his house, to keep the AC running and his charging point working. His family was about to head back out in a few minutes, so he didn't shut the jeep off. When he got out of his house, he saw his jeep in flames. After the Fire Department finished their job, he shared images of his charred smartphone and damaged car.

Fortunately, nobody was in the vehicle when the device allegedly exploded. Dornacher, his wife, their 8-year-old daughter, and the family dog had driven to a Labor Day yard sale on Monday morning. Although insurance is paying for the totalled vehicle, Dornacher says he’s still out thousands of dollars for modifications he made to the Jeep and he truly loves his Jeep

Samsung said in a statement, "We are working with Mr. Dornacher to investigate his case and ensure we do everything we can for him." The company also urged buyers to swap their handsets at the earliest.

Another incident was reported from South Carolina where a resident's house was set on fire because his handset reportedly exploded while on charge. He had plugged in his Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in the garage for charging, and had left to pick up his two daughters. When he got back, he found his garage in flames.

The incident also comes at a time when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is considering a total ban of Galaxy Note 7 devices on US airlines. While in India DMRC has already banned Note 7 in all the Domestic and International airlines.  
Samsung hasn't issued an official worldwide recall yet, but has announced an exchange policy for all the Galaxy Note 7 buyers. Even though sale has been suspended, because there is no official recall, third party retailers are still able to sell it. What’s your take on it?
