It seems like we have had way to many stories lately of smartphones bursting into flames or exploding. This is all that remains of an HTC One X in Taiwan that caught fire spontaneously while charging. The reasons it exploded are not yet known since it is still being investigated by HTC.
At least the smartphone’s owner was unhurt. A few weeks ago, a man’s Samsung Galaxy S4 burst into flames in Hong Kong, burning down his house. There was also a case in Switzerland where a teenage girl was injured after her Galaxy S III exploded. And we can’t forget about the iPhone 5 that electrocuted a woman in China.
It’s like an epidemic lately. Usually the problem is using third-party batteries or unofficial chargers. Some One X owners are suggesting that a swollen battery might have lead to the explosion in this case. It’s like attack of the killer phones all of the sudden. Everyone better be careful.
