According to reports, In China, a Xiaomi Mi 4c kept in a user’s back pocket suddenly burst into flames, leaving third-degree burns on the victim’s hips. The issue was caught on CCTV cameras and was first reported by a Chinese news channel Zhejiang. While the fine print regarding the incidentare still to be confirmed, the injuries to the victim looked scary, judging by the graphic images we’ve seen making rounds on the net. Just about a month back, there was a report of a Xiaomi Mi 4i (first impressions) exploding inside the premises of an office in India.
This problem of exploding smartphones has reached a point where flight carriers are starting to ban specific phone models. Samsung was once a victim as the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 caught fire and burnt someone’s skin. Just few days ago again, it exploded in the hands of an innocent 6 year old boy watching video on his Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Samsung is still working hard to limit thedamagecaused by its exploding flagship. The company has already recalled the Note7 globally, and is urging users to exchange recalled units. While we think these incidents will prompt brands to be more rigorous in the testing of their devices, we also recommend that you be highly cautious while using electronics for your own safety.
