I have to admit, none of my Android phones have ever had this feature. A phone that overheats, melts, develops a red glow and sometimes even explodes. Fantastic way to capture the limelight, don't you think?
And if it happens aboard a flight, you can be sure everybody will be looking at you, just hope that the Marshall on the plane doesn't wrestle the poor passenger to the ground thinking him a dangerous element.
Here's the story by our own Daily Mail in the UK.
Most iPhone users are not taking the threat seriously that it's possible that it might explode while they are using it next to their face. If it were up to me, I would be very afraid seeing how I am a coward and I have only one face.
Here's a video. This one looks like it's not staged. The poor guy seems to be making a video of his house covering each room when his iPhone suddenly explodes. I'd rate this as PG13, it contains some strong language.
Update: I don't like to hoax my readers and I don't like to use fake evidence to make my point. Therefore, in the interest of full disclosure...I have examined that video I had posted in much detail and there's a 50-50 chance that it may be fake. Just before the explosion, on the very left corner of the frame the sparks that come out could be the sparks from the fuse of a firecracker. However, because the video is related to a real issue not a fake one, I am leaving the video up.
