You’ve heard countless stories of the Galaxy Note 7 catching fire and burning up in spectacular fashion. There’s something wrong with the device that even Samsung hasn’t figured out yet and that’s one big reason why it decided to kill the flagship. The latest report is a bit amusing. It’s about a thief in China who stole a Galaxy Note 7 only to have the device explode on him.
The thief reportedly stole the Galaxy Note 7 from an internet cafe in China’s Anhui province. His law-breaking efforts amounted to nothing when the device exploded on him, leaving him with a worthless pile of burnt technology.
The thief is said to have stolen the device while the owner was taking a nap inside the cafe. The police recovered the remains of the exploded smartphone but apparently they’ve yet to nab the guy.
As you an imagine, the internet has had a field day with this latest incident. It’s not that hard to see the humor in this, people are cracking jokes like this is a new anti-thief technology that Samsung has built into the device and others suggest that perhaps the owner made the device thief-proof by ensuring that it blew up if and when it was stolen.
All the more reason for you to pay heed to Samsung’s calls and return the device.
