My husband recently mentioned that since the new software update on his S3, it stays on all the time draining the battery, and it gets hot. Hmmmm

Last update (Android 4.1.2) was in December 2012. No problems whatsoever.

Google Play looks to be the culprit this time. It runs incessantly.

Interesting story. My son had a fire in the cab of his newer truck caused by his cell phone car charger. He had used the charger on the way home from work, unplugged the phone from the charger but did not unplug the charger from the truck because he was planning on going somewhere shortly and planned on using the charger again. It turned out that he did not go out again that night. When he got up in the morning to go to work he noticed the windows looked strange. When he looked closer he could see that something had burned in the truck. So not knowing if it was still a fire or what and not wanting to open the door to have something else happen, especially since the truck was parked close to the house, he called our local fire department. After looking it all over the firemen said that it looked as if the charger caused the fired. So now we NEVER leave any cell phone charger, in the house or in our vehicles, plugged in if we are not around. Better to be safe than sorry!

So now they NEVER (not to be confused with never) leave any cell phone charger, in the house or in their vehicles. You must believe this people. They told you this on the internet.

make a joke if you want but after taljing to our firemen and several other friends who are with fire departments in other areas they all agree. So you do as you please, but I also hope that you are not a heavy sleeper or have a car that you do not want to lose!

It would be nice to report the circumstances of these 'explosions'.

Was the battery under load (the device drawing current) at the time in all cases?

Or are there instances of quiescent batteries (not being charged or discharged) simply catching fire or blowing up?

Maybe the hottest (excuse the pun) accessory for Galaxy 3 owners will be an insulated metal box they can keep the phone in, so it won't burn off their shorts!

You know, kinda like the 'fix' on the Boeing 787....

They actually changed the way they wired up the batteries in the 787.

Jim, your phone will self-destruct in 5 seconds ! As always, should you or any of your IM force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. Good luck, Jim. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds.

One way to cut back on free obamaphones - Boom! :)
11:30 AM on 07/11/2013
There is no such thing as an Obama Phone. Take your tin foil hat off and stay on topic.....

However, I know that you are not able to process F A C T S......I am providing a link to where the free phones started and how they have progressed so that you may actually learn something today and could possibly pass on this new fangled thing called TRUTH and KNOWLEDGE to some of your koolaide drinking buddies....

It's those lithium ion batteries, the same technology that plagues the hybrid automobiles that occasionally catch fire. Also the Boeing 787 ran into the problem of overheated lithium batteries that caught fire. Best to shut off your phones when not in use and have your callers leave a VM. Industry trying fix the problem, but no apparent success yet.

I remember I had an HTC years ago that overheated constantly...so much so that one day my hip started to burn when I was out for drinks and I had to take it back like 3 times. They could never figure out what was wrong with that thing...lol. It never stopped me from liking HTC phones. I have one now and love it. Sometimes you just get a lemon out of a good bunch. This could happen to ANY phone manufacturer.

Won't SOMEONE please think of the children!!! I DEMAND that the government immediately BAN anyone under 21 from having a cell phone!! I DEMAND that schools & "public" areas become cell phone free!!! After all this is Amerika 2013 and we MUST be sure that no child ever has anything "bad" happen to them!!!!
10:32 AM on 07/11/2013
yea how you think that one is going to work out?? When parents need to be able to communicate with their children and WTH under 21 ummm most go to college at age 18 or they are working so they need to be able to have a way of communication and its much cheaper to have a cell phone these days then a house phone especially when you can take it anywhere with you...think before you speak for crying out loud.

"As Android Beat points out, two exploding Galaxy S3's out of the more than 20 million sold isn't a terrible average."

Ha! Unless it happans to be YER Galaxy S3. Then the average sucks.

Companies do what they want...Make defective products and sell them..The govenment does nothing but turn there heads the other way..This is nothing new...I am sure the company new about this problem but sold the phones anyway...Money money money matters people don't...

yeah right... she caused it to happen on purpose so she could set up a law suit and win lots of money in a settlement. its totally faked and its not the first time this type of scam has been done.

they actually make a special battery now in Europe... very near where she lives... that if put into certain cell phones or mobile devices will cause the device to explode.

everyone with any common sense knows she did this on purpose. just like the lady that spilled the McDonalds coffee on her legs and sued for 3 million dollars.
