After the Note 7 debacle, people have been keeping an eye out for cases of smartphone explosion. Some people have become so cautious they simply don’t buy fast charging or metal body phones which heat up quickly.
Recently a OnePlus One caught fire overnight and exploded giving its users some serious 2nd-degree burns. The user going by the name of slr722gts/Froyo on the OnePlus forum posted some disturbing images and videos showing the extent of his injury. This is what he has to say.
“Well, my one plus one exploded while charging this morning. Almost set my house on fire. The explosion set pillow and blanket on fire as well as carpet……. I got second-degree burn on my left arm and lucky no injury on my face….. I’m still in shock… u see the news but it’s a totally different experience in real life. Support ticket submitted. I was told by online CS that a specialist will contact me soon”.
