Man sues Samsung, saying Note 7 exploded in his pants - CNET. Having passed on the overpriced Note 7, I am feeling a little vindicated by the battery problems being experienced by Samsung. I love most Samsung products; especially the SmartWatches, and I expect to purchase a Gear S3 Frontier when available. But, I have a hard time with the report that a man is suing Samsung claiming his Note 7 exploded in his pocket. If true, this gives new meaning to wearable computing. Up until now, the batteries only combusted while being charged. But, the litigation process will determine what happened, and we will have to wait. Samsung, in the meantime, is going to be putting the phones back on the market later this month. I suspect that most consumers will wait to see if the new ones are actually fixed. I will keep my Nexus 6P, which is now my daily driver. I still have my scratched Note 5 as a backup; but, I love the software updates on the 6P, which come every month. Will you buy a Note 7?
