Another Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Has Allegedly Exploded In A Jeep In Florida
If you happen to be one of those who have been clinging your Samsung Galaxy note 7 and haven't returned it yet for recall probably because you believe your own unit won't explode or for other reasons best known to you, then you might want to rethink your decision as this might not be a good idea.
There's been another news of a Galaxy Note 7 exploding in a car in St. Petersburg, Florida as a resident named Nathan Dornacher and his family were unloading his Jeep of some purchases made at a yard sale. He left his phone inside the car to charge up and when Dornacher returned to his car, it was in flames.

Fortunately for him, firefighters were able to put out the inferno but not before his Jeep was completely totalled. Dornacher also shared his experience on Facebook.
Not the barbecue I wanted on my day off. We go to a garage sale to grab a desk for Bonnie get back to the house unload the car leave it running AC on to keep the car cool we were planning on grabbing the dog and Bonnie and heading to Petco, I head back out to the car to grab my phone which was on the charger (me and Lydia always fight over the house charger) go to open the door and see flames inside... open the door and it’s engulfed run inside to get extinguisher and of course not to be found yell at Lydia to call Fire Department and well here is the end result....
Dornacher also stated on Facebook, that while he wasn't positive that the Note 7 was the cause of the fire, "all signs are pointing that way." He also posted on Facebook that "Samsung has blown me off after over a hour on the phone this morning. Never called back as promised. Guess it is time to get a lawyer. You had your chance."
" Samsung already spoke with fox news that they are aware of the incident and is "working with Mr. Dornacher to investigate his case and ensure we do everything we can for him."
Personally i really don't think it's worth the risk, if you are still hoarding your then I will advice you to return it back for recall and if you can't wait, you can go ahead and exchange it with a less explosive Galaxy S7 or S7 edge.
Its better to be save than sorry.
