A second replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 device, deemed safe by the company, has caught fire in the US, US media report.

Samsung has been forced to issue new models of the smartphone following complaints of faulty batteries.

A man in Kentucky said he was "scared to death" when he woke to a bedroom full of smoke, local media say.

It comes after another replacement Note 7 caught fire on a Southwest Airlines plane on Wednesday.

"The phone is supposed to be the replacement, so you would have thought it would be safe," Michael Klering of Nicholasville, Kentucky, told local broadcaster.

He added that his device was not plugged in when it caught fire at his home on Tuesday.

Where Samsung make these phones? I seriously suspect that some Chinese company might be sabotaging it. Anything is possible in the corporate world! :)

On the contrary,Samsung batteries made in china are more reliable than their Korean version.
Interesting thing is that it was replacement , and there is some other issue other than faulty battery. Previous versions were blasting while charging, Now replacement mobiles are blasting even without charging.
Hope Samsung to announce 3rd replacement against 2nd replacement claims

lolzzzzz

SAMSUNG just shot itslef in the foot.
Actually i love note series, I have iphone Se, but still i love note 4. I don't know what happened to note 7 .
Or Samsung went too greedy by continue their product with Non-removable batteries. This is bomb in pocket. I feel so sorry for customers even they can't remove battery Nor it is worth to get note 7 replacement.

In . Camera league, Iphone wins . Way ahead. Even my 12 mp iphone camera beats 16 MP of note 4.
While on brightness sector, I love watching songs on Note 4. Nobody can beat it on brightness .
