The world’s leading smartphone makers just can’t stop copying each other. While the company has certainly improved its image over the past few years, Samsung is likely most famous for being an Apple copycat. After all, the company was sued repeatedly by Apple for stealing its technology and designs.
The question is who copied who? Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has been famous for causing series of untimely explosions in the past few months due to battery issues.

The same unforeseen forces that landed on Samsung Galaxy Note 7 have also landed on iPhone 7 Plus as reported by a user who ordered iphone 7 Plus in China. According to the Reddit user, a co-worker pre-ordered the iPhone 7 Plus and was excited to get it, only to be greeted by an exploded phone.
Unlike Samsung’s somewhat widespread Galaxy Note 7 problem that was due to a battery defect, however, this iPhone exploded while in transit, according to the phone’s owner. When he received the iPhone he ordered and took it out of the box, this is what he found.
Details are scarce for the time being. “Something happened between the factory and delivery,” is all the phone’s owner had to say in his thread on Reddit. Apple hasn’t commented publicly and neither has UPS, but one or both companies will likely have to investigate the matter when the phone’s owner contacts Apple for a replacement.
It’s not clear at this point what caused the accident, but physical damage can’t be ruled out. A few days ago, a Samsung tablet exploded on an airplane during a flight. The device was found jammed between two seats, which may have caused the device to overheat.
Keeping an iPhone or any smartphone in your back pocket isn’t advisable. Not to mention that the iPhone 6 Plus is a device known to bend under certain pressure. That said, these are still isolated incidents that were not caused by manufacturing problems, which was the case with the Galaxy Note 7’s battery.
No comments from Apple, But we are pretty sure something looks fishy. Am so scared to advise anyone to purchase the iphone 7 which is actually called a “Plot of land” device.
