    So I’ve seen a few of this guys videos and he’s a fairly new channel but man he’s a complete Apple hater like on a level of 10.

    I think it’s funny that he’s comparing these battery issues of the iPhone 8 to that of the Note 7 mentioning 10 so called cases of the iPhone 8’s battery exploding and overblowing the issue compared to Samsung which saw many more reports of Note 7’s exploding.

    I don’t think Apple is perfect by any means but stuff like this kind of grinds my gears because it seems like anything that happens to Samsung or and Android OEM for that matter is brushed under the rug but with Apple it’s blown way out of proportion.

    So are Android users blind to the shortcomings and more forgiving of the “atrocities” committed by their OEMs as compared to Apple?

    Disclaimer: I’m not lumping all Android users into this label but man this guy is really annoying haha.

    I think regardless of whether this guy is a hater or not, an Apple phone exploding is an Apple phone exploding. It depends on how many and that's for the official reports to confirm.

    I just think it’s ridiculous that he’s already comparing it to the Note 7.

    Yeah but there’s a big difference between the battery expanding and the phone breaking apart as it should (i.e. iPhone 8) and a battery literally exploding and creating fire (i.e. Note 7). Lithium batteries are an unstable technology. Expanding battery issues are going to happen when millions of units are out in the wild. What Samsung did, on the other hand, was gross negligence and outright criminal.

    The guy who made that video is clearly just trying to stir the pot.

    Overblown? There were enough confirmed cases for the Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation, and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, to literally ban the device from air travel of any kind.

    Yes, overblown. A couple started smoking on a plane. Then came the memes & etc. IPhone's & Androids malfunction all the damn time. So again, all this stuff gets pushed out of proportion. Just like the bend gate & antenna gate stuff.

    Did any of those iPhone 8 with expanding battery issues happen in the US, or were they all in China, Japan and other Asian countries? 10 isn't very many, regardless of where they happened.

    Yeah, I think I’ll trust the findings of multiple Federal agencies over Android fans on the internet. You know how many man hours and how much paperwork goes in to implementing a nationwide regulation or guidance like the Note 7 no-fly ban? It isn’t something to be taken lightly.

    You get that on both sides of the fence and like others have said, an exploding phone is an exploding phone. Samsung caught a ton of heat for this last year, so expect apple to face similar heat (no pun intended)

    The difference is Samsung had over 75 cases whereas Apple only has had 10 according to the ***** in the video. So right now it’s not even close.

    I'm assuming you mean 'Hypocrisy'..? Not trying to be flip at all, it's an international community here and sometimes communication can get broken.

    I mean, when the Note 7 fiasco happened, plenty of people in the Apple community had plenty to say... Why would it be different coming from the other side of the isle..?

    If Apple had 76 cases would that make the situation more reasonable or something?

    Yes because then there would be a bigger issue. If 70+ iPhone 8s explode than yes Apple would deserve the same scrutiny but that hasn’t happened.

    Does Apple really deserve the same amount of criticism as Samsung? There’s a big difference between a battery swelling and a battery exploding and catching fire. We are not seeing reports of exploding iPhones.
