Number '7' seems to be an extremely unlucky number for the smartphone giants including both Samsung and Apple.
After numerous incidents of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 blasts, how can iPhone stay far away in the competition? It is very recently that a Reddit user posted pictures of his matte black iPhone 7 Plus that exploded inside the package box.
Apple Following Samsung's Footsteps
Apple has often accused Samsung of following them, and get inspired by their design and concept for several years. However, it seems to be the other way around now.
After several Samsung Note 7 explodsions, Apple is not quite far from the race after its flagship iPhone 7 Plus recently exploded.
What Exactly Happened?
The Reddit user, Kroopthesnoop recently shared a few pictures of his burnt up matte black iPhone 7 Plus. The caption stated -"Something happened between the factory and delivery."
Unlike Samsung, the iPhone is a step ahead as it exploded before even the purchaser could use it. So, Apple absolutely can't claim the user of mishandling the phone.
