Caught in a Lie…He Put his Phone in the Microwave
About two weeks ago, we posted a story about a Galaxy S3 that had melted. The owner of the phone posted pictures of his Galaxy S3 in a consumer issues forum, crying about what had happened to his phone. Apparently, he led people to believe the melting happened as a result of him using his phone in a vehicle mount. After sending the device to Samsung for the claim to be investigated, it was determined the problem was not with the phone, but with the person handling it. Fire Investigations UK, a company hired by Samsung to determine the cause of the damage, concluded the damage was a result of the phone being placed in a microwave. Shortly after Samsung made a public statement explaining that the damage was not caused by the Galaxy S3 itself, the phone’s owner took to the forum he originally posted in, singing a different tune. Boards.ie forum member “dillo2k10″, formally retracted his previous claims in a statement reading “I would like to retract my original statement. The damage to the phone was caused by another person, although they were attempting to recover the phone from water this later caused the damage shown on the phone. It occurred due to a large amount of external energy and there was no fault with the phone. This was not a deliberate act but a stupid mistake. I am unable to comment any further.” After all this commotion, one word comes to mind when I think of him trying to get away with microwaving his phone to fix water damage…FAIL. Dillo2k10, neither you or your “friend” (yeah right) are too bright.
