You might not always hear about this but smartphones getting over heated and eventually catching fire isn’t rare.
Its unfortunate that the company always involved in the cases I’ve heard and seen has been Samsung, and on two occasions it has been the S4 model. One of the victims who reported a case of his Galaxy S4 which got burnt over night due to over heating while it was charging about a month ago came out to complain again about the lack of support Samsung has offered him ever since he reported the incident to them.
Samsung promised to give him new S4 but that never happened .The Redditor, TweektheGeek got a response he never expected from a product manager at HTC. They offered him a brand new HTC One (M8) for his burnt Galaxy S4 and the only thing they asked in return was a promise from the Reddit user that, if Samsung ever sent him a replacement in the future, he should auction the phone and donate the money to a charity organization.
This simple gesture might not seem like a big deal, but HTC has already started winning the hearts of people all over the internet. Someone even dropped a comment on how the story just made him change his mind from waiting to buy the upcoming iPhone 6 and now his heading the HTC way, pretty amazing.
