According to the owner, this Galaxy S7 Edge got very hot even though it was not charging at the time.

52-year-old Seema Agarwal said that her Galaxy S7 Edge has never been repaired before. She purchased the phone on 28 December 2016. After several years, at the end of December last year, her phone suddenly got very hot. So to be safe, she placed the smartphone on the porch before going out. She didn’t think that her phone would be caught fire that quickly. Seema Agarwal said she always uses Samsung’s charger and charging cable.

After the incident, she called the police immediately and also contacted Samsung. But after the investigation, the Samsung representative said that the cause of this incident is due to the external heat source that damages the smartphone and its battery. Seema Agarwal's family was not happy about that result and planning to sue Samsung.

In 2018, an owner of the Galaxy S7 Edge in India also reported that his phone burst into flame and caused him burn injury. However, according to Twitter user Vatsal Gupta, his phone was severely damaged due to the incident while he was put it for charging unlike the case of Seema Agarwal.
