Phones bursting while on charge or spontaneously is not unheard of. This even happens with phones of reputed brands. The most recent phone bursting incident took place in Chandigarh as a two year old OnePlus One burst while charging. The images were shared by phone’s owner Deepak Gosain on Twitter. From the images, the incident looks pretty terrifying. The battery is totally exploded and the explosion burnt part of the table that the phone was resting on as well.
But things took a turn for bizarre as Deepak Gosain upped the ante on OnePlus. According to Mr. Gosain, he immediately contacted OnePlus service centre but they did not help him in a desired way. OnePlus however claims that though the phone is not in warranty anymore, they offered Mr. Gosain a brand new OnePlus Three owing to the seriousness of the incident. Mr. Gosain then increased his demands claiming monetary compensation and also an iPhone 6S. Ironically, the iPhone 6S has also had bursting incidents. Who will win this tug-of-war is not clear at the moment.
