After the burning disaster associated with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 last year, the Korean tech company went back to the planning board and came up with a whole eight-point battery safety check. This is to ensure that future smartphone devices that they will produce, such as the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ would not suffer the same fate. And now, a test proves that the Galaxy S8's battery won't explode even if it experiences stabbing with a knife.
As reported by Mashable, Samsung's new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, blends a uniquely beautiful design and performance effortlessly. However, the question of all gadget enthusiasts now is how much safer the battery of the new mobile device compared to the Galaxy Note 7? A recently uploaded video by the "What's Inside?" YouTube channel in collaboration with JerryRigEverything, confirms that the Galaxy S8's battery won't catch heat or explosion, even when you stab it.
The two YouTube channels are very well-known for their videos. The What's Inside channel is recognized for cutting products in half in order to see what's inside a gadget, literally. And now, with the help of the main person behind the JerryRigEverything YouTube Channel, they pry off the glass back of the smartphone, and take a Dremel to the front, cutting through to the back where the battery is located.
As they continue to operate the Samsung Galaxy S8, the guys took a saw to the top lid of the smartphone device to break through the display and slice it in the middle. They did it, but apparently and unexpectedly touched the battery, causing the handset to start hissing and heat up. The YouTuber ran the device outside because they are afraid that the Galaxy S8 might explode inside the house. However, as reported by Tom's Guide, the battery inflated and just stopped.
And with that, good job, Samsung! Now, Galaxy S8, as well as Galaxy S8+ users can rest assure that their smartphones will not blow up like the Galaxy Note 7. However, every one of us should still not try any of these unscientific tests as shown in the video.
