BREAKING: Samsung BUSTED in Note 7 cover-up scandal.

And it gets worse.

"Yet another replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has caught fire this week. Not only did the incident send the device’s owner to the hospital after suffering from smoke inhalation, someone at Samsung sent him a text that was apparently meant for a colleague: “I can try and slow him down if we think it will matter.”

Michael Klering of Nicholasville, Kentucky told WKYT, the local CBS affiliate, that he woke up at 4am on Tuesday, and his room was filled with smoke. It was a recently replaced Galaxy Note 7, and it was burning. “The whole room just covered in smoke, smells awful. I look over and my phone is on fire,” Klering said. “It wasn’t plugged in. It wasn’t anything—it was just sitting there.”

Later that day Klering began feeling extremely ill and went to the emergency room, WKYT reports. This is where the story gets grisly.

“I was vomiting black so it was very scary,” Klerig said. “It was a lot of black stuff, and it didn’t look right.” Hospital records provided to WKYT showed that Klering was diagnosed with acute bronchitis.

Klering says he contacted Samsung after the incident, and the company asked to take possession of his Note 7. Klering said he refused, although he did allow the company to pay to have the device X-rayed. (It’s unclear why the company wanted the Note 7 X-rayed.)

This is where the story gets crazy. Klering received a text from a Samsung representative, indicating their knowledge of his situation. The text was apparently not meant for him and sent by accident:

'Just now got this. I can try and slow him down if we think it will matter, or we just let him do what he keeps threatening to do and see if he does it.'


The evidence suggests that Samsung rushed its phone into production, was slow to issue a recall, and now appears to be suppressing the information that replacements are dangerous. But it seems safe to say at this point that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a consumer hazard that not only puts its users in danger, it’s also dangerous for everyone around them."

I Personally think the Note 7 was such a good phone they literally wanted it back. This phone is sick as fu*k and in not giving it back.. I would definitely call this phone the IPHONE k*llER! so of course an American company (Apple) didnt want to get taken over so they paid people to fu*k their phones up. fu*k APPLE ANDROID WORLD ALL DAY!! #FREEWORLD

i didnt know that, ive got all samsung everything and im pretty happy. Any issues in the past Samsung always quick to send a gift card and make things right. Note 7 is probably the dopest phone i ever used.....insanely efficient making everything u do faster and easier. The way they streamlined some of the features had me very very impressed. Even the smallest things like texting has become easier and the phone is stupid quick. i dont want to give my phone back. MY dad has the iphone 7 and honestly i dont know what the difference is with that iphone and the previous ones besides a better camera.

Ehhhhh idk if I believe THIS story but overall I obviously know it's an issue. A Samsung employee accidentally text his phone that would mean they had his number stored in their cell. Which is unlikely or that they entered in his number then text him which is unlikely as fu*k.
