    I don't think it's possible for us to meet the high standard of confusion that you've set - the rest of us are, however, running a close second.

    Galaxy S III Explodes Severely Burns 18 Year Old Girl

    Samsung Galaxy S III explodes, injures 18 year old girl

    It's no secret that LI batteries can catch fire, buy generally only if they've been physically damaged. There have been cases of defective batteries catching fire even without damage, though (see Sony and IBM / Lenovo computers), but I haven't heard of any cases in the recent past.

    It is really sad. It hardly happened in the era when there were no smartphones. For example Nokia 3310.

    People never saw their phones exploding without any reason. Though I don't suppose using smartphones. In fact I'm a believer of smartphones.

    Because, in that era, LI batteries weren't in common use. NiCad and NiMH batteries don't catch fire, but have a much lower energy density. People want ultra-thin phones, which means thin batteries. A NIMH battery the size of the GS3's would probably last only half as long (and people already complain about battery life).

    I feel badly for her, but this is a very rare occurrence at worst. And it won't surprise me to find out the battery was damaged in some way.

    If it is true, it is most unfortunate to have this type of malfunction. Battery would be the best suspect for 'blowing up' accidents.

    I hope the girl is ok. That is a really unusual battery malfunction.

    She put it in the microwave though. It was because she dropped it in water and didn't think to put it in rice.

    Do you have something to support that statement? There was a case in Ireland last year where someone microwaved their phone after getting it wet, but this is a completely different case. Did you even read the linked articles?

    According to an article in a Swiss publication, she also had a lighter in her pocket. I don't know which was the cause of the problem, but the lighter must have made it worse.

    There are many reports. Just Google it.

    None of which say anything that this girl did anything wrong. Maybe she did, but there's no evidence of it yet.

    It says it in the phone arena article. Look again.

    No, you look again. The article says:

    Now, we've seen people claim that their phone exploded out of nowhere only to find out later that the device was put in the microwave to cover up the fact that it had been dropped in the toilet first. Looking at this situation, one can see that this is not the case here.
