It seems like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is not the only smartphone in Samsung's lineup that has a defective battery. A Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge burning down in the Philippines is just one of the Korean tech company's list of recent controversies.

Just this week, a Facebook post went viral revealing a burnt down Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The owner of the defective Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge said that her child was using device when the incident happened.

As reported by Yugatech, "the device was being used by her child when a thick smoke suddenly popped out of nowhere and internal flames consumed much of the phone's display and back panel." On her updated Facebook post, the owner of the damaged device went straight to a Samsung Store and had the device checked.

Luckily and rightfully, the Samsung Store refunded her in full. Stating that even though the phone was faulty, Samsung was able to somehow make up for it by its wonderful after sale service

This however is not the first instance that a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge went to flames. Earlier this year as well a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge exploded, this time in Ohio resulting to even more serious damages.

Daniel Ramirez, the owner of the damaged Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge exploded right inside his pocket, causing second to even third degree burns to the victim's leg. Ramirez is suing Samsung for damages, stating that the injuries caused permanent and life altering consequences.
