Twitter Can't Stop Roasting The New Samsung Phone That Keeps Blowing Up


Apple and Samsung have been dominating tech news this week, thanks to their latest smartphones.

A couple of days ago, we showed you a bunch of hilarious reactions people had to Apple's unveiling of the new iPhone 7 features.

If you thought those remarks were pretty entertaining, you'll be glad to know the iPhone 7 isn't the only smartphone out there that's getting a ton of attention on social media.


Apparently, Twitter is also blowing up with reactions to Samsung's phone recall. It's being referred to by some as "Flame-Gate."

Yep, if you haven't heard the news, Samsung recently had to recall 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 phones around the globe due to battery-related issues that caused the phones to catch fire.


In fact, the battery problems are so bad that the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has warned Samsung users to turn off their phones, and some airlines have even banned passengers from bringing these explosive smartphones onto planes.


Check out the tweets below to see some of what people are saying about the Samsung's "hot" new smartphone.

Samsung recently recalled Galaxy Note 7 phones because their batteries were bursting into flames...

...and now, Twitter is blowing up with all sorts of hilarious reactions.

Some people compared the volatile phones to hand grenades...

Others compared the Galaxy Note 7 to the iPhone 7...

...and some tried to figure out which was worse, the exploding batteries or the lack of a headphone jack.

Some people even made remarks about their new phone FOMO, despite the fact that these phones are basically blowing people's dicks off.

Resourceful Samsung users posted simple suggestions about how to make the phone safer, like using it underwater to prevent fires...

...and placing it on ice to fix the overheating battery issues.

Others urged Samsung users to take extra safety precautions while charging these bad boys... placing it in a fire-retardant case to protect yourself from third-degree burns.

The best reactions came from people who decided to poke fun at the problem.

They posted all sorts of clever puns about the explosive phones.

No, really, the Twitter puns have been on fire since the recall.

If Twitter puns aren't the things that make you tick, don't worry...

...because people are also posting some plain old Samsung jokes that are totally the bomb.

I think it's safe to say iPhone users have finally won the age-old, "Which phone is better?" debate.
