The Real Reason Why Your Galaxy 7 is Exploding

So, we all know that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phones are catching fire at an alarming rate.  These phone are hot!  Not hot as in good, but hot as in "burning down your house".  

Samsung issued a recall on these phones and the replacement phones proved to be no better than the original "pocket fire crackers".

So, one might ask, why are these replacement phone causing fires at the same rate as the original "fire starters".  Surely, a company like Samsung with billions at stake could find the cause and fix it.  Right?  

We all were informed that the cause of these mini meltdowns was flawed lithium ion batteries.  Lithium ion batteries are not new.  It was thought that replacing these batteries would resolve the issue, but it has not.  That's because the issue is not solely a hardware battery issue.  The cause of these fires is most likely a flawed charging algorithm embedded in the firmware of the phone.  

So, some of you may ask: "What is firmware".  According to About.com, "Firmware is software that is embedded in a piece of hardware. You can think of firmware simply as 'software for hardware.'"

The flaw could be a simple coding bug or even a firmware virus. I knew of a really smart guy who theorized about a virus that could live in the firmware of a network printer.  The virus would spread through the network and infect computers as most computer viruses do.  Different from most viruses, this virus would retreat to the firmware and lie dormant until after the network was cleaned and re-infect the network later.  The same could be in effect some these Samsung blow torch phones.

The conventional wisdom of replacing parts and issuing re-calls says that if the problem is isolated to a specific item/part then replace that item/part.  Unfortunately, if the replacements are showing the same level of failure, then you have to look at the system in which the replace item/part resides and the surrounding environment which makes that item/part work.

So, you heard it hear first.  Samsung's exploding phone problem is directly related to the firmware.  All of the evidence points to it.

What do you think?
