Usually, when your phone is blowing up, it means you're getting a ton of texts or calls. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case for a young boy in Brooklyn this weekend, whose smartphone literally exploded in his hands on Saturday.
A 6-year-old boy was rushed to the hospital on Saturday night after a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone caught fire while he was using it to watch videos, the New York Post reports. According to the child's grandmother Linda Lewis, the boy is safely home now following the incident, though he doesn't want to be near any phones.
xThe other major smartphone player Android has received less public attention recently. The Google-run mobile company has focused largely on expanding its gaming capabilities in the past few years. Among other projects, Android has partnered with Xbox 360 for an update that applies SmartGlass technology to the gaming console, and gave users an exclusive update for the popular game Fallout Shelter.
