The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has a fiery reputation. So many models are exploding, airlines won't let you use them. One redditor spotted a recent exhibition of the phone that also featured two fire extinguishers.
Timing is everything.

In other words, don't go running back to Apple with your shiny new iRectangles begging for a less-explode-y device. This is still an isolated (and unverified) incident, unlike the dozens of Note 7s with issues ahead of Samsung's recall.
