Samsung Mobile Phone Note S4 be careful

Last Update: June 21, 2017

Today I got a call from a client, I picked up my mobile phone ( Samsung Note 4 ) as usual and I thought did I drop my phone? Somehow it looked out of shape. I stopped the call because it was going on and off and my phone was out of the cover on one side. It was also warmer than usual.

Walking already ahead in my thoughts, thinking to get a new phone. Ah, I hate to transfer and install all the data each time to a new phone.

Wait a moment I said to myself...

Looked closer and started to investigate what is wrong with my phone. I open the back cover and there it was my battery totally bulged.


The battery is one year old. Oh, I got a shocked all these crazy stories went through my head where the phone battery is exploding.

Took the old battery out and brought my phone to the Samsung repair. There I get told Ma'am this is normal, you got a bad batch. We will not charge full price only half price. Warranty is finished only 1 year.

I am happy I changed it, but it keeps me now aware that this can happen from one minute to the other. Last night my phone was ok.

Well, you never stop being surprised and I thank my Guardian Angels for looking after me.

Check your phone batteries from time to time you never know.


Cheers Sylvia

I agree, with you, I also have an iPhone for private use. But the company requires you use Samsung.
Put in the bill to let them know.

Yeah this is a known issue with the Notes. Samsung actually had them to explode. I have been a Samsung user since the Galaxy S5. I absolutely love it period I now have a Galaxy S7 Edge and I just recently bought a Galaxy S8 for my wife. The Galaxy's do not have the same type of battery as the note so the issue is not there anymore. Also Samsung has put these batteries through a rigorous testing program so that this issue should go away with the new Notes.

Most carriers would replace the phone for free. Well maybe I should not say most, Sprint and T-Mobile are the ones that I am sure of that replaced the phone for free. Also you could go online to my store or something like the Cellphone shop and get the battery at one-tenth the cost of the carriers price.

I'm happy you got it fixed. I actually was aiming for a Note 4 phone but my friend's exploded or leaked when she was coming back from vacation. I knew the newer models were exploding so I thought the Note 4 would be safe, I guess I'm going a different route altogether now. Technology is getting so weird these days.

Well better get another Android or i-phone.
I will not recommend Samsung Note 4 anymore.
Cheers and good luck on searching or getting the right phone
