I am into my 3rd year of a contract a Galaxy S8, with about 8 months to go. My S8 has suddenly split around all sides exposing the inner electronics. I have no insurance and there was only a 2-year warranty on an item with a 3-year contract. The entire phone seems to have bulged outwards, seperating back from front. I have read quite a few people raising issues with gas build up in the lithium battery, so this phone is potentially dangerous. I'm also aware of the issues Samsung has had with other devices, involving heat and battery problems, causing fires and explosions. Does anyone know if there is anything I can do? All virgin said, was to pay off my contract early and upgrade, which I cannot afford to do. I take meticulous care of all my handsets and return them to Virgin Mobile after my contract without so much as a scratch on them. but this phone looks like its about to explode. Not sure if anyone can suggest anything, clutching at straws.
