Samsung Galaxy S7 Phone Burns Woman’s Boobs: Cheaper S7, Free Accessories Offered By Best Buy, Amazon

Close

Samsung's phone fiasco continues. A Galaxy S7 phone reportedly burned a woman's breasts after she slipped the device into her bra.

Georgie Tufnail, a 31-year-old mom in the United Kingdom, got a "hot and seeping" wound from the phone. She described the injury as "a line of disgusting green puss," adding that the placement of the wound can be blamed entirely on the too hot Galaxy S7 device, the Mirror reported.

Tufnail is taking antibiotics to counteract the problem. Her doctor knew that Samsung caused the wound even before she said it.

Tufnail has advised other people against tucking their phones in their bras. She said that she knows many others who have the same habit as hers because "it's just easy access." As of this writing, Samsung hasn't issued an official statement about the woman's complaints.

This wasn't the first time that the reputation of Samsung's products got tainted. The whole world is aware of the tech giant's exploding Galaxy Note 7s caused by problematic batteries.

The company's washing machines were also recalled last November after the appliance tore itself apart and exploded. Apparently, the machine wasn't properly equipped to handle great vibrations.

Samsung isn't the only tech giant that suffered from bad customer reviews. Owners of Apple's iPhone 6 phones also complained about a battery bug or defect that dramatically reduces the device's power from 50 percent or 30 percent to one percent. There were also instances when the iPhone 6 will just shut down without any preamble.

You will be delighted over Galaxy S7 price cuts if you're still a Samsung fan and is undeterred from the bad publicity the company's products get. Now that the Galaxy S8's release date nears, retailers are offering deals that will allow you to buy a Galaxy S7 at a much cheaper price.

Those who purchase a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge and activate it under AT&T, Sprint and Verizon will get a bonus $100 Best Buy gift card. Not only that; buyers will also get a free Samsung Fast Charge wireless charger (worth $59.99 value), a free 256 GB Samsung memory card (worth $249.99) and an extra $100 in savings. Check out the deal here.

Amazon, meanwhile, sells an unlocked 32 GB Galaxy S7 for $480, which is $90 cheaper than the original price of the handset. The retailer's unlocked Galaxy S7 Edge can be bought for $554.99. That's $115 lower than the original cost.
