My Samsung phone starts to emit smoke and unpleasant smell.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey everyone

 

Recently i found out that my Samsung phone (Galaxy J6+)randomly heats up to an untouchable temperature and it emits an unpleasant battery burning smell. It happened to me 2 times last week. But now it seems fine to me. I turned off the Phone immediately so that it would not catch fire and kept it off for few hours. Yesterday too it happened to me. When i had to attend a wedding, the phone started producing that smell and i immediately turned it off. I spent that whole day and night without my phone and used a nokia 3x4 keypad phone until today evening after my school. I wrote this topic on the same phone and was a bit warm . But i didn't feel it until i hold it for a few seconds. I'm not worried about the damage of that phone in the future but I'm worried about the injury it could cause to me and others if it starts burning. So guys i kindly need your help regarding this whether should i consult a nearby Samsung service center for a fix or other ways for it. I really need your help. This is my first phone i got after many years of using my mom's phone. I expected this as a good device but i didn't even imagine that this would happen to me. So please help me guys

My device: Samsung Galaxy J6+

 

I could've used my PC to type this but my exams are near and i don't want to waste my time on my PC. So this is a quick typing from my phone so it may contain some grammar mistakes and spelling mistakes. And Sorry for my bad english. 

 

Thank you guys.

Love u all.

Going to the manufacturer is definitely the way to go. I'm not even going to be able to recommend anything else, because this sounds like a serious battery problem (either in the battery or your phone's side).

The J6+ is an entry level device. Depending on the cost to repair, you might actually be better off just replacing it.

It is not usable in its current state for sure

The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

It's enough for my use(It was my mom's phone for 2 weeks after purchasing, then she bought a Galaxy S9. If i wanted to buy a phone, i would go for better models)

Indeed, this story and stories just like it are enough to keep me away. Suddenly I don’t mind paying just a little more.

I'm not asking you to get a new phone. But what if a repair shop says it would cost $90 to fix a $100 phone?

 

Its is much more of a possibility for entry level devices.

 

How much your phone costs, how much its worth to you, and how much you are willing to spend to have it repaired, are all up to you.
