Do Samsung batteries have a problem?

The news came in after the popular YouTube tech reviewer Mrwhosetheboss (Arun Maini) posted that several of his Samsung device's batteries have ballooned suddenly. This includes the Galaxy S6 which was launched back in 2015 and the Galaxy S10 from 2019 both of which are flagships in their own time.

At first, he thought that UK's heatwave might have done this. But he also compared it with his other phones which were stored in the same conditions such as iPhones, Google Pixel and Asus. However, all of those devices' batteries never bloated out at all.

Samsung reach out to the YouTuber and collected the said devices but then, two months later, the South Korean phone maker never said anything about their findings.

Meanwhile, it's not only Mrwhosetheboss who encountered the issue. Similarly, "This is" YouTube Channel owner, Matt Ansini also shared that all of their stored Samsung phones prior to the launch of the Galaxy S20 became bloated. And that his other phone brands never had the same issue despite being kept in the same place.

There were commenters that shared the same issue while on the contrary, some users also said that their Samsung units were still fine in the same conditions.

Even Marques Brownlee from MKBHD had twitted that "I've had several Samsung phone batteries swell up years after I stopped using them. Never any other brand." 

As of now, this battery situation only occurs if it's not being used for a long time. It is also known that batteries should circulate properly to prolong their life and prevent swelling. However, that's not the case for other brands as they seemed normal as per the claims.

This is not the first time Samsung faced criticism due to battery problems. Their Galaxy S7 series, another "flagship" was recalled as multiple exploding cases were experienced by their consumers.

Samsung has to provide an official statement about this matter.

What do you guys think?
