Spontaneous combustion iPhone 4 in Moscow?

Planet iPhone, an enthusiast site in Russia, displays photos of an iPhone 4 that ‘sizzled and popped’. Planet iPhone also reports there are at least three other cases of this happening over the past six months.

The owner of an iPhone 4 was not able to power on his phone and decided to bring it to Alex Zykunov,  a repair engineer with i-Help.su. Zykunov tried plugging the phone into its charger, but within seconds the phone began to smoke, and later blowing out its back panel. Most of us at this point would simply toss the phone or contact the manufacture for a replacement, right?

After the phone stopped smoking and cooled off, the iPhone 4 “survived” with the help of Zykunov. ”Back at the office has already cooled down to the iPhone, I started to disassemble it soon to find out what had survived. As soon as I unscrewed the motherboard, it became evident that the battery is tanned seared plume volume buttons, front camera cable, GSM-antenna (no obvious signs of it was, but later found out that she got) and completely knocked out the screen. Quickly dismantling its own iPhone and inserting the motherboard burned out, I found that the board has not suffered, and, moreover, properly worked, ” said Alex on PlanetiPhone’s website.

After replacing the defective components with new ones, the phone was safely returned to its owner.
