Samsung vorrebbe insabbiare la storia del Galaxy S4 andato in fiamme [Video]

Qualche tempo fa un Galaxy S4 di Samsung ha preso fuoco mentre si stava ricaricando durante la notte. Il proprietario si è quindi rivolto all’azienda sudcoreana la quale, sorprendentemente, ha chiesto al proprietario di non divulgare la voce e che avrebbe ricevuto un dispositivo sostitutivo.

Richard Wygand qualche giorno fa è stato svegliato nel cuore della notte attirato dal fumo e dall’odore di plastica bruciata. Controllando cosa stesse succedendo il ragazzo ha scoperto che il suo Galaxy S4 stava prendendo fuoco mentre si trovava in ricarica tramite un caricatore originale di Samsung.

Queste cose di per sé non dovrebbero essere comuni, ma d’altronde sappiamo che in rarissimi casi può succedere anche ad altri dispositivi, iPhone compreso. Ciò che lascia di stucco è però la risposta dell’azienda sudcoreana, la quale ha tentato di insabbiare l’intera vicenda.

Il ragazzo infatti ha riferito prontamente a Samsung quanto successo; l’azienda ha voluto che Wygand fornisse una prova di quanto dichiarato ed il proprietario si è quindi attrezzato per filmare i danni subiti dal dispositivo e di caricare il video su YouTube.

Samsung dopo aver visto il video ha quindi ricontattato il ragazzo dicendogli che avrebbe ricevuto un nuovo dispositivo in sostituzione se avesse accettato di rimuovere il contenuto da YouTube. Sconvolto dalla reazione dell’azienda, il ragazzo ha quindi deciso di realizzare un secondo video in cui spiega l’intera vicenda e di caricarlo nuovamente su YouTube.

Per finire, lo sfortunato proprietario ha anche pubblicato la lettera ricevuta da Samsung. Eccovi la versione originale in inglese:
