Samsung Galaxy S8 battery survives being sliced and stabbed

After the fiery debacle associated with the Galaxy Note7, which was ultimately and unsurprisingly pinned upon its battery, Samsung went back to the drawing board and came up with a comprehensive eight-point battery safety check to ensure that future smartphones, such as the Galaxy S8 would not suffer the same fate.

Now, What's Inside managed to get their hands on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and, in collaboration with Zach Nelson from JerryRigEverything, gradually disassembled the phone. Of particular interest is what happened after the device had been subjected to a Dremel multitool, which managed to cut through the smartphone's battery.

Jeez that's crazy, I wonder what would happen if they did this to an iPhone ?


Might move to samsung. The iphones to me are no longer appealing.


Not bad. Just a few months ago they were ticking time bombs and now they are getting sliced. Impressive.


Damn they ain't playing around with these batteries no more.


it'll hold up better then the S7 now.


Oh it will survive being sliced and stabbed but it will still catch fire and blow up in your hand.


Their video aren't entertaining at all imo.


Damn well i guess its my new shield when im getting stabbed.
