Manolo Rodriguez isn't happy with his Galaxy S4 after he heard it sizzling in his chest pocket, before it exploded. He said: "I tried to reach for the phone and pull it out, but it was too hot. So I retracted my hand, closed the zipper and then unzipped the center one so I could get my jacket off."

Rodriguez was in a Goodwill store at the time, where he threw it to the floor. The Galaxy S4 ended up burning right through his jacket, getting so hot that it singed the floor and Rodriguez's fingertips. He added: "If I had been talking on the phone or something, it could have exploded in my face. It could have been worse."

 

Rodriguez has hired an attorney, where he hopes to see Samsung recall the 20 million+ Galaxy S4's in the wild. While he wants, Rodriguez purchased himself an HTC One.
