My S5 battery exploded last night - it set my purse on fire and I am extemely shaken. While the phone is a few years old I had never had an issued with it prior to this. Fortnately even though I was driving (taking my 14 old dog to the ER VET) I was able to pull over and get the phone out before everything burned.
Thank GOD this happened while I was near the phone and not during the night when it very well could have started a house fire. I had heard of this happening but never thought it would be me.
This isn't common go happen with the GALAXY S5 if this happens it could be that the heat in your car may have contributed to the factor and since this is the 1st report of this happening, however another factor could be overcharging
