    I think neoandgeo are almost right. except it was his girlfriend who hit him with her high heeled shoe after finding out he was fooling around. :rofl3:

    Been repairing computers and peripherals a long time. There is nothing, nada, niente in an lcd screen that can explode.:r_c:

    I'm calling BS too .. if the screen cracked it wouldn't explode .. he probably broke it himself blamed it on the phone and his wife made a big deal about it and reported the story .. Motorola Is Gonna test it and say it was his fault and Sue the Guy for slander ..

    Anything that explodes usually pushes bits outward... All the glass looks in tact. And if there was enough force to cut his ear, you'd probably hear a LOT more than a "pop" and feel absolutely no pain.

    My theory, is that he might have just held it too hard on his ear in the right (read: wrong for his ear) spot and the glass cracked, cutting up his ear.

    Just took another look at the photo .. either the photo is inverted or this Guy is an idiot .. his left ear is bandaged .. but the blood spatter would only be that way on the phone if he cut his right ear!

    generally when a phone blows up its from the battery being overused. Most cases are when the phone is on the charger and the person is making a phone call. Problem is this explosion would send battery acid everywhere, leave the phone completely unrecognizable and the person using the phone would be dead or severely injured. The only thing i can think of is maybe a proximity sensor was wired wrong and was heating up or perhaps the same thing with the speaker and that caused the glass to shatter but this is gorilla glas, is pretty damn hard to break. I smell shenanigans and if it is this attempt to possibly make money off of this is almost as low as this guys IQ

    Steve Jobs warned us all... Holding a device the wrong way can have severe consequences.

    So you're a Houstonian too? I am out of the state right now but your reference to the Texas Hammer made me laugh.

    Either this guy is very unlucky or a complete idot to think lying about This would get him a settlement. It's as bad as those people that squirt water on the floor of a supermarket n fall trying to get some quick cash. Who knows... with everyone being broke n Xmas coming up sounds like a scam to me.

    Count me in with the imperfection in the glass crowd. That or he's lying. Either one is plausable. The "pop" he heard was more likely the glass cracking and if it was right next to his ear it would be sharp... so sharp that if he dragged it against his ear he likely would have sliced it.

    Somebody said something about LCDs and you're right under most conditions they wouldn't. Especially sitting on your desk... they are never stressed at all.. if he was putting stress on his phone it is more likely.

    I don't know. Half of me thinks its bs, the other half thinks its a piece of glass breaking.
