Cell phones are just like little pocket PC's. The only difference between a desktop PC and a cell phone is the fact that you are carrying around a volatile mix of chemicals which power the phone in the form of a battery. We learned just how volatile this part of a cell phone can be thanks to the Note 7. If you remember the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge actually included a heat sink. This is one feature the Note 7 missed and could have been the actual cause of the Note 7 defects.
LG has promised to doe their best to make sure that this does not happen with any of their future devices. LG will adopt new technologies and testing practices to be sure their devices remain safe. The LG G6 will include a "heat pipe" which will be used to conduct heat away from areas that would otherwise concentrate heat. LG will also utilize more rigorous battery test to learn how their devices will age when mistreated to hopefully prevent mishaps when customers use third party chargers. LG probably won't be the only OEM to take these sorts of measures. It's always best to learn from someone else's mistake.
