It burned a catastrophic mess.
In the real world, where people enjoy keeping all their fingers attached, these are highly undesirable qualities in a smartphone. But on the crime-ridden streets of Los Santos, the Note 7 makes a great if snarky replacement for the handy sticky bomb: plenty of mayhem, with the added benefit of plausible deniability.
Your move, Samsung.
