The only difference between a grenade and a Smartphone is that while you know when the former would burst, you will not have any idea about when the latter would burn into flames. Lately, Samsung Galaxy Note 7, Xiamoi Mi 4i, OnePlus One grabbed headlines due to its explosions. The latest gadget to get added in the list is a Reliance Jio Smartphone.
