Tech YouTubers Are Finding Expanded Batteries in Their Libraries of Samsung Smartphones

Arun Maini, known on YouTube as “Mrwhosetheboss”, has a library of dozens of devices he has tested, from all manufacturers. But he noticed the batteries in his Samsung phones — and only his Samsung phones — were dangerously expanding, sometimes in phones he received less than two years ago. In discussions with other YouTube personalities, he discovered he was not the only one seeing problems with Samsung devices specifically or, at least, disproportionately.

While he is still waiting for results from Samsung’s internal investigation — the company confiscated some of his affected devices — his video on the topic is worth watching.
