Long time HardOCP reader, Eric Crowley of Stockton, California, had a dangerous moment with his Samsung Note 8 this morning. His daughter has been making good grades at school so she was awarded with a new pair of earrings. Eric was taking a couple of pictures with his Samsung Note 8 so he could show his daughter how those looked on her. On snapping his third picture, he heard pop similar to what popping shipping bubble sheet sounds like. As you can see below, the glass cover over the Note 8's rear facing cameras "exploded" outward onto this daughter. The explosion was akin to an old fashioned flash bulb! Eric explained she had glass residue on her that was of a "dusty shiny particle" consistency from her cheek back to her ear. Thankfully none of the glass particles got into her eyes, but to be on the safe side due to the size of the tiny fragments he had her eyes irrigated just in case. He said she is fine and not injured, thankfully. Erik has been using his Note 8 for about 7 months, was at 98% charge, and previously undamaged. Image of the glass on the news page. Looking around the net, it does not seem to be terribly common, but some other instances of "self breaking glass" on the Note 8 are out there. Something to keep in mind before you go stuffing your camera in someone's face. Thanks for sharing Erik, and we are glad you daughter is OK. We are happy about her grades as well. And having a good dad supporting that achievement. Just don't try to blind her with your camera next time!
