Aron Embry Needed Four Stiches After Motorola Droid 2 Exploded On His Ear

Aron Embry of Texas was using his Droid 2 phone when he heard a “pop” and his ear started to bleed. It turns out that his Droid 2 phone had exploded on his ear and the glass shattered outwards. Fortunately he did not have any hearing loss, but he did need four stitches to repair the damages. Aron’s family is considering a lawsuit. All I can say is that this is another reason why I would never buy the Droid 2. This is what Motorola had to say about the situation:

“Motorola’s priority is, and always has been the safety of our customers, and all Motorola products are designed, manufactured and tested to meet or exceed international and local standards for consumer safety. We will reach out to the consumer and investigate this thoroughly.”
