Some Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge owners have claimed that the camera lens on their device is shattering without any kind of impact."The camera glass shattered like a miniature bullet hole," the owner of a newly purchased Galaxy S7, identified only as Sean, told the Consumerist.Samsung has not acknowledged the issue so far even though some reports of the issue date back to April on Samsung Forums.In Sean's case, they reportedly refused to give him a replacement claiming that he had caused the physical damage to the phone.While a logical explanation for the incidents could be some kind of external stress on the glass, most users say the shattering occurs on the inner part of the lens and not the outer.In addition, many users who experienced the problem say their S7/S7Edge was inside a protective case and they had not dropped the phone even once.

After resisting smartphones for years, Nintendo has adapted Super Mario for the iPhone.As recently as five years ago, Nintendo s late president, Satoru Iwata, was adamant that Super Mario would never make the leap to smartphones.Before he died, Iwata was forced to acknowledge that the world had changed, and that Nintendo, a company founded in 1889 to make playing cards, must again change with it.In January of 2014, faced with a predicted two-hundred-and-forty-million-dollar annual loss for the company, Iwata asked Mario s creator, Shigeru Miyamoto, to meet with the character s other three aging custodians—Takashi Tezuka, Toshihiko Nakago, and the composer Koji Kondo—to explore how Mario might be adapted for the miniature screen.The resulting game, Super Mario Run, came out on Thursday for the iPhone.As its name implies, it is an auto-runner, a design tradition popularized on smartphones in which the character moves through the environment without provocation, the player s only real role being to tap the screen to trigger an obstacle-leaping jump.
