According to a report by GizmoChina, an iPhone 7 Plus exploded when it hit the ground. 

The impact, after a 1.6 foot fall, reportedly caused the phone's battery to catch fire, and the iPhone began vibrating and emitting smoke. The phone's display completely detached, and was so damaged it doesn't seem repairable.
