samsung s8 screen become discoloured and the phone becomes hot

First Poster

I have my s8 for almost 2 years but recently, the screen started to discoloured (become faded and you can a lot of horizontal lines unless you put the max brightness) and the device will become hot. I need to switch the phone off and let it cool down but after several hours, the screen will become discoloured and hot again. 


i tried putting it in recovery mode and soft reset but it doesnt seem to be working. does it mean that something is wrong with the hardware?

Your best course of action I feel would be to take the phone to a Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Centre.


Assuming it's not been dropped or had water damage.

My Galaxy S8 started to become hot after I installed a VPN app which also zapped my battery. I uninstalled the VPN app and phone is back to normal. My screen does dim occasionally for no reason for which I have to restart the phone to sort it.
