Hi i wonder if anyone who has received their S20 has experienced some overheating? I upgraded from my S9 which occasionally was hot during charging and heavg usage whereas the S20 is getting really hot from normal usage like phone calls or using the phone for longer than 10 mimutes and no where near the heavy usage the S9 went through. Any ideas anyone?? Thanks in advance.
what the F efffing is going on with this phone
mine starts to heat up about 5min into using it
let me confirm - i dont use games, and the phone is at 60zh qHD set up/optimised battery
after 5min of checking apps (like email, facebook instagram) it starts to heat up FAST - the worst of the heat (mind you i have a cover so that could also be why) feels like on the front side (screen) upper left - i believe that is where the chip is
the heat doesnt go down until 5 min after i stop using the phone - during the time the phone gets hot, the battery drains at 1% every 2-3 min
may update didnt make any difference probably because it wasnt more than a security update
I mean honestly this is messed up - think about battery life over time - if its constantly submitted to such high temp
also i am not exagerating when i say the phone is so hot you cannot hold it or put it in your pocket afterwards
WHAT IS CAUSING THIS ISSUE????
is it software - i doubt - i fear is hardware
i read somewhere that is because exynos/mali setup isnt right
did no one at samsung bother to *****ing check these things before releasing millions of phones into the wild
do they not care at all if they start exploding again???? im sure is only a matter of time before they do - i wonder if THEN they will acknoledge this issue???
they have also locked super fast charging - basically once the phone heats up (so quite quickly) the display drops back to 60 and the super fast charging gets locked to fast charging - so 2 MAIN features - stop working
I didnt pay £1000 for this - for limited usage, burning my hands, cant put the phone to my ears etc
I also didnt pay to have samsung burry his head in the sand about it and act like this is not them or the phone when millions are facing the same issue
is there NO ONE here that can shed light into WTF is going on and how is this going to be fixed - if it will
I cannot see my self using this phone for 12mo in these conditions, i also cannot return it nor sell it - so am in a really bad spot like many here are - SAMSUNG what are you doing about it???????
i changed the battery modes but it didnt made much of a difference - at the loss of other functionality
i cannot exchange it as samsung doesnt recognise this as an issue
