Pokemon Go and the Samsung S20 Ultra

While this is primarily a Niantic issue, perhaps a gentle 'nudge' from Samsung might get their attention. All Samsung Galaxy Store versions of PoGo starting with 0.170.0 and subsequent updates 0.171.1 and 0.171.2 will freeze a few seconds after starting the game, from various Forum Threads around it seems to be just the S20 Ultra has this issue, i also have an S8+ and i even resurrected an old S7 Flat to test it and all updates are fine on them, luckily a forced update hasn't happened yet but when it comes looks like S20 Ultra players will be locked out, just to point out this also happens on the Google Play Store versions so ball is in Niantic's court.

Finally, a working version and got it direct from the Galaxy Store, if you also need the Google Play Store version of 0.173.2 you can sideload the .apk by downloading it from here

Ive had no further problems with the S20+ or Ultra, heating seems to be extremely minimal compared to the S8,9 and 10 that I and my girlfriend have lying around. Which was indeed problematic on those phones but right now, it never gets hotter than a comfortable hand warming temperature which honestly, I really like. This is even though I run games on it afk farming day and night at max graphics and 120 fps, full cpu usage.

I havent had any chrome problem nor did I encounter any tiktok problems, hotspot hasnt had any problems either for me but ive used it only for about 3 or 4 hours total, so not much that I can base an opinion on there.

 

Thinking about it, that might be because I'm using the S20 Ultra myself and my gf uses the S20+ which are larger and have more heat dissipation due to the size and design differences. But I can say with quite some confidence that the + and Ultra versions are fine.

Will you require some niantic compensation? for what we lost?

Note20 Users: Download the newest update from the Galaxy Store guys! We've had reports that after downloading that update everything is working as it should!
