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.
I'm having the same issue, S20 5G variant. I have 120hz on and battery on Optimized yet the phone seems to be hot even with very little use.
Do I really need to get a replacement?
I just upgraded to this device from an iPhone 11 pro, my first move to android, so I don't know if this is normal of Galaxy phones?
after a complete reset without using samsung smart switch (some said it could cause battery drain) , and a week use (battery optimiser completed usage pattern learning) , i have 4:30 SOT with 27hours between 2 charges. The device is running warm as soon as i use youtube or samsung browser. Should i get a replacement or i got fu...by a 1300€ exynos ??
UK here. got the unit yesterday directly from Samsung.
Glad to say no issues with overheating at all. Used it practically all day yesterday from point of delivery + charging (1pm-2pm ish) until about 11pm getting it setup the way I want as I never do backup>restore especially on device or major release upgrades.
Battery lasted from 2pm (100%) until 12:30pm today (3%)
But thats good going given the amount of screen-time yesterday, installation of apps etc wifi, bluetooth on and on the 120hz + random testing camera and so on.
Today all day its been fine too
Same Problem with my S20 4G.
IT gets very warm even in normal use (literally just laying there, WiFi and GPS off).
It also loses a lot of battery. Especially from 100% to 95% (only 10 Minutes screentime).
What should i do?
Phone Was bought on March, 10th directly from samsung.
Thank you guys
I have the same problem! I am on Facebook just to read an see video's and the temperature of the cpu is 56 to 60 degrees of Celsius!!!! Would say that Samsung replace the phon an the new one is ok;;
I have a S20+ to replace my S20 Ultra. The Plus definitely overheats whereas the Ultra just got warm. I think it's the smaller enclosure that's causing it (plus an overheating CPU obviously).
Would be interested if anybody's phone is overheating when NOT running:
1. camera app for a few minutes
2. a graphically demanding game
3. 120Hz screen refresh
I don't believe my S20+ to be unusual, from other stories I've read, that when taking photo's it overheats.
What we don't want is to Samsung just to thottle the CPU further to get around this. It's either bad hardware (990 seems not fit for purpose) or very bad code. Either way, Samsung, give us an ETA for resolution please.
So as all of you have, i recently got the s20 Exynos version. The phone operates fine. However, i find it overheating when I do things like Whatsapp Video call. There was also a point when i was setting up Google Assisstant and it was overheating - the app eventually stopped working properly and i restarted the phone and it was fine after. The whatsapp video call overheating still persists though.
I don't know what to think of it, any advice will extremely appreciated.
I got my s20 (5g) two days back and just noticed that phone is heating during whatsapp video call and also when i use camera for just about 5-10 minutes. I'm not sure if its generic or specific to my device, thinking about replacement 😞
my samsung s20 5g. over heating badly needed to be restarted multiple times.
today was bad needed to restart 7 times throughout the day, was in airconditioned room all day.
interenet now played up and back of phone has now cracked from the left side, and getting worse.
im guessing the battery is expanding becuase phone is turned off and is still cracking, i dont know what to do
Make sure to keep everything on record - A video if possible to prove the damage was not accidental. Also, if you could share some pictures, would like to see what you are facing
