This phone is currently overheating in my hand as I type this. Being on the internet is to stressful for this hunk of trash.

Samsung as definitely lost a customer after this dog ***** phone.

@Den Frank: I'm sorry to hear that your Galaxy S21 is overheating. Overheating is to be expected in some instances, especially if you are using power intensive apps such as streaming services or sites. Have you received any notifications to indicate that the device is getting hot? In the meantime, please take a look at the link below to find some information and steps on how to reduce instances of overheating.

Not just the s21 mate, my s20 is constantly overheating to the point the sealent round the camera is allowing the back cover to come away, Samsung are less than helpful the engineer they sent out said it's a software throttling issue whatever that means and would be fixed in an update, well 3 updates later and it's still doing it, let me know if you solve this issue please.

@AndrewL don't gaslight me. I'm 30 I know how cell phones should and should not work. Being untouchably hot from a video call should not happen. Facebook messenger should not crash my phone. The inability to connect to wifi should not happen. Never in my life has a phone been so unreliable. I know it is your job to act like everything is user error, but the entire world isn't wrong. Samsung put out a horrible product and needs to admit it.

You think the S21 is a hunk of trash? You should thank the lord that you don't have the S22!


My advice comes from being a UK Samsung phone user.

Current Devices:
  • Samsung S21 Ultra 5G 256Gb > Model: SM-G998B/DS.
  • Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic > Model: SM-R890NZSAEUA.
  • Samsung Galaxy Buds+ > Model: SM-R175.

I haven't had the overheating issue, mine has been the decreasing ram.  Supposed to be 8g.  Currently at 3.5, after being at 4 for 3 months and Ive done every reset imaginable.  Samsung has lost my confidence for sure.  JUNK
