My galaxy s8+ started to overheat and screen would freeze then shut down, o2 shop said they would have to send it away, I took phone home and uninstalled the last app,(Cambridge news), which was acting weird, phone is working good as new, perhaps if anyone else has similar problem should give it a try

Certainly sounds like a rogue app. 

 

Perhaps let the App Developer know too of the bug 

 

To add a good way to track a rogue app is to put the phone in Safe Mode which will turn off all the downloaded apps and leaves the stock ones alone.


Current Phone >Samsung Z Fold³ 5G.

Previous Phone > Note 20 Ultra 5G SM-N9860.
