Same here, the Feb update didn't make any significant difference, it still gets fairly hot when using video camera, the update actually made my phone less smooth, it now stutter a bit, the start up is also a tad slower now. I'm returning it today!

Samsung just told me "We are unaware of any issue related to this".....despite many people reporting it on forums and to them directly

I can confirm this issue still exists.

There are no apps under Battery & Device care as I have not opened any apps.

  • Temperature : 29.0 C.
  • Put phone on samsung 9watt wireless pad. Good Charging speed.
  • Watch after 15 min. Temp will be between 37.0 C - 40.0 C
  • Charging speed reduces to extreme slow and takes double time to full charge.

Another scenario.

  1. Pick phone and do normal browsing on google.
  2. After 15 min temperature will be above 37.0 C

Is it because S21 has plastic back so heat is absorbed rather than dissipation?
