Hi All,
Are your Exynos Note 20 Ultras getting hot? From my use, light browsing to watching videos or light gaming the screen gets very warm and the rear is hot. Please let me know.

Yes, really disappointed with this so far. Mines getting pretty toasty just sat doing nothing causing the screen to be dim all the time.. nothing running in the background

My second day with it, I can literally watch the battery percentage go down... barely touched it today as have been pretty busy and was down to 19% at 17:00..

Charged it to full again, took offcharger around 20:15... again barely used it this evening, a few posts on here, bit of YouTube...its already down to 68%.

Battery usage shows 3 hours 44 minutes for the day.

Can't be right..

Mine gets very hot and the battery life is a joke. It's going back after the weekend unless this is some weird fluke which fixes itself after a few charge cycles

On the T-mo version. Mine gets hot and won't charge with it doing nothing. Got it today, and had on the charger for a couple hours. Never fully charged thanks to this stupid heat issue. Screen is off and it's multitudes hotter than my 10 plus being used. Obnoxious.

Nope, mine isn't getting hot at all through normally or fairly heavy use.
What about the battery life?

Exynos man, not Snapdragon.

People should only be concerned about this after several days of use.

Judging battery and temperature on a brand new device in the first 1 or 2 days is pointless.

After watching many reviews (of the Exynos model) I haven't heard anyone voicing this as a concern.

It got a bit warm (not terribly hot though) on the 1st day when it was still downloading apps, etc. Last 2 days have been good..no heat even on watching videos, video calls, occasional snaps. See my usage in the attachment. This was on the 2nd charge cycle and phone at 120hz (adaptive) and on wifi all the time.
(UK exynos version)
