Guys,
I bought mine(exynos) 2 weeks ago. Battery feels like average(5-6 hrs sot) and the phone heats even during charging(25w samsung adapter). Any tips would be appriciated. Im also looking for some must have apps to make the most out of the phone(like cpu monitoring apps and others). Thank you!

Heating of the phone while charging is a bigger issue with samsung.
I dont know what technology they are using but it is inferior to what other manufacturers are using.

I have used oneplus in the past and with their dash charge i could easily charge my phone at 30w , but the best part was the phone did not used to heat up at all.
Even while using the phone the charger used to provide constant 25-30w..

With samsung as long as the phone is cool and screen turned off , you will be able to get 25w, but if you start using your phone or it heats up a bit, it will drop to 10w .

Touch wood
I have no such issues
My phone can charge at super fast mode while playing asphalt 9 for long time.

It will show super fast , but the actual delivery of current is really slow.

I have tested it my self with the battery monitor app.

You can do that as well.
5500ma - 25w

Charging current drops down to 1600-1700 ma while you use the phone.


Alternatively you can take a note of the time while charging . Ideally it should charge 1.5% every minute at 25w.

While gaming it would charge 5% in more than 10 mins

Some people are sensitive to flickering from OLED screens, because of PWM. You can google it, it's a pretty well established problem.

It can happen after prolonged use (example - hours of non stop gaming) of digital screens (smartphones, tablets, PCs etc.). If it's unusual eyestrain with nausea or giddiness then get your orthoptic evaluation done.

Florida unfortunately.
Welcome back to the S21U. Hope you don't have the pink tint issues on the new one.

Just out of curiosity, what made you change your mind and buy the S21U again?

Truth be told I got bored of the note 20 ultra. Plus it wasn't as comfortable to hold on the hand as the s21u.
The pink issue isn't an issue. Originally it was color shift, but it's a bit better now. Thanks for asking.

To have less weight and thickness than the cases, applied gadgetshieldz skin and feels like a good one. Wish it had some more grip.

The SIDE-skin(that covers the frame) wasn't properly aligned with speaker grill, charging port, volume rocker etc. Gadgetshieldz provided no support(asked for re-shipment+handling charges costing same as buying newly from the site) when requested for a replacement. So had to buy again.
