I see some posts with new S21 series phone overheating and such, but I have something opposite. My phone reports itself as overheating when it is not overheating at all.
My test is to run two games multi-window at the same time. Phone starts to report itself overheating at about 43°C CPU temperature. When I touch the phone, it is not hot at all and it feels like the same temperature. When overheating is reported, multi-window gets closed.
I have my old S10e on the side. For this phone, it starts reporting overheating at more than 60°C degrees temperature. The threshold temperature is very obvious between those phones while comparing side by side.
What I also tried:
I let my phone sitting in the fridge for a few minutes and cooled it down to ~10°C. After that, it takes significantly longer for it to overheat. The temperature still seems to be about 43°C.
Is this supposed to be happening? What is the threshold of overheating? It does not really make sense when my phone overheats at about forty degrees Celsius.
