I have a galaxy A71 and a Samsung 8" tablet purchased in 2021. When I use either device, the hand I hold it in breaks out the next day with a very itchy and painful red rash. I hold the phone only with my fingertips, yet my whole hand breaks out. This is not contact dermatitis but some form of radiation that leaks out of the back of both items and causes my whole hand to breakout. To use either the phone or the tablet, I have had to place each in a shallow box wrapped in aluminum foil to curtail the radiation out of the back of each. Both items are radiating something and, looking at other community posts, I'm not the only one experiencing something like this. I am now scared to buy another Samsung product. BTW: my former phone was an S4 and I had no problems at all.
