There's a number of reasons a phone will get hot.

We saw quite a few posts about it during beta1, with less during beta2 ... and with beta3, I don't recall any issues. (mine never got hot during the whole beta period)

It could be a rogue app, or maybe you've got the phone configured aggressively.

Have you booted into Recovery to do a Wipe Cache Partition.

===============
If not:

Press and hold Side key until you see Power Off - select it to power off the phone.

Now, off to the Maintenance (Recovery) screen:

Press and HOLD the Volume Up key, and while holding, press and HOLD the Side key.

When the Samsung splash screen appears, release both keys. Within a few seconds, you'll see the Maintenance screen, with a number of menu options.

Use the Volume Down key to highlight Wipe Cache Partition. Press Side key, select "Yes".

Now, Use Volume key to highlight "Repair Apps" (should be last menu option). Use Side key to select it.

The phone will automagically restart. Let the phone settle down for a couple of minutes.

... now check on battery after 5-10 mins

Interesting.

I also participate in the "s21" (not beta) forum. Someone asked about "normal" phone temperatures, a couple days ago

So I did a test. Overall, my "camera / editing / post to YouTube" test showed the phone to run slightly cooler than other phone activities.
