Some Galaxy S20 series owners are luckier than others. A Reddit user using the handle bananabanana9876 said: “Mine is still just over a month old so it’s still under warranty. I took it (to a) Samsung service store and they said they didn’t have a replacement part available so they would give me a full refund. I’m lucky (or unlucky) I guess.” The same Reddit subscriber suggested Galaxy S20 users not to install software updates on their Galaxy S20 phones.
He adds: “I’m not sure what to do with this junk Exynos 990 heating phone now. At least the screen was good, but now this phone has no value. Samsung should address this issue.”
Software updates for the Galaxy S20 range seem to have triggered this issue
Messages posted as recently as last Tuesday, April 12th, will appear on the Samsung Community Board. And at least one user posted that their phone has two vertical lines on their phone. He also states that the problem started after a software update (which appears to be a similar factor found in many posts) and that a factory reset didn’t help, which must be alarming for those hoping for a solution to this problem.
A vertical green line appeared on the display of some Galaxy S20 series phones
One of our loyal readers using the name phone head, posted a comment on our story from last July, which we mentioned earlier in this article. He wrote just four days ago that a vertical line appeared on the left side of his Galaxy S20+ screen. He also had a problem with the screen of his Galaxy Note 9 after a software update.
He said that he was giving up his Galaxy S21 Ultra and that he would no longer be involved with any Samsung device. So far there has been no response from Samsung and when we hear from the company we will forward the response to you.
