Hi guys, Assalamu Alaikum,
Hope y'all doing very well.
It is to get y'all attention on a very serious matter. If you are using Samsung flagship models pre S21, you should be careful. Here's why;
I have been a user of S20FE for about 1.5 yrs (Since November 2021). I had bought this phone brand new but when I started using it, it showed some serious performance issue i.e. overheating (even on light use, but exponentially fast on camera usage), lag in Call of Duty mobile, quick battery drain, etc. Thinking that I have bought an FE phone, I decided to compromise. 
But recently, things have gone worse as my device's battery that has been heating up to 50°C, started swelling. It may cause fire or explosion. I went to the internet and found it wasn't the case with just me, lots and lots of people had swollen phones and a YouTuber claimed that every Samsung phone inflates in 3 years period. It is indeed an alarming matter. One may be injured or even die if the battery explodes, also one can lose one's valuable data and settings.

So if you are using any if the devices mentioned in the start, you should keep a check if you phone shows these issues too.
If you find swollen battery, get it replaced or change the device immediately. 

My visit to their service center is tomorrow, wish me luck🤞
Either battery replacement or device replacement (but not any Samsung again, sorry).

Bro, pakistan k mostly cities mai temperature 49 degrees tak chala jata hai easily summer mai. Jis ka matlab hai k phone bagair use kiye b issi temperature pe hoga or jesy he use karo ge to wo 10 to 15 degrees garam ho jaega. To iss mai tension wali baat nahi hai. Mera s20 5G 70 degrees pe chala jata tha easily jo k meny 2.5 years+ use kiya or kuch b ni hua

Bro thanks for info, but mera phone ab side se khulne lga hy, which I think is dangerous.
Also internet pr FE versions ke ilawa kisi S20 ki evidence nhi mili.

Plus, jb bahr ka temperature<20 hota tha mera phone easily 40+ tk chla jata tha.

And I guess apke phone me SD865 chipset hy but meray me Exynos990 hy, buht hi fazool lga mujhay.

So basically bro you haven't replaced battery? So how's the heating issue on charging and how about discharge time?
