Samsung says the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 does not overheat, but has a defective back cover
About a week ago, there were some troubling news concerning the Exynos-equipped Galaxy Tab S 8.4. A user from Russia claimed that whilst playing a 3D game, the slate would go very hot. So hot that it would eventually warp its plastic back cover.
Similar reports have surfaced on tech forums since, and Samsung has now announced that it's aware of the problem. However, according to Sammy, the super-thin device is not having overheating issues, rather, the warping of the plastic is caused by a defect in a limited number of back covers. Samsung claims it has dealt with the issue and urges anyone who owns one such lemon to go ahead and contact their nearest Samsung Electronics customer service center. We assume that means you'd get a new back cover, rather than a new tablet.
Do you own a Galaxy Tab S 8.4? Any heat troubles so far?
