How hot does your Galaxy S8 get while it's charging?
Following the Galaxy Note 7 debacle, it seems admittedly easy to cry wolf when any Samsung smartphone becomes even a little warm. But the way forum user, amyf27, describes how hot their Galaxy S8+ got while charging via a USB-C adapter, it's hard not to be a little curious.
One user noted that the cause for all this might be due to Samsung's apparent use of QuickCharge 2.0, which is less efficient than later versions and causes more heat to build up.
Of course, it's possible that the reason this user's Galaxy S8+ is feeling hot is that it is physically hot outside. We're nearing summertime, after all, and as the weather increases in heat, so will the electronics around us. Here's your PSA to always use the charger that comes inside the box with your device.
What about you? Have you tried checking the Galaxy S8 or S8+ with an app like CPU-Z (opens in new tab), which offers a readout of your device temperature?

I guess the Earth's longevity isn't a valuable enough end game.
I have used a variety of chargers, Samsung adaptive chargers, QC 3.0 chargers and even my MacBook Pro charger but I have not noticed my phone get unreasonably hot
So 104 is around normal
S8 is a ergonomical nightmare and they sell this defective device for a premium.
Thoes edges are nothing but a demerit.
