    I got it on day 1, 12th of March IIRC. Had problems right away but put it down to early firmware. Hoping it would be resolved with updates. It wasn't. It got worse if anything. Now three different firmwares in and still faulty.

    Ok have you tried to clear the cache reboot the phone wipe it ie set it to factory defaults. then reboot the phone. then set it up and do nto install anything on there bar the bare min ie a few contacts and perhaps email client. see how that goes if it still does it have you also tried to reinstall the latest firmware or an older one ?.

    Hope it gets fixed soon.

    Torn between getting an s20+ or an ultra or waiting in a note 20!

    I've got a £1000 pc world voucher through wifes work tech scheme, dont know whether to add to it for the ultra or not.

    I'm currently on an A10 after breaking my s8 plus 6 months ago. It's horrible and I need to upgrade just dont know what to do.

    Anyone have an issue on calls sometimes where they can hear their own voice through the speaker? It's driving me mad when it happens. It's not just a normal echo either, the phone is actually playing my voice back to me louder than the person I'm speaking to!

    Andy, is your phone an S20 Ultra and is it sim free?
    I've got a S20 Ultra sim free direct from Samsung, I've just checked but there doesn't seem to be any updates available.
