We wrote about the problem that some Samsung Galaxy Tab S models have right here and we awaited Samsung’s reaction, that swiftly came today. I’ll remind you that some of the Tab S units are overheating and apparently causing the back of the case to deform.

While Samsung does admit to the overheating thing, they say the deformed cases don’t have anything to do with the higher temperatures. There is actual proof of the deformed case, as shown in the pictures from the article mentioned above. The device’s shell seems to be out of shape and creates slightly bubbly areas at the surface. Sammy is clever enough to mention that contrary to what the media is saying, the deformation isn’t heat-related.

“Defective back covers” is the only flaw they admit to in this case and the overheating of the CPU is not to blame. They also advise customers with problems to go to the nearest Samsung Electronics customer service center. Finally, the South Koreans say that the problem is already fixed and future units won’t face this issue. We can’t help but wonder: what IS causing the deformation if not the heat? It’s very important because the Tab S models are probably the best tablets that Samsung has ever released and they’re potential huge hits.

    They are not a first attempt, with overheating issues. S4 exploding batteries? First lot was a big problem, they fixed it after, but many encountered issues.
    They are spreading BS with “defective covers”, every phone, tablet on this planet has a passive cooled CPU that gets hot under certain conditions. Plastic is the worst heat spreader, even iPad is getting hot, remember? But it’s made of aluminum and the heat goes away very fast. Even worse, plastic is deforming, metal is “cold” if Samsung say, but very good at heat dissipation. It’s not “cold” for nothing, right? :))

    I have both the Tab-S 8.4 and the 10.5. The are used daily. Both have Exnos processors.
    I have had no deformation of the tablet back.

    I would take your term “overheating” to mean the Tab-S tablet is operating beyond it’s engineered temperature specifications. Otherwise your claim that the Tab-S line is overheating is just spreading rumors, and I would think Tablet-News is at risk for contributing to false accusations which are damaging Samsung’s business. So what are the engineering specs and at what temperatures are the Tab-S components running, compared to these specs?

    Also did Samsung say their tablet was overheating, but that was not the cause of the deformation? This is the way you are reporting Samsung’s response. That seems like a misrepresentation of what Samsung said.

    It’s sad that Samsung pays people to spread lies and I am referring to you, not Tablet News. Samsung paid students and people to denigrate HTC, are you among them?
    If you have no problem, it doesn’t mean that others don’t. Remember this before posting utter crap next time.

    So, your primary message is that you think there are 2 classes of Homo Sapiens?
    1. Students
    2. People

    Also, thank you for noticing my denigration of HTC. Samsung pays me a fortune to do it in such a subtle manner that only a few rare individuals like yourself could notice the subliminal message.

  • DeianStancu

    Your ironic comment does not cut it.
    Don’t try to be smarter than you look, it does not suit you. I did’t say that you receive money, just implied that there are cases like this.
    Try harder next time.

    Actually that is not a picture of me. It is just a blank icon. By contrast, your icon is an actual picture. Hope that helps you a bit.

  • DeianStancu

    It did. I am writing to someone that cowardly hides behind a blank photo. And don’t judge people by the way they look, that makes you a racist and chauvinist. 🙂
    To be on subject, it doesn’t mean that if you haven’t got the heating problem, others don’t. Every major manufacturer has problems with their units per lot. It’s called quality check. For profit, they tend to sell every crap that passes or doesn’t pass the control check.

    So sorry, I thought you were also hiding behind a teddy bear picture. But if that is the case, you would also be declaring yourself as a cowardly racist chauvinist! Are you saying that is your actual photo? In that case, I think you look every bit as intelligent as your photo. For the record, I have no racist thoughts toward teddy bears, you are a fine bunch of mammals. Also, I cannot tell from your photo if you are a male or female teddy bear, so I guess that kinda rules out your chauvinist problem also.

    To be on subject, I am so glad you have such expertise regarding the inner workings of major corporations. Your insight makes a lot of sense that corporations can improve their competitiveness, branding, and profitability, by manufacturing and selling crap that does not pass control checks. The more crap they can produce, the higher their profits!

    While I am bullish by nature on technology companies, I can understand why you are bearish.

    I also admire the way you were able to decipher my subliminal message where I stated other Tab-S owners don’t have a heating problem. And I thought I was just suggesting responsible reporting by Tablet-News, and asking them to produce facts. Shame on me!
