    Have anyone experienced getting headaches from the S20 Ultra or any of the S20 line of devices?

    I had mine since launch and all of a sudden started experiencing minor headaches. But today, I got a really bad one...to the point where I had to go lay down.

    I'm assuming it may have something to do with eye strain, but I'm not sure.

    Just wondering if anyone else experienced this before.

    Nah..not Covid19 ....

    Its probably cause I'm always on the phone messing around with it ..lol. I usually run with auto brightness turned on. But today, I turned it off and manually turned the brightness up some and it definitely gets bright. I read a few people turn auto brightness off and turn their brightness up. So i decided to give that a try and is probably the reason I got these headaches today.

    There's a blue light filter in display settings that may help. It's mostly designed for next night time but it may help during the day also.S20 Ultra ... headaches?-screenshot_20200329-082946_settings.jpeg

    Could be a number of reasons and have seen posts like this with s8, 9, 10 that effects certain people. PWM?

    Thanks for the read. My wife is a a nurse and She read the article with me. She said that it did make sense. Especially in my case because I do have sensitive eyes and eye strain.

    It's strange too because yesterday I was on the phone a few times, scrolling through twitter, emails etc and the screen did flicker a few times. In fact, I turned on the video recorder app on to record it. I thought it was defect with the phone, so I was going to exchange it for a different Ultra. But now, I may have to get something different all together.

    I am not a doctor, but I think the headaches you are experiencing may be due to other situations, in addition to potential eye strain from using your phone. I get eye strain headaches sometimes too. Frustrating, for sure!

    Is it raining a lot where you are? I get headaches when the barometric pressure drops.

    If you are stressed, you may experience headaches.

    If you are dehydrated or hungry, you may get headaches as well (this happens to me often).

    I guess what I'm trying to say is, correlation does not equal causation. It may not be your new phone, specifically - it could be other things. We are living in very stressful times right now - getting headaches and feeling overwhelmed are definitely a part of that.

    Keep well, drink water, and take a breath. If you need anything, we are here.

    Thank you for your advise. A lot of things can bring a headache on for sure. However, the only thing that has changed with my daily activity is my new phone. Which I have been on a lot, to say the least.

    Today I have turned on 6 features within the Settings app that may be able to help me with this situation. I'm also going to limit my use of being on the phone a lot today as well and see if that helps.

    Indeed, stress is my biggest headache initiator. I'll get this pain from my left trap up my neck to the back of my head. I've had such stressful days combined with that pain where I will just have to disappear for a while.

    I was gonna ask what refresh rate you were using and whether you tried long term testing with both rates. Let me know if it helped.

    Thanks everyone. I am staying hydrated and I'm doing good so far.

    I turned the display down, set the refresh rate to 60mhz and turned on the blue light filter and so far so good. I'm a officer so I'm getting ready to head into work for a 12hr shift. So hopefully one of those headaches don't sneak up on me.

    Also location could have something to do with it. I live in Georgia, and the pollen has really gone nuts the past several days. No matter how much Claritin I take I just have a constant headache b/c of seasonal allergies right now. Add that in with potential eye strain, and it's a recipe for headaches.

    Absolutely, I live in AZ and the weather is shifting and we have had a lot of rain. Add that to sleeping with the windows open at night now have screwed my sinuses up bad. I take Zertec and Sudafed daily and still fighting it.

    We had a mild winter this year with much more rain than normal. I think that's driven things into overdrive lately. Add that to already having all the bugs and such that come from mild winters + allergy season=a grumpy bear of a man. LOL

    That is a very good point. I feel like I am starting to get seasonal allergies and have had sneezing issues for the past week. You are totally right that headaches could also be from having the pain and stuffiness that comes with seasonal allergies.
