Why does my screen go black when the phone is too cold?
This started back in November, My phone would get too cold and would have a flickering screen. I tried many factory resets but no such luck. I switched to another phone for a while but am back to the S7. If the phone temperature is too cold the phone screen goes completely black and I can’t see. I literally have to place my phone a heater in order for the screen to light back up. Everything else is still functional I just can see what I am doing when the phones internal temperature is too cold. (was in the 60’s this week and it still was too cold or the screen to work)
What can I replace for this to work?
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
Mine does it too. It started when I left it in cold. It dinner and flickered two thirds at bottom. Top fine. Then yesterday it goes to black two thirds bottom. I remember where the slide buttons are so I can answer it. The hair dryer heats it and I can use it for 2 minutes. There should be a recall. No more Samsung for me. It's from China anyway
@thefreemans2010 I switched to pixel after all this

My S7 is doing the same. When the battery/phone temperature is below 32 centigrade, 2/3 of the bottom screen goes black (after flickering for a minute).
I suspect this is something related to the screen flex not doing right contact, but I could not open this son of a glitch yet....it's too difficult without the proper tools !!
Interesting Tip: In developer mode, you can enable a second screen simulator, kind helps to have an overall view of the screen, and still use some functions.
Another thing that helped me is to cast my screen to my Chromecast.
I have tried the solutions below like bending the phone and enabling hardware overlays...no luck at all.
I would appreciate it if you write me down when you find any alternate solution.

My Samsung S7 display first started to flicker, around 1 year after I bought it. It was outside, with a temperature probably around 10-15 degrees (Celsius). Reducing the screen luminosity did the trick for some time. But actually the problem slowly got worse and worse, over the next 2 years. Then, a couple of weeks ago (age 3 years), the lower third part of the display totally turned black. Maybe one week later, around the second third (in the middle of the display) also started to flicker and become darker and black. Now only the top 2cm area is working normally. I'm going to try to have my phone opened and maybe I'll try to get a new AMOLED display. I'll report about it later, here.
