After playing 25 minutes with a G2 I got a message that the brightness level was going to be automatically reduced to 90% from 100% due to overheating.
This was by just doing basic stuff like web browsing, 2 short YouTube videos, messaging, etc. No gaming at all.
How can the phone overheat just by doing basic stuff?
This reminds me about the overheating issue with the G Pad 8.3 too. LG said they didn't include the Snapdragon 800 due to overheating, and opted instead for the 600.
Who else has experienced the overheating issue? Please explain what where you doing.
I only experienced this when playing Dead Trigger 2 with the Ultra Graphics mod (most demanding game at the moment) and that was after like 15 minutes... it seems for you though that there is a slight problem with your phone, was it charging when doing this?
mine too heating very quickly,,dont know y,,but facing problem every time,,brightness in 40,when play plants vs zombies 10mins ,its heating too much,,temperature of phone shows 50 degrees C
I've not experienced any overheating issues on my phone. It's really getting warm when it's charging and I can imagine that there will be some trouble if you charge your phone and are working with a very CPU demanding app.
Many usersdon’t see any particular reason to change out the stock firmware … more
