Default INTERESTED in Z2 please help

Hi there I'm really liking this device and I want to buy it but it read about this overheating camera issue, reviews don't mention anything about it but many people complain.. I do live in a hot County where temperatures are around 40 C in the summer! I don't mind if it's a problem with 4k only, but if the camera force-closes when just taking pictures then yes!
Please Help
Thanks

Honest answer, I live in Holland it is around 15 degrees Celsius and it shuts down on 4k and on ar video mode fast, and with pictures after 15 minutes or so.

I've had Camera shutdown using 4K and Panorama Sweep feature.
The camera was ON for a whole of 5 to 6 minutes and while taking the panaroma shot, it shutdown.
Haven't tried 1080p recording.

It seems that it depends on what phone you get. If you get a lemon, you are scr***d and if you get a decent one, you should be fine.

I was afraid that this phone is plagued with this overheating problem and while it is one of the "hottest" I have ever had, mine is under control. I did not manage to overheat it with normal usage of camera/hd video, but surely enough I would be able to overheat it with AR mode or 4k video.

Anyway, If I lived in a climate like yours, I would definitely not buy this phone!

I live in the similar climate conditions as OP (at least for summer) and I've already purchased this phone. Guess I'm screwed

[QUOTE=tel033;53618386]What batch do you have (14wXX)

My batch is 14W17, so in theory it should be flawed with misaligned flash/camera (which it is a tiny bit) and overheating (which I have not experienced yet).

You are not screwed, don't worry, if you bought it and there is already 40 degrees outside.

You just have to remember a couple of things to keep it cool and you should be able to use the camera whenever necessary.

Do not leave it for too long in hot car or on the sun, do not use it extensively before going to the camera mode.
The last thing you can do is minimize the brightness of the screen when using camera (drawing more power from battery and putting even more heat).

You should be fine though!

Stop the batch madness already. There is no such thing as defect or perfect batch, some models have better build quality than others same as with any other manufacturer, batch has nothing to do with it.
