[Q] Overheating and Throttling when in 3D?
Are any of you experiencing overheating and throttling on your Xperia ZL's?
I can't be sure that is happening to me, but recently when in 3D, the phone gets quite warm (normal) but then my 3D games start stuttering badly (sign of throttled CPU or GPU). When i hold the phone in front of the aircon and play, this issue doesn't happen (indicating better cooling / no heat or throttling).
The thing is, this is an issue that has only just started happening as of yesterday, despite nearly 2 weeks straight of 3D gaming on the phone (mostly Dungeon Hunter 4).
I've had some success throttling my CPU myself to 700 mhz, but that is only a temporary solution. The phone simply takes longer to get hot and then the game starts stuttering again. My guess is the Adreno 320 GPU is throttling, and it really doesn't have anything to do with the S4.
Any help would be appreciated.
