Xperia TX Heat and Draining Problems

Help me guys! The phone is melting!


My phone heats up when:

1-Connecting to charger
2-Opening the phone and start browsing for anything(apps, games, internet). games are the most cause of this heat.
3-Sometimes when I sleep I put the phone under the pillow(for alarm), then I sleep with 100% battery level, I woke up and the phone is about to melt, battery indicator says 10% or even less.

All of that heat problems causes unreasonably battery draining as well!

NOTE: When I turn off the phone and connect the charger, it doesn't get any heat or battery draining and the phone charges correctly.

I don't think its hardware or battery problem, cause when I turn off the phone I don't get any problems at all.


Any help would be much appreciated.

Running phones under a pillow are never a good idea. It will prevent the phone cpu from cooling down and will make even minor wakelocks become a serious heat problem.

Ohh please I don't want to reflash the software, I have so many data and apps I don't want to lose.
Here's a pic of battery usage as you asked:


I'm actually impressed from these results, Google services and Instagram, I actually felt something about Instagram since I installed it, its one of the most apps that heats the phone when I open it.

Overheat control is running.

Now I've installed task manger widget to kill apps, thank god the phone is getting better, heat problem is less now. I used to kill apps with default android task manger by sliding apps. looks like it wasn't really that sufficient.

Unless your task manager widget has root permissions it won't do anything more than swiping apps away in recents.
Try the app Greenify. It will do what you need.
