Lightbulb Overheating Solution

I am considering buying a Z2 in the next couple of days as a gift for my wife , it is stylish, with great power

but after reading about the overheating issue( while normal usage, NOT 4K recording) of this phone and the self cracking back glass of it.
I started to have second thoughts about it

until I read in an article somewhere that this phone uses the heating pipe technology to dissipate heat ( I think the heating issue coming from poor implementation of this tech) and till now (Z3 launch around the corner) sony hasn't commented on

what about having a normal TPU case on the back of it, since plastic can absorb heat from the back glass cover and dissipate it to the air, since plastic absorb and release heat faster than any glass ( some like DIY, Poor man's heat sink)

and what about rooting the phone and throttle the CPU your self by under-clocking it.

I really like this phone and I want to buy it and Sony was close, really close to craft the perfect android phone but they blew it

Also I hear that after batch 14w25, those problems disappeared, is that true ???

please help anyone

Great question so far, I can say to you that DEPEND on the device. some got that issue, some not, and you cant check the 13wxx or 14wxx until you open the tray(which mean you open and use the phone). Just wait after 3 Sep and see which one you prefer. Current price for z2 is around $600 and the z3 is likely $1k when it launch. Hope this help.

Had no problems with my phone under normal usage. Btw no root just only stock.

If your wife is a average girl who loves shopping online, selfie picture , surfing the net, playing cute games, and Facebooking.

She will be pleased cause this phone is a stylish, beautiful, powerful to enough to her needs.

Most overheating issues are 4k video shooting and camera that was open too long to overheats. If you are playing kritika, high settings will slow the phone but normal setting is a smooth. FYI, Kritika is a high 3d game.

No overheating problems with mine. Runs quite cool to be honest 38-40deg C idle.

You need a custom kernel which in turn needs an unlocked bootloader, as there's no sources beyond 402 yet you need 402 fw to use dooms custom kernel or if on cm/pa/pac/carbon there's m5 kernel

That might be battery temp? My G3 ran at 50-55degC idle!

I am expecting Z2 price to go down, once Z3 is lauched, and I am not going to pay 1k for a phone, it is not a car, it is not boat, and it is not a rocket...

Z2 is sufficient ( Great Display, Powerful Processor, Tons of ram ) and stylish
my only problem is the overheating and (rumored ) self cracking issue
