Isn't tiktok a product of the PRC? Its probably mining for bitcoins with the big cores any time its running.

I've temperature issues (50°C warning message) during Wi-Fi tethering with one guest PC that makes heavy use of P2P-Services (10Mbit Up/Down simultaneously and ~500 connections). I could reduce the load significantly (25°C) by using USB-Tethering instead. I'm using a rooted phone with AFWall. Any idea what keeps the phone so busy on Wi-Fi?

Pixel 6. Only overheats while on Qi wireless charger. Last night it overheated to the point of interrupting the charge, and slowed functions on the phone. 3XL was awesome. Never any problems until it updated to Android 12. Now Google won't give us the bug fixes.

Really? Mine (P6P) is ice cold while charging on Qi. Its the only way I charge it.

I bought a Chargie. I can stop charging when the battery reaches a certain temperature, and resume charging when the phone cools down. I wireless charge in thecar for convenience. But overheating is bad to start off with.
 
The two times i had a problem with overheating was:

1) When setting up, downloading, installing all my apps, it became pretty warm.

2) Due to the lack of the 3.5 mm jack, I tried using a USB-C to 3.5 mm jack dongle. Within a minute of playing a video, the audio began to stutter, the system became sluggish, and the phone got really hot very quickly. The dongle was very cheap, and search of the forums shows the Pixel 6 has USB Audio issues.

Other than those two times, I haven't had any problems

Mine does. But only sometimes. Not sure what causes it.

Just casual scrolling on social media. Left side of the screen gets hot. Only the left side - where my thumb conveniently rests while swiping.

Weird. Other parts of the phone are cool. Even the back is cool. Maybe someone can enlightened me what is under the left side of the screen?

I'm indoors and it's 25°C. Brightness at 40%. I'm not charging, batt at 67%. I have good cellular and WiFi signals.

Not so much and so often - after the December update I was even able to record 20:43 min of 4k video 60 FPS - this is kind of the most intensive thing I found besides maxing it out on synthetics or using intense games like the Genshin :)

I did a video on this you can check it it`s in the how to`s.

I bought one and it uses March update but I have exactly the same problem. First left side then all back side. Watching Instagram reels or YouTube shorts triggered I guess. How is your doing did you find any solution for this.

Just got my 4th RMA. This time I've got a brand new Pixel 6 Pro manufactured in March 2022. This one seems to be heating up really fast. I don't know if it's the fact I have many things optimizing in the background. But phone keeps draining running warm. Currently at 37.2c which feels normal...but I saw spikes at 42c

Also the fact that everything happened at the same time.... New phone. March update. I'm gonna wait and see if the April update gets released this week and use android Flash Tool to bring it back to clean slate.

Usually overhearing issues are problems with software ... Not hardware

    Just so everyone understands.
    The P6 back cover plate is a heat sink.
    The back plate is lined with copper to pull heat away from the electronics.
    So with this in mind, the back plate can get hot while charging or heavy use.

    My pixel 6p overheated to 49 degrees Celsius when I was on a Skype call for 40 minutes. It was so hot that when I held it it was painful. I returned the phone. Is pixel 6 having the same issues?

    Never had such issues with Pixel 3xl, or my OP8T

    Google hasn't had the best track record with their previous Pixels. They've all seemed to have at least one hardware issue. The Pixel 5s have overheating problems for example. Just wondering if anyone has run into any issues?
