Hello !
Unfortunately, it happens when the phone is unplugged...

I just tested 60hz and it's not as hot...
It seems that 120hz adaptative IS causing that..

But why on lower part of screen? Could be a damaged unit....there is nothing behind....charging port and few cables.... literally....

If you have warranty try to claim it...



Try running 90hz....best compromise.... Search for setedit - no need to root.... It may be best....for me it works...better battery and no human will see difference between 90 and 120

Absolutely
Well, that's the only thing I can think off. Also, most likely the heat is present on more devices, but people just consider it "warm" rather than heat.
Being on the lower bottom of the screen hides it really well too, as that's not the most interacted part of the screen.
Absolutely
I'm going to use the device without swipe gesture to see if this is the problem
Can you try Too ?

When heat occur/stay it's often when :
- when charging
- when running big apps
- when app(s) drain the battery a lot

Question is how isyour SOT / battery life ?

It happens everytime i am scrolling on social médias ( tik tok, twitter, Facebook, Instagram...)
I'm not gaming at all
When I'm watching youtube or Netflix, the device is cool !
I think it's a refresh rate issue..
My SOT is around 5 hours

When I watch videos (yt or netflix), screen is really cool.

Really weird
I disabled swipe gesture but heating is still there...
To be fair, in the last 3-4 OTA updates, I haven't done a clean install. (Didn't wiped and format data since I bought the phone).
Refresh rate seem to be a logic reason for it.
Also, a while ago I played with an app that was allowing to change the refresh rate to 90Hz, but it was somewhat buggy and I switched back to 120Hz ever since.

    Mine is also heating in that area without being plugged.
    Really weird, since I'm running stock 12.5.7.0.
