Moto G5 Heating Issues.

2017-04-09, 4:33 AM

I bought Moto G5 from Amazon on April 5, 2017. Got delivered 2days back. Mobile gets heated while charging and using camera. I have never faced these issues with Lumia mobiles for past 4 yrs. Going to return back to Amazon.

Remember what charger you are using. It's a turbo charger. Heating is very common.

Even Samsung, Nokia, iPhone, HTC, etc phones get heat.

This is not an issue. Flow of electrons cause heat...

 

Just think when a cheap P4 processor of PC produces so much that we kept a fan on it..

 

Then SD625 is much better than P4 So, how can you expect a mobile without heat..

Thirunavu, see this video once. You will understand how better G5 plus is compared to other devices in terms of heat.

All modern devices will get hot when recording video OR charging. Lumia phones were IMHO hardly anything modern.

Mine heats a lot when playing Dream League Soccer, for example. It's​ worse on the top zone of the phone. Near the bottom is kinda normal.

@timothyLeary

Is your Moto g5 getting hot around the earpiece, because you stated that gets hot more on the top than on the bottom?

It's more on the top of the screen, not so much around the earpiece. But I've only experienced it while gaming.

 

One thing that I notice is that if I clear all the background apps before playing it doesn't happen so much.

So during normal use you would Not experience this heating on the top of your Screen?

No, during browser, using normal apps, listen music or videos it doesn't happen. Why do you ask? Are you having problems?

well when I use the phone on a normal level, meaning browsing the web watching youtube Facebook etc this precise part around the earpiece tends to get warm. the rest of the phone really keeps cool to the touch and there is no problem whatsoever. so I am asking the community whether this is something normal or an abnormalty which I need to get sent in.
