Samsung Galaxy Nexus - heat problem

Postby FLCL » Thu Jan 19, 2012 7:24 pm

Hey!
I love FPSE! Only problem I have with it is that my phone gets very hot after a while.
Ive tried FFVII, VIII and IX, its all the same. So I was just wondering does anyone else have this problem? Or is it something wrong with my phone, which is brand new.

Would like to add that I just tried Shadowgun and my phone does not even get close to the same heat as it does with FPSE.
I also read about the same problem with SGSII, any ideas?

It seems like all you need to do is turn off a few options, though I am not 100% sure it fixed it my phone did not get close to the same temp just now when I turned off a few things.

Well, many recent phone easily become very hot!

Sometimes, playing GTA3 for a long time, my HTC Sensation goes to 50°C !
But it bener goes so hot with fpse...let's say 45°C :mrgreen:
And it's not the battery that's so hot, it's rather the part of the phone where the CPU is
We're running high frequencies, dual cores, without any fan to cool the system^^

I mean, have you tried other really heavy android 3D games? Or just watching an HD (720 or 1080p) movie on your device? I'm pretty sure it will become as hot as when playing Fpse.
If your device is new, and if you're comming from a less powerful device (single core, 1ghz max), you may be surprised by the way a recent device can 'normally" become hot

Usually there's a protection against overheating, your device is supposed to reduce its frequency and/or simply shut down in real extreme case

Thanks for the answer! But I have fixed the problem now.
My phone still gets hot, no doubt, but not close to what it used to.
Using FPSE, the heat is now the same as in GTAIII or Shadowgun (most graphic heavy game?), not sure which option I had to turn off to fix it.

Anyway, thanks for answering!

yep, as far as my own experience is, GTA3 is the game that makes my device the hottest possible (and when it reaches a certain point, my CPU clocks down to prevent any damage).
