He analyzed the issue of overheating and getting lagged at certain point. Even the users of Sony Xperia Z5 Compact are reportedly facing the same issue of the model getting over warmed.

If Temperature Rises Phone Might Shut Down

As narrated by “Shampoo-planet” the user of Z5, the phone does get over warm but not that worm that you can’t hold it in your palm. It’s just you will get worried with the instants of heat you will feel while holding the phone in your hands. He further added that the heating problem begin when he started shooting a 4K video and continue to capture for a long run however, nothing went wrong with the Apps due to this heat except a small lag after closing the app.

Shampoo-planet said when he started camera app in the heated phone; a warning appeared on his phone’s display which is definitely not satisfactory saying ‘The Device will get Shut Down’. Wherein he doesn’t experienced any shut down till now. Moreover, he was very much sure that this something he will get to see soon. He confirmed that phone’s heating made him worried, but not that as the people are describing it on the web. People are making a very big issue of this problem and confusing others about the phones performance.

Gaming Results in Over Warming, though Touch screen was completely Responsive

When the other users asked shampoo-planet, about his gaming experience with the phone. He said that the phone does get warm but not that much. Leaving the issue behind he said an hourly gaming experience was amazing with the phone. The touch screen was working very sound however games menu lag somewhere in between. This was avoidable. However, just after closing the game app the phone lagged for sometime though it is not that annoying.

Shooting 4K Video for a Long Duration Worsen the Heating Issue

He confirmed that he was able to launch the camera app perfectly even with the hot phone. He even supports the fact that the phone does get warm if shooing 4K videos for a longer duration of time.

He explained when he ran 4K video for 4 minute the phone get over warmed and when he review the video, the video is of 4 minute but running in a slow-motion. When he went back to camera app and jumbled up between different camera options the app automatically got shut down.

Final Statements

So making a long story short he said definitely the phone gets overheated if using heavy graphical games for a longer span of time and on prolong using of camera app, to be specific on using 4K video recorder app. Wherein there was no lag in touch response.
