vikass17 learn the difference between "heats" and "overheats". Yes, your S3 heats, but does it force close apps?

Name me a device that doesnt heat, my sgs3 after 4.3 update burned my finger, my fingers were hurting even when i was not using it, you could feel the heat without touching the phone, even when it was not used from hours, sony xperia z ultra heats while, browsing, playing and charging but only 70% compared to s3, personally i dont think any phone can heat more than my s3.

For me Qualcomm is becoming ridiculous. Since the first device g flex2 there was no official statement from this company. I got the impression that LG.htc. Sony and all others were left alone to solve this big failure on their own. I was so excited to hv the 810 so I bought the flex2 at is release, But sent it back after a week. Again!!!! To all who don't believe....you can't fix a major hardware problem with software patches. And what is really annoying me now is the communication to public of Qualcomm. Do they think customers are too stupid to realize who's fault it is??? Yea, sorry u lost a true Fan.

There's a possibility that they'll gonna undervolt the cpu and gpu upon a small update..rooting can solve that one..

Haven't visited this site for weeks but nothing is new, Sony Mobile is still marching towards the abyss, willingly and with open eyes, nothing grows in their tracks. So expert in failures

dont understand.. how software fix can fix bad processor :/ reducing power its not fix. Specialy if u pay lots of $ for flagship performance device.

Hopefully under S820 shows a strong comeback
