    Has anybody experienced overheating of the phone?

    Last night I noticed my leg getting hot. I pulled my phone out and it was probably the hottest I've ever felt a phone. It had shut off and took about an hour to cool down enough to turn on. Besides the heating, there was some battery draining as well.

    If its heating that much, the battery is going to be draining. Thats where the heats ultimately coming from - excess power usage.

    I havent experienced this, but chances are you have an app running rogue. Keep tabs on your battery stats if it happens again.

    I checked it last night and nothing out of the ordinary popped up.

    That is certainly unusual. My phone does not get very warm at all.

    Mine was like that for three days and I been clearing apps data and deleting unwanted apps, but still the same then I looked it up. I've been using the highest brightness. My baby probably turned it up high, because I never use high.

    If it gets too warm... Think of it as a gentle reminder from the universe that you need to take a break.

    Mine gets hot too, but no hotter than my last two phones when I am putting it through it's paces. Well, maybe a little hotter, but this is the first phone I have had with an aluminium case, and I figure that the whole case has been designed to work as a heatsink. I'm not worried about it.

    hey guys, my Nexus 6p is heating excessively from moderate use like taking pictures and playing normal games for a while. I have cleared cache too but it didn't help. Please suggest how to solve this issue.

    Can you define hot? Like hot by a temperature app, too hot to hold, or something else?

    I am using "CpuTemp" app for measuring temperature of my CPU, as the portion between the camera and the fingerprint sensor heats up. The temperature reaches 130°F from 95°F (55°C from 34°C) by just playing game (Clash Royale) for 10 minutes.
