    Hi guys,

    Long story short I play clash of clans for 5 minutes or so and my S3 shuts down. I'm thinking there's a temperature gauge problem, but most other apps can get the processor extremely hot before it turns off. Any quick fixes? I just need this thing to last until the S5 comes out.

    Thanks in advance.

    If youre not rooted you could try turning on powersave mode to underclock the cpu but it might make the game unplayable :thumbup:

    Yeah, it sounds like your thermal throttling isn't aggressive enough and the phone shuts down to protect itself.

    Without root, your options are pretty limited. Its really strange that it would continue too get that hot with the stock throttling :thinking:
