    Overheating is usually caused by both the surrounding environment and daily usage habits. Consult the steps below for troubleshooting suggestions:

    1. Unsuitable environment
    The phone should generally be in temperatures from 0°C to 35°C. Excessively high or low temperatures will affect phone operation, result in overheating or charging failure, and potentially even cause phone and battery damage. Avoid using the phone in high-temperature environments for extended periods of time, especially in summer. In high-temperature outdoor environments, the phone may be unable to properly cool itself and overheat as a result.

    2. High-intensity operation for extended periods of time
    • In gaming mode, the CPU will run at a high frequency and generate heat. Though the phone is equipped with a cooling system, if high-intensity games are played for a long time, the phone may feel hot to the touch.

    • When watching films, TV series, live streams, or online videos, do not hold the phone in the palm of your hand. If done for a long time, this can cause the phone to overheat.

    3. The phone feels warm while charging
    Charging the phone is a process of energy conversion. The charging device will generate heat during operation. It is normal for both the phone and charger to be warm during this process. Quick Charge generates a greater amount of heat, so the temperature will rise more than other phones.
    We advise using the standard OnePlus charger for charging. Make sure to put the phone in a well-ventilated environment during charging. Avoid using the phone as much as possible when it is charging. Doing so can affect battery life and cause the CPU to overload, which will cause further overheating.

    Take the following measures to alleviate any overheating issues:

    1. Enable battery saver mode
    Go to [Settings]-[Battery]-[Battery Saver] to enable [Battery Saver] mode. If any apps are consuming a high amount of energy, your phone will remind you to close these them, as well as other apps not being used, in order to reduce power consumption and decrease heat.

    2. Close functions and apps that are not in use
    Wi-Fi, positioning, Bluetooth, hotspot transmitting and other functions run in the background continuously, which consumes considerable amounts of energy. To avoid overheating, only enable these functions when necessary, and disable them after use.
    Clearing out other background apps not currently in use will reduce power consumption and decrease heat as well.

    3. Adjust the screen timeout time and screen brightness
    Shorten the automatic screen timeout time or press the power button to turn off the screen when you do not want to look at the screen.
    Turn on screen brightness auto adjustment to reduce power consumption and decrease heat the screen being on for a long time on high brightness.

    4. Use a proper protective cover
    Leather and metal protective covers are not conducive to keeping the phone cool. Do not use thick protective covers; select thin and breathable ones instead. When the phone is being charged or whenever the phone temperature rises, remove the protective cover and turn off the screen.

    Do a Full Factory Reset

    This will restore you to a fresh installation of Android. So you will need to backup your phone.

    After Backing up the phone.

    Go to Settings,
    Reset Options,
    Enable Erase Internal Storage.

    Then click on the Delete All Data button.

    Once done, use the phone for a couple of days without adding apps to check for issues with just the raw fresh OOS only.

    Only introduce previous 3rd party apps gradually over 2 weeks to see if any particular app or apps drain the battery

    For more info on how to backup your phone, check the solutions here.


    And here



    Try to Optimize the phone, clear your recent apps, also set 3rd party apps to Optimize in Settings Battery, only leave the ones you need run in the background or to notify you such as messages, email, Google Services, oneplus etc on Intelligent control.

    Android may take a few days to optimize those apps after setting them to Optimize depending on your usage of those apps. A10 has its own learning curve.

    Go through 2 to 3 charge cycles, leave on charge beyond full capacity for a couple of hours. Preferably overnight.

    After a few days, Check App battery stats at about 50% and see if there are particular apps using more resources than necessary.
