OnePlus 7 T Overheating via OnePlus 7T

    Is it normal that when I play games on my 7T that it gets so hot that it hurts to touch/hold?

    Ever since I got my 7T I've noticed that it gets a lot hotter then my previous OnePlus 7 and regularly gives me a warning to "disable some features to prevent damage" bringing my brightness down to half way! The same game running on both devices with the same graphical settings and the 7T gets at least twice as hot!

    What do I do, please advise! [e]1f62d[/e]

    On both my OnePlus 7 and my OnePlus 7T I run PUBGM with the exact same settings (Max Settings), on max brightness. The OP7 only gets a little bit warm while the OP7T burns... I could cook an egg on it.

    Same settings means nothing when both phones don't have the same hardware, so you can't compare the two.

    Max settings with Max brightness, no wonder why your phone probably gets hot.

    If both devices are set to HD visuals and Extreme fps then surely a more powerful device will have to work less hard to achieve the same performance...

    I don't understand your logic... The game looks and runs exactly the same on both phones but the 7T gets hot... You're explanation actually doesn't make any sense and is irrelevant.

    I haven't tried a workload that intensive, but it would be nice if someone else has so you can compare. I could see it getting hot.

    When you were doing this, were you in a bright room? I ask because peak-brightness on the device can get insanely high, like 950nits, when in direct lighting.

    well the max brightness of the 7 if sub 500 nits and the 7T above 900 nits, if playing on both with max brightness that can explain SOME of the difference in heating

    Then we have SD855 vs SD 855+, which we know the 855+ is a little more power hungry which also outputs a little more heat

    Those 2 together make some sense, not sure how much of a difference it should be though

    I myself play CODM so I wont be able to test, that said I saw on my 7T a few days back that it heated on idle and then when gaming it heated even more. So if you are rooted maybe you have that same issue I had a few days back.

    this time OnePlus emphasized a little bit to much on speed over temp. it's not hurting the phone. the 855+ is a overclocked 855 and as such produces more heat, compared with the fast speed profile makes a hot phone

    I completely understand if the 7T gets a little warmer then the 7 but when the 7T gets 2-3 times hotter (rear camera feels like over 50°C) it seems like it may be a fault in the hardware.

    I've never had an overheating warning from any past phone I've owned... It seems like an oversight if the 7T is capable of overheating... or faulty hardware?

    It's too cold here for me to test
