    i just noticed my one plus 7 pro overheated while playing pubg on gaming mode, and i wasn't even using fnatic mode because it heats up more, it has never done that before, can someone help?

    Physics :rolleyes::rolleyes:


    You can read the instructions, it's already mentioned in PUBG too if you play on high graphics with higher frame rate your device gets heated, and fnatic mode does exactly the same

    If your game is not getting crashed that means the phone handles it well,
    Another problem due to the glass back it feels much hotter then it is in real.
    And another problem is the summer of India it's too hot.

    Well, I'm using the fnatic mode on my OP5 while playing PUBG it's consuming much battery then the gaming mode but the performance is increased little bit, so it's up to you.
    While 7Pro have additional and better hardware than OP5 you should use fnatic mode, switch to gaming mode in afternoon or after 1 hrs of playing ( when you feels phone getting heated).
    That's all.

    Exactly what becomes 60°C?
    The CPU starts to thermal throttle at over 80°C so its more than capable with 60.
    The phone is designed to spread the heat out in the chassi/frame of the phone. Without that the CPU/SoC would be heated alot faster. You will not feel the heat in your hands and without measuring the temperature you would not notice much more than a hot spot on the phone. It would fell better holding the device but certainly not better for performance.
    If you really need long gaming sessions at those settings use one of those gaming pads where you mount the phone in with fans.
    So with good cooling it's only a matter of time, workload, screen brightness and ambiant temperature that desides how hot the phone feels. Adjust settings of the game, adjust screen brightness, remove any case you might be using, and try some active cooling if it still does not help.

    the phone heats up alot at the upper area of pop up camera and the metal area is heated up so badly that it is hard to touch

    That region is the hottest spot. Let's take 51 degrees as an example. You need 2 minutes to risk a second degree burn. 55 only 17 seconds.
    The SoC can work slightly over 80 and tries to spread the heat out in the phone body to get rid of the heat.

    Let it cool down. Then run a test with that app for 15 minutes. Also mention the ambiant temperature. Post a screenshot and I and someone else can look at it. Time for some sleep here now though 😴
    You have most probable nothing to worry about
