Re: snapdragon s4 pro highest temperature

As mentioned in the other threads regarding heat from the phone, the phone has a builtin heat protection and it will notify you and turn itself off in case it gets too hot. If that's not happening your phone is not getting too hot.

Regarding what heat the CPU itself can handle i can't find anything about in in the standard spec for APQ8064.

Re: snapdragon s4 pro highest temperature

Xperia is correct. I've experienced it myself. The phone shuts down at about 45 degrees C in order to protect all the hardware. On the other hand, Samsung doesn't have this function. My friend's S III fried his SD card because of the intense heat. Well done protecting the hardware, Sony! Of course, glass is a lot more heat conductive than plastic, so you might feel a little more uncomfortable than holding a plastic phone in your hand. I added a shell and it feels a lot better.

I think this is an overkill
