Hey guys, Im thinking about buying a Xperia X, but I heard alot about it is overheating when recording video. Is this still true or has it been fixed?

Do you think its a hardware issue or can it be software fixed?
In every review they say it will overheat during video recordings

I think it is depending on how you use the device before recording videos. If you for example watch 30 minutes videos and then start the recording, there will be some issues. But usually it should not be a problem day to day

Andrej123 Have you tried to record for more than 5 or 10 minutes to see if it overheats?
A phone should not overheat because of that imo.

Yes my phone does. If you have done something, like taking photos and edited them, after that you can take video few seconds and you start get overheat messages. And video shooting if you "pan" scenery lots of details cause same and image starts to "jump".... waiting update.
