Do you think its a hardware issue or can it be software fixed?

 

In every review they say it will overheat during video recordings Slightly frowning Face

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 Winking Face

I only record videos for less than 2 minutes, no overheating so far.

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.

Mine overheat rapidly (more or less after 2 minutes of recording) but only in the 1080 60 image per second mode. No problem with the 30 i/s mode. I think the processor can't handle it. Too weak. Maybe the xperia x performance doesn't suffer of this weakness. Sad for us. Maybe it is just a question of optimization but i dont't think so.

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.

Is there going to be a fix for this because I feel like I've be robbed.
