Re: Overheating z1 compact after KITKAT

MIne's started overheating too, but only since the 4.4.4 update.  Battery going quicker and loads hotter than ever before at times.  I don't think i've added any new apps recently either?

 

Edit - battery use shows Android System has used 45% recently, as someone else mentioned

Re: Overheating z1 compact after KITKAT

Yep, all sounds very familiar... hot, bad battery life and a high percentage of system resources being used by the Android system...

 

I've discharged and charge a few times since my last post and I have to say, things have really settled down quite nicely. I don't think the battery lifes as good as 4.3 but its okay. I've had no more heat issues since and the Android System is showing 12% at present. My advice is to hang in there, discharge/charge a few more times and see how you get on.

 

Thinking about it, I might have completely switched off and reset (from standby; volume up and the power button until you feel 3 vibrations) at least once since updating - maybe that helped too? Worth a try :smileysmileywink:

Re: Overheating z1 compact after KITKAT

Still overheating once a day on average.  Strange thing is it stays hot for ages after it's switched itself off, so something's still going on in there?

 

I guess there's nothing to do except get it in to carphone warehouse and let them send it off to Sony?

Re: Overheating z1 compact after KITKAT

I'm having the same heating issue, mine is any time any video is played. Gets crazy hot.
Also under Battery Usage the screen is at 61%
Battery drain is wicked.

This is only since updating to Kitkat 4.4.4
Any chance I can roll back?

Re: Overheating z1 compact after KITKAT

Regarding the overheating: Have you tried a restart and/or reset (using the hidden button under the micro sim flap)?

Regarding the duplicate photos: It may just be a matter of changing the album version (older or newer version). The workaround using. nomedia files did the trick for me.
