The 7T Pro overheated today. anyone have advice on how to reduce the potential for this and any other advice with battery overheating?
I have had the phone heat up alot once or twice but seems to have stopped since the last software update

No issues with overheating on my side. In fact, I've never noticed heat coming of the phone before. Can you say more about the circumstances under which this happened? Was it charging? Running a benchmark, playing a game, sitting in the sun? And when it overheated, which error message did you see?

What were you doing before the phone started overheating? Were you playing games? Charging? What was your usage like?

My phone has warmed up before. But never to the degree that it started the decrease performance

Has anyone contacted Vodacom yet for an early cancellation quote? I’m curious how much it would be.

I went to the dark side and moved from iPhone to Andriod. Got myself a sexy OnePlus 8 Pro. Such a cool phone! Obviously not locally sourced. Got it for R16k on Amazon and it was delivered yesterday. Added a case and screen protectors as I knew I wouldn't get them here. Very happy so far. Works perfectly on Telkom and Vodacom (dual sim).

Navigating while driving is quite intensive on the CPU. Coupled with being in a hot car, I do think the probability is high that it will overheat.

How long did you wait for delivery? Who was courier?
Looking at importing, but never done it before.

This is a coincidence, but I just had the perfect opportunity to test the overheating theory. I drove R1500km this past weekend with Google Maps navigation running all the way. Spotify was also playing music via Bluetooth in the background at times. My phone was standing more or less upright in the cup holder in the center console, so the sun was hitting it more or less on the top (side with popup camera). The climate control was set at 21/22 degrees.

The phone functioned perfectly as expected. No overheating to speak of.

Ordered on the 7th of December and it was delivered on the 17th. Used "express" delivery, which was DHL. Was able to track the whole delivery on each stop. First time I've imported something this "big" and it was great.

I'm very disappointed in One+. Part of the attraction was them keeping up with Android releases and 4 months after release, still no 11 on the 7T.

Even Samsung have released it for a few of their phones.

I think they've started to fragment their phones, releasing too many phones and now supporting all of them is an issue.

Also one thing which bugs the hell out of me is not able to delete or remove in the settings the Oneplus club - I don't want to root. I've decided my next phone will be a Samsung partly also because of Dex.

You'd rather your phone had an extra Samsung version of every single app and came preinstalled with Facebook and all the Microsoft apps, than just create a OnePlus account and turn off notifications for one app?

Does the signal strength indicator also drop or you just notice due to the music buffering?
