HTC One M9 suffer from overheating under heavy load




A test of Tweakers has confirmed that the HTC One M9 suffer from overheating. In case of heavy load, the temperature of the phone increases to 55 degrees, 40 degrees around which is normal. When playing regular games, the problems are much reduced.

The surface of the HTC One M9 , which Tweakers Monday published a review gets under load the benchmark GFXBench a temperature of around 55 degrees Celsius, while competing devices and HTC’s own One M8 around 40 degrees remain under load by the same benchmark.

It seems that GFXBench the device to sweat in a way that is not common in games. When using 3D games like Asphalt 8 and Assassin’s Creed: Pirates, the temperature even higher than competitors, but he stays around 42.5 degrees, where other phones with such games remain below 38 degrees.

A temperature of 55 degrees is problematic, as it is painful to hold the device. Many phones turn itself off if they get too hot, but the One M9 we have not seen that. The overheating of the One M9 is in line with rumors of its processor, the Snapdragon 810. All in December go there stories about overheating the processor. In daily practice, so too bad, but extreme load the One M9 is much warmer than other phones. This test has been done with non-final software.
