Xiaomi Mi4 Heating Issues ! Is there a Fix?

Xiaomi Mi4, one of the cheapest Android Smartphones in India with Flagship specs, is without any doubt one of the best value for money devices to own. At least on paper that is. It has great specs – Snapdragon 801, 3GB Ram, 3080mAh Battery and iPhonic looks –  but what use is all of these if you can’t use the phone properly?

Mi4-16GB-Flipkart

 

A lot of certified buyers on Flipkart where Xiaomi Mi4 is exclusively sold are complaining about heating issues and some even experiencing the burning smell ! From reading these reviews, it is more likely a hardware issue than a software problem which means the users who bought it have to live with it. ( let’s pray my assumption is wrong and it’s a software issue ).

Check out the below reviews from the Flipkart Mi4 product page to see how serious these heating issues are.

it heats like hell when we play games.
For eg: when i played asphat 8 for 2 minutes then i checked its temperature it was more then 50

It produce more heat when I use to talk less then 5 minutes. It generates more heat when I use camera. But phone is very stylish in the front, very good UI and its features all good.

Phone is getting over heated and emits burning smell after 14 min video recording. and mocrophone was not working for first use .No body is responding from flipkart.I wasted 20000 .

Nice phone guys,but too hot to handle …yup its getting hot around games and on 15 min of talking.I personally experienced low hearing in the phone.Had loved to get a mi4 for long time but disappointing.it hurts..

Feels warm while playing resource hungry games at length and while charging (probably due to the metal frame)

Slimmer + Metal = More Heat Produced/Felt on the back panel. Only Oppo did the right thing by integrating some heat absorbing materials in their Slimmest smartphone – Oppo R5. I think due to these issues, Flipkart is allowing customers to buy Mi4 freely ie No Registration Needed, No Gone in 4secs Flash Sales. This might also be to counter OnePlus One 16GB Silk White sale in India on Amazon.in, priced at Rs 18,999. ( Mi 4 Costs Rs 19,999 for 16GB ). Let’s hope Xiaomi releases an OTA to fix these heating issues, at least to an extend.

Android Lollipop OTA rolling out to Android One devices in India 

Did you jump on the news that Android One devices will get Nexus like updates for two years and ended up buying a Karbonn Sparkle V or Micromax Canvas A1 or Spice Dream UNO? It’s time to update your AndroidOne devices to the latest and the sweetest Android Lollipop 5.1. Android Lollipop OTA rolling out to Android One devices in India.

How to update Android One devices to Lollipop

Currently Google has send OTA updates to only a handful of devices in random. Android One Official page on Google+ says every week they will select more devices randomly and send the OTA, which means there is a chance your device won’t get the Lollipop OTA any soon. However connected to WiFi increases your chance to get the OTA. You can also check Xda if anyone has captured the Android Lollipop OTA url link.

To check if Lollipop OTA update is available for your phone, Go to Settings -> About Phone -> System updates and hit ‘Check for Update’. 

If your device didn’t get the update yet, do not despair, even Nexus devices are yet to get the 5.1 update which we are now treated with. Google is currently pushing out OTA updates gradually and it will takes weeks sometimes for your device to get the update. I have a Karbonn Android One Sparkle V here, and am on WiFi always. No signs of any updates yet. I’ll update the post with the OTA url link if i find one from somewhere so that you can manually download and flash.

Unlike earlier days, many Indian OEMs are keen to update their devices to the latest and visually the prettiest Android Lollipop.

Xolo One and Xolo Q610s

Xolo is an Android One partner, but Xolo One they released a while ago is not an AndroidOne device even though it sounds like one.
