Xiaomi Mi Note Pro Overheating Problems Arise (Updated)

by Martin 13

The Mi Note Pro has just gone on sale today and reports of both severe and general overheating problems have already started popping up on social media as well as on the Xiaomi official forums.

xiaomi-mi-note-pro-overheating-issues-01Some users have reported severe cases of overheating that have led to their devices to completely fail with burned motherboards while overheating on other Mi Note Pro units have led to display or touchscreen failure. There have also been reports that using the device while charging ended up overheating the device.

Many attest the overheating problems to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor that Xiaomi decided to use for the Note Pro. The Snapdragon 810 has become notorious for overheating with companies like Samsung opting to abandon the Snapdragon 810 in their flagship phones due to the heating issues although Qualcomm has denied these accusations.

Before the launch of the Mi Note Pro, Xioami said that the company ended up applying for five different thermal patents to solve the overheating issues of the Snapdragon 810 but these reports reveal that the issues might not have been solved at all. Whether the overheating problems are still fixable through software updates is unlikely but we’ll have to wait to see how Xiaomi responds.

    • a’ndre ‘ci

      that’s marketing

      • Werner Gerber

        And the “reports” of burnt motherboard is “marketing” of a different kind …

        • a’ndre ‘ci

          yes, definitely possible

  • yay

    i curious with the source, what is the forum they talked about this minote ? i want to see the forum

  • qandrav

    “Some users ”

    How many? 5%, 10% or 90% of the owners?

  • dpenev

    Well 1 user for how many Xiaomi sold? (1
    million ?). It is actually not bad. Add into this that we don’t know if this
    user has not done something faulty (like plugging wrong charger for example).
    And as a result hundred of internet articles about overheating popping up all
    over the place. All this talks to me how unreliable the internet information
    media now a days. Shall we believe that the problem was with a single user only?
    Well the author seems to agree with that as he has published the Xiaomi update.
