How to Fix Xperia M4 Aqua Overheating Issues

If there’s one thing that has always troubled Smartphone users, then it’s the overheating issue. Even the most premium to the cheapest budget devices out there, each one has the overheating problem, and Xperia M4 Aqua is no different.

What causes overheating is the excessive use of processing power. This could happen due to a poorly coded app or an processor intensive game/app. There are no official ways to fix this, but if you’ve root access, you can modify the way CPU works to avoid overheating.

By setting CPU to work low profile, you’ll avoid the issue of overheating, but this will come at the cost of losing a bit of performance. You wouldn’t notice this for everyday use, but processor intensive tasks might do a little slow. But hey! You’ll have a colder phone.

To fix Xperia M4 Aqua overheating issue, grab the Overheating Control package from the download link below and follow the instructions to apply it your device.
