AI boost and app crashes

I have seen that the AI boost seems to crash apps, which cause heavy loads such as some games, benchmark apps and on even chrome. Is this normal or am I the only one observing this?


  • I am also the one facing this 'problem' but as it doesn't do much apart from crashing apps I call it AI Crasher. I can live with that.

  • Haha :D That describes pretty accurately what it does. However, I am just curious to know why that happens.

  • My blind guess would be some kind of OC or undervoltage which makes some phones unstable but I don't know where's 'AI' in that :p. On the other hand, AFAIK Qualcomm doesn't allow Snap 855 overclocking so my bottom line is I have no idea

  • Weird. Maybe android 10 update solves this. If not maybe I bring it up again.

  • Not for the reason that it would be very usefull feature but for the reason that I am afraid that it might be similar to the motherboard issue, which caused system instability when I got my device.

    Nah, I don't think so. I have my zenfone 6 for almost 4 months and this feature just crashes 3D demanding apps and games. It's not even a system crash so it's not that, fortunately.

  • Good to hear. I think that the issue might be related to excess heat generation because by using the phone at low outside temperature seems to solve the issue at least mostly.
