  • Hello i am quote Daihen Chu.

    I disable it always so i don't turn it back on because it will make my phone get hot.

    Hope this works for you.

    "Hi guys,

    • UPDATE:

    After charging from 50% to 100% (takes about 1.5 hours) but the heating occurs again, the 4 cores of the CPU were loaded 100% statically again so I do disable and enable the service "Media Storage" as the old way so it is no more full loaded of 4 cores. I don't know whether the quick charge is conflicted with "Media Storage" service.  Asus experts have to discover about this issues cause it is very annoy to users and If I do not disable and enable the "Media Storage" like that, the phone would be warm up and the battery would be drained out quickly (it will lost 1% every 10 mins. without using the phone).

    • Temporary solution:

    I have solved the problem about heating of the Max Pro M2 (3GB version) after upgrading to the Android P (Android 9)

    The solution is we have to find the system app called "Media Storage" in the "App & notifications" tab and to Disable and Enable again so this task will reset the app and everything will be fine.

    The reason is 4 of 8 cores of the CPU were loaded to full 100% so it caused the temp to be raised up always.

    When I did the task as mentioned above so all was solved, the 4 cores will back to about 30 - 35% as my case and it will never reach 100% statically and the phone will be cool down.

    I have compared with my old Pro Max M1, the cores of the CPU now were the same loading and the heating was gone.

    I hope that this tips can help.

    Best regards

    Daihen Chu"

  • Hi w4nto83,

    Do you feel like the phone heats up more when using any specific apps?

    About how long were you using the app?

    If there are abnormal heating issues,  we would advise that you have the unit sent in for an assessment and servicing where necessary.
