Nothing you can do right now
Even lv1 advanced mode would lock your cpu speed at 1.31ghz when idle which we don't need right now
They should lower it's idle speed if they want to makes it cooler
It does drop to 300 MHz
It should be
But it won't drop to 300 MHz
Even if you use dynamic mode it will be locked at 845 MHz
Obviously, it does drop, at least on my device.
Same problem why is it too hot.i bought my phone the other day,and i used to video call my husband ,as i started the call it becomes warms till i cannot even hold it.im a big fan of asus and i didnt expect what ive experienced right now.
You have 3 different CPUs on this phone.
4 Cortex A55 with speeds up to 1.8Ghz and lowest of 300
3 Cortex A78 with speeds up to 2,46 GHz and lowest 710mhz
1 Cortex X1 with spees up to 2.84 Ghz and lowest speed of 844 Mhz.
So fi your say "it wont drop below 840 Mhz"... yes thats correct, thats the lowest frequency state the X1 has, thats a 2000mhz drop from its full frequency.
Also whats also important is, how low the voltage is dropped, which you cant see. On mine its works as intended, the cores drop during idle to their lowest frequency setting.
my ZenFone 8 is always hot its not normal and making me want to get a new mobile may be going back to Motorola this is not normal like others saying battery drain to quickly having to plugin a battery pack in during the day defends the purpose of having a smaller mobile
