Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

  1. Model Name: ROG 5
  2. Firmware Version: 229
  3. Rooted or not: Not rooted
  4. Frequency of Occurrence: Daily
  5. APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): Heating of phone even with menial tasks

In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.


I had the wifi and hotspot issue where it won't turn on for which the solution given was changing of the motherboard. After my motherboard was changed from the service centre, I have been having overheating issue with my phone.

Even with normal usage of phone for menial tasks, the phone heats up. ROG 5 being a gaming phone, doesn't quite give a nice experience due to the issue I'm facing. Only after 1-2 games, the phone heats up like crazy and then starts the frame drop and lagging in-game.

Please revert back and give me a solution for this because this is now a problem for me as I can't even play a third game without frame drops and lag which is not what I bought a GAMING PHONE for.
