Problems for OnePlus 9 Pro

Some users who have come into possession of OnePlus 9 Pro have massively reported obvious overheating problems on social networks, which seem to be related to the extensive use of the camera.

The reports were reported by the Android Authority website: a user complained that he experienced this problem firsthand while trying to shoot a one-minute 4K video, while others were not even able to take simple pictures.

The smartphone's high temperature is therefore to block, in a completely automatic way, some standard smartphone features such as the camera app.

The overheating problems would also affect the OnePlus 9 Pro battery. On Amazon India, several certified buyers have reported how the overheating warning was displayed even before you could finish setting up your phone. Other problems would also be related to excessive battery usage.

The overheating is getting quite annoying. And the fact that it blocks taking photos is frustrating in the moment.

OnePlus has promptly responded to the reports claiming to be working to resolve the problems mentioned with a specific software update that will be released in the coming weeks.

Not indifferent problems if we consider the fact that OnePlus 9 Pro has only been on the market for two weeks and has already received several updates. There were many who stressed the fact that the company should have spent more time perfecting the software of the device before putting it on the market.

OnePlus, in any case, has shown itself to be transparent towards its users, inviting them to submit complaints on the official forum if subject to overheating problems. Not everyone seems to be affected by the problem, our sample used for the review has never exhibited such behavior.
