  1. Thank you! My Noe 5 kept overheating and rebooting, and I followed your
    ideas, and found “battery saving mode= maximum” and that fixed everything!
    No, I don’t have my waterfall theme and no, I don’t have tons of apps, but it
    is working again, and connecting to the internet and NOT overheating! (106 was the last temp….)

  2. my Note 5 over heated while charing and auto switched off. when the phone was turned back on it was on 80% and would not charge any longer. the battery drained empty and will not charge anymore. What should I do?

  3. I have a Galaxy Note 5 that displays a false overheating issue. It gives a message that the phone is overheating when it is not hot at all.Gives message – Closing apps to cool down. Then you are unable to open any apps phone, message etc…Then next it says shutting phone down due to overheating.
    I have tried clearing the partition cache, and have done 3 factory data resets. I sent the phone in to Samsung last time this happened 4 months ago and the tech sent it back and said it was not fixable. I did a factory reset that time and have been able to use the phone normally for 4 months but now the problem is back and no way to fix. So how to fix A.Bera?
