    As soon as I play a game, no matter how much battery life I have, the phone overheats and then says battery low and shuts down immediately. As soon as I turn in back on afterwards, battery life is still fine but doesn't change though I use the phone till phone cools down. It suddenly started to happen, I didn't update or did anything suspicious.

    Check the battery saver app to see if any apps are using too much battery.. Did you install any new apps/games recently? Removing them and soft resetting might help

    Edit: Keep us updated

    Hey it was sort of my advice! It was -becoming- my advice. Advice-in-training if you will.

    Yep - typical symptoms of a failing battery. Its internal resistance rises, so it gets hot when you draw a lot of current from it. The voltage output drops and the phone either declares it as having a low charge, or just switches off immediately.

    When you restart the phone it only draws a small current until you start gaming again. The small current from the battery means not much voltage is lost across its internal resistance, so the phone sees a healthy voltage and declares the battery to be well charged. Next time you start playing a game the current draw increases, the battery voltage drops, the battery gets hot, and it all repeats.

    A new battery will fix it.

    Note: the battery charge indication is only reliable when the battery is good and healthy. A failing battery will not give reliable charge readings.
