    After updating my 1520 to 8.1, my device sometimes suddenly getting so much hot at top left side (front and back) to a degree I thought its melded and the battery discharged 25% per hour. Happened 3 times in the first 2 days then I did a hard reset, then everything were ok for one day and again I did fully charge it (many settings turned off, wifi, data, bluetooth, location, nfc, IE syncing, advertizing ID) and also closed all apps running then put it into stand by, slept for less than one hour then wake up to find the phone very very hot to a degree I thought it will not turn on again (73% battery remaining) clicked the power button, black screen with stuck loading appeared, long pressed the back button to discover this is the start screen itself. Turned off the phone then switched it on again, worked again but instantly the heat rises again without doing anything. Turned it off again until it became cold and turned it on and again the heat return without opening anything. Then turned off backup settings and every other settings even the battery saver it self turned off from the background. Restart again still there is heat but after 5 min things become better. Now there is heat but don't know what to do.

    My main concern hear is the phone being heated to this insane level. At this level of heat I'm afraid the phone makes fire while sleeping or explodes.
    As much as I'm being crazy to have WP8.1 as much as I'm afraid from my phone now.

    Anyone can help, anyone experienced this? Any suggestions?
    So sad 😢

    I killed all background apps, also ALWAYS running the phone in battery saver mode. Things better until now.

    Same issue here on my 1520. It has made my phone almost worthless. This is the buggiest OS preview I've seen as of yet.

    I advise you to flash your phone with NSU or Nokia recovery tool to get Windows Phone 8 back, I flashed my phone and I can't be happier :) everything is smooth again, hubs are back, that's the real WP experience!

    Yes you are right. I'm surprised with the large number of bugs. As many don't know, they call it a preview but its actually the RTM version which mean ready for consumer except the firmware part.

    It's a beta, what do you expect? But I noticed if it is plugged in it heats up so much I had to unplug it.

    Don't worry a lot. Microsoft can make new builds and hot fixes anytime. But just hope they do. I'm just afraid they don't take the heat issue seriously.

    It is not a beta.
    Also I'm not expecting my phone to "Burn" even if it is a beta. And this is actually RTM. Just disaster.

    Well, it's a preview. It's made to help developers optimize their apps for the new OS.

    Yes right. And to discover small bugs in the OS but this heat issue is not allowable. It may damage the phone totally or make fire. Just wondering if they know about it and released it anyway.

    The phone will perform an instant shut off if it is too hot, but I agree that they need to fix the heat issue.

    Aha good to know that. Makes me feels better. I know this is exist in computer systems and good to be exist in phones too.
    Why I'm so nervous is that i have never touched a phone hot to this level. Imagine 27% battery in less than one hour on stand by. This should last minimum 27 hours on standby. Even when I run heavy games it won't consume that much.

    Mine doesn't heat up when I'm using it, but when I plug it in it literally goes up 4 - 6 degrees
    I had to keep it under a fan last time.

    Issue solved. It's the location services. Disable them and your battery life will go back to normal. I added it to action center quick toggle. Can't use Cortana while disabled, but super quick to re-enable.

    Problem - i had overheating and major battery drain for my l820. I tried turning off most background apps - messaging apps, the battery was still draining hard. I couldn't turn off ie11 background becuz there was no option to.

    Fixed for now - After 5 days of trial, i found one of the main culprit battery hugger was yahoo email had been syncing forever. So I did a soft reset (hold power+volume down for 10secs), deleted yahoo email, I was also able to get the option to turn off ie11 background app function.

    Now the phone seems to be back to normal battery usage and no overheating. I'm still testing it with lte, location, some background apps, low screen, surfing and YouTube.
    Battery performance app tells me its consuming 12.8%/hour.

    In my case Location were turned off. I think it help to disable it but there is many reasons for the heat issue.

    guys go to battery saver and check all apps...the problem is that most of your apps have background processes turned on automatically so that takes up a lot of battery power as well as a lot of RAM and keeps pushing the phone to its limits....turn off all background tasks other than the ones you really need...i think it will solve the issue....it did for me....

    As far as I know this is already the final version of 8.1 for now until GDR1

    It does not however include the OEM drivers that will optimize the OS for each specific device. The OEM drivers should help with battery consumption.

    This is the reason why I'm holding back until the Lumia Cyan update arrives.
