Instagram Hogging Resources, Making Moto X very hot
I wasn't quite sure which forum to post this in, but figured I'd put it under Moto X in case it's a phone-specific problem.
Lately (last 2-3 weeks), I've noticed that whenever I open Instagram, my Moto X gets very hot and the battery dies very quickly. The battery is depleting at about 10% every 5 minutes, even while not in use. My phone also gets extremely hot, and very very laggy. The only way to stop the drain is to force stop Instagram and/or reboot the phone.
I noticed today that when I plugged my phone in to charge (via computer), the battery was level was going down even while the screen was off, phone plugged in, and not being used. The app "Clean Master", which I use to clear cache's occasionally, popped up with a notification saying Instagram was using 98% of the CPU resources. I force closed Instagram, rebooted, and everything was fine.
One thing I've noticed is that Instagram seems to take over screen brightness controls, as my phone seems to jump to 100% brightness whenever I'm using the app. I know this could drain the battery quickly, but it doesn't seem to explain the extreme CPU usage or the phone heating up. These problems happen everytime I open Instagram, it doesn't seem to happen when I receive Instagram push notifications, until I access the app.
Anyone else having similar problems with Instagram on their Moto X?
