    Does anyone know how to get an LG G Pad 8.3 to stop overheating? It gets pretty hot just playing Minecraft.

    Welcome to Android Central! How hot? Uncomfortably or painfully hot, or just pretty warm? It's normal for devices to heat up a fair amount when running a graphics-intense app.

    Pretty hot to where it becomes uncomfortable to hold.

    I had the same issue and to be honest without access to the kernel there really isn't any way to reduce heat other than not gaming. I tried for about 4 months to find fixes for the heat problem. There were no fixes other than installing a custom kernel which imo I should just go all the way and do a full custom ROM. It doesn't completely fix it because it is a simple fact that the SoC being used just gets hot when running games with 3D at reasonable FPS. With most custom kernel/ROMs you can set the clock speed lower to reduce the heat but it will also reduce the performance at an almost equal rate.

    Thanks for the information. I don't know how to do all the customization ROM installing. May just sell it on eBay, and buy a more powerful tablet. Been having my eyes on the Galaxy Tab S.

    I have been considering the Nexus 9 or an nVidia Shield as a replacement for a more gaming capable tablet.

    Hi Anthony,
    I had the same issue with mine(LG GPad 8.3 VK810, right?). I also had issues with it not syncing, not being able to access my Cloud, etc., etc. I was told to send the device back, so I could get a new one(& to explain this next issue, I'd have to send a pic, I'll try in a bit), but the tablet was powered down & I had it charging, you could see the little battery notification on the front-that it was charging-, I went up to take a shower, came down to leave about 45 minutes later, I could not turn the damn thing on what-so-ever!!! The store couldn't get it to turn on, nada!
    I had to send my tablet back without getting ANY of my info off of it!!
    Ever since Google did their damn update, both my G3 & GPad have been overheating! I'm on my 2nd replacement a total of 3 G3s...& the one I activated on Wednesday, is already overheating!!
    I don't know what I'm going to do.

    Ok, I figured out how to add the pix...I hope...I don't even know what Rooting is, how to do it, what it does, OR how this happened to my tablet, but I only got this on my screen when it was powered off & charging.
