I was recording a video today. After recording for around 10 minutes, pixel started over heating and finally shut down. I removed the case and the phone was too hot to hold. Rebooted the phone but could not view the video I recorded. It was showing error. However, I could see that the video was for 2.6 GB (4K) using file manager. But there was no way I could view or back up the video. Anyone faced similar issues?

Who knows what could have happen, maybe a defective unit. Have you tried to download the video to your computer via USB cable?
