Your Pixel 3 phone will prompt certain warning messages
If your Pixel 3 gets overheated, you will receive a notification saying the "Phone is getting warm".
During this state, some features will be "limited" while charging speed will be slowed down dramatically.
Moreover, in some cases, the phone will automatically shut down and a "Phone turned off due to heat" message will show up upon reboot.
What should you do if your phone is affected?
While Google is yet to weigh in on this, it is unclear how widespread this overheating issue is.
Moreover, it is difficult to ascertain if overheating is due to a software bug or is triggered by a hardware fault.
That said, some affected users reported that a replacement device helped them get over the problem, meaning this could be a hardware issue.
Earlier, these two issues plagued the Pixel 3 phones
This issue isn't the first major problem plaguing the Pixel 3 flagships.
Recently, a glitch allowed Pixel 3 XL to add a second notch on the screen.
And before this issue, the Pixel 3 phones failed to save photos. Many users reported when they come back to look for the clicked photos, they either see nothing or a thumbnail that disappears on being tapped.
