The Xiaomi Redmi 1S is both a famous and infamous mobile model in India. It has managed to incur the wrath of the buyers mainly because of the heating issues present in a few of the handsets that were shipped and sold in India. A warm device is quite common for the mobiles with quad core processor when it is running some resource heavy applications. But Redmi 1S gets heated up even when there is user has not initiated any apps manually. There has been some solutions for it that can be found in forums like XDA and MIUI, but these solution would involve rooting and probably voiding the warranty. Now MI has rolled out an update that mainly targets to resolve the heating issues.
