While using Galaxy S8/S8+ Camera, popup window about “Exit Camera. Battery temperature too high” appears and thus cannot use camera properly. Why is this?

Last Update date : 2017.11.20



When you use features or apps that require more power or use them for extended periods, your

device may temporarily heat up due to increased battery consumption. Also, your device may

heat up due to the exterior environment conditions (i.e. using for extended periods in very hot

areas, storing device in very cold or very hot temperatures, exposure of device to direct sunlight. Etc)




When the device heats up, the features and performance may be limited or the device may turn

off to cool down with overheating message. To lower the device’s temperature, the screen

brightness and the performance speed will be limited and battery charging will stop. Running

apps will be closed and you will only be able to make emergency calls until the device cools



Accordingly, Camera may shut down while using it if your device may heat up.


This is a normal operating condition to prevent damage to the device.

At that time wait for the device to cool down and then activate the camera again.
