Overheating and Power Consumption - Winzent - 05-19-2013 07:57 PM

Never played an emulator on an handheld devise Before i tryed PPSSPP. But two things i allwas notice when im using PPSSPP is how hot my phone allways become and how fast the power drains away. Will it improve with the development of the program or will it worsen? Might it be specific to my phone or are other people experiencing the same thing? Are there any particular taxing without decresing the preformance to mutch?

Sorry for the multiple questions and if any of this has been asked before ...

On my galaxy s3, ppsspp drains battery as much as simple games like temple run and angry birds. It doesn't seem to drain as fast as gameloft hd games.

This is due to various Factors:

Emulating Hardware or Instruction Sets on anything else besides the Original Hardware would most likely lead to increased need of processing power. So basicly the Phone hardware has to use almost all of it's Power to process the calculations PPSSPP does in order to run Games.

Your Phone lacking processing power, thus running almost all the time at it's limit.

Your Processing power natively uses too much Battery due to native lack of optimization (basicly you need at least as much power for complex apps).
