    On Monday we shared a report that the HTC One M9 was experiencing an overheating issue due to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset. The surface temperatures for the device were reaching 131 degrees Fahrenheit during benchmark tests.

    Shortly after that, one of HTC's execs wanted to reassure customers that it was because the final software revisions weren't in place and the overheating issue would be fixed. The latest report from XDA suggests they have kept their word. Here's a quote describing the fix:
    On top of this revelation from a fellow forum poster, HTC themselves recently Tweeted that the device is finalized and ready to be shipped. We will have to wait until final retail shipping units have been tested to be sure, but things are looking good. Whew! Assuming everything reported is true, HTC (and Qualcomm) fans can breathe a sigh of relief.

    Hmmm, underclocked like LG did with the Flex 2?

    I'm rooting for HTC and I hope they get things right with this phone.

    That's probably a good guess @wicked! ;)

    Either that or some type of throttling of the CPU/GPU.

    They should have stuck with the 801 or went with the 805. Sad they most likely had to dial things back to make it function without this issue. But then you'd have people complaining about using old processors even though there would be no noticeable difference. I'm sure it'll run just fine but I hate to see HTC solve one issue just to create another. I really wanted the M9 to be great.
