Does anyone's camera get really hot? My camera's battery drains at about 1% a minute when it's doing nothing (quickcapture is off, wifi is off, gps is on); just sitting on my desk. It's only 4 days old.

I also had problem connecting/pairing the gopro with my iphone.. took me an hour and multiple times rebooting both gopro and the phone.. this is so frustrating..

Heat and battery drain are often linked to issues with the SD card. If you have another card that's compatible with your camera, please give that card a try. The list of compatible cards can be found at https://gopro.com/help/articles/Block/microSD-Card-Considerations.

I have this problem with the battery drain and overheating even without the micro SD card in the camera. I have tested the camera in every way possible. It drains the battery extremely fast no matter what. I am getting a new battery now to see if this helps or else the GoPro Hero 5 is going back to where i bought it.

Anyone who is facing this particular problem in 2018; Downgrading from V2.6 to V2.51 just worked fine for me. Funny thing is, I had the same problem before the v2.5x, and it was fixed with v2.5x. After 6 months or more, it automatically upgraded to v2.6 recently and broken again with that version. I'm gonna stick with v2.51 forever I guess.

After reading this whole thread, having the same issues, having disabled everything I can. I have also ruled out the SD card having it out of the device.
So what do I do as I find it so frustrating I'm not even using it? Hate having complete buyer's remorse 😒
