@redtree55270, what's the microSD card used? Using SD cards that aren't recommended can cause issues like freezing as the card isn't fast enough to write the content, the camera getting hot or battery consumption is higher than normal as the camera stays in an active mode trying to sync to the card.
You can get the full list of microSD cards that are known to work well with GoPro cameras here.
Additionally, make sure that the camera has the latest firmware installed.
