When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards.

Handle Calls without Interruption with Call Popout
How many times has someone ended your winning streak in Angry Birds by calling you at the least convenient moment? With Call Popout, incoming calls will no longer ruin your gaming experience. Rather, you can configure the app to deliver minimally obtrusive floating notification that doesn’t get in the way of your game.
The application, created by XDA Senior Member leducbao, offers an unique way of handling calls by creating profiles for specific applications or games that may be running in the foreground. For example, when you are playing and someone calls you, a small circle with the photo shows up and you can: reject, accept, mute and hide, go back to phone app, or toggle speaker mode. These are quite a few options to handle a simple call.
The size of the circle is customizable and can be set from the small to huge. It’s also possible to select where the circle should appear on your screen. Call Popout allows you to select or exclude apps. The author claims that his application works on almost all devices, but a list of tested devices is available on the website.
If you wish to no longer be bothered by incoming calls when in your favorite game, you may want to give Call Popout a try. Head over to the application thread to get started.
