Alright. This one's interesting.

We were building an android application which had some heavy lifting. Boss asked why app lags on his device but runs fine on other devices of same make.

The bug made no sense. The same code, same hardware, same os, everything same, except Boss's device had a thick protective case.

I stopped checking app logs and instead started logging thermal logs. And voila! It was CPU throttling at 70°C.

All i did was remove the cover and done.
Proudest bug solved without code.

    Nice idea to log thermals.

    Taking boss' phone out of the case won't solve the same issue for many more potentional users though..
