My unit is Spectre x360 8750H , GTX 1050Ti , 16/512 GB configuration , purchased in US in July 2019 . I'm currently based in China. After hardly a month of use , I ran into an issue " plugged in not charging". I contacted HP and they helped me fix it in China .

The readings were 85-95°C on all the cores( Plugged in , HP recommended Balanced Mode in Command Center , Balanced performance battery slider ) . I was merely using Chrome and some YouTube videos...No gaming or battery hungry softwares.... On battery , the readings were around 65°C ( same modes). The temperature would drop a little if I switched to Comfort Mode and Battery Saver mode ( at the cost of severe drop in performance).
2) Recently, I encountered another issue : Decline in battery life . There is a drop of around 10% in half an hour ( Browsing Internet , 40% Brightness , Comfort Mode in HP command Center , Maximum Powersaving on the battery slider ) . It would only last around 5 hours even on battery saving mode and comfort mode . Battery usage shows 38% Microsoft Edge and 24% Rainmeter ( customization app).
3) I did the Battery test and calibration from BIOS ... The results were :
