Here are the 5 Reasons why your smartphone overheats and how to correct them
Everyone love their smartphone, because it is their true “life companion”( I remember that Samsung Galaxy ad). But a phone that gets overheated just by the usage of few minutes( or hours, these spent like minutes when you are intensively engaged ), is never a good choice to carry along.
Not only a heated phone is uncomfortable to use but other threats like explosion are also there. So in this article, I’ll discuss some common mistakes users make which contributes to the overheating of their smartphone. And how it can be prevented.
It is always recommended to change your battery after a specific time period. But most users like to keep using their phone with the old battery until it is fully drained. An old battery provides slightly less power than needed, this difference is so little that it goes unnoticed. The processor of your phone tries to compensate this which results in increased load.
This load on processor leads to increased load on battery and this cycle follows upto a point where your phone is hot enough to cook something on it and you are forced to take a pause.
2.Damage Caused by Water
Usually, all of us listen the songs while taking shower. Overheating and power issues problem occurs mostly with water exposure. Locate the LDI (Liquid Damage Indicator) sticker on your phone to make sure that your phone is not experiencing any problem related to moisture or liquid damage.
This is also a factor. Like any other device, your smartphone also needs proper space to operate. Overheating is one of the consequences of unavailability of adequate ventilation. Up to a certain temperature, your smartphone heats slowly but after a threshold is crossed, the heating becomes accelerated. A good device monitoring app will keep the temperature in check and you’ll know when to take a break to keep your phone cool.
4. Intense Use and Multitasking
Multiple processes running in background will do more harm than benefit. Leaving unnecessary processes running will not only make your smartphone lag but also heat it up. It is wise to use some RAM device management apps like CCleaner.
I have done an article on Android cleanup tools with a listing along with pros and cons, you can consider it as a reference.
5. Continuous Use
Give your Android a break. Powering off your smartphone once on regular intervals will prevent accumulation of useless stuff and will keep your phone running smoothly.
You can set up your phone to turn off automatically. For this go to settings>> Scheduled Power On & Off and set the timings.
