10 Tips to Beat Smartphone Overheating

1 -Avoid leaving your smartphone in a very high-temperature environment, such as leave it in the car during summer or place it in direct sunlight for a long time.

2 -When the device is very hot while charging, disconnect the charger from the device, check and turn off the running application and wait until it cools down before again connecting to the charger.

3 -Always ensure you are using the original cable for charging. Sometimes damage to the cable or duplicate cable causes overheating.

4 -Do not use some application very long time that uses more power. Identify such applications from the battery settings of the device.

5 -Running high-quality, high-power games for a long time will drain your battery very quickly as well as raise the device temperature.

6 -When you are watching a movie or video for a long time set your brightness in average value.

7 -Verify you have updated your operating system to the latest version. Sometimes these updates resolve power issues.

8 -Turn off some features when you not needed such as GPS, Bluetooth, Wireless..etc

9 -Recording video for a long time may lead to high temperature. Ensure no other apps are running in the background while recording a video for a long time.

10 – Ensure the battery is not malfunctioning.  If so, replace the battery
