Phone overheating Issue

How to keep your phone from overheating

With the rapid development of hardware, mobiles are becoming increasingly powerful, almost as much as PC. However, it brings users another problem: overheating. So, let’s talk how to avoid it and speed up your phone.

There are so many contributing factors, but generally speaking they can be classified into two categories: software and hardware.


Background apps are never truly closed

Because of the lack of standards and regulations, apps in Android mobile phones are never truly closed. When users tap home button and go back to home screen, those apps just go into background and continue to operate. Thus, the processors will have to hold more apps than you can imagine. So it is understandable that overheating happens from time to time.

One app activates another

Due to the same reason as before, when a specific app in you mobile is launched, it may activate others. Sometimes of the same kind and sometimes even totally unrelated ones. In short, the more apps you have, the more apps your phone will have to run. A single spark can start a prairie fire.

Some apps start on their own

For some apps, even if you only do something remotely related with them, they will start on their own. You can check how apps are on the background right after when you start your device.

Network and positioning in background

For some apps, they have a large number of accessibilities and therefore, they will be able to update themselves, launch positioning activities without notice, just to name a few. And it will be even worse if users have rooted their phone. In this case, they basically can do anything they want.

Design flaws of apps

To promote their products, developers are so eager that their apps might have a series of flaws. In some cases, the apps will run in background and push processor to work all the time.


Better hardware

With better screen of high resolution, powerful CPU, increasingly more RAM, it is understandable power consumption is getting worse and thus overheating.

Poor heating dissipation

A series of factors are contributing to the poor heating dissipation, including design flaw of the phone (material, space, etc.), external factors (high temperature, enclosed environment, protective containment), and using phone while recharging (or use unqualified cables).

User habits

When users play games on mobile phone for a long time, and apps that will frequently connect to Internet, location, calling, video, flashlight, the phone will work at full load, leading to overheating.
