Suffering from smartphone overheating problem?
Almost everyone now-a-days uses a smartphone. No matter what type of smartphone it is: android, ios or windows, it always comes up with one common problem: overheating. So today we present a brand new article to let you know how you can prevent smartphone overheating.
Here are the prime reasons your smartphone might be overheating for:
Processor is the heart of the phone. It does the same thing for your smartphone as your heart does for your body. When the processor runs the electrons within it produces heat. So when you are not actively using your phone it will produce less heat. On the contrary, it will definitely produce more heat when you’re actively using it. This produced heat is felt on the phone body.
When you are downloading data at a stretch, your phone is likely to overheat during this time. So when you feel that your smartphone overheating, you just put it idle for a couple of minutes. Also you should stop apps that are running in the background. In android versions Kitkat and Lollypop this task can be easily done.
Smartphone is almost always used as an internet device. And when you’re browsing internet from your phone, you may not get equal signal strength at all places. Your phone has to work more at places where signal is weak. As a result it easily gets overheated at those places. So a good practice is that you can use signal booster at your household or office to get stronger signal. Thus you can get rid of smartphone overheating.
Day by day smartphones are getting slimmer, but their batteries are hardly improved with course of time. As a result the phone gets easily overheated when it is put on charge or constantly used for a long period of time. And then this overheating is felt on the body of the phone.
Recently some smartphone companies are emphasizing on batteries. They are producing the ones with greater capacity and quality. If you found such one, you should go for it. I myself am planning to switch to a phone-brand that would provide me with greater capacity of battery. The ‘battery’ thing is surely a great trick to get rid of smartphone overheating problem.
When to get warned of smartphone overheating problem?
Every smartphone gets heated more or less. Just because it gets heated doesn’t mean that you’re in trouble. Normally every phone gets heated up to 35-37 degree Celsius when is in use. If your phone gets heated to the same level in stand-by mode, then something is surely wrong with your phone.
Measures to take to cool down your phone
If you are suffering from smartphone overheating problem, then you should take the following measures to get rid of this problem.
Do not use your phone while it is in charge. Don’t play games or watch videos during that time. If your phone doesn’t get good network then it is likely to heat up. So try to stay in a good network coverage, or use a network booster device. If you can’t get in touch with good network, then put your phone in flight mode, it will cool down in a couple of minutes.
Have unnecessary apps in your phone?
If you have unnecessary or not-so-important apps in your phone, then get rid of those. As a result of this action you will be able to reduce background activity in your phone. Also from time to time manually stop all background apps activity. A constantly running internet connection can heat up your phone to a high level. So should you suffer from smartphone overheating problem, you can try stopping internet connection in your phone.
When you have used your phone for a long time and now feel that it has overheated, you can restart/reboot it. When you decide to download something, make sure that your phone-battery has enough charge. Downloading on a low-charge battery can easily overheat your phone and the battery too gets stressed due to this action. Keep the ram and the cache of your phone clear.
Use a good-quality cover for your phone
Be sure to use a good cover or back-cover for your phone so that it can easily absorb any heat generated. Do not use wifi or provide hotspot from your phone without urgency. Do not use multiple apps at the same time. Get rid of minimized apps that you won’t use soon. Update your necessary apps once in a while. If your phone-ram and processor are of small size, then you should not update your apps frequently. Avoid using cheap and duplicate batteries and chargers for your phone.
If your phone doesn’t support high resolution games/videos, it will slow down while you play one such; it could even hang frequently. Then you should avoid playing such games/videos, because the ram or the processor or both don’t support those things.
Get your phone serviced by good/certified technician
After getting your phone serviced if you find that it is getting overheated frequently, then you should see the technician again. And try to get the servicing done only by expert/certified/authorized technicians. After buying a smartphone if you feel that it is overheating quite often, then you should see the retailer and have the phone replaced.
Ensure good heat-transmission for your phone. Do not keep/put it in a place crowded by other active hardware like PC, router, AC, refrigerator etc. Keep it in a spacious place. If you keep it in your pocket for a long time, then be sure to stop all unnecessary background apps. When your phone is fully charged, disconnect it from the charger. Avoid the practice of charging it all night long.
