Ever had that experience where your smartphone gets so hot you think it’ll explode? You are eventually left wondering if it’s a phone issue, a battery problem, or if it’s just a sign you need to get a new device. The truth is, there are certain things that can cause that and there are things that can be done to prevent your phone from steaming up.
Here are some of the major reasons your phone gets really hot and what you can do about; Out-Dated Operating System This is one of the major reasons why your Smartphone over heats so much, let’s assume you are running an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system in 2017; where we have phones running on a 7.1 Nougat operating systems and applications such as Snapchat, Whatsapp among others are issuing app updates all the time. With such extra features, you are likely to experience your device getting hot once in awhile when you run the application. You should also know that some apps have been developed or updated to run on the latest operating system.
Several Background Apps
Another major problem with devices in this time and age is we tend to install any app that is said to be a trending, in the process, we find our devices filled with several unused apps. From my interaction with people, I have come to understand or notice that out of all the number of apps we install on our phones, we only use a handful of these installed apps leaving the rest accumulating space and background data on the phone. Ever wondered why your device memory gets filled up and gets hot unusually? Well, most people do a quick restart and it helps to a point, but the best advice would be to delete/uninstall any unwanted app to save both space and increase processing speed.
