Why does Android Phone/Tablet Becomes Overheated?

The causes for overheating of Android phone can be various. For example:

Overuse of device- Nowadays user is able to run several applications on the device simultaneously in their smartphones. But this can make the phone overloaded and get hot.

A drained battery- Some applications would use a lot of battery, which will not only shorten the service life of the battery but also heat up the smart phone.

Overcharging the device- You need to stop charging the mobile phone when it is fully charged or the redundant energy will make the device heated.

Placing the phone in hot conditions. If you put your phone in sunlight, near the stove or other place in high temperature, it will become heated as well.

How to Cool Down Overheating Android Phone/Tablet

So now we can cool down the overheated Android phone according to the reasons mentioned above. In fact, these are some simple and common tips that really work.

  1. Keep your phone in a cool place

It is a direct means to keep your phone away from high temperature areas and put it in a cool place. You just need to change a location and then you can get a normal phone. Cool doesn’t mean cold place. (And keeping it in Fridge is not at all cool) Experts say its ‘an awful idea’ to keep in fridge since your device runs the risk of collecting moisture, or you might strain the components of phone.

  1. Turn off the device

The second method is to give your phone a much needed break. After running for a long time, the device must be tired and overheated so you can hold down the Power button on it to switch it off. Then wait for a while to cool down the phone. This step works well at most of the time so you try it as well.

    3. Is Your Case Heating Up Your Phone?

Mobile Case may cause heating up- Your case is a common heat factor that many smartphone users overlook. Many cases are constructed from plastic or have a large amount of plastic. Even those made with leather have the same problem: the phone is insulated, keeping heat in and cold out.

For safety reasons, as the phone gets warm (particularly during high-performance tasks), it needs to radiate the heat away, and the case made from an insulated material prevents this. It’s like exercising in a duffel coat.


Removing your phone from the case is a good option, but if you’re uncomfortable with this (perhaps taking extra care to maintain its resale value), then it is not a viable long-term option.

  1. Use two or three applications at once

Applications are the main cause of battery consumption so you need to stop using them when the phone gets hot. Just close the running Apps on your phone and only leave two or three programs work. This could not only solve the Android phone or tablet gets hot issue, but also speed up the device. So, just close the unwanted software on your phone now.

    5. Avoid Use of Third-Party Chargers and Cables

The micro-USB cable-chargers are universal, but that doesn’t mean you should just use any olde cables and chargers for your phone. If your phone overheats while charging, you may look into this aspect.
