3. Don’t play Games while charging and don’t use:
If you are a heavy gamer and heavy smartphone user then, the heating or overheating issue is very common on your phone. And if you are using and playing games while charging, then you are doing so unfairly with your phone.
Please, don’t use your phone, and don’t play games while charging. Charging is also a processing unit, and gaming is also. So, when you play games while charging, you are forcing your phone to take more RAM in your phone.
4. Don’t Play Games for a long time:
If you are a heavy gamer or pro gamer and play games for a very long time on this phone. Although, this phone is capable enough to run heavy multiplayer games like PUBG mobile, COD mobile, and free fire. But, the processor of this phone is not optimized.
Even though this is an upgraded processor and for day-to-day usage, this processor is good, but not for heavy gaming. So, please restrict yourself to playing heavy games.
5. Control In using of Phone:
As I mentioned above that this phone is capable of normal usage and not that good for gaming, and that same thing also applies to this scenario.
If you are a heavy user and mostly use phones outdoor, then this phone can create some overheating issues. So, what is the reason?
The reason is the processor is not well optimized and the brightness lever is 1200 Nits, which is very bright though.
So, try to be useless.
6. Stop Background Running Apps:
We have many apps on our phones some apps are silently consuming unnecessary data, storage, and RAM in our phones and that leads to unexpected heating issues on our phones.
So, please find which app is consuming more RAM and storage in your phone and disable the background running data.
7. Try to clear RAM:
Having apps in the background or in RAM also leads to heating issues in your phone. We use many apps on our phones and forget to close them, and they still keep running in the background.
And those apps take RAM and processing power, it’s a very small thing that we usually missed. But, they affect our phones.
8. Delete Unusual Apps:
We use many apps on our phones, some are useful and some are not. And we forget to uninstall those apps from our phones. And those apps also create so many types of problems.
Those apps take up much more space and create junk on our phones. And that leads to heating issues in our phones.
So, please identify those unusual apps which are available on your phone and remove them. Now, your phone’s storage can take an open breath.
9. Remove Large Files:
Sometimes we download large and extra-large files on our phone, but most of the time we kept them in our phone memory rather than keeping them on an external SD card or another hard drive.
And those extra files take up much more space in our phone, due to less storage and junk your phone gets overheated.
So, please either transfer them to another disk from internal storage or remove them, if they are already used. Because sometimes we also download some viruses with those files and we could not know.
10. Use the best network and network area:
If you are living in an area where the network connection is not good, or if you are using that SIM card company whose network connection is not good in your area, then most probably due to frequent network shifting you can face heating issues.
So, you can not change your living area for just a SIM card, but you can change your SIM company. If after changing the SIM card see if the issue gets fixed or not. If not then jump to the next method.
11. Update all Apps:
