Android Device Overheating – What to Do

Is your Android phone too hot to hold? Does it burn your skin when it’s in your pocket? Android device overheating is nothing new. It’s been around since smartphones were invented.

How come it hasn’t been fixed yet? Because overheating, more so than a problem, is a symptom of a deeper issue. It can be a hardware issue or an app issue. Whatever it is, you need to get to the bottom of it. Otherwise, it’s not just your fingers that will get burned, but your pocket too.

What Makes Android Devices Overheat

There’s no simple cause to Android device overheating. Android runs plenty of apps in the background that tax both CPU and WiFi resources and could potentially raise the temperature of the device. Also, it’s not optimized for one device only like iOS is for the iPhone. It works with a wide range of devices that use different hardware and, as can be expected, is more susceptible to compatibility issues.

But there are other, more practical and easily identifiable causes that can lead to device overheating on Android. And these have to do with how you use your device and what apps (and how many) you run on it.

Here are some of the leading causes that lead to device overheating:

Other factors that could contribute to overheating are covers or cases with poor air ventilation. Keeping your phone in your pocket or exposing it directly to the sun can also increase its temperature.

How to Fix an Overheating Android Device

If your Android device is constantly hot, it could be because of one or more of the factors above. But whatever the cause, you should be able to get to the bottom of the problem without burning your fingers in the process.

At the end of the day, Android device overheating doesn’t have to become a problem. If you take measures to control it, it will only be a symptom that you can keep in check.

Still, keep in mind that it’s not normal for your device to overheat. There’s nothing inherently wrong with Android that causes overheating. Choose your apps carefully and follow the suggestions we’ve shared with you.
