Mexico City. Almost everyone overheated the phone, especially after a very long conversation. But what other reasons can cause the phone to become so hot that it even stops working until it cools down? Unfortunately, there is no single answer to this question, therefore Avast, the world leader in cyber security products, shares the most common reasons why mobile phones become hotter and what the user can do to prevent this from happening.
It is important to note that all the phones can become a little hot, and in fact they do it from time to time. But this becomes a problem when the phone is warming up to the point where you can not touch or start doing strange things and this can happen for various reasons. Here are the reasons why:
Play too much Like on a computer, playing on a smartphone takes the CPU and GPU to its limits, which causes it to generate a large amount of heat. Playing from time to time does not affect the phone, but frequent playback sessions are often used for frequent breaks.
There are too many applications in the background. When Gmail is minimized to see Facebook, it is not actually deactivated, but is still active in the background. The same applies to all applications that are minimized. The more apps run in the background, the more the system needs to work to keep them running.
See many videos Yes, unfortunately it is harmful to the state of the phone as playing marathons. In fact, everything that keeps the screen for an extended period of time and uses the GPU on the phone causes the device to heat up.
Problems of applications and the operating system. Errors of some applications may cause overheating of the phone or make strange things, and the same happens with the operating system of the phone.
The biggest challenge: malware. Although any of the mentioned problems can harm the phone, none of them is harmful as malware. Because malicious applications tend to be fragments of the code without optimizing, they monopolize the processor and memory of the phone, which suffocates and generates a lot of heat.
Once you identify the culprit, it's time to cool the phone
Firstly, never put your phone in the freezer, there are better options:
Deactivate the application. If you notice that the phone warms up after activating a particular application, it is recommended that you first close it by minimizing it, and then go to Settings> Applications> Launch Applications> [La aplicación que deseas cerrar] and tap Stop or Strength stop.
Remove the cover The phone case can act as insulation, which can cause heat warming. It is advisable to remove it so that the phone cools. If the problem persists, the phone should be used without the case.
Use your phone in low drain mode. In Android, look for the battery saving mode.
Disable unnecessary settings. Disabling applications that are not needed can help stop overheating and save battery power. Better still, activate the airplane mode when the phone is not used.
Removing Trash Trash are not just non-used applications, but also unnecessary data for which useful applications are collected. Avast Cleanup for Android can help with this.
Reduce brightness or activate adaptive brightness.
Update your apps. The more optimized the application, the less resources will be used, which reduces the likelihood that the phone will warm up.
Change the charging cable. Sometimes, the wrong charging cable may cause a fault in the charging unit. If the heat is concentrated mainly around the cable connector, it may be ok to change the cord.
How to prevent phone overheating
It is recommended to start installing the antivirus. Powerful cyber security software, such as Avast Free Antivirus, blocks malicious software on the spot and alerts you when there is an infected website you are visiting. Follow this advice to protect your hardware and your security.
In the same way, remember all the previous tips, because if the phone is carefully treated, it does not have to fail.
