Why does your phone get hot?
Your phone’s internal temperature is based on the temperature of its environment. If your phone gets too hot, it can experience problems like battery drain and forced shutdown. There’s also the chance that your phone will not restart if it was forced to shut down due to overheating.
How to fix android / ios overheating issue | keeps freezing or not responding
#1: Let the device cool off
Galaxy Note10+ overheating may occur if you’ve been using your device for heavy tasks like gaming or video streaming without rest for an extended period. What you need to do in any of these situations is to stop whatever you’re doing and don’t use the phone for at least 30 minutes. Make sure that you close the app and let the phone to cool down.
#2: Turn off unused apps on your phone.
Open, unused apps running in the background cause your phone to work harder, which in turn causes it to heat up. The solution is super simple – on an iPhone, for example, all you have to do is press your home button twice and swipe the apps away.
#3:Turn your phone to airplane mode.
Airplane mode allows you to continue to use basic functions on your phone, but turns off other non-essentials that can take a toll on your battery.
#4:Take your case off.
If your phone is overheating, your case isn’t helping. Taking the case off will allow the phone’s heat vents to do their job fully without being blocked, allowing your phone to cool down quicker.
#5: Forced reboot
Forcing your Galaxy Note+ to reboot is another way to sometimes fix this type of problem. This can work if the cause of the problem is a temporary bug that causes the system to freeze or become unresponsive. If you haven’t tried this yet, be sure that you do it this time.
#6: Reset app preferences
- Open Settings app.
- Tap Apps.
- Tap on More settings at the upper right (three-dot icon).
- Select Reset app preferences.
- Restart your Phone and check for the problem.
