Android Heating Issues

The world is getting Smarter day by day. We are becoming more and more dependent on our smartphones and tablets, as they seem to become a universal device that you can use to access the information that is so important nowadays. But, when you depend so much on a single piece, you have to be responsible enough that you handle it with equal amount of care. Because when your Android smartphone or tablet heats up that is the time you have hundreds of questions oscillating in your brain.


What’s causing the Over-Heating?
We invest much more when it comes to buying our best buddy-the smartphone. And if issues like overheating would be the story behind everything than we got to think on it.
Some of the issues that result in overheating of the smart device include:

1. Excessive Gaming
This is one thing that manufacturers should have in mind and maybe they will be able to deploy a small cooling fan inside our smart, yet hot devices. Why does it heat up that fast when you’re playing games? Because you’re soliciting the “mother board” of the smartphone or tablet and it pushes electronic inputs at a much faster rate than when you write a message, for example. Playing a game requires a lot of resources from your phone and it represents the most obvious cause for overheating.

2. Continuous Online Browsing
Probably the second most consuming process is the online browsing. First of all, the smartphone or the Android tablet requires either GSM, EDGE, Wi-Fi or 3G connection to display online content. So first of all it has to support the wireless data transfer, then it has to make use of the video resources available to display the information that you need.

3. Old Battery and Inappropriate Use of it
Almost all manufacturers buy the batteries and incorporate them inside but they forget to mention that you need to replace them, as their life cycle varies from 300 to 500 charging cycles. If you drain the battery in 1-2 days, then you should change your battery once in 1-2 years. It’s a good investment and should increase its life and decrease the level of heating, as well try and avoid full discharges and don’t recharge only when your Android gizmo has already gone dead.

4. Stressing Your Gadget while it recharges
There are some of us who are so in love with their digital friends that they can’t leave them be not even when the phone is charging. This causes the phone to overheat and cause issues with the phone.

2. How to Avoid the Over-Heating
The very first step you need to be careful about all are the above enlisted points and avoid repeating the same mistakes.
•          Reduce your gaming obsessions
•          Moderate your online browsing sessions
•          Take care of your battery and leave your Android pal recharge in piece.


1. Disable Unwanted Functions
Be sure to check your Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connections, don’t leave them enabled if you don’t need them as your terminal will keep searching for new networks or other buddies to connect with.

2. Clean Smartphone/Tablet
Dust can infiltrate inside your device through the microphone fan and even infiltrate using the recharging orifice. If you are not sure how to open your Android smartphone or tablet and to pack it back, then run to a phone service nearby and ask them to clean it up.

3. Upgrade

It seems that battery life is being extend year after year, although there are no real plans yet for a real big life cycle and over-heating free pieces. Newer devices have improved operating system and are more optimized which should make them more appropriate for use, thus, cooler and more pleasant in your hand.
