Answer 1: Check If It Is an OEM Issue

One of the most common reasons why your Android device might be overheating is a manufacturing fault. It means an error by the manufacturer led to your phone getting fitted with a faulty microchip that isn't power-efficient and starts overheating without much processing strain put on it.

A smartphone might overheat because of battery issues overlooked by OEMs too. Remember the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 devices from a few years ago. Those devices were deemed hazardous and were banned on airlines. Samsung recalled the Galaxy Note 7 worldwide and permanently halted production of the smartphone the very next day.

In such situations there is not much you can do as a consumer except go online and post your rants.

But many phones even without any manufacturing defects could still heat up. That’s what we are going to provide a fix for.

Answer 2: Close Unused Apps

Another reason why your phone might be overheating is that you have too many apps opened in the background. These apps consume phone resources such as CPU power, mobile data, and RAM even if not actively used. The Android phone starts heating up if these resources get put under stress.

An easy fix is to close all open apps by opening the open apps tab and tapping close all.

Answer 3: Limit the Number of Apps That Can Run In the Background

Speaking of unused background apps, you can make your smartphone run cooler by limiting background processes to limit the number of apps that run in the background.

·   Open Developer Options in the settings section of your Android device.

·   Swipe up to find the Apps Tab.

·   Turn on don't keep activities to close every app as soon as you exit the app.

·   You can also tap on Background Process Limit to limit the number of apps that run in the background.

·   I suggest running a max of 1 process for the most optimum results.

Answer 4: Check for Spy Apps

You may be targeted by spyware if your phone gets slow and hot. It is impossible to detect if your phone got affected by stealth spy apps for Android without root since they do not show up in the installed apps list. There are several commercially accessible apps in the market. You should familiarize yourself with the programs listed here to ensure that you are safe from these stealth spy apps for Android without root devices: https://xnspy.com/top-10-android-spy-apps.html

Because they function in stealth mode, some high-end Android espionage apps do not appear in the app tray or running apps list. XNSPY, for example, does not appear in the open apps list but continues to remotely monitor the smartphone. While the world is divided on the morality of using such apps, there is no denying that these surveillance software have some good sides to it. They can be used for creating safe digital spaces by allowing parents or employers to keep an eye on their children and workers from afar.

Although it might appear to be a daunting task, but Xnspy and other similar apps can get removed if you factory reset your device. Be sure to back up your phone data before factory resetting it. The change is permanent and while removing Xnspy from the device, it will also wipe all the stored photos, videos, and apps from it.

By limiting the number of background apps running on my phone, I was quickly able to cool down my phone and prevent further heating
Go to the battery tab in your phone and see which apps are consuming it most. Tap the app and force stop them individually.
Another thing to mention, turn off mobile data when you’re not using the Internet. 4G signals heavily consumes battery which can cause the phone to heat up
If you do not know what’s causing your phone to heat up, chances are you have a spy app installed on your phone.
You have to be careful when dealing with spy apps
