Smartphone Heating: How to prevent and cool down phone

Smartphone heating is one of the major problems we are facing these days. The overheating occurs when the phone’s CPU is unable to keep up with the demands. There are several reasons why your smartphone gets heated up.  As the smartphone does not have much ventilation like a PC or Laptop, using it for a long period of time can overheat it. Long hours of continuous gaming or internet browsing increases the workload of the phone’s battery which results in heating up the Phone. Another major reason is the old battery. A battery starts overheating if its lifecycle is almost over.


Here we suggest some methods to prevent Smartphone Heating
