4. Turn off Networks and Hotspots:

When network connection and hotspots are being used, the CPU of our Android phone has to work harder, especially when there’s a low network signal. Thus, the battery will reduce faster and gets hotter. To cool down Android battery, we’d better turn off 4G/LTE/3G/2G network and Wi-Fi hotspots when we are not using it.

5. Set GSM as Network Mode:

Avoid using WCDMA or LTE when your Android is getting hot. Choose “GSM” mode because it receive better network signal and reduce the load of CPU.

6. Avoid Using faulty battery or charger:

Faulty battery and charger will be very dangerous because it gets super hot when you are using your phone or charging. Even though it is not a faulty charger/battery, if you use a quick charger for an Android device that doesn’t supports quick charge, it is very likely that the battery will explode because of overheated. So, use original equipment manufacturer for your Android phone and never use your phone when you are charging it.
