How To Cool Down An Android Device

1466141599_tmp_1

Android smartphones are normally loaded with apps. These applications take up a considerable amount of space and are often left running in the background, even if they are unused. This causes the phone to over-heat and could lead to serious defects and many a time, malfunctioning of the device as well. It is imperative that the phone be brought back to optimal temperature immediately to avoid any damage and loss of data or important documents from the phone.

Applications

The temperature of the device can be controlled by an application as well. The app in question is EaseUS Coolphone and it offers several ways to wave a metaphorical fan in front of your phone’s face. You can tap the quick cool button on the app’s opening screen, via the app’s one-button widget or from the app’s entry in the notification drawer. After a few moments of scanning, you can choose to apply the changes suggest by the app.

Another application that can be used is Coolify. Coolify is an app that can be used to help prevent overheating on your Android devices. By constantly measuring the temperature values of the device, it provides useful information that helps you maintain an optimal internal temperature and also extend the life of your battery.

Coolify works by tweaking some system values, such as VM, to optimize your device to keep it cool. By doing this, the app can optimize the processes having to do with the processor and battery so that they’re performed more efficiently and don’t generate as much heat as they usually do.

In practice, Coolify does provide a good solution for monitoring and managing how hot your device gets. While newer smartphones are definitely starting to concentrate on providing hardware options that focus on generating less heat and becoming more efficient, Coolify provides a practical solution for those that do not. No longer will you start to feel the heat of your device when you’re playing your favourite mobile game.

Avoid Stacking

Phones must be separated from other gadgets. Keeping your phone, tablet and computer stacked up might help you keep track of your devices, but if one running electronic device is stacked on top of another running electronic device, overheating is more likely and will adversely affect the functioning of the smartphone in question.

Update Apps

It is important to keep applications updated, as many updates tend to come with bug fixes. This improves efficiency of the apps and thus reduces chances of heating. This will ensure that the temperature of the phone remains at an optimal level and that the application performs satisfactorily as well.

Delete Unused Apps

It is extremely important to delete redundant applications like ringtones, games, backgrounds, or apps that you never ever use. Delete apps and functionality you’re not using and you’ll reduce your phone’s workload. This will ensure a lesser load on the phone and the temperature of the phone will always be in the safe-zone.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
