My phone gets hot when charging or playing games

Smartphones can sometimes get hot when playing play games, listening to music, watching videos, or charging.

This is common and mostly caused when several Apps are running at once, or one App is using a lot of processor power.

Normally there is no need to worry about phones getting a warm while in use as the phone and battery can heat up to 120 Fahrenheit without damage.

However, when your phone becomes unbearably hot and you start having issue with your Apps, then there might be a problem. This might be due to faulty battery, too much charging, or a high workload.

To diagnose this, you can use apps like TempMonitor or Battery Temperature Guard (free) to monitor your device’s temperature.

Both can be downloaded from Google Play Store.

These apps should be able to tell you that your phone’s temp is within normal range.
