Even if you put it in the freezer: what to do with the phone if it overheats quickly

Smartphones often become victims of high temperatures, which lead to rapid overheating and insufficient performance of the gadget. Many users complain about this problem, especially on hot days, when the phones can get hot in the hands even with normal use.

In material USA today told what to do with the phone if the battery starts to heat up quickly. It is worth listening to these recommendations.

How to cool down a smartphone when it is overheating

First of all, if you notice that the battery of your smartphone has started to heat up a lot, stop using it. Put it in a cool place out of direct sunlight. Even in such situations, it is necessary to remove the case so that the gadget can “breathe”.

The next step — dim the display and turn off apps running in the background. It is best to switch the gadget to “airplane mode” so that many functions are limited and it can cool down faster.

What you should never do is put your smartphone in the freezer. At first glance, this may seem very attractive, but this method will only harm your mobile device. Severe temperature changes can damage its internal components.

You can't submerge the phone in water either, even if it's waterproof. You should not take any chances, as this is a fragile piece of equipment and should be handled with care.

It is best to turn off the smartphone and forget about it for 20-30 minutes so that it can cool down and fully recover. In the heat, to avoid overheating, try to use your gadget as little as possible.
