5 essential phone cooling tips 

  1. The first and foremost thing you should consider is removing your smartphone case while charging the device in summer. The smartphone tends to heat when kept on charging due to today's fast-charging technology, therefore, removing the phone case will allow the device to maintain the heat. 
  2. During summer, try using the minimum display brightness to maintain an appropriate temperature. With high brightness, you may experience extreme device heat and it may also affect the performance. 
  3. If you are outdoors, avoid using your smartphone in direct sunlight.  Find a shade when outdoors to use your smartphone with limited brightness and avoid sunlight. 
  4. Avoid extended smartphone usage or play games in a hot environment. Playing heavy games requires maximum hardware usage which results in overheating of the smartphone. Therefore, make sure to play games indoors and avoid extended hours of gameplay.
  5. Do not keep your smartphone in your pockets as it traps the air circulation and you may experience a slight heat than usual. Make sure to keep your smartphone in an open area and do not block the natural airflow.
