When you leave your smartphone to charge overnight, smartphone starts heating up once it’s charged fully. Also, overnight charging affects the efficiency of your smartphone battery. This may be the case in some smartphones but, even if your smartphone doesn’t get heated while charging, you should avoid overnight charging.

To avoid this, take breaks every 45 minutes while playing games. Don’t watch videos continuously for more than 3 hours.

Avoid keeping your smartphone in direct sunlight. Heat from sunlight may tend to warm your mobile even more. The smartphone’s normal processing power and heat received from the sunlight are bound to heat up the phone.
Use original batteries only
Using duplicate batteries or third-party batteries may not suit your smartphones every time. These batteries tend to get heated while charging.
