How to cool down a Galaxy S6 that’s overheating?

It’s always good to be proactive when it comes to overheating by knowing what causes it and then modifying your behavior around this:

1.If your phone starts heating up rapidly even when it’s not being used you will need to turn it off and keep it off until it cools down. If its laggy and will not allow you to power down simply Hold down Power+ Home button and volume down at the same time which will force a power down.If the device has a removable battery then pull it out.

2. Always power off or restart your phone at least once every few days.

3. Close background apps that are not being used.

4.Clear cache of Apps that are getting laggy and causing the system to hang. You can also clear data but be careful not to lose your game progress or app data.

5. Take a break at intervals when playing Games to allow the phone to cool down.

6. Uninstall any app that’s outdated or does not get regular updates these can cause conflicts with Android thus the heating up. I have also found poorly written apps to be especially good at causing overheating.

7.Keep all your Apps up to date.

8.Uninstall all apps that are not being used.

      Not sure whats happening there, I guess seeing that when you have mobile data on it drains your battery faster as the extra power is needed to the wireless radio that allows for mobile data. This may also be related to your network as well as I don’t have that particular issue.
