Overheating in Mobile devices can be caused due weak signal strength. There isn't much you can do about a poor signal. It is worth checking to see if there are any apps running in the background. If yes then close the running apps if not in use.


What you can do to rectify it :


● As a first aid, the device must be immediately turned off and should be placed  in a well-ventilated area to cool it down.


● If possible, remove the back cover and let the heat escape from the device. Once it has already cooled off, check a software update.
