Of course, this isn't the only reason it can overheat and shut down, and in this article we'll explain several reasons that can affect this.

Why is my Samsung overheating?

On many occasions the phones get hot for reasons that can vary, but one of the main ones is that the mobile takes too much, for example when it is used to playing games, as some games are very demanding and these require more resources such as how RAM memory., Processor and graphics, all of these make it hotter than normal.



The same happens when we have many applications open, because if they are not closed they continue to work but remain in the background so they continue to consume resources on the phone. Also, when charging the device it is normal for it to get hot as a lot of power is sent to the battery and it gets hotter when you have the option to fast charging.

There are cases where the battery heating is normal, but if there is overheating which causes the mobile to shut down by itself, you need to look for the problem. A normal cause of heating on your Samsung M10 is that you are using for a long time, playing games or watching videos or movies.

Doing these things on our phone isn't bad, but if we spend a lot of time, the battery, card, and even the screen will quickly heat up if we don't let it sit. Furthermore, another common cause of overheating is the environment it is in ; if it is very hot, it is normal for it to get warm.

So, we have to be especially careful about leaving it exposed to the sun for hours, if we don't want to take the life out of the phone's battery or screen. Another reason for this battery heating occurs when there is a software or Android version update, so you have to make sure it works fine after updating it.



However, there could be more damage; For example, if it is hot in the back while we are charging it , the battery may already have short life. On the other hand, if it is completely hot when we charge it, it could be a problem with the charger or the cable, which can damage the battery of the Samsung M10.

Also remember that if you use your Samsung M10 during charging hours, stay causing excessive consumption of your system, so it could also overheat. These are some of the main reasons your phone gets hot; Now what can you do to fix it?

What happens when the cell phone battery overheats?

There are two possible causes of battery failure, the first is when it has a failure, that is, it is damaged or deteriorated and is broken; as it could have fallen and caused damage. When these problems exist, the battery can run the risk of a short circuit and becomes more widespread, so it can explode. The main cause of battery fire is heat.

While charging the battery, it is possible to create a generation of heat, as if the mobile phone is very hot, a short inside and it should be noted that it's not always the battery's fault.

Why does my mobile only turn off when I still have the battery?

If your phone happens to shut down on its own even when it has a battery on it, chances are that that battery already is damaged , in which case you will have to change it. This problem is common in devices that have been in use for several years and this problem can occur much sooner if you have bad charging habits, like upload it overnight or let it reach zero percent.



Another possible cause could be that there is a fault with the percentage indicator, i.e. it is not calibrated, so it is marking badly.

Wear it for a long time

The use prolonged and constant device it can cause damage to the battery, as it is always functional; just like using it for the time it is charging is serious damage because it does not allow the power to reach the battery.

Configuration problems

Many times it can happen that we do not do the configuration of our equipment well, which affects the performance of your phone in terms of battery, such as we can reduce battery consumption configuring the display and configuring performance.

Software updates

One of the things you can do, too, that can help you with the phone shutdown dilemma, is updating the software; This will greatly help your phone perform better.

Serious damage

What to do when the mobile phone turns off due to overheating?

Many times we leave the phone charging in a very hot area like on the car dashboard, it is something that is very wrong as it may have overheated ,


The best way to cool your equipment is to unplug the charger, remove the cover and battery and put it in a cool place so that it can cool down, that is, never put it in the refrigerator or anything like that, as the sudden changes in temperature and humidity do not feel good.


In this case, it is important to constantly check your phone's battery usage to know which applications consume the most. While it may seem insignificant, it is important to use the original charger of yours Samsung M10 and not others, so that the voltage received by the cellphone is not affected.

As mentioned above, it is also important don't leave your Samsung M10 charging overnight, this could overheat the battery and shorten its life. This is not good for any mobile device, as with so much useless charge the battery becomes saturated and thus overheats and shuts down.

What other things can you do to prevent it from shutting down due to battery overheating? If your phone uses a protective coating, you can take it off to remove the heat they hold. Also, you can put the phone in airplane mode, so that all the processes it is running with the signal are canceled and the phone rests for a while.

If we feel that the phone has a very high temperature, it is better to turn it off for a while, so you can rest from all the use we give it on a daily basis. In that case, that we don't turn it off or turn on airplane mode, It is recommended that you turn off Wi-Fi and mobile data and remove background applications.

If possible, you can also leave your phone idle in a cooler place than outside. Now, if the heating problem persists with these simple solutions, it is best to go to a Samsung technical center.

Optimize mobile resources

It depends on the equipment you use, you can do the following to optimize it.

  • You can reduce the brightness of the screen.
  • Turn off the keyboard vibration or sound.
  • Limit all apps that consume a lot of battery.
  • Activate the battery optimization function.
  • Delete the accounts you are not using.

Remove the lid

One way to help calm down the heating of your gear is to remove the case or housing and place it in the shade, that way the equipment can cool much faster.
