I have heard many people claiming the fact that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 is the phone that all Note 7 users have been actually waiting for, so yes, the Korean company did a surprising thing this time. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is powered by the Snapdragon 835 and has no less than 6GB RAM inside it and even if the new processor is not really known to have any heating issues, owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 have frequently complained about the device overheating after using it for a few hours.
The very same case applies to when it’s left in the heat for a long period of time. Android basically gets stuck somewhere in its processes and heats up the phone. If you leave your handset idle, the new Doze Mode in Android kicks in to put unnecessary apps and data network to sleep. However, if even in such cases your Galaxy Note 8 continues to heat up, then these tips are perfect for you:
How to Fix Note 8 Heating Issues:
- Remember that a third-party app might cause this heating issue, but you have to make sure that this is also your case. Therefore, press the Power Touch and hold the Power off until the Reboot to Safe Mode appears then restart.
