5 Ways To Fix Overheating On Sprint Epic 4g
1 Check your charger
In most cases, this issue arises when the charger in use is not compatible with your device in particular. Using an original charger or better known as the one with which the device comes pin packed is advisable for use. If by any chance you lose that one or it ends up breaking or faulty, make sure to buy one from a reliable source or store.
2 Reboot your device
It is advised to restart your device if you face this issue. First turn off your phone and then proceed to remove the battery. Allow the battery to cool down as well as your phone and then reinsert it. Switch on your phone again and place it on charge. Hopefully, you will not face this issue again.
3Factory reset your phone
According to the reviews and testimonials to users who took this issue to a Sprint service center it is advised to wipe your device completely and restore it to the state it was in when you newly purchased it. Removing apps and software that tends to weigh down your processor’s speed is the main reason behind why this issue exists.
4 Uninstall unneeded apps
Excess applications overworks the processor and hence allows for it to become overheated during use. You could remove all unnecessary applications and only keep the ones that you absolutely need. Anything else can be deleted as it only increases the load, overheats your device and eats up your memory.
5 Shut Down Apps You Don’t Use
Most people make the big mistake of using apps on their Sprint Epic 4g and then leaving them open after use. That forces your phone to bear more data usage and heavy movement on its self. So directly after you finish using any type of app on the Sprint Epic 4g make sure to shut it down before your device overheats.
