How to fix Moto G7 overheating issues
Before trying to fix the issue, you need to let your phone cool off. Let this be the first thing on your mind when you notice the phone is getting hot. Leave it to cool off completely.
Remove the protective case
If you are using a case or a cover for your phone, remove it. Many cases are made from poor quality materials, and cause the phones to heat up a lot faster. So, remove it and use it without it for a while.
Avoid overcharging your device. Most users noticed overheating issues only when the phone is charging. It is because they leave it to charge a lot longer than it should. Also, use the original charger that came with your device.
Restart your phone
Many apps and many processes always run in the background. These can affect the battery life of your phone and they can also cause overheating. To close them all, you should restart your phone every once in a while. Also, this will boost the memory of your phone and will improve its performance.
