Samsung Galaxy S6 gets hot –Solution

The Samsung Galaxy S6 can be very hot in the area next to the camera while using apps, or during a call. The cause of the heat development is the processor, which is located near the camera on the back of the smartphone and emits heat when in use.

The processor of smart phones can run hot for different reasons.

  • Exposure to an app such as games, browser, Youtube etc.
  • Exposure to an Android System App
  • defective battery

We want to show you a tip, with which the heat problem of the Samsung Galaxy S6 can be solved, if the cause is a faulty app.

The error with the heat may occur after a firmware update, for example.

Such errors will be rectified by a Wipe Cache partition.

We want to explain to you how this works:

Switches off your Samsung Galaxy S6 by long pressing on the Power On / Off button. Now you have to pressand hold the key combination:

  • Power On / Off
  • Volume up
  • Home button

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 vibrates once, let the power on/ off button go, but keep the other two keys from the key combination pressed until a menu appears on the display.

Now mark the entry "Wipe Cache partition" with the volume down key. With the Power On/ Off button, the process will start. This usually takes only a few seconds. Then the previously displayed menu reappears.

Now selects the first entry with "Reboot system now" and executes the command again with pressing the power button.

You have now successfully completed a Wipe Cache Partition. This should now be the solution or at least the improvement for the heat your smartphone produces.

Didnt change the heat issue at all. This is my second galaxy 6 with issues. I think it's junk.

At least it didn't erase my data or programs. Didn't notice any difference in temperature though.

Adrienne, push the 3 buttons while the phone is OFF. It should work. I don't know if this helps. I will put my phone to the test tomorrow at work in 94 degrees heat.

I can not get this to work. I press the buttons but it never vibrates and it does not give me a menu. Any help would be great.
