Here Are Some Reasons Why Your Smartphone Gets Hot And Drain Battery Quickly

Leaving your phone directly to the sun, is not the only way your phone can get hot. Moreover, we are no longer in the summer and this doesn’t mean your phone cannot get hot when using it. There are many reasons and problems causing the phone to drain battery.

The main truth is that, there’s no true fact on why phone gets hot because many things causes it but it’s well known that metal devices usually get hot than glass devices by heat conductivity.

We all use removable or non-removable battery and it can cause big problem to the smartphone, if it gets worse. It’s not safe to hold hot smartphone on your hand and at the same, still stay confortable pressing it.

It is normal for your phone to get hot a little when it does multiple tasks
If your phone gets hot above normal degree, there’s no cause for alarm. If it persists while running game or heavy applications, it’s still normal. After closing the apps for some time, and it still gets hot, then you can worry.

There are many reasons why your phone gets hot and they are: multi-tasking, having a too tight case (pouch), installing an unofficial ROM or using a charger in poor condition. It is not safe to charge your phone with a bad charger.



1. Unofficial ROM – For the installation of an unofficial ROM, it could possibly affect some part of the code which will make the processor not work well. It is recommended you install the official ROM or any other one you trust that won’t result in a problem.

2. Using a too tight pouch or case can cause your smartphone to get hot – Even though our phone doesn’t have cooling systems or fan, it does have an air vent, charging port and loudspeaker. Our phone will get hotter if all these are covered with case or pouch.

3. Leave your phone in dry places and don’t use it while charging – It may sound funny, but we have to be careful of where we put our phone. If you are used to placing your phone on top of the computer, on the television, under the bed lamp or on appliances like refrigerator or microwave definitely the temperature of your phone will increase and much more if it is in charge.

Generally, it is not advisable to use your phone while charging, since it will delay the charging and also increase the temperature which will put your phone at high risk.

Tutorial On How to Turn Off Safe Mode on Any Android Device

This tutorial will guide you how to Turn Off Safe Mode on your device.
Android device will enter Safe Mode when its operating system has become corrupt, or when one or more third-party applications have caused the device to malfunction. To turn off Safe Mode on your Android, you can try restarting your device, uninstalling potentially corrupted apps, or backing up your data then wiping and resetting your device.

Restarting Your Device

1. Understand why Safe Mode has been activated. Safe Mode is typically activated because of a serious error with an app, or with because a system function on the device crashed. In Safe Mode, you can't run any apps that didn't come installed on your device. If your device is in Safe Mode, a quick restart is usually enough to fix the problem.

2. Check the Notifications panel. Some versions of Android have a Safe Mode notification that you can tap which will automatically reboot your device and exit Safe Mode. This is the quickest way to get out Safe Mode if you have this option.



3. Press and hold the Power button. When the Power menu appears, select Restart or Power Off. Allow your phone to reboot, or turn it back on after it powers off. Your device should boot normally. If it doesn't, read on.

4. Power the device on with the Power and Volume Down buttons. If your device is still booting into Safe Mode, this button combination may help. Turn your device off again, then press and hold the Power and Volume Down buttons simultaneously. Many users have reported this combination as useful for getting out of Safe Mode.

Note: If your device has a broken Volume key, this could be forcing a boot into Safe Mode every time it starts up. You may need to send your device in for warranty service or attempt to open the device and fix it yourself.

5. Remove the battery from your device (if possible). As long as your device allows you to remove the battery, you can try pulling the battery out to get out of Safe Mode. Power your device down and then remove the battery. Wait at least one minute for the capacitors in the phone to completely discharge. Reinsert your battery and then try turning your device on again.

By reading the article above i hope your problem is solved. Oya send your comments.

How To Successfully Play And Install Psp Games On Android Devices By Using Ppsspp

PPSSPP is one of the most functional PSP emulators available, and you can even use it on your Android device. Keep in mind that in order to run most games at acceptable speed, you'll need a newer Android device. Older devices may be too slow to run games properly. If you have custom firmware installed on your PSP, you can dump your own PSP discs and copy them to your Android device.



Chapter 1....Installing PPSSPP

1. Open the Google Play Store. PPSSPP is a PSP emulator, and can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store. You won't need any additional files or apps (except for games).

2. Search for "ppsspp" in the Store. You'll see several options in the search results.

3. Select the "PPSSPP" option. There is a "PPSSPP Gold" app, but it is functionally identical to the standard version. Download the free version first to see if it works on your device, and then you can purchase the Gold version later if you want to support the developer.

4. Tap "Install" to download and install the emulator. This is the only app you'll need to start playing game files. You don't need to download a BIOS file like you would with other emulators.

Chapter Two... Getting Game Files

1. Download ISO or CSO game files from various sources online. If you don't want to dump your own games, which requires installing custom firmware on your PSP, you can download ISO files from various torrent sites online. Downloading games that you don't own is illegal, so download at your own risk. Simply search your favorite torrent site for the game that you want to download. Games may come in CSO format, which is a compressed ISO file. Both CSO and ISO files will work with PPSSPP.
It will be easier to download these game files using a computer, and then transfer them to your Android device.

See How to Download Torrents for detailed instructions on downloading torrent files on your computer.
Once you've downloaded the games you want to play on PPSSPP, skip down to the next section. Read on if you want to learn how to dump your own game files legally.

2. Install custom firmware on your PSP if you want to dump your own game files. By installing custom firmware on your PSP, you'll be able to create ISO files for any UMD or downloaded game that you own. Installing custom firmware is a fairly complicated process. The process will be described briefly below, but you can see How to Hack a PlayStation Portable for detailed instructions.

3. Update your PSP to version 6.60.

4. Download PRO-C Fix3 on your computer. This is the custom firmware installer for the PSP.

5. Copy the downloaded folders into the GAME folder on your PSP Memory Stick.

6. Run "Pro Update" in the Game menu of your PSP to install the custom firmware.

7. Run "CIPL_Flasher" to make the custom firmware permanent. This will prevent you from having to reload it every time you restart your PSP.

8. Insert the UMD that you want to dump into your PSP. You can convert any UMD disc into an ISO file, which you can then copy to your Android device and play in PPSSPP.
Press the Select button while on the PSP main menu. This will open the special custom firmware PRO VSH menu.

9. Select the "USB DEVICE" option and change it to "UMD Disc." This will make the disc appear on your computer instead of your Memory Stick when you connect the PSP to your computer.

10. Connect the PSP to your computer.Use the USB cable that came with the PSP to connect them.

11. Open the "Settings" menu on the PSP main menu and select
"Initialize USB Connection."
Your PSP will appear connected to your computer. Usually, the correct folder will open automatically. If it doesn't, open Computer/This PC and select the drive that is a jumble of letters and numbers.

12. Click and drag the ISO file from your PSP to your computer. It may take a few minutes for the file to copy. You now have a complete copy of the UMD on your computer in the form of an ISO file.

Chapter 3...Playing Games

1. Connect your Android device to your computer. You'll need to transfer your PSP ISO files onto your Android's storage in order to load them into PPSSPP.

2. Open your Android on your computer. You'll find the Android in your Computer/This PC window.

3. Create a folder called "PSP", then create a subfolder called
"GAME."
This will mimic the same folder structure of your PSP.
Copy your ISO files into the GAME folder on your Android. The copy process will likely take a while to complete.

4. Disconnect your Android from your computer. Once you've copied the ISO files to the PSP/GAME/ folder, you can disconnect the Android from your computer.
Launch PPSSPP. You'll be greeted by the PPSSPP main menu.

5. Tap "PSP" and then "GAME" to see all of your ISO files. All of the game files that you copied from your computer will be listed here.
Tap a game to start it. The game will begin loading, and if your device is powerful enough it will start. You can control the game using the on-screen buttons.
If the game doesn't load, there are two main possibilities: either the game is not supported by PPSSPP (not all are), or your Android device is not powerful enough to run it.
