Below is a guide for those who have problems with their Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ Plus becoming hot.
Fixing the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ Overheating Problems with These Solutions:
- A third-party application could be the culprit for the Galaxy S20+ Plus’s overheating. To check the issue, hold down the Power button. Next, tap Power off and hold it until you see Reboot in Safe Mode. Finally, tap Restart. The lower left corner should show Safe Mode. If the problem does not persist, it may be caused by a third party app. You can uninstall the app one at a time to find out what caused it or you can go for a factory reset.
- It’s a good idea to clear the cache partition on the Galaxy S20 before you factory reset it. Turn off the Galaxy S20 and then hold the Power, Volume up and Home buttons. Once the Samsung logo appears, with a blue recovery text at its top, release the buttons. You can scroll down to highlight Wipe cache partition, then click Power. After it’s finished, you can use the Volume buttons for reboot system and power to choose it.
