Fix Heating issues on OnePlus Phones: Hardware-oriented Smartphone industry-packed phones rose to fame, ever since Qualcomm & Mediatek started to sell Smartphone processors to manufacturers. Overheating is an issue that comes in the majority of the low-end, mid-range, and high-end phones. The phone processors may rival the PC mechanism and also because most phones do not have enough space for the cooling system.

Every brand wants to make their products slim and light, so that’s why smartphone manufacturers cannot fit a dedicated cooling system in the phones. Manufacturers such as AMD and Intel highly depending on the stock cooling system, but portable devices aren’t lucky in this case.

OnePlus sold millions of phones and accessories globally and millions of consumers are waiting for the upgrade. The existing consumers are not satisfied as the OnePlus 7,8 series heating issues are coming up. The concept of “HEATING” depends on several factors and we cannot blame only the company.

How to Fix Heating issues on OnePlus 6, 7,8 series and Nord

1. Faulty Battery

OnePlus phones are manufactured by Chinese hardware company and the computerized quality test thoroughly checks them for faulty parts. One of my Android devices suffering from intensive heating and the temperature was reaching above 60° without connecting to the charger.

Replaced the defective battery with the original battery from the authorized service center. A faulty battery temperature rises higher, even in idle condition and nothing is running in the background. OnePlus 7th generation phones come with a one-year warranty with an extended warranty option claim the warranty immediately.

Solution: Reach out local authorized service center you can take an apointment online.

2. Third-Party accessory

Always carry a Oneplus USB cable & charging brick along with you. Instead, Every USB-C or USB-B may seem similar to technology, but the functions might differ from one and another. 

By using a third-party USB cable or charging brick can trigger heating and if you use it continuously, then it will impact the charging port. You don’t want to cause chip-level damage and the extensive damage occurs by using it one-time. 

OnePlus recommends using OEM certified charging brick and cable. Remember, even one volt & ampere (6.24 x 1018 charge carriers) can cause chip-level damage.

3. Multiple Applications Running

The android operating system evolved over the years, and RAM management has improved along the way. In modern times, utility applications prefer to run in the background such as Messenger, Twitter, WhatsApp, UPI Payments, Wire payment applications, Shopping apps, and more. 

Google Chrome application runs in the background and it consumes a lot of RAM & resources. Chrome can work up the CPU and it can put a lot of stress on the remaining resources. Combining a few applications running in the background together drastically increases the CPU stress level. 

Connecting to the internet triggers a synchronization process and it connects to Google mail and Social media apps. Transferring large files over the internet to cloud storage builds up a lot of heat inside the phone. OnePlus software developers recommend keeping the sync-on disabled permanently. The official Android developers also recommend keeping Sync-off, when connecting to the internet via Wi-Fi or 4G.

Solution: Close background apps

4. Using While Charging

Be it an Android phone or OnePlus phone, keeping the device busy, while charging does build up heat, and causing malfunction. Overtime usage, while charging a device does impact battery performance and chip-level disaster.

For smoother performance, Android consumers are recommended to turn off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 2G or 4G, and cloud synchronization. Mobile game players purchasing the 7th generation phones, but playing longer cause heating device issues.

Do not presume that using out-of-the-box charging brick & USB cable does not promote overheating. You have to keep in mind that overheating is triggered by using power banks & USB charging as well. Unfortunately, phone consumers cannot install the cooling system on the device.

5. Restart Phone

A small change can bring a big difference, and I believe in the popular saying. OnePlus consumers do not provide enough sleep time for the powerful machine in the smartphone market. Even though the 7th generation OnePlus device might stand out of the crowd, still it requires an hour of sleep. 

The portable machine flows with electricity and it may not require an hour of shut down. However, experts claim that it is a good habit to provide the OnePlus 7, 7 Pro, and 7T edition a quick restart to free up RAM and other aspects of the phone.


An overheating phone should never be ignored by both consumers and service centers because it can lead to an explosion. The previous models of OnePlus already reported an explosion and the new Nord was exploited in a lawyer’s coat in Delhi, So It is recommended to take steps to avoid it.
