Is there something wrong with my Samsung mobile device if it often gets hot?
No, the generation of heat from your Samsung phone or tablet does not suggest it is faulty.
Samsung’s devices can get hot to the touch after running for a long time and/or when running more power-intensive applications. This is normal and should not affect your device’s lifespan or performance. The device may also get hot when charging, and if the battery gets hotter than usual the charger may stop automatically.
It is recommended you update the software on your device regularly as such updates can enhance your device’s performance and help reduce its operating temperature. This can be done through the Settings menu on most phones and tablets.
