Fix Over Heating and Battery Drain Issue On Galaxy S20 series devices

It’s quite possible that due to the warm environment or any background running applications or any software bug or any third-party app issue or the physical battery issue can cause the overheating or battery draining unexpectedly. So, it’s recommended to check and apply all of the common and possible fixes on your device.

  1. First of all, make sure that your phone battery is physically not damaged or any liquid doesn’t spill over the battery internally.
  2. Turn off all the network connections like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G/4G mobile data and check whether the issue is fixed or not.
  3. Go to the device Settings > Location and turn it off. If the location is enabled on your phone, it will unnecessarily track all of your activity via the system or via any apps and drains battery juice a lot.
  4. Turn on the Airplane mode and reboot your device. Wait for a couple of seconds and then turn off the Airplane mode. We assume it will help as some times the system glitch or network connectivity issue can occur this issue.
  5. Close all the background running apps completely on your device from the multitasking tab.
  6. Go to the Settings menu > Tap on Battery and check which apps are drinking the higher battery juice and do accordingly. If any app isn’t necessary, just uninstall or disable it.
  7. Check whether all the apps or games are running on the latest version. Head over to the Google Play Store > Tap on the Hamburger icon menu > Tap on My apps & games > Tap on Update all option. OR you can update apps individually as well.
  8. Next, check for the software update (One UI) on your Samsung Galaxy S20 series device. If the latest firmware version is available, download and install it.
  9. Try to charge the battery from the stock or original charger (adapter, USB cable) and make sure to plug the charger to a working power outlet.
  10. You can also decrease the brightness level on your device by pulling down the notification panel. Make sure that the Auto-Brightness option is enabled all the time.
  11. As the Samsung Galaxy S20 series devices feature AOD (Always-On Display), you can turn it off for an hour or so to check out whether the battery draining gets slow or not.
  12. Don’t use the smartphone even for a longer calling while charging it. Otherwise, the device will overheat and reduces battery health as well.
  13. As these days, the stock system and its services require a lot of background data, the device may get slightly warm which is a normal thing.
  14. Heat is the enemy of battery health and performance. Try to maintain the heat level of the device by reducing the usage of the device in direct sunlight or inside the car, etc.
  15. Finally, you can do a Factory Reset your phone. Some times, it can also fix some of the system or app-related glitch or cache issues completely.
