Phone gets warm: Nokia Lumia 810

Symptoms

You may experience the phone getting warm when in use or the battery life is shorter than expected.

 

 

 

Cause

The Nokia Lumia might get hot when multitasking, charging or having several applications running in the background simultaneously. To prevent from overheating, the phone might start closing applications and background tasks and in rare cases eventually the phone will be switched off.

 

The Nokia Lumia has a built-in thermal control system to monitor and control the phone temperatures. To prevent overheating, the phone might start lowering display brightness, data connection speed, pausing charging or closing applications in the background. This is common for most high-end modern smartphones, and the phone will cool off soon again.
