Question [Q] Xperia V - Starting heating up too much on moderate use since last couple of days

I have a 6 month old Xperia V - in absolutely pristine condition, moderately used.

Never faced any issues.

But since the last 2-3 days, the phone gets heated up too much on almost no use and gets slow/lags.

Sample usage when the phone is heating up:
- Listening some songs on earphones / speaker
- playing simple games like candy crush in parallel
- 3g data turned on / wifi turned on

I don't think that the battery is the issue. Battery health is good.

Any idea how to find the root cause.

i did update some apps from play store a few days ago:
- FB
- FB messenger
- Yahoo mail
- Candy Crush

Kindly help. <worried>

Running on stock 4.1.2 JB.
Never Rooted the phone.

You will need to clear your background apps once in a while. Or a reboot would help. Hope I helped.

Yes. of course did that. Rebooted. Killed apps using 'Clean Master'
Tried the basics.
My usage is also not very memory consuming.

My guess is it is either one of these apps consuming high memory or CPU after being updated or phone searching for network continuosly??

Any good diagnostic feature / app which I can use to find what's causing it when the phone gets heated up?

It is getting heated up very fast suddenly.

Have you checked the wakelock? I think the heat is because the screen.. If you play games too long it can gets the screen hotter, the cpu get hotter also because the heat from the screen.. It can make the cpu slow because thermal sensor active to reduce the heat..
Reduce heat = reduce performance = cool the cpu
