Reasons Why a Phone is Feeze up

There are many reasons why a phone could freeze up. Here are some of the most common reasons why you should find out why your phone is freezing up so that you can fix it before causing permanent damage to your device.

1. Outdated Operating System

A phone’s operating system will over time become full of bugs and other problems that cause the phone to run slower than normal or possibly even freeze up while running certain applications or just while using it in general. This happens because every time an upgrade comes out for the operating system, manufacturers have to pay for a license from Google if they want to use it on their device, meaning that not all devices will get new updates at the same time and this also applies to any bug fixes that come along with the update.

2. Overheating

Smartphones are made of many electrical components that all generate heat while they are being used, but are designed to dissipate this heat so that the phone doesn’t overheat itself and become permanently damaged. If your phone is kept in an area where it is too hot for long periods of time, or you’ve run many apps or even games at once on your device which cause it to heat up more quickly than normal, then you have a greater risk of overheating and causing severe damage to your phone. This includes any liquid within the phone, if it gets too hot then the liquid will expand into all of the electronic components inside before it can cool down again, causing permanent damage that requires you to buy a new phone.

3. Water Damage

At any point in time, your phone could be exposed to water and if the water is allowed to stay inside of the phone for an extended period of time then it will start to damage the electronic components inside and potentially cause permanent and irreversible damage that would require you to buy a new one instead of trying to fix it yourself at home.

4. Outdated/Faulty Hardware Components

If your hardware components fail after years of use, it can cause permanent damage that requires buying a new device because most manufacturers won’t sell replacement parts for devices that they no longer make or offer technical support for anymore (for example, iPhone 4). Sometimes when replacing hardware components, there might be a problem with the software, which would require you to upgrade your phone’s software in order to get it working again.

5. Software Issues

Sometimes the software issues will make the problems for your mobile phone and your phone freeze up. Due to some apps being out of date you have to need to update our phone apps.
