Third-party apps are those applications you have downloaded from other sources and install on your phone. In short, these are apps that were not inbuilt or manufactured with your device.

Deleting them will very much reduce phone heat.

Some apps I suggest you delete are as follows:
  1. Games with Apk+Obb: They consume RAM, battery life and increase phone temperature.
  2. Background Running Apps: These are apps running secretly in the phone background without the owner's permission.
The best thing to do here is; delete them.

How To Locate And Delete This Apps

Go to Settings -> Apps -> Click on apps manually and check if it's running without your permission. Delete
or Disable the app.

Even some useless in-built apps can do this. They run in the background doing nothing valuable, only work best at consuming battery, reduce RAM and increase phone chances of getting hot.

I have mentioned earlier that data connection can possibly reduce phone performance whether on phone or your personal computer.

You should make sure you turn ON airplane mode whenever heat signs come up or anytime you have nothing to do with your data connection, or when you're expecting no incoming calls.


Of course, this can be an issue you don't know about.

Phone cases cover the whole of a phone, causes more heat to your device and may add to your Redmi note heating problem.

So if you have any case on your phone, remove them and see if your device temperature calms down.

Make sure you free up as much storage space on your phone to reduce the heat on the device.
