How to improve hanging and heating problem in this phone?
Unplug from charging to keep it cool, Most of the time when I plug into charging then my phone heats. For resolving hanging problem you need to clear cache and unusable data which consumes internal memory, so you need to keep maximum free internal memory.

Just download apps only from playstore and keeps a part of your phone memory free. Also you can regularly (like in 5-6 months) restore the whole phone and can use the smart switch app for backing up your data in a pendrive..

Please don't buy this phone.
It's made of very low quality material. I had never seen this type of screen, this phone's screen is not actually super amoled. It is worse than IPS & TFT screen. We can clearly see its pixels. Phone is heated up very much when Internet is used. Thank you.
