    Yes, I feel cheap smartphones get an unfair reputation of overheating since more expensive phones made by Apple and Samsung can also overheat according to articles I read online on tech blogs.

    There are a lot of people who used cheap Nokia Windows Phone, LG, and Motorola phones which don't overheat where it burns people's skin, or become dangerous to use.

    Maybe? I know my $600 one overheats easily these days, but then again it is 4 years old.

    I read that the iPhone X is also overheating according to iPhone X users report overheating, excessive data consumption , and some people put the phone in the freezer. It is disappointing that phones which cost hundreds to thousands of dollars still overheat. Apple and Samsung can probably design a better cooling system or install a small fan to cool down the phone.

    Of course, phone cases most likely cuts off proper cooling.

    Some phone cases may help with cooling if the person holding the phone has hot hands where the heat from a person's hand is transfer to the phone. People can get hot hands when holding a cup of hot water, or washing their hands with hot water.

    My hands are mostly cold in the winter as well because turning up the heat makes the heating and electricity bill more expensive in the Winter and early Spring.
