    How to fix an Android phone that automatically goes off or shuts down frequently




    One pretty annoying experience is a mobile phone suddenly
    going off on you, especially when you’re working on a
    document, article or doing something really important;
    something you were careless enough not to have saved.

    we’ll be taking a look at this same issue on
    Android phones, a commonly ignored ‘suicide note’ to you
    from your smartphone.

    What could cause an Android phone to automatically go off
    or shutdown frequently?


    The most common causes of this issue are:

    Damaged battery: The battery of the phone might be
    swollen or damaged

    Overheating: The phone might be overheating due to a
    hardware or software issue, causing it to shutdown in
    order to cool

    .Rogue or incompatible applications: An incompatible
    application (usually apps that require root permission ;
    see http://www.gistpluz.com/2015/06/tutorial-on-how-to-root-all-tecno.html
    could be causing the OS to crash


    Incompatible ROM or buggy update: Flashing an
    incompatible Stock ROM, Custom ROM or a
    buggy / unstable OS update could be another factor


    Faulty hardware: The phone might actually have been
    sold with a factory defect or have developed a board
    issue


    Loose battery connectors: The battery might be getting
    unseated during movement due to loose battery
    connectors

    Damaged SD card: The memory card might be
    damaged or corrupted

    How do I fix an Android phone that automatically goes off
    or shuts down frequently?


    Terminate unneeded apps / processes: Ensure to close
    applications or processes not in use like WI-FI,
    Bluetooth, GPS etc so as to reduce the workload on
    the processor and battery
    Format the memory card or try using another one

    Avoid overcharging the battery: A battery should have
    charge-discharge cycles, not charge-overcharge cycles.
    Overcharging could make the battery wear out quickly

    Uninstall buggy apps: If the phone begins to shutdown
    suddenly, freeze or becomes slow shortly after installing
    certain apps then uninstall them

    Revert to the previous ROM: If you recently flashed
    another ROM or did an Android OS upgrade then
    consider reverting to the previous version. In some
    cases, re-flashing the Stock ROM or doing an OS
    upgrade resolves this issue

    Avoid overheating: Poor maintenance practices like
    setting the screen brightness too high, placing the phone
    near hot objects, using the phone heavily while charging,
    charging the phone using a PC and a USB cord
    etc should be put in check


    Adjust the battery connectors: The battery connectors
    transfer charges from the battery to the board and also
    help seat the battery firmly in place (you should see them
    protruding from the phone once you take off the back
    cover and remove the battery). Use a non-corroded
    metal to gently push them in place if they appear loose


    Replace the battery: Check to see if the battery is
    swollen or not charging properly to be sure the battery
    is actually the problem. If it is, then consider a battery
    replacement


    Consider returning the smartphone: If the phone is
    brand new and still under warranty then you should
    consider taking it in for replacement or repairs before
    voiding your warranty by dismantling or rooting the
    phone see( http://www.gistpluz.com/2015/06/tutorial-on-how-to-root-all-tecno.html
