-Discharging rate of smartphone 

Some activities such as gaming and streaming of video increases the discharge rate of your smartphones battery there by causing the battery to heat up. Also, running apps like music and video streaming while charging your phone could also result to an increase in emperature, the more current pulled from the batteries, the greater the heat generated.

-Brightness level of your phone 

When your phone gets too bright, it tends to drow more of power from your battery which increases your phone's battery temperature.

-Fault in the circuit board or other components

A faulty phone panel is an extreme case which can result into a pretty hot device, your are required to visit a phone repairer to get such problem fixed.

-Background Apps

Background apps are the most common cause of overheating problem in smartphones, Some applications run continuous even when they are not in use, some of these applications use up a lot of memory space thereby loading the process and keeping it continuously running.
