How to Monitor the CPU Temperature on Android


Overheating is a common problem with most Android devices as the current generation of mobile processors dissipate a lot of heat. Generally your phone would not heat up when running idle, however if it does overheat in idle condition, then it is definitely the result of an android app running in the background.

While we can feel our phones getting overheated, we can’t be certain what their temperature is. This is where we will need to take help from an android app to find out our phone’s exact temperature.

There are more than a dozen apps on the google play store that can help you with monitoring out the temperature of your Android phone’s CPU. The app I will recommend you to use is CPU Temperature. The major reason why i am recommending this apps is: it allows you to monitor the temperature of your android phone with a draggable temperature overlay. This feature makes this app very useful as you don’t have to open the app every time you need to view your phone’s CPU temperature. Instead you can just drag the CPU temperature overlay anywhere on the screen and monitor your phone’s live CPU temperature.


Now that you know about this interesting feature of the CPU temperature app. Here’s how you can use it to monitor the live temperature of  Android phone’s CPU.

How to Monitor the CPU Temperature on Android

  • Step 1: Download and install CPU temperature on your Android phone from the download link provided at the bottom of this page.
