Temperature is one of the factors that need constant monitoring in any given environment. It is a medium by which we can know “how hot” or “how cold” a surface is. Heat above certain degrees can be disastrous in nature, but by knowing the temperature value of any given environment we can curtain the negative effects it may cause in the said environment.
Today’s smartphones are compact, extremely thin, and are mostly made of metal or glass – these properties make them a target to heating, which if not controlled or properly monitored can cause environmental hazards.
So, today, we’ll be talking about how you can check the temperature of the CPU in your Android phone. You might ask, why will I want to do that? The thing is, monitoring the temperature of the processor in your Android device can be a pointer to know how effective your smartphone is working and can also be used to troubleshoot inefficiency.

Throttling is one of the known issues of CPU overheating, but by monitoring the CPU temperature of your Android constantly, you can know how to tackle it and take precautionary measures.
Although different measures (such as cooling systems) are applied by phone manufacturers to lessen the effect of heat generated by the CPU, it is not sufficient enough when the device is undergoing intensive tasks.
There is no native means by which you can check the CPU temperature on Android, but there is an app you can install to check the data. The app is called “CPU Monitor”.
|The CPU temperature tab|
With CPU Monitor, you can view all the details pertaining to the processor in your Android device, including the CPU speed, CPU usage, and the CPU temperature. The data are processed in real-time and are also displayed in the notification/status bar (can be turned on under settings).
|The CPU temperature graph|
The temperature unit is Celsius (°C) by default, but it can be changed to Fahrenheit (°F). One of the features of the app is overheating alarm, which alert an user when the temperature of the CPU inside smartphone exceed 45°C.
To get started, simply download CPU Monitor, install it, and launch it from the app drawer. The application is free to use.
