We often here about smartphones blasting. Even the best smartphones in market may blast because of overheating. You should always prevent your phone from overheating. Most of the smartphones automatically get turned off when they are overheated but you should also be careful about the temperature of your device. Continuous use of some heavy applications may heat up your device if your smartphone is just with the basic hardware. Another thing which you can do to avoid overheating is to avoid taking calls when it is on charging.

Sometimes we keep our Smartphone in the back pocket but it may spoil the display. Because of excessive pressure, the screen may get damaged internally. Though it will look normal but you may see some dead pixels or blurred display.
