Where is the heat coming from?
When phone temperature rises, the most probable culprits are either the battery, processor, or screen:
1. Back of the phone
If the back of your phone is getting hot, the problem may bean overheating battery.
2. Bottom of the phone
See if the bottom of the phone gets hot when charging — if so, the problem might be with the charger.
3. Above the battery, by the speaker, or the screen
If you notice your phone is getting hot somewhere besides or above the battery, then explore other possible causes that could be either related to the phone itself, or to external factors.

NOTE: If all the above fails, I would edge you to reset your phone. (Settings > System > Reset Option > Reset all system app or Reset app preference and Factory rest if the problem persists)
Your last option would be to visit your nearest Carlcare for assistance if you can not directly report to Tecno Mobile developers.
