Though the solution could vary as per devices, I will list out a few generic solutions -

1. Disable unwanted apps
Android always has had a bad impression of having a plethora of some unnecessary apps running in the background. Most of them are resource hungry and also energy intensive. Disabling them could be much helpful.

2. Limit graphics S and processor intensive tasks
Gaming (especially the resource hungry like temple run ) and Web browsing for prolonged period of time can have battery needing to work harder. This results in overheating. Controlling the time spent on such tasks can help reduce over heating.

3. Use better batteries
Using better batteries can help you reduce the load on it. Do not go for cheaper alternatives. These batteries claim to be similar to original ones, but may not give you the same backup.

4. Take precautions while charging
Use original chargers. Do not perform heavy activities while charging is on. Keep the place where you are charging your device well ventilated.

A few more actions that may help you reduce overheating
Do not use bulky or thick cases for your phone. The device has no ventilation like your desktop or laptop. Also take care not to expose the device to bright sunlight. Do not increase the brightness of your phone. Higher brightness will always put more load on the processor and battery. Instead use a glare screen which will help you get better visibility in bright light even without increasing the brightness.
