Overclocking on a Samsung A52 with Snapdragon 720G can happen if the phone is experiencing thermal throttling or if there is a power management issue with the phone's hardware or software. Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue:

  1. Check for software updates: Ensure that your phone has the latest software updates installed. Software updates can include performance improvements that can help to prevent issues like thermal throttling.

  2. Check for background apps: Close any background apps that may be running while gaming, as this can cause the phone to overheat and trigger overclocking.

  3. Reduce graphics settings: Lowering the graphics settings in your game can also help reduce the load on your phone's processor, which can prevent thermal throttling and overclocking.

  4. Use a cooling solution: Using a cooling solution like a phone cooler or a fan can help to prevent the phone from overheating and triggering overclocking.

  5. Reset the phone: If the above steps do not resolve the issue, you can try resetting the phone to its factory settings. This can help to eliminate any software issues that may be causing the problem.

If none of these steps help, you may want to contact Samsung customer support or take your phone to a certified repair center for further assistance.
