I am wondering if anyone is having problems with their Galaxy S4 overheating? Mine gets very hot around the top speaker where your ear rests. So hot that I cannot hold it against my head. Iíve shown this to several people when it happens and everyone agrees it cannot be normal for a phone to get this hot.
I do not keep the phone in my pocket and it has good airflow. I also donít have many apps syncing in the background. What is typically running are the core services, WeChat, Whatís App, email, and Deja Office.
Any suggestions on how to keep it from getting hot? It is so warm it is unusable to be held to the ear.
*** BTW, I got this phone about 6 weeks ago and have done my best to try to use it and find solutions, but between the Wi-Fi connectivity issues, this excessive heat, and battery life only getting me through 7pm at night before needing a recharge, I have to say this has been one of the most disappointing phones I've ever had. I actually miss my HTC TouchPro 2. It was bulky but it worked solidly and ran Windows applications like Outlook and sync with no issues.
