    Default Samsung Galaxy S3 - Does your gs3 get warm quickly?

    Compared to my vs2w,fhjs phone gets warm rather quickly, not super hot but warm enough to notice. Even just doing a few simple things like Facebook, texting, browsing the forums noticeably warm it up, especially the lower portion of the phone where the home button is. When I check in task manager, there aren't any apps using a high amount of CPU time and I also don't see the battery usage fall of a cliff. Just wondering if anyone else noticed this.

    Yes but I actually had the Evo LTE before this and the Evo was worse. The Evo would vent around the camera but was hotter. These thin phones get a little warm.

    I've noticed it a few times, but I think it stays pretty cool considering the thickness of the device.

    I just noticed that while making phone calls, it stays remarkably cool.

    On a side note, do you guys have "force gpu rendering" enabled?

    gps activity and compensations for poor data coverage could make the phone warm

    Mine definitely ran warm... And I also noticed that Android OS was the bulk of the battery. I ended up rooting, and am using SETCPU. It runs much cooler now, and Android OS is a lot farther down the battery usage list.

    Same issue here (International version), GPS and Data turned off, browsing the Internet using any browser (built-in or Chrome) or pretty much any Internet application will make the device really hot on the lower back and the front around the home button. Within a minute of stopping Internet activity it becomes cool again. I'm starting to worry if there's something wrong with my device due to this high amount of heat and extremely short battery life even after having it for almost a week now.

    I have the SGH-i747 with heat and short battery life. Taking the phone to AT&T for exchange. I really like the phone, so I hope the phone will run cooler and longer.

    Mine does get hot as well. But trying to exchange it probably won't help it.

    I have also noticed that while doing anything that uses 4G, internet, wifi, or streaming music will increase the heat of the phone regardless of "venting".

    While streaming music in my car with the windows down in summer My G3 120f but still ran fine. This was due to the data usage and charging at the same time. I have also streame music, charged, and used gps w/ Navagation and seen no change in the heat to the prior test.

    My older Droid X near the end of the contract started heating up to 118f using the same set up, but was unable to charge past when i plugged it in. I found that by turning the screen off (lock key) it allowed the device to not only charge but cool down.

    So I would say that the heating up is just due to screen + data usage + charging so heat is a givin.

    Also for the battery life, anything involving data seems to sap the hell out of the battery. also the area your in that effects your radio as well. In my Doctors office i get no signal and i can watch the battery drop 1% a min while it is sitting in my pocket. I end up putting it in airplane mode and the battery won't drain.

    Again my droid X was the same way and while at work i would just turn data off (because it was spoty at best bouncing from 3g to 1x to nothing and around) and my battery went from lasting me 6 hours to lasting me 3 days with no data turned on.

    My conclusion is that the Radio they used in the devices is what's chewing all the power. But we wanted 4G =3.

    Hope some of this might help.

    My gs3 is rooted and way over clocked I'm new to rooting and don't know what is a good CPU setting and gov setting I'm on the cm10 jb ROM but my batt drains. I'm getting about seven hrs on a batt. it lasted longer on stock.

    My GS3 gets decently warm. Extremely thin phone, dual-core processor, 2GB RAM, constantly multitasking... recipe for higher temperatures. The thinness of the s3 has always been the most impressive feature in my eyes because of what its able to do, and seems to be able to do reliably and amazingly well, without a huge cooling fan.

    My phone is pretty warm right now, where I can feel the heat through the screen. Due to charging and multitasking.

    I think it's the oem battery. I have a hyperion that doesn't get hot but when I put my oem battery in it gets super hot. I got it replaced but have yet to charge it

    How do u start a thread sorry im new. Also does the galaxy s3 downclock when they get warm because I ran quadrent and my o hone normally scores like 4700-5250 but when its reay warm it will score in the low 4000 like 4100 or so. And when im playing games like dead trigger I sometimes get a sligght studder every once in a while is all this normal?

    Mine does. The temp gauge said 108. I downloaded advaced task killer and shut some unneeded things off n that seemed to fix it. For now.
