    Default S5 overheating

    Hi
    Got my s5 friday. Love the device. Only problem the screen and back get fire hot.

    The phone was on 41 deg celcius yesterday (104+) and 39 this morning
    Went from 28deg this morning to 38.9 in 12 min of use

    What would be considered a normal running temp on a device like this.

    Could it be the battery that is faulty

    41 is not considered too hot. Have you noticed issues like random reboots, shut downs, very sluggish performance or anything like that? Have any warnings popped up on the screen telling you that it's too hot, or the LED flashing at all? Does it charge normally when you plug it in?

    If you can cook and egg or make toast on it then I would worry, but otherwise you should be ok. Though I suspect you are concerned about the life expectancy of the device if its running hot all the time which is a valid point. If it keeps up get it replaced asap before the 14 day window so you get a new unit and not a refurbished one a few months from now.

    I went to my phone supplier today as my new phone was running damn hot! They suggested I remove Dr Battery Saver as it could be causing a conflict as the S5 has a battery manager built in..... S5 now running cool and holding power.

    Had My S5 for 3 days now charging it and it seems to be very warm when charging.. ALso the Batter is suppose to be long and I have very little turned on and it's about the same as my IPHONE4 maybe a whole day or 28 hours.

    That's pretty good battery life considering how much more the phone is doing (and the larger screen).

    If the phone is still functioning fine while charging it's probably not worth worrying about.

    Overheating is when the heat causes the phone to die / reboot / shut itself off. In your case, it just gets warm - all phones with Qualcomm 800 + 801 processors get fairly warm

    Mine goes to 93 F when charging and drops to 73 F when not charging and right after a period of no use.

    Gps/location service, I think causes the over heating.

    My iPad 3 is a frying pan ........ Devices get heat up and no need to worry unless it causes reboots or other issues.

    It is very common problem in most of the smartphones. I have the same problem with my new S5, It can overheat when radio-heavy apps like Maps and Pandora run too long but they rarely get hot enough to burn skin.

    Don't use your phone while you kept it for charging.

    How do you know it's made in Korea? I see china on box, charger, battery. Phone doesn't show COO.

    Ok. Just to verify, I open the phone again and removed the battery and it says Made in China. Everything is made in china.. The phone, box, charger, battery, sim card and even samsung's microSD card is China.

    I have Galaxy S4.

    My battery is made in Korea but assembled in Vietnam.....
    My phone is manufactured in Vietnam.

    It depends on what variant and what model you have..............

    Last year , Most china made batteries on GS4 seemed to be defective .

    Even Samsung offered replacement program.

    I am always cautious of Samsung's china phones......

    I actually got a "Cool down" notification after running Disney Hidden Worlds for the first time. Sorry, Disney, I love ya, but when a simple find-it game almost blows up my phone, you have a bad app.

    I wondered if there was a temperature monitor in the phone.
    that makes me feel better about my Wireless charger. It is an el cheapo off fleabay and it runs hot

    What is too hot? anyone know?
