    Default does the screen get hot?

    Does the S5 screen get hot for you guys? If so, does it drain the battery and cause ant other issues with the phone?

    I was testing out the device at a Verizon store and the screen was getting hot.

    Well, I would say if the device is over heating it means more battery consumption do one thing I am sure you must be having an active warranty why don't you go and walk towards the customer support seeking reason behind the overheating.

    The reason the store model seems hotter than the average phone..

    1 It is constantly being charged and usually a lot of screen on time.

    2 Verizon bloatware running the in store demo all day, chews up the processor as well.

    I took mine in to the Samsung kiosk for them to figure out why my phone over heats constantly but they couldn't give a reason. My phone gets hot all the time, so hot it won't let me use the camera and I will get an error message saying the phone must cool down before taking video or pictures.

    Thanks for the responses.

    It's not my phone, it's the Verizon store model. I guess it'd make sense that the store model gets hot because of various issues. But I wonder if regular users experience hot screens as well.

    The thing is I'm considering getting the S5, but I don't want any heated screen issues.
