    I leave my phone on charge overnight as I sleep but when I wake up, the phone is burning hot (55 degrees Celisius)
    I checked the "battery" section under settings and it said that my screen has been on for 3 hours straight..
    I realized it was because my phone would become fully charged and the notification "Fully charged, unplug charger" would come up and keep my screen on until I woke up..
    I've had my phone on auto time-out after 3 minutes of inactivity, and lock after 5mins.
    What should I do? How do I get rid of this notification/make the screen turn off after the notification comes up?

    Maybe shorten some of those times

    i was thinking that maybe some of the new sensors are a little wonky, so like your phone screen turns on from the notification and let's say something was laying across the screen like a bed sheet, wouldnt that set off the proximity and air view sensors to keep the phone on? or should the auto time out 3min override the air view sensor?

    Wow sorry for the late reply, not used to this forum yet! But I don't think any of the sensors are keeping it up, I've turned everything off.. I've also shortened the time as smooth4lyfe said but that didn't help either

    Reports are coming in from users of Samsungs new flagship Galaxy S4 that the device is getting a little too warm for comfort.

    It seems users of the Exynos Octa chipset variety are experiencing overheating issues, which is having a massive impact on battery life.

    One user even went as far tracking the temperature on his Galaxy S4; getting 27C when idle, 35C when browsing or checking email, and 40C when playing games!

    Some are theorising its to do with the location of the Exynos Processor, being too close to the radio and battery, compounding the heating problem. Whatever the cause is, most are recommending you turn off bluetooth and GPS (unless currently being used), dim the screen, and put the phone into power saving mode to restrict the processor.

    Hopefully Samsung will have a proper solution to this soon and well update this post if we hear anything.

    My phone gets hot pretty often. Apparently 40 is normal for the S4 but it's a little too hot in my hand.. Yes, for gaming it often hits the 40s but in idle it's around 25 and for light usage it's in its 30s. When I charge it goes up to 55 then restarts itself.

    My ATT- S4 Over heating - I am afraid my ears will burn..!
    Its been 7 days since I own this device. My S4 is heating up more when I turn on 4G (ATT). I am really afraid to make calls as I feel it is going to burn my ears..! On WIFI its getting hot when I am playing games. Not sure what do . When contacted Samsung they simply asking to Factory reset the phone and refusing to replace it.

    Please advice what to do now ?

    Thanks

    Download Du Battery Saver, free app in the app store. It will optimize your phone, tell you what to turn off, give you suggestions on how to keep it cool and help you charge your phone correctly. Never charge these S4's overnight even though some people say it's okay. When it is fully charged you are supposed to unplug it. You charge it when it is 20% or less on a fast charge to 80%, then a slow charge to 100%, then remove the charger. Phone will then not heat up and battery will last a very long time. I am getting 3 days on one charge with this little app. Turn off the app. when not in use. Also, always swipe down and turn off things your not using or get Llama app and set some conditions up that will auto do that for you. When I'm in the office, I turn of blue tooth, gps, data, etc. and use wifi, low screen brightness.I always have on the fun stuff, smart gestures, air view, S-voice, sync, and am still getting a great 3-day charge now. My phone does heat up when playing games. I don't think there is really any thing you can do about that.

    Also having a lot of trouble with over-heating on my Samsung GSM Galaxy Nexus 4.

    Seems to be chronic, with heat far in excess of "typical" much less "tolerable", coming from the processor region of the board (lower left of camera on underside).

    Mine has been aggravated by a flaky/dirty micro-USB jack. I've cleaned it up a couple times, but problem still occurs.

    Let me make it clear, the battery itself has not overheated, but it has been cooked by the chronic overheating from the phone internal circuitry. I have to go replace it.

    Why does Samsung push this under-tested, flawed kind of junk onto the market?

    This may not be selected but go ahead and look. Go to developer options and make the Stay Awake setting isnt checked.

    Yeah my phone is doing the same thing and it burned me and Verizon sent me a replacement and the first day I got it overheated again so they are sending me another but the replacements are all refurbished. So I don't recommend thus phone it will burn you.

    It's in the developer options, which adore hidden now.

    1. Uncover the developer options by doing this: How to Enable the Hidden Developer Options on Your Samsung Galaxy S4 Samsung GS4 softModder

    2. Uncheck "Stay Awake"

    Now your phone will not stay lit up when it's fully charged.

    Am I missing something or is this a Android Bug? Usually Developer option is usually hidden in a new phone. I also had the same problem, developer option was on and screen set to stay on while charging
    So when charged overnight my screen stayed on for several hours. Is this a bug or my phone was not 100% new?? Did it damage my screen? At least it was dimmed because it was dark...

    Take out the sd card. My phone used to overheat when it was being charged and the battery ran out within 4 hours. Took the sd card out and have no problems at all now.

    You can open dev. setting going to settings and tap on build nr. 7times. After this it should be available under settings menu.
