    Don't own this device yet, but I haven't seen a review yet that mention how much/fast the device heat (if at all) under surfing the net for a while and watching videos (at least for 20-50 min?)

    Anyone?

    Havent experience it yet but it only heats up when using the charger it comes with which is normal because its charging the battery at a fast rate

    Two of a battery's worst enemies are heat and forced charge cycles (fast charging). I will turn it off unless I need to be super quick with a charge and turned it off on the Note 4 and does not even have a fixed battery. Use it if I need it (which with the Note 4 has not been much).

    Overheating? Nope.

    Heating up while charging? Yup, but that's only natural.

    Mine got up to 95 degrees during setup. That was me messing around on it while it downloaded all my apps via LTE. After that it operates at normal temps.

    I never had a overheating issue but it gets pretty hot if you watch youtube for awhile. Especially near the dimple area.

    Yeah, I don't know about extremely hot, but I noticed that this definitely runs warmer than my Note 5.

    Check in your battery stats if any app is using an unusual high percentage. Maybe there's some heavy sync running in the background. Being a new phone my bet would be on Google photos or a similar cloud storage. Check the sync settings in that kind of app. Have you noticed if the phone gets hotter while on mobile data?

    Moto x pure is definitely runs hot. Especially back nearby dimple area. I am thinking that's the place where they have GPU located.

    My phone gets warm but not what I would call overly hot. The highest GSam has given me was 100F after about 20 or so minutes or texting, chrome, some youtube, etc. It does run warmer then my S6 did but the S6 did get into the low 90s sometimes after the same use. Of course, the S6 is made of metal and glass so it may dissipate heat better or it may not warm up 'all over' like the X does.

    I have yet to notice my phone getting hot. Maybe I haven't paid attention to it but I know for sure it hasn't reached the temps that some of you guys have posted. Still comfortable to hold in hand.

    I wouldn't say it gets uncomfortable by any means. To me it just feels warm, at least on the back. I have to be doing something that pushes the GPU a bit to, like watching a video for more then 10 or so minutes. It's nothing I haven't seen on other phones, though the Moto X is a tad warmer.

    Of course this is the first non metal or glass phone I've had in almost 2 years and those tend to dissipate heat differently.

    Folks, watching videos should not make the device warm much, yet alone hot. You have to get to 4K video before a GPU starts to have video throughput as a resource burden. Not even the overly warm to hot running S3 got very warm with Netflix or Youtube. Unless in a weak signal area using data, but that was the crappy radios causing the heat.

    If that stuff gets the device very warm or hot, that would suggest a device issue. Looking forward to testing.

    I just received my phone a couple hours ago. When it was restoring my apps/settings from my OG Moto X, it did get hot. It was downloading a lot, but it was definitely warm. The OG was my first phone and the only I can compare to, but I had never felt it get this hot before.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    When the CPU is pushed to EXTREME levels it will get warm. You have to remember that this is a new device and that people are setting their phones up as well as surfing the web and on social media all at the same time. Laptops have fans to dissipate heat. ANY CELL PHONE will get hot under those conditions.

    Mine gets warm. But so does my iPhone 6 plus, my iPad air 2, and my HP laptop. So give these small phones a break. Hell they're only $399. Smdh

    Mine has not been that hot. I just played Angry Birds for 40 minutes and it was not overly hot, Also Quick Charging WILL NOT harm your battery, Do a little research on Qualcomm and Moto and see the facts. It just boggles my mind that there are a few that talk about Quick Charge like it is going to blow up in your face and destroy your battery.
