    You are wrong! At least several people have stated the S4 never gets hot..... It has found a way in spite of the same fabrication process of the S3, to be faster and push over twice the pixels and runs cooler than the S3. The two hotter running S4 units I tested were my imagination and ditto for yours.

    On a more serious side, the S3, DNA, iPhone 4, 5, Razr HD, etc and yes, even the coveted S4 gets hot. The Qualcomm 800 and similar lower fab chips should usher in less heat, but they will STILL run hot. The reason is the new chips run even faster, so nulls the better fabrication process. LTE though should see a slight improvement.... Unless using the new super fast LTE.

    I'm new to android after having BlackBerry for years. Loving my S4 i9505. It is the best phone I've used so far. Phone does overheat while playing games for long periods. Phone is beautiful and I'm very happy with it.

    My phone gets hot as well near the camera in the back and also the screen gets hot.
    so my question is are your phones also getting hot in the front (screen)?

    I got a Galaxy S4 about two weeks ago, and it never overheated until yesterday, when I launched Skype. I let Skype remain in the background, and I noticed the battery was draining quickly, so I recharged it but it became very hot - not just around the camera area, but all over the device. I unplugged it, and it stayed hot and the battery went down extremely quickly. So I turned the device off for a few hours, let it cool off, and restarted it... no heat. I recharged and it did not become hot again. It's now fully charged and cool to the touch, without Skype running. I'm uninstalling Skype, as that seems to be the only thing that made my phone hot.

    I bought S4 AT&T US last week.
    When using Camera or GPS and Navigation system phone heats up to the point that it's uncomfortable to hold it.
    I called AT&T Support and they told me that this might be a problem with battery (not the phone/CPU itself).

    Anybody was successful with fixing heating problem by replacing battery?
    I called ATT this morning and they will send me a new battery. They dont replace phone. Lets see if it works. Mine is extremely hot when on call. In 3 minutes you cant even put the phone in your ear.

    Just an update on overheating... I removed Skype from my phone and it's been working fine with no overheating for the last 2 months.

    What do you expect forum members to do exactly? Saying it isn't normal for your phone to get that hot is pretty much saying you need to either find out if there is an app taxing the processor causing it to overheat or take it in to your carrier and tell them to give you one that does not overheat like that. If you want a solution to the phone burning your face, I have one for you. BUY A HANDS FREE DEVICE.
