    Try installing the app called CPU-Z. It will show your CPU load & battery temp among man other things. See if your CPU is under load when it feels warm/hot. As mentioned before, you may have something causing your CPU to be working allot it the background. See if the heat correlates with CPU load.

    Mine only gets really warm when I'm always on it (playing games) or when I'm playing a game that requires a lot of power.

    My phone got HOT in my pocket last week. It was uncomfortable against my hip. I took it out to see why, if some ap was left on or turned on accidentally and nothing, no explanation. It was so hot I thought it was going to burn a hole in it or fry it. I wasn't even using it. Lasted awhile. I looked at notifications just now and it says it had taken measures to cool itself down. Never heard of that so got to searching and found this forum.

    I noticed mine getting hot, and I just got this one 2 weeks ago, for my Bday. When it starts getting hot, I check my notification area and turn off some of the features I'm not using. I came here to get answers about this very issue, as my phone was getting hot again this morning, so I read a few comments and decided to turn off "Sync", lower my screen brightness, turned off NFC, and a few others that I am not using and my phone truly began to cool off! I think if you are running features that you don't need at the time, background apps too, it causes the phone to heat up fast.
    Hope this helps, y'all helped me!

    My phone never gets warm, ever.


    but, I control what works and what don't.

    If I don't need it "right now", it is turned OFF.

    If the phone's screen is locked, everything is turned OFF. No internet, no sync, no nada...
    One exception, I always leave Location ON and in High Accuracy Mode. Takes less time to get an accurate locale.

    If the phone's screen is unlocked, then the internet is turned ON, but nothing else.

    I activate an app and use it, turn it off when I'm through with it.

    Not only does it run cool as the ambient temperature, but the battery life is extremely good.

    when idling and the screen is locked, the battery use is on the order of about 8% per 24 hours. ( that means the screen never did get unlocked )

    Typical use for me is about 35% to 50% battery use per day from 0500 to 2200 hours, but that is only on days I am out working.

    when I am home, I use the desktop PC and the phone sits unloved....

    Pamela, what I am about to say is probably a bit controversial, but I've experienced this not only myself with Android, but also with a family member with Apple and bought her a new piece of equipment because of it. Okay here goes, you said you had it plugged in... Are you using Samsung equipment to charge your phone? I found in other situations besides just my sister's that using off brand chargers, USB cables, etc can cause minor and major problems. My sis burned up her iPhone using a non brand charger from Walmart. I bought her the correct one and after Apple replaced her phone she had no more problems.
    Now, some ppl are going to disagree with me, but I strongly believe in using the correct cables same brand no matter how much the cost. I know the S5 has an odd shaped charger, but companies like RocketFish, etc are making compatible chargers.
    Just a thought.

    Also, the fact that your screen is getting hot, now that is one I've not heard before, and sounds dangerous, yikes! Hopefully someone here on the forum can help you.
    Good Luck!

    Oh and it may not happen right away, as in my sister's case, she used the off brand for months, before it burned up the phone.

    I switched from Dalvik to ART one day just to see what it would do, and the resulting run through that the phone did to change compatibility made it almost burn my leg. It does get warm sometimes but the case I have on now that I'm beta testing makes it way to easy to hit the home button, so that's how I know the barstid came unlocked in my pocket.

    Boom! From My S5
