    Hi fellas, I just bought a galaxy s6, but here's the problem I have with it thus far: heat. Room temperature is around 26 degrees (celsius) but while doing soft stuff like browsing (only one tab) or watching a video, I see the cpu reaching 45-50 degrees. I restarted the phone, and same results. When the phone's doing absolutely nothing, the cpu temp is around 43-44 degrees. My question is, are these temperatures normal ? Or should I send the phone back ? Thank you for your answers.

    Welcome to Android Central! Does the phone feel hot when it's reading up in the 50s?

    well it does a little ( it feels warmer than my old htc E8, though that one doesn't feature aluminium but rubberized plastic) the temps are hovering around 45-50 with usual tasks, but it doesn't "burn" I'm just worried my device might be defective.

    Bump ? Any thoughts ? I used cpu-z and cpu thermometer for the tests, oh and while gaming it almost reached 65 degrees. So should I return the phone ?

    Does it feel really hot when it gets that high? Try going to the store and see if the demo gets that hot.

    Yeah that is what I'll try tomorrow. Anyway, I'll keep news coming if anything happens. Thanks

    Honestly I wouldn't worry about it unless you have other problems.

    oh alrighty then, thanks for the info. I'll still check out the demo tomorrow. But regarding the temperatures, my device is not far from yours, and in all honesty I am starting to think that this is pretty much how most of the recent high end phones work (thin with higher clock speed for the cpu). Be it what it would, it is not bothering me that much. Thanks for the replies guys !

    Hey it's me again and I checked the demo which seemed to be... pretty similar to what I have, there was a s6 in its charging process showing higher temperatures than mine, but at its side, an s6 edge which, while doing nothing, was fairly close to how my phone feels. Anyway, thank you guys ! The phone appears to be in its normal cpu temps at 40-50 when doing basic stuff, around 35-40 when Idle, and 60-67 while gaming or heavy multitasking with 4g on.
