    does anyone have this problem?
    I bought my phone yesterday and ıts getting so hot just after i unlock and use camera for lıke a few photos or to look email/internet

    it gets hot next to camera where İ believe processor is. Battery isnt overheating the way i see it in program
    I checked temp with cpu programs it shown 34.c and 40-45 at charging. but still i think its not normal after this small use to get so hot. could it be defective and i should take it back?

    Yea.... Quite a bit. I think it was updates and stuff running in the background. Maybe a reboot will help.

    Mine only got hot as it downloaded all my apps over LTE and installed them. After that it's been fine with normal use and even gaming some.

    This could be an indication of a faulty microsd card or (more rare) card slot in your phone. I would pull it out and try using the phone to see if you can isolate the issue.

    My phone doesn't seem to go past 100ºF or 38ºC when charging/gaming/taking video, according to GSam.

    Give it a few days. Everyone seems to be experiencing this in the beginning. Mine is fine now.

    and now it happened today the phone became totally unresponsive. back button, open apps button nor home button worked. İ took a photo and suddenly after reviewing photos screen went black and İ had to hold volume down + power to imitate the battery pull

    so İ think its tıme to call my operator

    I've had mine since March 1st, and so far it's been lagging a little here and there but less than normal for a Samsung. Whenever I shoot video is gets pretty hot, but no warnings yet. I'll continue to monitor and let you all know if it continues.

    Just because you are not saving data to the SD card doesn't mean the phone is not using it. I would eliminate any foreign hardware connected to the phone (sd card) before trying to troubleshoot.

    If you want to really feel a hot phone try using the VR for 30 mins. Phone was a bit hard to handle.

    Ive had mine since the 12th. It started locking up and getting really hot in my hand yesterday. Today it completely locked up after heating up and i had to return it. I asked the Verizon guy and he said. "its the first one they have gotten back with this problem." They replaced it with a new one with no problems. I tried to reset several times but it just kept doing the same thing, I think the internal battery might have been damaged.

    Mine got hot for a little bit when I first turned it on. After a while it cooled back down and has been fine since.
