    Curious about this self cooling thing. I was under the impression that it was supposed to keep your phone from getting extremely hot. I would consider 117 extremely hot.

    Grant it, I was watching a show but still.

    Do you have the AC enabled? It is off by default.

    Since I'm asking this question. I'm going to go ahead and say no it's not turned on. Where do I find that option?

    Yeah. I've noticed a piping hot phone, especially now that I use it outside.

    Turn off some features that are useless and save some battery and reduce heat. Even my Nexus 6P and its snaptoaster 810 have never reached 117. Only time i reached past 105 was when it hit 170 degrees after i left it in my car. My 6P dtays in the 90 and low 100's at all occasions and my s7E is even cooler with the 820.

    It only gets hot on occasion. There's not a rogue app or anything causing it. I was just under the impression the self cooling would keep it from ever getting that hot.

    Self cooling only helps distribute heat away from the processor. Once it activates the heats still going to build up.

    I'm not a gamer but I have noticed on a few occasions the phone gets really hot downloading and updating a lot of apps at once.

    Did Android OS alert you to the phone getting too hot? That happened one time to me when it got one degree over the threshold for the alert (my phone was on the wireless charger while upgrading Android OS). It was 90-something degrees Fahrenheit.

    A big *** ditto to that. During my son's baseball season, my S7 Edge has been extremely hot outdoors, even when it's in my pocket and not directly exposed to the sun.

    I haven't received an alert on my S7E or my S7 and they've both hit over 100* Fahrenheit.

    holy crap! I freak out when mine hits over 90 and set it on a fan or put an ice pack on it. I couldn't imagine 117. Mine is usually in the mid 80's

    Why is your phone radio 19%? That seems awfully high with the screen cranked up... just a few clicks less than your screen. Is there any way to turn it off when you are watching movies and pipeline all data through wifi?

    your 4G signal looks pretty weak too, if thats as strong as it gets. On Verizons 4G network 1~2 bars out of 5 isn't even worth trying to use, since it many times dips down to 3G or even 1x.

    I only have one bar of 4G coverage but still use it because the battery drains like there is no tomorrow on 3G

    Pretty much useless for tracking down a rogue app unless you're rooted, but tells you a tiny bit more than the stock battery tracker in stats.

    As for the phone, these days since the battery turned useless, every time I use it for more than 5 minutes it's absolutely roasting.

    Don't. Let it cool by itself. Rapid cooling from heat is what makes materials like glass brittle. You may already have caused micro-cracks on it, making it more susceptible to breaking if it falls. The more you do this, the more micro-cracks, you know the drill.

    Still 19% of your power consumption is going to your cellular radio and that seems pretty high... if you are under wifi and don't need it, is there any reason to leave the cellular data on?

    I only get 16.5gb of data per month on my wifi. With getting seven to eight hours screen on time per charge even with my weak signal the 19% or whatever the cellular radio says is irrelevant to me because I'm already getting more than double the screen on time of some people on this forum even with only one bar of signal
