    My S3 gets hot during heavy data usage and charging.. Other than that it's good. The charging seems normal since the battery is trying to juice up ASAP.

    Buy the spare battery/charger kit: Amazon.com: Samsung Battery Charger/Stand with Battery for Galaxy S3: Cell Phones & Accessories Great thing to have no matter what. See if the included OEM battery also gets hot. If not, you have a funky battery. If yes, maybe you have a funky phone?

    Whats the level of brightness at? I run mine at 40% to conserve extra juice, but at times I crank it to high and it warms up on high brightness and playing videos and or games. Or if I'm the phone extended periods of time my battery temp gets hot and is warm to touch. Normally though no problems

    You are right that it is the phone. The company that I work for use US Cellular. Between a firmware update and jacked up new billing system on top of the crappy over heating phones they are replacing ALL of the Samsung Galaxy S3's.
