3D games that use the GPU and CPU heavy are in effect "stress" tests. As far as gaming, the S3 does not get as hot to the touch. Still, it could be a fluke, hence my question rather than assertion.

For perspective, the 600 uses the same micron process as the the Snap dual in the S3. Considering the 600 is basically twice as fast, pushing twice the pixels and in the same footprint, it makes sense that the S4 gets hotter. Kind of a "duh" point, now that I think about it.
