Confused My Galaxy S overheats to 50 degree celcius

Hi , I just bought a Galaxy S 4 days back then its was over heating like ****. So got it replaced then this one too is heating like this. When i play angry birds or go to internet using edge for just 10 mins my phone overheats from 40 to 46. When i put that to charge and then use it for downloading it went to blasting 50 degree Celsius. I am fed up of this its very very uncomfortable to hold. Can u suggest me something on this . Or is this very normal in all Galaxy S mobiles ?

It is normal for these types of phones to overheat. You have 1GHz CPU and a large screen that consume a lot of power.

I'm not sure what is the ideal temp but I've have my phone get warm when using it, especially when doing Navigation with the GPS, or playing a graphic intense games. It has been working great with no issues.

Mine only ever gets warm. Never uncomfortably hot to the touch. I dont think that sounds right.

Oh but i got it replaced and the new one too having the same problem.Can you please check the temp you record when you feel your phone is hot. I think you can check temp by dialing *#0228#.

I just did a quick check on my phone. When the phone is idea and the screen has been off for a while the temp reads at about 27 degrees. When I use the phone for checking my email and just simple web surfing I see the temp jumps to around 35 degrees. So I guess if you are playing a game I would see the phone getting over 40 degrees easy. I will keep checking and tell you what I find.

I would suggest turning off the GPS and Bluetooth when not using them, and make sure your screen brightness is set to Auto so that it will use less power.

I just did a quick test for you. I tried charging the phone and playing a graphic intensive game for 5 minutes and my handset reached 48c, it's pretty normal for this to happen.

Last time I played AirAttach HD for about half an hour and the temp got to 50 degrees. So I guess it is normal to get to 50 degrees, the phone felt warm but not uncomfortable to hold.

Mine has passed 55 degrees a few times. Don't think much of it as it's a 1ghz CPU.
