Default Over heating issues?

I started playing some games (n64 emulator -ocarina of time) and dang did my phone get hot so i stopped playing it. I also noticed it does get fairly warm when browsing reddit or facebook. How do you guys feel about this problem?

Completely unconcerned.

I used to have an S2 and sometimes that would get very hot. It never got too hot to touch with my hand but sometimes it would have been very uncomfortable to hold against my face. Often this was when I was playing games but it occasionally happened randomly when my phone was just sitting in my pocket doing nothing as well.

All computing equipment gets hot when it's working hard and phones are no exception. If it gets too hot to touch or close to it, I'd reboot. Otherwise, I just wouldn't worry.

BTW my S4 never gets as hot as my S2 did and nor does it heat up noticeably anywhere near as often.
