I bet any phone will heat up under those conditions. Sounds normal.

Anything demanding on the CPU will cause the phone to heat up. Gaming, Video Chatting, GPS Navigating (GPS Nav made my iphone 4s so hot you could cook on it), even app updating if you update 20 apps at once.

I am now waiting for a poster saying their S4 never gets hot, which means little to no 3D gaming, video streaming with 4G, or GPS navigation. The magic pixie dust is STRONG with this device. Kind of like folks with the iPhone 4s and 5 saying theirs do not ever get hot and those things can get as hot as a device can without morphing into all glass. An overstatement, but fitting.

Mine can get quite hot at times. It's a little concerning, but is the nature of the beast

How long do you video call or game before you notice the heat?

Video call and gaming??? That is a heavily load, both require both the CPU and GPU going hard, as well as Microphones, speaker, Display, Audio chip etc... The phone is bound to get warm.

Does your S2 have a quad core CPU? Does it score as high in benchmarks? Well, it has nowhere near the CPU power S4 has so it does not heat up.
