1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

Is it me or does this phone get too hot too often?

    Whilst charging and playing games it always gets very warm.

    I've use other phones that heat up - the S2 and the S3 - but they would only do so sometimes. The Nexus 4 seems to do it consistently.

    For me it only really happens when I'm playing graphics intensive games, streaming movies, and browsing the web with bad HSPA reception. I wonder if Google or LG would introduce some sort of firmware to help the overheating. I know that LG has had a few phones that had overheating problems (the LG Connect for example) and they fixed the problem with a firmware update later on. Maybe if enough people contact Google about it they'll do something.

    Lets do this. Someone write up a petition. Or link a direct email from Google where we can all spam them with our complains about overheating. We are 5 thousand strong in this forum! :p

    quad-core processors do get warm on any computing device.

    I always figured it was because the glass backing will transfer the heat to your hands so much easier.

    I'm having difficulty perceiving plastic as a better insulator than glass. :thinking:

    One has to wonder what percentage of battery life is used in the simple generation of heat?

    That's what I was thinking too :D not quite as good as the old Ronsonol lighter-fluid ones though, nor as long-lasting on a full charge.

    Mine has gotten warm a few times, not nearly as much as my Evo 3D did though.
