    My s4 gets really hot when I charge it. Does this happen to every phone or just mines? Is this harmful for my phone? It gets even hotter when I use it while its on charge.

    How hot?
    Your sensor shows the temperature of the phone's battery. Because it's the phone's most sensitive component.

    The Li-Ion battery's temperature operating range is:
    for discharging -20C (-4F) to +60C (+140F).
    for charging 0C (+32F) to +45C (+113F).

    mine does also, ive learned to shut it off for 10 min and back on. or until its cool...;)

    happens sometimes to me tho, not all the time.

    when it happens, when i leave the house and im driving about,
    at first i thought it was wifi searching, so ive set wifi to not search for wifi.
    sometimes if the screen is getting hit by the sun.
    sometimes a weak 4g signal.
    sometimes browsing on 4g signal.

    in all my cases, i shut it off wait for it to cool and power back on.
    if i dont shut it off and wait for it to cool, my battery dies quickly..:(
    10min wait to cool is not a deal breaker for me.:rock:
