    My S5 is getting hot and can not find out why. The only suspect is when going to the Battery usage is shows Android System at a very high usage but don't know how to interpret that. I do all the obvious things like clear open tasks and open apps. Any thoughts?
    Thanks guys....

    Any chance you're using wireless (Qi) charging? I was having major heating problems when charging in the car or at home with my Qi chargers. I finally gave up and went back the regular charging and my over heating problems went away...

    Thanks ZOXXO but not using that charging format. I have noticed that by turning off WIFI the issue has seemed to gone away. Not sure why but the Android System shown in the battery usage also has subsided.

    Every few weeks I do notice the battery runs down faster and the phone feels warm like it does when you work on it for long time. Restarting the phone gets it back to normal so it appears that some service gets stuck in a loop and eats CPU. Based on what you are seeing, it could actually be the Wifi service that gets into a funk over time.
