Default [Q] Galaxy SIII heat?

Hello guys. I bought my galaxy s3 3 days ago and the first thing i saw at it was that it goes pretty hot compared with my last phone. So i started checking my temperature to see just how high it goes. I saw that the highest it went was 51c, Average temperature of the CPU is aroud 40 (mostle 40+ like 44, ,41 etc.). I want to know if the temperature of 51c is normal for heavy use? I am concerned because i just put a case on it which is a little big so i dont want it to overheat or other stuff.

This phone only ever gets warm when the cpu is running flat out, either you've got lots of bloatware running or a faulty motherboard.

Mine is used all day and stays around 33C

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Well, its time to upgrade
Visit Sammobile's firmware section for your country's latest official rom,
or look at 'android dev' thread for a custom one.

Ps- make sure to visit FAQ for understanding EFSv2 issues first.
