Almost any app use will cause the cpu to jump to max frequency, so that doesn't mean anything.

All silicon is different, if yours is borderline specs then it may get warmer than another -provided the battery remains below 50 C then no problem.

I think my battery swims in 40-46 celcius after a while of device just being open. 1.4ghz is normal ok, but why the excessive heat then. And two years ago I hoped i needn't to get another phone in at least three years since all I do these days at maximum is twitter and youtube on my phone. No games or anything...
And - at least to me noticing it this is recent. And I would since its hot enough that i feel it in my thigh after putting it in my pocket.

Being at 1.4ghz all the time is the reason why ur phone heats up. So it is not okay. I think u btr send it for repair since it is not software based.

I have had the same issue with my S3 (SGH-T999). What I found was that the overheating occurred with a certain battery in use. Yes, I carry 4 batteries around with me. The oldest battery seemed to be giving me the problem with frequent overheating and a lot of reboot/shut down issues.

I have two different batteries, this happens on both, extended and the normal one that came with the phone, so I eliminated that idea too.

Well bummer. Sorry I couldn't help you better. Do you use a full body screen protector with a case? You may also want to clean out the inside of the phone, under the casing. After almost two years the amount of dust and lint can really build up.

If your cpu is constantly running at 1.4ghz then that should be the first thing to fix. You can try to figure out what is causing the massive cpu load by installing a cpu monitoring app from the playstore.

If this is a hardware related issue, then you need to get it fixed. In either case, constantly high temperature can affect your cpu permanently.

If your rom is screwed. You'd rather perform a mega-wipe and flash stock nb6 firmware through desktop odin and see. I would give some time for it to settle and compare the temps.
