Default S5 heats up?

Is anyone experiencing a warm back with s5 especially after a reboot? Is goes up to 99 degrees F and drains the battery but nothing else is running. Anyone know the cause? Thx in advance.

I haven't noticed any unusually high temps, it runs about as hot as my Note 2 would under similar situations.

Ok, do you know what the temperature would be under normal use? Wondering if I need to exchange mine which I don't want to do.

I've been emailing and browsing XDA for the last 20 minutes and its been sitting right around 85*F every time I've checked on it.

Have you checked what apps are running? I've noticed some warming when I have used the camera or internet extensively, but nothing like my GS3 used to.

No I haven't experienced that stuff. It runs very smoothly.

I'd recommend resetting the android os from settings 》 backup&reset.

The next level is to completely reinstall the operating system using Samaung Kies (download straight from Samaung website). Install usb drivers from samsung site.

Once kies recognized your phone, run a full backup if you have anything you'd wish to back up, then reinstall/intitialize phone software.

On the S4 upon initial boot up, the phone performs a media scan on of the internal storage and SD card. While this was happening, the phone would become noticeably warmer, I believe the same thing is happening to your S5.

Generally it shouldnt heat up. You should try a factory reset but heating is normally caused by a bad settled kernel in the firmware. Seeing as there are no custom kernels to replace it and stock firmwares to flash in Odin you could just factory reset.
