Hello XDA members I just bought Note 3 N9005, but I have a problem that the phone is very warm before 4.4 update and after while wifi on only without even playing, with or without charging, temp reaches 36-38 C, although I did factory reset, unlike my S3 which had a temp of 32-34 even while playing heavy games and browsing internet, I searched for answers before posting but couldn't find any decent one, always would like to know what is normal temp for this beast, thanks

P.S: can 32 gb kingstone class 4 be the cause?? I noticed after removing it that the temp decreased a lot, which SD card do you recommend??

Rumors say, that opting out location/interest based ads in Google Settings fixes this issue. May be the cause for overheating for you as well.

Try formatting your Kingston card. If not, install BetterBatteryStats and see what's draining your battery (higher heat, the more battery drain).

I have a problem of thr Note 3 overheating while gaming, so I did a little research avout the problem.
You said that when you remove the SD Card the phone is fine?
Might be the Index Service in your phone constantly working.
This service is responsible for file Indexing in our Note 3. I think that there is a file on your SD Card that won't be indexed, and that's why the phone is constantly working to index it.
You ahould check this using the many apps that gives you information about the running processes like BBS, SystemPanel etc..

Like @Someguyfromhell said. Beginning with Android 4.2, Google has been continuously polling your location. Turn this off and you will eliminate a significant portion of your battery drain.

Indexing generally takes 1-3 hours, so just let it be until it's done. I'd recommend cooling it while indexing occurs, just so that you can reduce the battery strain.
