Everything fine now
Just thought I'd let you know after re-formatting the card:
Complete format with windows, then erase card on the SGS4, which then complained that my card must be formatted, so I formatted it with the phone.
I've been going with the original "faulty" card for more than a week now, and I have had no overheating issue. All the files (except the corrupted files) that were on the card when the problem occurred are back on it. And no issue.

Hope this helps!

Cheers!

1.this is a 7.9mm phone
2.the back cover is thin as a sheet of paper
3.the sdSlot has been installed behind the processor (for speed reasons) and it's made of metal components so there s heat transmission

just replace your cover with the stock one of the 9505 black edition and tell me ..anyway i wanna try this solution tnx in advance

You're not wrong at all, but the fact here is that there was a real problem: it was really hot AND there was a huge drain on the battery, which changing the back cover wouldn't have solved.

Besides, I no longer need to do anything, since after formatting the card, it's back to normal, i.e. no overheating. But you're right that heat reaches the surface of the back cover when e.g. downloading or watching streamed videos for some time.

Cheers!
