Default Is Galaxy S3 getting hot at the bottom part after a long use?

Received my preorder galaxy s3 today from ATT.. It is simply amazing but device is getting hot at the bottom after prolonged use and while it is charging..

Is it just me or someone else is having similar issues..

Thanks So Much

Yes, mine gets mildly warm. But that's after extensive use. Not sure about charging--will check.

The processor is running at all times. Then you also have to take into account screen brightness. With my phone's I notice the amount of time to heat depends on the screen brightness. The brighter the screen the faster it gets warm.

Not hot at all. Video, browsing, calls, Skype. Being warm - yes, but it's normal

I had a few hours today when it was warm just sitting in my pocket while in meetings with the screen off, etc... it may have been busy sync'ing emails, but shouldn't have been working too hard yet was definitely warm. Had to take it out of my pocket and set it on the table to cool myself off...

Warm yeah. Uncomfortable NO. So far I am really enjoying my smartphone.

What's the normal phone temperature range where it's still ok.... My phone went up to 98degrees... Was uncomfortable for me to use
