Anyone else's getting hot to touch after bit of use? I took off my dot case after fifteen minutes of use and the back was almost too hot to touch. Even with the case off it never cooled down. I'll check my wife's phone to compare tonight.

Definitely something wrong with the phone you have. This is by far the coolest running phone I've ever had. Doesn't get even remotely hot.

This! I have the incipio dual pro case which is basically 2 cases in one and still doesn't get hot after 15+ minutes of straight dead trigger 2 gaming full graphics! While connected to 4g LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.

Can install GSam battery monitor for free. Nice to see battery info in the drop down notification screen and will tell you how hot the battery is. People can have different "opinions" on the definition of hot but this way will give you an actual number. Under heavy use my device gets to 97 degree F. Believe that is the highest i've seen it get so far. Will try and play some dead trigger 2 for a solid 15min or so and check battery temp, that will get it high if anything else would!

I can say though coming from an HTC One X+ with overclocked Tegra 3 chip, that phone got up to 120 degrees F, that is freaking hot! Not a bunk device, just made with poor design as the Tegra 3 chip was never made for mobile devices, especially overclocked. Got in over my head with that device!

My silver model gets toasty with moderate use. My brothers grey is always ice cold though.

Well according to the battery monitor my phone was dropping voltage ridiculously high so I'm going to install a battery monitor and keep an eye on it and see if I can duplicate the problem I'm still not sure what it was but I do know that I was in an area that should have had 4G in the highest setting I got was 3G not sure if that causes an issue or not but it's something I'll keep an eye out

I can tell my phone will get slightly warm after some use but nothing crazy.
