I see the camera lens gets heated up after taking 5 to 6 snaps continuously. Also after using google maps & downloading some apps from play store, i see back side of the phone gets heated (not very extensive CPU operation).
Did anyone face similar issues?

Under heavy use this phone has to be the "coolest" running phone I've had in a long time. Even charging it gets warm, but not hot.

The phone getting warmer is normal with use, the camera is mostly software so it is CPU heavy.

If it's getting "hot" there's an issue. Remove the case if you have one on. See if that makes a difference.

Mine seems to be getting really warm too, after using it for a bit. I installed a temp monitoring app and my battery and you both go between 78-96f. Is that normal for this phone, or is it something that I should get an exchange over?

35C (or 96F) is nothing to worry about. That's actually cool compared to most other phones.

Good to know! It's been a long time since I've even thought about phone temps, let alone notice mine change.

Mine got heated initially for the first 2-3 days, and then it's been absolutely fine after that. I have the Indian Variant in case that helps.

Mine only rose 10F after using the camera for a little while. Went from 78F to 88F. I recorded video, took a ton of photos repeatedly.

Just for comparison, after about 45 mins of gaming it tops out at 96-97F.

My G6 is also heating up. Every time it heats up, I open the Battery Usage and stop "Media", just this one act makes the phone very cold in 2 minutes as if I have not used it for long time. What is this Media? how can I stop it automatically?

Sounds like you have a rogue app. I don't think I've ever seen my media do that.
