Hello folks,

I find myself wondering if I've got something going on with my phone or if it is just me. I find that the device gets very hot with little usage. I find it hot by the camera/led, but it's definitely hot throughout. I know it's not easy to confirm if it is, as there are variables. But if anyone has noticed it, it would help me with my decision to return it for a new device.

Insight from other owners would be great! Thanks!

I've got the ATIV S too, mine doesn't get hot at all.

I used to have the Samsung Focus, and that one did get hot by the camera when playing games, and it would occasionally reboot if it got too hot.

I do the exact same things on my ATIV S now and it doesn't even get warm.

I can confirm that - a friend of mine bought (i intend to buy one for me in the days to come) an ATIV S, and in certain cases it really gets hot in the zone just beneath the camera/LED. I don't think it's going to be a showstopper problem, but still we could say it's rather design flaw, then a real showstopper problem. but one thing is almost 100% certain - it's not a certain unit (yours in that case) problem. I suspect the plastics is not spreading the heat well enough as it was with the aluminum Omnia 7 for an example. Still - Quallcom's processors are known for years, that are always hotter than the equivalent ARM chip. I guess it's a matter of perspective - if it's a problem for you, and you can return/replace it - do it. If it's not such big of a deal - just enjoy your new phone

Getting hot - software issue
Hey guys,

I discovered that in my ativ s, with gdr3 preview for developers that it gets crazy hot only when screen rotation is turned on.
So I turned it off and no problem now.

Please let me know if you have the same issue.

cheers

Mine gets somewhat hot when I play games, which is normal.
