Insight from other owners would be great! Thanks!
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
