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?

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?

If you disabled any apps you need to go back and clear data and force stop them. Also force stop android system. If yiu don't use smart settings clear it's data and force stop as well as myplaces and myplaces engine.

Also go to media storage and clear it's data. Then you will need to rescan the media using a media scanning app(not sure if it requires root), if so just reboot. You'll have to reset your ringtones and what not but might help stop it from scanning constantly. How big is your sdcard and how many files are on it?

when i accidentally click on a 3rd party camera app like Open Camera and don't know it it gets real hot real fast. I don't know why it is. the stock camera never gets that hot even with shooting tons of video at the concert the other night.

mine was getting warm sometimes but found it to be problem with apps/task running in background incorrectly (Greenify was my issue), uninstalled and phone remains cool even under quite heavy use.

I dont know how much will this affect, but I think using 3G/4G instead of wifi also makes the device get warm / hot faster..

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

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

    I have no problems at all. Phone stays cool all the time, even when playing games
