Is your Samsung Galaxy S4 overheating?

A number of reports are coming out from Samsung Galaxy S4 users who are complaining about how hot their new handset is, literally. One user took the temperature of his new Android flagship unit and found it was running at 50 degrees Celsius, which is a positively red hot 122 degrees Fahrenheit. At that temperature, the phone is hard to hold or put against the ear for phone calls.
The units seem to heat up during game play or while browsing the web and more than one person complained of heat coming from the camera. One former Samsung Galaxy S II owner noted the same problem from that model. When he upgraded to the Samsung GALAXY Note II, he ended up with a much faster processor and no overheating issues. Thinking that Sammy had solved the problem, he swapped out the phablet for the Galaxy S4 only to find it overheating in almost every application.........
Just like we predicted, the A15 at 28-32nm is not a good phone processor. Luckily Intel will provide a sane alternative at 22nm (Silvermont) which is equally performant but at lower power and it is being shown off on Monday ;-).
