    It may get hot sometimes, depending on your carrier and reliability, don't be surprised.

    As for battery draining too quickly, I might have to get back to you on that, after I do some battery tests on my own 5S on 4G...

    I don't think phones hot to the touch is normal. If a phone is warm to the the touch it's all good.

    I get about full network here..and it doesn't heat up on wifi connection..only when i use 3g it heats up too much..because of the heating problem the battery is also dying very quickly.other than that everything is fine.

    It figures, because using data on a cellular does create heat more than usual, simply because in low coverage areas the phone compensates by working harder to get running hence the heat.

    It's normal to me, the heat...not your carrier's fault.

    I must say if you have a better carrier in your country go for it. That would help a little, but Im not sure if it's worth all that hassle.

    I would leave it if it was me..

    Thanks a lot dude that helped ..i hav a factory unlocked iphone ..so it won't be a problem to change carriers..i can just simply port to another carrier and keep the same phone number as well 😊.even i get the same amount of usage time on heavy use.
    Being a doctor i must confess that I'm too obsessed with my iphone at times 😜.

    Mine doesn't heat up. I have heard of some iPhones getting warm. If your concerned about it then take it to a nearby Apple store. Good luck.

    I get about 10 hours total on moderate use on 4G. I think it isn't bad.

    Could be many factors, carrier, location, the services you enable on your phone...if you detail exactly what you have running and what carrier you are on, maybe I can help you out.
