    Hmm I haven't been able t notice a difference in heat. The speed and snappiness of it is amazing though. This phone just blazes

    Mine seemed to be pretty hot when it was downloading all my apps this morning. I'm not sure if thats different though, I've had a case on my 4 since day one.

    How about as a test you try charging via the wall adapter and see if there is any difference?

    I did it does get hot but not as quickly but the phone does seem to get pretty hot with constant use on wifi like my hands getting moist while using it no big deal but just something that lets me know the processors working hard I guess

    Doesn't charging it while using it cause the processor to get hot anyway? I know my iphone 4 gets toasty when wall charging and im searching facebook/twitter or playing games.

    I just made the switch from Android to the iPhone 4S and my phone is getting hot just by sending texts, turning wifi and an occasional phone call or two. My battery started at 68% and its now 29% after 4 hours. I have the white 64G. Its an amazing phone so smooth and no random reboots like my old thunderbolt, any hints?

    i know under realistic usage instead of constantly using it while it being brand new will show better battery life but i do see that it gets hot easily and from my experience with android the hotter the phone the faster the battery drain

    edit: it does seem to cool off extremely fast tho after putting it on the charger for like 2 minutes it wasn't even warm any more i guess the a5 processor is working extra hard maybe its good apple under clocked it

    The original iPhone 4 got just as hot. I'm pretty impressed with its power use. I am only just now charging it after 5 hours of almost constant use.

    But yeah, iPhone 4 always got hot for me - this one is really no more or less.

    funny thing is it only gets extremely hot sometime it's not consistently over heating

    My 4S never got hot and I restored it from a backup of my 4 that had about 700 songs a few movies and too may apps to count. Maybe it has something to do with batches or where they were made.
