    Since I updated to 7.1.1 (setup as new), this days i feel it that the phone is warm while i use it on wifi, fb , tapatalk, safari , instagram etc ...
    That never happened before on 7.0.6 to warm up using it on wifi, but on 3g yes..

    Any ideas?

    When your device has a weak signal it sometimes causes this issue or it could be one of your apps is constantly requesting a location

    That is an issue on pretty much any phone I've owned. It's usually to do with the reception the phone is getting like Kataran said. If you aren't near any towers and trying to get information, the phone can heat up pretty fast trying to reach that far away tower.

    I will say that there are some apps that just plain eat up battery and heat up the phone. Rival Knights is one of those on my iPhone. Within 5 minutes of playing it, the upper back part of the phone is almost too hot to touch. I ended up uninstalling the app due to that issue.

    Another app that heats up the phone that I deleted also because of no updates: the original Battleship that isn't updated for the screen size of the 5 series.

    Bars have nothing to do with data, that just shows how good call reception is. So it very we'll could be that you have a weak data signal.
    Speedygi and kataran like this.

    No problem here either. It could be because your device is constantly searching for a better signal. Try clearing your apps out.

    Yes it's normal for a phone to get warm while charging.

    Yes. That's only slightly over body temp. It's normal.
