    Is there anyone else in here who has the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and has observed this heating problem?

    I've only used my phone for light stuff like browsing Technobezz, Twitter, Reddit, etc., but doing so causes my phone to noticeably warm up as if doing some heavy duty stuff, especially if on max brightness.

    It heats up faster/easier than my iPhone 5s. Anybody else noticing this? I am considering to go to my network carrier tomorrow and tell them about it, but just want to make sure.

    I have the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and from my experience so far it gets quite hot when downloading a lot of apps in a row.

    While browsing the internet it gets warm but not very hot.

    Yes, it is the same here. While updating apps from the play store, watching videos the S6 Edge will cause the back side, at the middle section to heat up. I guess it is something that is intended and there is no need for you to go and ask for warranty.

    Running a lot of apps at once in the background can also cause overheating because the phone is working overtime to keep everything running. Try seeing if you can turn some features off to save some battery power, which can also stop it from heating as quickly.

    The more you try to do with a phone at once, the hotter it's going to get. Smartphones aren't that great at dispersing heat, especially since manufacturers don't really do much to disperse said heat. Perhaps the Snapdragon 810 SOC really does heat up more than other processors, but all smartphones are going to get at least warm to the touch during active use. Excessive heat is caused by more processes, a higher screen brightness, poor thermals for the device, and potentially the processor itself.

    For the S6 Edge, I have no idea.

    I've known about this problem quite a lot, where Samsung products often get a lot of heating. I hope one day they will fix this problem by inventing some good technology to cool it down. As long as your phone doesn't shut off it's alright though. I also would recommend you to get one of those good cases that maintain the coldness and not increase the heat, because cases can make it worse.

    The device getting warm is a common issue but nothing to worry about. It won't have any impact on the performance of the device if that's what your main worry is.

    As others have already said, the more your phone does, obviously the more the processor will have to work so making sure you limit what your doing at one time will help, but really you'll be able to do as much as you want without it being affected.

    It gets a little warm for me too but it's manageable. It hasn't heat up to the point where it's unusable yet and I hope it stays this way.

    It shouldn't affect the performance of the device. I even think in some of the literature that comes with the phone, it even says the device will get warm. It's common, don't worry...

    Well, if the device gets really warm then the processor is manufactured to throttle down it's speeds to ensure that the phone doesn't get damaged. That's the problem with the SD 810 processor.

    Which is an issue that's been mentioned quit a few times on this forum.

    And I might add, something Qualcomm STILL haven't managed to find a definite fix for...

    My S6 Edge is having severe heating problem that even my fingers tips have burn marks. When I went to the service centre, they say it is normal for the handset to heat upto 48 degree celsius.......48 degree celsius ????? Are they kidding. A normal human being cannot stand with that temperature outdoors. If this problem is not resolved from Samsung I would be taking a strict legal action. I am a senior citizen and they have made me run from one service centre to the other. This has cost me lot on mental agony and my business has also suffered to wastage of time running and waiting at the service centres.

    This is a very serious problem. I had this problem with my Iphone 5. My battery started bulging out after a while and my screen stopped responding because of it.
