If the heat problem is causing the battery drained, then you should go and have a check. If you still doubt, better send to service center to verify the problem.

I wanted it "big", so why not a 7 Inches ASUS Fonepad?
It could be a cheaper solution, I thought.
Never more.
It is very bad as phone, and very bad as tablet too!

With android 4.3 it was unusable.
On full power signal, when placing a call always caused a complete connectivity loss.
The same with an incoming call
And I had to reboot the device to get the connectivity back.
Often more than once.
ASUS wanted me to be after a RMA procedure, with absurd conditions, to have the tablet "repaired".
This after less than a month of life.
So, no after market real support.
With Android 4.4.2 KitKat the things go on a little better.
This proves nothing was wrong with my tablet, as I supposed, it is so "by design".
Se signal is always poor, whereever I am, but the connectivity loss happens less often.
And it takes back after waiting 10 sencods, at least.
Sound quality isn't very bad, but you cannot this use as a phone without an headset.
As a tablet doesn't perform very well.
The touch screen isn't very sharp and it runs very slow.
When you play "Plants Vs Zombies 2" in a very crowdy level, for istance, the tablet starts runnig very slow and it almost stops.
At the end, it is very "big".
This 7 inches tablet is almost as large and long as the Samsung Galaxy TAB3 of 8 inches of my little doughter that runs flowlessly and also have phone capabilities.
And the Fonepad is very thicker, and heavier, too.

If the correct APN does not appear, then re-start the Fonepad, and let the Fonepad auto select the APN.
After connecting to the correct APN, the network should be ok.
Don't worry if you can't connect to 3G network, as there are weaker reception at some area.

Even connect to weak 3G signal, it will get hot.

If the battery is not drained very fast (empty juice within few hour, even not using), then it is consider normal.

Fonepad can last for more than 2 days on moderate use.

I would say, only few manufacturer now have removable battery.
Samsung is having removable battery and memory card slot for all of their smartphone range. (except their tablet, which is non-removable too)
HTC, ASUS, Sony, LG, Nokia, Apple, Huawei, OPPO, Xiao Mi also building their phone with non-removable battery.

I know this is a trend for phone maker, but not for consumer. We can complain, but end up we can't force them to switch back to make removable battery.

This phenomena is driving another trend, the birth of power bank, which is now as popular as the phone purchase.

If you really can't wait, try finding the LTE version.
