AnonD-95388, 16 May 2013Bad luck !!!!!!!!!! I am also using S4,white colour no heating problem, battery last up to 3... moreHeating problem occurs mostly in playing heavy games not in texting or standby. It's an issue if they can't take the heat. Better put cover/shell casing. I hope in the next flagship phone's review they should include hours in gaming as well as the temp. So we will not be surprised

Samsung looks to cut the bloat, free up more Galaxy S4 storage
One of the more prominent criticisms of Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is that its preloaded apps clog up a lot of the device’s internal storage, to the point where only about half of the 16GB model’s storage space is actually available for use. A Samsung spokesperson now tells The Inquirer that the company is “reviewing the possibility to secure more memory space through further software optimisation” and “is committed to listening to our customers and responding to their needs as part of our innovation process.” All the same, it’s hard to imagine Samsung freeing up significant amounts of space on the Galaxy S4 since the company sees its own unique apps and services as a key part of differentiating the device from other high-end smartphones.
When news broke that the 16 GB Galaxy S4 only let you have access to 9 GB of the internal memory, users were rightfully a bit angry. It is understood that system partitions eat into some of our space, but gobbling up half of the storage promised is cause for concern. After Samsung suggested that people used SDcards to expand that space, it seems that they may be looking for another solution to the problem.
In speaking with CNET, a Samsung spokesperson said they are “committed to listening to our customers” and that they are “reviewing the possibility to secure more memory space through further software optimization.” There was no timetable given for this reviewing process and that doesn’t mean it will even come to fruition. If Samsung can find a way to cut down on the size of their partition, S4 users could see some storage coming back their way.
Gsmarena needs to address these heating posting , Gsmarena needs to test their S4 units and see if it turns hot like iron or if they have to take out the battery because the phone is too hot , it's one thing to dislike something , but these lies need to stop . how come my S4 has not ran hot or heat up from day one, go ahead and talk about plastic all you want words don't hurt me ,
