    I have the 7 plus and it seems to get really hot on basic use, especially up by the sleep button on the right hand side.

    Does anybody else's? I've been on my phone a while just browsing and texting and right now it's seriously hot (and also got the buzzing).

    Normally I have my phones in a case but I'm still waiting on mine to arrive so maybe it's normal and I just don't know it?

    My 7 plus doesn't get any warmer than my 6s plus did of my 6 plus did.

    My 7 gets warm on that side occasionally. Often when viewing instagram, for example. But it's never been hot. iphones have a pretty reliable temperature shut off that kicks in when things are too toasty -- I say this based on past experience haha. So I'd say you're probably fine.

    I actually found that my iPhone 7 is getting less hot than my iPhone 6s. Of course it gets a bit warm after heavy usage, but it isn't anything like what I've experienced with the iPhone 6s. And believe me, I have really tried pushing the 7 to its limits. Let out with regular, daily usage.

    So like the one above me says, it doesn't seem normal. I'm not sure how long you've been having yours, but if it's just one or two days old, I'd say: wait for another few days. If your iPhone still gets very hot at less usage, you should definitely get Apple to fix it or something.

    I'm on day 2 with my 7+ and so far never experienced the phone getting hot. Only lukewarm when turning it on and setting it up the first time. Other than that it's been cool.

    My 7 runs exactly the same as my 6s. Have not encountered any unusual heating.

    It did when restoring and indexing. After that it ran same as my iPhone 6.
