    Man this thing feels good in the hand!

    The screen is just beautiful too, very pleased!

    How about the heat? Does it get as hot as everyone is saying? (Specifically when streaming videos or playing games)

    In my experience with iPhones the warm feeling goes away after a little bit of use.

    Ah okay. I guess there's some sort of software housekeeping that goes on during the first hour or so of use?

    It's a 64 bit computer, with a HD screen, and it's under 7mm thick.

    A little heat is expected.

    Apple will have tested it under all conditions, and the heat won't be a problem.

    Indexing!

    Plus I am pretty sure when we all get it at first we won't stop using it constantly for a little while.

    I don't think logical thinking is allowed here on MacRumors, so let this be your first warning and grab your pitchforks :p

    I totally agree with you two, a lot is happening at first with indexing and people just wanting to use the device at first.

    Side note: awesome picture OP.

    Yes, it gets a little warm but at the minute I am restoring from iCloud.

    I'll wait until it's done and then see but I'm not worried.

    UPDATE:

    iPhone has finished restoring from iCloud and mine is as cool as a cucumber!

    It's amazing it gets so warm in your hand since it's only a 5 incher!

    We have this heat argument for every phone. I remember when I first got my 5s I thought it was running warm but I haven't thought about the heat from the 5s until I read this thread.

    Aside from my glowing first impressions, having just taken this phone round town with my baby shopping, I think i'm going to need a case.

    I never have cases on my stuff usually, but this is rather slippery.

    Hopefully that's the case. My quadcore, HD Galaxy S4 with 2GB of RAM doesn't get nearly as hot as some of iPhone 6 heat-related posts here would lead me to believe.

    Overtime you get a new phone you will feel the heat during the first hours.
