Anyone having Problem with their Iphone 5 being too hot?

Well I am. I left home this morning for work and I was streaming radio on Tunein Radio App for about 45 Minutes on ATT HSPA+ "LTE was turned off for battery purposes" and my phone got real hot from streaming. But today wasn't the first time either, it's happened the last 4 times i streamed on My new phone since Friday.

Another issue during the Stream my battery went from 100% to 80% in just 45 minutes of listening to music on the APP. Anybody else have these issues?

Here. Hour and a half drive using navigation and streaming music connected to power. Same on trip back without the charger. New maps rocked tho!

I'm having the same issues. I drive almost 50 miles each way to work and i stream FM Radio to my car speakers. By the time i reach office, the phone gets too hot. I went and showed the same in Apple showroom, they verified and said, there is nothing wrong, but if i want, they can replace the phone.

I went ahead and got a replacement phone, but with the new phone also, 'm having the same problem. Is it an issue with A6 chip? Or charger or what? I'm excited with new phone, but very disappointed with this heating problems.

I've never run into an issue, ever. And I run the phone so hard between nav and streaming that it actually goes from 100% to 50% in a few hours on the car charger.

Do you guys live in hot climates?

I live in Sweden (it's snowing right now) and mine gets hot aswell. I have done some testing and it appears it gets like this when on 3G/4G, never on Wifi... shame really

My initial phone and my replacement also have this problem, even when im only browsing safari it gets hot and battery drains quickly, i only get 4-5 hours of usage.

When my phone was using gps in the car and in the sunlight, there was an actual warning on the screen saying the phone was too hot.
