Was curious if anyone else noticed this particular spot gets pretty hot when updating the OS and apps. It seems those two are the prime suspects. Sometimes charging will also do it.

Or is it just me?

Yes that's generally where the processor is, and seems like it's normal for this phone. It does seem like it gets a bit warmer than previous phones, but this is the monster A10 processor stuffed into a phone here we are talking about, lol.

Ah yes.. makes sense. For some reason I was thinking that area was just the battery. Doh. Flipping it over messed with my head a little. Lol. Yes, the processor is literally right there.
