    My 4S gets SUPER HOT when I take it out of my pocket!!
    Then if I put it aside for several minutes, it cools down quickly.

    Do you guys also have similar problem?

    I'm wondering if it is a defect of my own device or a common hardware/software problem. (FYI, I've turned off the WIFI, still doesn't help..)

    Thanks!

    Thanks for all your replies!

    1, I do wear jeans, but just quite usual ones:)
    2, It doesn't always happen, 2 or 3 times yesterday, and once today
    Both in my office.
    Anything to do with the bad signal?

    I've noticed the 4S is much hotter than the 4....poss due to the dual processor. i wouldn't worry about it.

    Sure, it's a problem now, but wait until winter and it'll be a feature ;)

    What's wrong with tight jeans?

    it has to be better than the baggy jeans that people wear nowadays.
    As long as jeans aren't so tight that it defines your figure (male) then its fine.

    Is that an iPhone in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

    I noticed mine was really warm too. I was streaming music in the car for about an hour. My iPhone 4 never got that warm. I hope the heat doesn't end up damaging the battery or something else.

    Lol. One of the most ridiculous things I've ever read. Go back to 1912.

    i think it is from poor signal, the other day at work i put my phone in a room for a hour or two and came back and the phone was very hot and the battery was almost dead. i noticed the room i put it in had poor signal. so i guess it keep seaching for signal.

    I definitely notice my 4S gets much warmer than my iPhone 3G that I just replaced.

    You crazy kid, with your shoes and your pants, and your shirt, and your hat.


    Seriously, the iPhone does get warm in my opinion. Nothing to be bothered by, but noticably warm. My 4 was the same way.

    Location Services and iCloud are the likely culprits.

    I concur. Whenever I would try to stream music while on the road, the phone would get so hot you could barely hold on to it.

    The term SUPER HOT might be over doing it, maybe?:eek:
