    So my 42MM SS ML arrived today. Looks great and all that Jazz. Then it started. The volume is very low on phone calls and audio messages, no taptic feedback or chimes when I get an email or iMessage, this is when the phone is locked. However some notifications such as whatsapp do come in.
    The main problem is it won't charge. And when the charger is connected, it says it's charging but it's not. Oh and it gets warm, the ceramic back is actually heating up when plugged in.

    The thread title says "overheating". Is it overheating or getting warm? When electricity is passing between two surfaces there is some contact resistance and it does generate some heat. But a big difference between warm and overheating.

    Ok it got warm. But I've since rebooted it and it seems to be charging now. Weird.
