    on macbreak weekly they said John Paczkowski noted that the se ran hot in his hand

    Has anyone else heard this? Ipad 3 memories(which amounted to nothing except for a nice hand warmer) I guess the A9 doesnt like the reduced surface area

    Usually does upon setup for a day or so in my experience from alleged restoring, indexing, iCloud backup, library DL, et cetera.

    Personally I've never had an iPhone that ran hot unless I was playing a really graphic intensive game. I have a lot of trust in Apples quality control which has been built up with me over many years and with many different products.

    There always some people finding their device running hot at times here or there (especially after an update or adding new accounts or heavy and/or continuous use, depending on what's being used)--it really doesn't mean much in the sense of the product itself or any other of the millions upon millions of individual devices of that model. (At the very least not until quite a bit more actual observations are made and evidence is gathered.)

    My 5s ran warm the first day I had it and again it seems to run a little warm after each iOS update, if only for an hour or so. This could be due to indexing and synchronization with iCloud. Other than that, it runs cool most of the time.

    I would think with the SE's smaller form factor would mean less space for heat dissipation. Apple could slow the proc's clock speed a tad to compensate for this or simply improve the efficiency of the heatsink.

    Dip in ice water, cools it right down

    Oops don't forget to put in zip lock back first. Hope I didn't ruin anyone's phone.

    I always have cold hand and in winter just need something to keep hands warm in pockets. Do you think I could get deal buying two 5se at once. That way can keep both hands warm.

    You have to have expected this with the hot rod chip in the Camry body.

    My iP6S runs hot sometimes, most often resolved by shutting down the Sleep Cycle app.

    If you really wanted warm hands, you could buy an HTC One M9 : supposed to run nice and hot, powered by 'Octa-Core' technology !

    Cheers !

    I hate you both with the burning hot passion of a 1000 iPhone SE's.

    Give it a week, it'll run smooth and room temp.

    It can run warm as long as it does not thermal throttle!! Every other small, marketed as powerful alternative/bleeping Android phone I've tried did/does.

    Not a blast to Android, just to those that produce the phones running it.
