    If this becomes a common issue, it will most likely be addressed in a software update.

    Cpu monitoring show the temp at 40 degrees c which is quite hot if you put the phone to your ear

    Which back do u have ? I have Verizon black leather and it got warm when charging and when it downloaded 6300 pics from my laptop. I don't think it has the overheating issue (808 CPU) that the 810 CPU has. IMHO

    I think u r right. mine has never gotten warm there. It only gets warm lower down where the battery is. 102 deg. F is the highest I have seen.

    I've been at 100 F 2 or 3 times but it rapidly cooled off. Not sure what I was doing that would have caused it other than downloading app updates.

    My phone made it up to 103 F last night. It seems to like to stay around 85-98 for the most part. It actually died on me while charging, despite plugging it in at 11%. I'm pretty disappointed with this phone; it's less responsive than my S4 was and the battery life seems to be about the same as my S4 with a 2 year old battery.

    I noticed that my phone would get hot inside my pocket too. About a week ago I noticed that while in my pocket, it would turn on, make phone calls, send jibberish texts, start/stop apps and change music tracks if I was listening to music.

    I found that the "Knock On" feature was the issue. I contacted LG on how to disable it, but they said it couldn't be done. I found a video online that shows that it can. Since disabling it, my phone doesn't heat up any more and battery life has increased dramatically.

    On a typical 6 mile walk with my phone in my pocket and running a fitness tracking app and the music, the battery would drain 50% or more. Now it only drops about 8%.

    I have since switched to droid turbo as i could not deal with the overheating issues and bad antenna and repeat texting problems when battery was low and have tried to make the turbo emulate all the good features of the lg g4 and have done most except the hardware button on back i miss and the better resolution and the multitasking and split view features
