Hi guys, I'm new here. I'm very happy with my Galaxy S, however last night, I was using the music player while falling asleep like I've been doing every night for 2 months since I've gotten it. Halfway through the night, I woke up and it was crazy hot. That can't be normal. Any tips?

Welcome;D  Please check out the forum rules. Also check out the how to thread for some great tips. For troubleshooting, check this posting notice before using the search function so see if someone’s asked your question before. If you are having problems after upgrading to Froyo try following these directions

How hot is crazy hot? I've heard of people's phones getting up to 43C. v. warm to touch but doesn't damage phone. Get SGS Toolbox and use it when your battery feels really hot. There's a temperature readout in the battery section.

It was definately warm to the touch. It's never happened before, nor have I experienced any other problems.

Probably just due to continuous use. As long as it quickly cooled there's likely nothing wrong.

Is your 3G on?

I suggest letting it rest, 3G is the biggest hog on your battery and will heat your battery the most.

The other Big spender is the Graphics Chip, If you are playing games it will heat up.

If your Music player has a very graphic intensive layout this might be the reason.

I suggest Turning 3G off and then when you want to listen to music press play and turn off the Screen.

This should keep it cool.

Peace.

I would suggest that you download SGS Tools from the market, apply script, clean_thumb_db.txt This script basically cleans up your SD so it can be more efficient and not have to make so much effort finding things.
Also, set your wifi to "never when plugged in" and, if you have setCPU, set your lowest clock speed at 100mhz and your setting to conservative.
Worst comes to worst, it may be your external SD card that's causing the problem. If the card is damaged, that's usually the culprit of excessive heat.

That's probably the CPU trying to keep up with you.

The same thing happens to my Galaxy S when I'm being particularly demanding of it (such as when I'm using the Music Player, while surfing for a couple of hours on a 3G network), so I don't think it's anything out of the ordinary.

I used to think it was the battery that was heating up, until I realized that the heat was emanating from the upper half of the phone's back, which is where the CPU and peripheral parts are located.

Just don't overwork your phone, and you'll have no problems, I think.

Keep cool Happy)
