S7 Not Alarmingly Warm

In reply to: Anybody else have a Samsung S7 that gets really hot?

My S7 gets a little warm with heavy use but other than that it stays cool. I have a fast charger that works if you have a Qualcomm processor and it gets a little warm when I use that but not enough to be concerned. I'm just glad that I didn't get the S7 Note and I almost did!

I had an s7 that got realy hot after about four months of use with just web browsing & checking out social networks.I had to bring back to best buy for another one in august cause it was over heating too much & the battery was draing quickly.I would suggest bringing it back for a new one.My new one does not overheat.

I don't have an S7, I have a Note 4,but you can go to Settings / General / Battery and see which applications have used the battery the most. The normal state would be for no application to use more than 20 % of the battery, and those on top should be Screen, Android, etc. Some apps go rogue - in the past I discovered that the Facebook Messenger was draining my battery (and as a consequence overheating it) and I removed it. Same with Snapchat.
Also, not sure who your provider is, mine is AT&T. I once called their tech support and found out that they can remote in your device, with your permission, and check the device's state, including its temperature. The tech on the phone may not know a lot about how to solve a potential problem, but the information about the device's temperature can be useful to determine if it's hot within normal range or too hot, indicating that something is indeed wrong.
Good luck.

This is very good advice.

Having lost count of overheating and battery time issues resolved by removing apps gone wild (rogue), all I can add is that victok1 has great advice here.
