Depends on how long.

 

Most smartphones tend to heat up greatly after extended usage of Satellite Navigation.

 

Nothing to worry about unless it overheated in less than 4 minutes.

 

You can probably reduce the heat by using extended usage mode in Stamina mode.

 

It underclocks CPU so less heat will be produced.

Re: Overheating problem

Agree with the above. Far too much attention on this forum to the phone getting warm when used for extended periods.

 

If nothing is going wrong then I tend to ignore it. HTC's with their aluminium frames are the same in my experience.
