Re: Overheating
Odds are something you are running is cranking hard on the processor. Take a look at apps you've installed and remove any you suspect. Worst case, do a security wipe and select the option to delete user installed apps. Then restore your data from a backup and reinstall and test apps one at a time.

Re: Overheating
On device go to Options, Device, Application Management is a great way to see what your apps are doing with your CPU usage on Smartphone. Just slide top bar to CPU and see what is going on. Also touch the CPU menu to see other time variables. I found out that an app was eating away CPU cycles on mine

Disable Compression on media card? go to Options, Device, Storage

using a custom theme? try it for a day the factory default one to rule out your theme

remember the esc key closes most apps, except for GPS and some chat clients. the other apps need to use menu and then exit or close. The farthest key to the right is a home key and does not close any apps per se but will end calls.
