My s4 does get pretty hot when its charging, I sometimes actually unplug it just to let it cooldown for a bit then charge it up again...

Kind of ironic there's an ad for a Galaxy s4 case on this page.

It's called contextual advertising.

As i said before Samsung is a piece of shit brand that infested the world and it breaks when you expect the least.

This is from a Chinese so its possible he is using knock-off batteries which is very very and i mean very common in china.

Um, so his galaxy catches on fire, he throws it on his couch, which spontaneously combusts, and his apartment blows up and the debri landing on and destroyed his Mercedes. What incompetent fool believed this guys story? People really believe this happened? News flash, maybe he wants insurance money, and wants to SUE samsung.
