Even in safe mode it reaches temps of over 100F when using you tube.

115 to 125 is normal for most modern day phones running intensive operations.  You got to think; bigger screens, more cores, faster CPUs and GPUs.

How high over 100 degrees F?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Streaming video is going to tax any computer or phone.  I use gsam battery monitor and if I'm "playing hard" with the phone using apps for a long period of time or watching any video mine will regularly go to around 103 F or more.  I don't think that is really that hot or unusual.  Heck, I live in Phoenix and the outside temp can exceed 110, so if I'm outside a long time I know the phone is going to be over 100.  At rest, sitting on my desk inside an air conditioned building, my Turbo will drop to as low as 75.

I sit in an office that is kept at 70 or lower yet I can't even play a few

games of Ruzzle before the phone goes up to 105F

I see 115 regularly when playing games or HD video on my quad core 5.2 inch G2.  Doesn't sound too hot, however, I have a case on mine too, so it might stay warmer and also means I dont feel the heat.

I used to keep mine in an otterbox case but the temps were reaching over

120. So I don't keep it in a case anymore. I even turn the brightness all

the way down. I took a few apps off like my virus scanner, so far nothing

has helped. I think I am just gonna get the Note 5 when it comes out.

Yes Dirk, I think this is just normal for all these devices.  I don't think there is anything wrong with yours.  I just did a cache clear on mine which took about 20 minutes and when it came back on just sitting on a marble (cool) table it was 104 degrees.

Why does it take 20 min to do a cache clear?

I don't know why it takes that long on the Turbo.  When I had Samsung devices it only took maybe a minute.  Some are saying on other forums that it also re-formats the partition, which could be why it takes longer.  If you notice in the small letters on the bottom left while it is clearing it does say formatting.
