A bunch of thermal images of the Galaxy S4 have appeared online, showing that Samsung’s Android flagship handset will rarely be a problem to handle.

The Galaxy S4 went through several different stress scenarios, including gaming, 3G internet browsing, HD video playback and continuous camera usage. Truth be told, we were rather surprised to find out that the smartphone managed to keep its cool on most of these cases.

The lower part (where you usually hold it) barely exceeded 20 degrees Celsius, while things got a bit hotter at the top, but the peak temperature stood at 42.6 degrees Celsius (108.7 degrees Fahrenheit) on just a single occasion.

This means that although the S4 might feel a bit unpleasant to your left hand if you hold it in landscape for a ridiculous amount of time, the smartphone is guaranteed not to cause any issue in every other circumstances.
