Default Why the hell my S4 gets so hot?

It gets very hot when I'm on the phone for about 20 minutes (twitter, youtube, just random surfing) and the back starts to overheat, I can boil a freaking egg!

What should I do? Is there something wrong with my battery or something? I do not want to spend a new battery because I've had this phone for less than a month. WTF is wrong with it. I am sick and tired of it, I should of waited for the new iphone..

Any help?

Can you take it back? My S4 doesn't get hot.

I have no warranty and I've bought it online too.

You might try and borrow another battery.

I have this as a spare, it doesn't last as long as the OEM battery though.

If it's not a gray market phone, Samsung gives a 1 year warranty on their phones, contact them via their web site.
