Thermal imaging of stressed Samsung Galaxy S4 shows the chassis rarely gets hot and bothered
A few rare heat cam snaps have emerged of the Samsung Galaxy S4, and they show that the device has good heat distribution, plastic or not, and temperature will rarely make it uncomfortable to hold, even under stress scenarios that boil the processor.

The thermal imaging shows that the S4 barely budged during heavy loads to 111 Fahrenheit (44 Celsius) at certain points, like around the earpiece and the Samsung logo on the back, which are not where you'd normally hold the phone. 

There was a pause between the various tests to let the device cool down, but even under significant stress like gaming, the processor heats the device at only lukewarm temps, it seems.
