I have just purchased this mobile at the beginning of this month. I've not experienced any over heating problems. The only time it heats up is when I put it on turbo charge. A word of advice: After having watched multiple review videos for the moto g4 plus, I have learned that it is not a phone that is too be used harshly. That is you cannot have too many apps running in the background as this could be the cause for it to heat. I run multiple apps but make sure to close them immediately once I'm done but this is not a bother to me.
