I have done my research, and have found no solutions to my phone overheating. I've had the phone since July 2014, and I really started to notice that the phone over heated a lot in January 2015, and the battery life getting shorter and shorter.
Today in fact, my phone got so hot it was actually that hot that I couldn't really touch it. In the last few hours it has been hot, and has not cooled down. There are about 2 apps running on my phone: Settings and Safari.
