I'm not sure. But all the chips are located in the same area.

The 4G LTE chip (red) and the CPU (green) are very close together, so it could possibly amplify the problem.

That could probably explain the battery drain and the heat source. Ridiculous batt life it has though. Hopefully it doesnt overheat. At least for me.

The same thing happened with am s3 supposedly melting the micro usb connector. There was a big uproar over it. it turned out the guy didn't like the phone, so instead of trying to return it, he threw it in the microwave.

Tl;dr: the guy is an idiot burnt his house down and doesn't want to fess up, so he blamed his phone.
