after long usage? mine gets noticeably warm
I notice this too. It seems to happen the most for me if I browse the internet while streaming internet radio. I notice it even more through the keyboard on the left side than through the back.
I've only had the phone a few days, but today I did notice it getting warm when using the music player. Can't imagine why that would have done it, so maybe it was just the length of time I had it in use.
Previous Motorolas I've owned have gotten pretty warm with extended use or with charging. The Krazr really got hot.
Well, the only reasons I can think of it's just drawing that much electricity and getting hot OR the processor is going that crazy OR the audio controller gets hot easy. That large speaker, that enormous screen, and plenty of data usage and multitasking WOULD use up a lot of electricity fast. I've seen it get hotter though when I do this kind of thing and it's plugged it.
OK lemme rephrase- If you tax the processor, it will get hot. If you use 3G for an extended period, it will get hot. If you use GPS for a while, it will get hot. If the battery drains quite a bit in a short period, it will get hot. Screen and speaker shouldn't get hot. It's normal in the smartphone world. You will get used to it. It's actually a good notification of how much you are taxing your battery.
Yes, but we're curious people( I am at least ) and we'd like to know the exact part that's getting hot. I do agree though, if you do things that use a lot of energy, it gets hot.
