    OTA fixed hotspot! Now, which phone should I keep?

    Yea! People should know: Installed the OTA and the hotspot will now allow tethered devices to open perviously blocked websites, i.e. Yahoo Mail.

    Now, if only my phone didn't get so hot on 4G. I've only had it a couple of days and it was doing that even before today's OTA. It is a replacement I got within my 14 day return window after my first phone's battery was under-performing. Now, I have to put one of these phones postmarked back in the mail by tomorrow's 14-day deadline and I'm not sure which one to send back

    A) The one with a hotter battery -- battery runs at about 32-ish degrees and more with heavy twittering/browsing on 4G-- now all set up as I like it

    Or

    B) The one with what turns out to be only a little less of a lasting battery on 4G

    Votes??

    32 deg C? Am I misunderstanding? As far as I know that's not hot at all. All of my androids easily push 32-42 C when using heavy data. My Maxx is no exception.

    The first Maxx, with the lesser battery life, never got over 30 degrees that I could tell. After a half-hour of video, for instance, I noted that that one would still be around 29 degree and would feel like nothing. I guess what alarms me is how hot the other one actually feels. I got the battery temperature numbers from Circle Battery widget but not sure how accurate/relevant/normal that is. Thanks for your response...
