Over Heating? WTF?
Let me start of by saying. I was a BB owner. I purchased my Droid X and I LOVE IT (said in a very high pitch!). Only one issue I cant seem to figure out.
Sometimes I will lock the screen, put the phone away (my pocket, my laptop bag, etc.) come back to the phone and the battery is almost dead and the temp program (battery left) says the temp is 110 degrees F. This doesn't happen every time. From what I can tell it only seems to happen when I lock the phone with the music player (the stock player and the cube3 one, and I have tried them both) paused.
I have also noticed that the cpu gets REALLY hot when I play music on it or if I play certain (but not all) games. Like really hot. And to make it worse, once the phone gets hot, it seems to stay hot.
Anyone else had this issue or do I just have bum phone?
Thanks in advance
Do you leave your GPS on?
Well go into your battery management it will tell you what's use the most battery life.
I'm assuming either your body heat and poor circulation is getting the battery to drain.
Or you have a app that is running out of control.
no I don't leave GPS running.
Android System 33%
Android OS 20%
Boot Animation 10%
everything else is >10%
But I must admit I rebooted the phone. Next time it heats up that is where I will check first. Is this a common problem? I talked my wife into an incredible and her phone never does this.
What phone do you have? I know someone that had a droidx and barely any use the battery would only last 4 hours.
Sometimes this would happen to me. Not using the music player or anything. I use System Panal and sometimes my CPU would be stuck at running at max 1000 for no reason, and get really hot. I would have to turn it off/on. Idk why randomly the CPU gets stuck like that, but i would end all apps and it would still say 100%. But maybe thats the same problem. or maybe its app related. idk just my 2cents
Cooch 33 where did you got to check the CPU % and what phone you got?
I have a Droid X. And I must say, with this SOLE exception of it heating up and draining the battery, I love it. I just find this issue to be rather annoying.
I have droidx and just checked my CPU and show it sitting at 0.0 CPU
I have the droid X and you can check with the system panal app. You dont even need the full version. The the top left shows CPU% and the top right shows your CPU clock. Sometimes it'll just stay at 100, 99.9% and 1000clock. And i'll have to reboot to make it stop.
