    This thing gets HOT!

    I got my Droid X phone in the mail the other day and I have been setting it up with Apps and accounts.
    I have notice that the bottom of the phone get very hot after about 5 to 10 minutes of operation, is this normal with the Droid?

    It is like a small computer, processor and all, so yes it will get hotter than any other phone you have probably ever had, if it is new and you are running stock I would say it is nothing to worry about, hopefully someone who has an X can share their experience on it...I have the Original D and my phone gets warm but it has never been a concern

    That is really weird. My DX doesn't get hot at all, ever.

    I've had a case, either silicone or hard plastic on my dx since I got it. Haven't noticed it getting HOT though. Maybe warm...if you're doing a LOT on it, it stands to reason it's going to warm up though.

    Emitted from X.

    Thanks guys, think I'll be taking it to Verizon and see what they say about exchanging for another.. It really gets very hot at the bottom/back of the case... Will let you guys know how it turns out, again thanks for the replies to this issue I have with my DX...

    My Droid X gets hot but only when I'm doing a lot of things that requires high processing (like consently using adb and shelling into the phone to do things, consently transfer files back and forth through usb, etc.) but otherwise, when it just sits there idle with only turning on the screen to check if I've missed a call or text, it runs pretty cool, just like a normal computer tbh.

    How's the battery life. If something is wrong that is causing it to overheat it's most likely going to shorten the battery life tremendously.

    Why Doesn't Droid X have an internal temp sensor like my TIVO.

    The droid x does have an internal temp sensor.

    If you are still on 2.1, you may want to try to undervolt your phone. That will definitely lower your temperature.

    I don't have a case on my phone. That may be why it doesn't get hot. I know that my Droid 1 and Droid Incredible would get a lot warmer than my Droid X.
