    My battery overheats after using phone for over 20 minutes of usage. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Not at all. I've run net flix for 4+ hours in a case without any real heat issues.Thinking you have a defective phone or battery. I'd have it replaced.

    It's not necessarily overheating, but getting hot... It's a powerful processor in there, when it gets going, it generates a lot of heat.
    Turning it from Performance to Normal in the Power Settings will probably help alleviate that so it doesn't run full tilt all the time.

    My phone warms up a bit, it only happened once and it was in a case. I took it out of the case to feet a better feel and it wasn't nearly as hot as my D2G used to get. The D2G was xbox 360 hot sometimes.

    My battery over heats, while on charger. Then it will reboot over and over again until I pull the battery and let it cool down and then do a factory rest.:angry: Its going back today finally for a new one, on the 14 return policy.

    I called them and told them about it and because it's its under a month they're having me just add10 dollars and I'm getting the 3000 watt instead of the 1800 that came with it that will be like 75 percent more power do that

    I'm thinking of getting an extended battery, but I think jumping from 1800 to 3000mAh will be a brick like it was on my OG droid... I liked the extended battery for my D2, it wasn't a huge jump, but it also wasn't much bigger then stock.

    Your battery may be getting hot, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's "overheating". As per email from HTC Tech Support, for the Rezound a battery temp of 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees F) or lower is within normal limits. Dial *#*#4636#*#* and hit "Battery Information". You'll get a continuous readout of battery temp. Better yet, just download Phone Overheat Alert . Keep the main window of the app displayed while you're charging and monitor the battery temp. This will show you if your battery is heating within normal specs. Mine gets warm as it nears a full charge. Once fully charged, it cools drastically. However, the heating is ALWAYS within specs. HTC said once your phone is fully charged, it switches to battery power. It does NOT trickle charge. Download Battery Notifier (Big Text). It shows battery level in increments of 1%. It also changes colors as the charge depletes. If you'll notice, once your charge reaches 100%, if you use the phone even though still plugged in, the charge will sometimes drop to 98 or 99%. This confirms what HTC told me....that it's using the battery and not AC once the battery reaches full charge.

    It have both extended and a standard battery and it does it on both. Not all the time but enough to raise concern. I have a battery widget that gives the temperature of the battery.
