    Take a look at the attached screenshot and let me know if this is normal or not. I should note that I had the phone plugged into a car charger and the navigation was running.

    It is definitely hot and I would not want my phone getting there often but it does happen from time to time. Especially under circumstances like charging and running navigation. Much hotter then that or extended periods of time would worry me. Not sure what the cut off would be though.

    That's about ~110°F I believe, and that's pretty hot. I was just plugged in using navigation the other day and my phone got petty warm, but nowhere near that. Are you on the stock rom? I noticed my phone got extremely hot from use when I was stock, but once I flashed CNA my phone doesn't nearly get that hot anymore.

    Charging and rock'n the cpu like that will get hot every time. I get near that temp pretty often when playing certain games. Good thing the phone is thin so it can cool down quickly!

    I agree that it is hot but with how intensive those activities are I would not say out of the ordinary. I have gotten all of my devices to that temp and not had issues. I would not want it to stay there for a long time but IMO you are ok.

    Being plugged in seems to have nothing to do with it. I just used it again without charging simultaneously and it increased to 44 C again. Maybe I should dust off my old Garmin.

    Is that a stock screen? I don't see a "Battery Info" screen in my settings. I am stock.

    I learned that somewhere here on the forums.

    People were overclocking their Droid X getting up to 120° with no issues.
