    My DROID bionic gets pretty warm for some reason. Not running alot of apps. Might be on the phone for a little while and it still gets warm.

    Is any of this normal?

    There"s alot factors @ play here
    Examples
    Weather hot/cold
    3g/4g
    In pocket long/short time
    On/off charger
    Direct sun light/in shades
    Screen brightness
    Wifi tether on/off

    Its normal for any arm dual core phones temp @ 85-100°f depending on the factors above
    A few time i hit 127°f :icon_eek: When i was using wifi tether , charging, room temp 85°f

    Anything that draws power will heat the battery and other components. The three big draws are the screen, transmitters, and the CPU. Moving a lot of data or talking on the phone will use all three, and it will get hot.

    I've noted that talking on the phone seems to heat mine up the most.
