    Unless its burning you, nothings wrong.

    I saw the fail point mentioned in an official TI document about the OMAP3430 when this topic came up before a few months ago. Essentially if youre phone is too hot to handle comfortably for a few minutes, then somethings wrong. Otherwise dont worry about it.

    So far the new one seems to be doing pretty good, but while playing around I noticed that I am getting two different temperatures. Any idea why?


    Edit...
    Tried to attach a screen shot, but it won't let me

    Edit #2....
    Trying again...

    Phone gets very hot when streaming netflix over 4g.

    Watched a show that was about 22 min lond and battery temp was 133 degrees. This is with the extended battery and no case.

    I hope this doesn't become a problem because what's the point of having a phone that may become damaged from simply streaming over 4g?

    That's one that I'd exchange. I've streamed video for my daughter on 4G and wifi and never got above 110(which is super hot for my phone). Take a look at your idle temp and if you're significantly higher with any screen on duration then you should probably swap it. Remember depending on the grade of solder used in the phone 140 degrees could start loosening internal components. Extended exposure to high temps could also damage your screen, memory card, and/or battery.

    Ya most devices I've used shut off at about 125°f. Most processors Max out at 160°f. Idle temps should be about 75°f. Also lower screen brightness which can raise temps drastically.
