    After a week of travel with my Droid 3, there's only one issue that I'm concerned about: how warm the bottom half of this thing gets when the processor is getting a bit of a work-out.

    When playing any sort of game (ranging from the included Nova to Plants vs. Zombies to Archipelago), the bottom half (side with the mic, SIM card, SD card slot) gets uncomfortably warm. I've never had it restart due to heat, and the rest of the phone stays cool, but I don't want to hold that end of the phone due to heat.

    A few of you want to do me a favor and fire up a game for 10-15 minutes and tell me how warm your phone gets? I'll be taking it back for a swap out if this doesn't seem like a universal issue.

    They all get warm with gaming because the screen is constantly on and the processor is as well. I've played Angry Birds for like an hour straight and my phone hit 122 degrees.

    This thread has been Thunder struck!!

    It get's pretty warm. Much warmer than my OG Droid did when playing games.
