    I loaded up 4.7 last night and threw on a custom kernal....I just checked my phone temp and it read in the 50's. I can assure you that I do not live inside an igloo or anything. Is this normal for it to be that low? Or is something amiss here? I am normally running a higher speed (1.2) than that, but I have it set to go to 550/400 at 40% battery.

    Wow, that's cold! I am currently sitting at 77F which is the lowest I remember having in recent months.

    Either something is wrong with your kernel/ROM, or the on-die temperature sensor is shot. A passively cooled device (or an air cooled device for that matter) cannot run below ambient temperature. Even powered off, it will be at or slightly above ambient.

    Yeah, it's 69*F in my apartment right now and it's still reading 55.4*F.

    Everything was working fine last night and earlier with that kernel/ROM on it. I wonder if it is the sensor....that would be interesting. I wonder how I would explain how I know that sensor is broke to the verizon warranty people without admitting to rooting.

    Ummm... why the hell would you be worried if it were running LOW!?!? Hell most of us would be giddy if our phones ran that damned cool even at idle.

    I noticed the same low temperatures also. I deleted my SetCPU widget and re-added it. That corrected the falsely low CPU temperatures for me.

    He's worried because there is obviously something wrong. As dave mentioned, if it's passively cooled it can't get that low

    Are both your CPU and battery temps that low? SetCPU > info tab should be near the top.

    What about trying a different kernel for (P3Droid has CPU temps available too)?

    Maybe power off phone, pull batt, then reapply batt.

    I know there are apps on the market that list the output for various sensors, one of which should be battery temperature. Actually spare parts should be able to display the battery temp or Battery Left neither requiring root access. The CPU temperature, you may have a tough time explaining since it requires a custom kernel to display.

    Off topic, but what is your battery widget? I've been looking for something that give me the time remaining. Thanks in advance!

    I think it's just called "Battery Left"

    Right now my CPU temp is around 69* and my battery temp is like 87*

    I just got my phone off the charger, so i will leave it alone for awhile and see if it goes down at all.

    I'll try that if I notice it get that low again.
