problem is now with these thinner smaller handsets everyone wants, the heat has no where to go.. so the entire handset becomes a heat-sink.
i would not call a handset that gets hot a "Defect" per se...its the nature of the beast..
great technical posts thus far however i wanted to chime in and give a different perspective amongst all of the techno-babble so as not to scare potential new users or current owners... (and i do love techno-babble)
Yes, I agree with you...sorry for the babble. There is that line... internal antenna's, high discharge batteries, fast charge times, phones that are basically computers.... they all put high demands on a system that we all want and is a technological wonder. And it all works pretty seemlessly, when the system works perfectly. I think if people are aware that there is not likely an issue with their phone as long as the battery isn't over charging, things are good.
But IF there is this issue out there, I wanted it brought to our attention so we can get it addressed and fixed. These are great phones, HTC and Sprint worked hard on them and we waited patiently for them... we all want them to be the best they can be. It's a result of these forums we have the wonderful products we do, and why companies invest to much time and research into exploring them. A happy customer makes a happy company which makes a great product... the circle of gadget life.
