The Li-Ion battery's temperature upper limits are
for discharging up to +60C (+140F)
for charging up to +45C (+113F).
The processors operating temperature upper limit is a lot of higher than the battery's.
You'd use Battery Monitor Widget for monitoring the battery's temperature, even at a graph by time.
Harry, the battery is the most sensitive component? Wouldn't you think it'd be the cpu?
Also, just for info sake, the part of the phone that gets hot is right around the camera. It starts there until the whole upper half of the device, including screen, is burning up.
If it were the battery, wouldn't i expect the heat to be lower?
