My HOX overheats whenever I use it and it's plugged in. I get the flashing green and red light, this mainly happens when i'm in the car with navigation and music playing. Othertimes when using the phone for general use while on charge. Phone gets hot really quickly.
Have sorted it when in the car by making a mount to fit in front of the air vents and has air conditioning keeping it cool. Less than ideal but for now its ok.
Anyone else having same problem? Is my phone worse than others?
what should I do?
I understand why it happens, but surely it prooves that it's a crap design!
Is there something I can do so this doesn't happen? I know about reducing screen brightness, but still doesn't help much.
this used to happen to me all the time when i would use my HOX in the car to navigate or play music (while charging)...do you have a case on your phone? I found that a case aggravated the issue. Also make sure you're all the way up to date; my phone has been running marginally cooler since the latest update (android 4.0.4 and sense 4.0 update for AT&T)

No I don't have a case, I thought that would agrevate the issue as well. Haven't had the update yet as I'm on Orange branded. wish I rooted weeks ago! oh well, hopefully soon and hope that makes a difference, as you say it's only marginally better.
I know the one in the car is 500mA at the mo, thought that would be less likely to make the battery overheat as it is doing less work than the 1A, but still overheats when I use the phone and it is plugged in to the mains charger as well in the house.

There's probably not enough charge going to the phone with that charger if you're using GPS and listening to music. Does it charge or does the battery level remain constant or drop? If either of the latter, that is really bad for the battery.
Try with a 1mA charger, see if that makes a difference.
What temperature app would you recommend? And does it really work?
I just use the battery temperature measuring part of the battery app: (google play) but this only measures the battery temperature. I am also interested in an app to measure all of the temperature sensors in the phone
