Default what is your battery temperature (running hot)?

Someone mentioned this is another post. I noticed my phone was pretty hot last night, although I didn't think to check the temp. Right now my temp is at 94F...I just checked my wife's evo lte and it was at 77F

Isn't this a bit hot? Post your battery temp

94 degF isn't reall hot - I've held phones while watching TV, doing nothing, and have watched them go up to 98 degF - body temperature.

Temperature sensor is for the battery though. On the LTEvo, battery is at bottom behind the aluminum, processors are up top.

Here, the phone is sandwiched - from front to back - glass, battery, boards with chips, aluminum case.

It may feel warmer than the temperature reading due to the heat going to the aluminum case rather than more into the battery.

Note that you can have the LTEvo report low while the processor location is at a higher temperature.

Mine had read 116 at one time... But I had it in the windshield, using GPS, with screen on AND charging... BTW, while using GPS, my 3VO would go down in less than 2 hours. My one lasted almost 3 hours before I turned GPS off and started charging! :-)

Higher than that. I've exceeded 120 a number of times in the past. You'll trash battery life doing that though.

Feel the Heat: Running hot? - Android Forums

If it's not that, you may have a problem phone.

(link above quotes my post from this forum on race conditions)

If it's nothing mentioned, press and hold power for 10 seconds to restart - that will clear any stuck silicon.

Hottest I have seen it is the low 100s (F)
It will get warm when charging for the first hour when the battery is low. ( < 30%)
Once the charge gets up over 60% it starts to cool off.
Other than that I haven't seen any high temps on mine.

LoL my old phone the evo shift would get pretty dang hot by itself just sitting in my pocket so much that'd I'd turn it off to cool it off. So far my One hasn't gotten so hot that I've been concerned, we'll see how it goes at the beach next week

Today my HTC ONE was running cool all day long. Maybe because it was new or maybe it was during the first charge that this happened.

Default Overheating (will not charge)

Well, after having my HTC one on and charging (no case) and in an air conditioned car with the GPS on I found my battery losing power with the tell-tale red blinking light of charging death....

I had this problem with the Evo 3D, then I had the Evo LTE and did not have any problems, and now here I am again. Anyone else having this issue?

Don't think a lipo battery at 120 will hurt it. I saw a study somewhere that showed its best dischage rate was around 130f. I think when you get up to 140, that would be cause for worry.

Just a guess here,but,this phone has been reported by many here,& elsewhere,to be slow to take a full charge in a static/@ home charging environment,especially w/the last 30% or so.

If you're driving/using GPS all day long,I'm guessing you're fighting a losing battle,especially if you're in a weak signal area during these times of discharge.

Only things I can recommend are the following:

1) Call SPRINT & check to see if any network maintenance is underway in your area.

2) Ensure that you're using a 1A charger,which matches up w/what the phone will accept.

3) Contact HTC's Customer Care Dept.,they've been nothing but excellent w/me in an unrelated issue,assisting & documenting troubleshooting my issue.
Been dealing w/the same agent each time,which should lead to a quicker resolution vs. other manufacturers.

Please keep us posted on your outcome.

I'm sorry but I do not place my phone in the windshield to bake in the hot sun. It's a computer and you should find a way to mount it in a lower area of your vehicle where there is constant shade while driving. It will not make a difference concerning the GPS in the phone. Also, don't leave the screen on while using the phone as a navigation tool along long stretches of highway. You can turn the screen off and have the navigation system just speak to you. And unplug it from the chargerr while doing so my friend.

160 is the tipping point with Lipolys, you are correct though, they are more efficient when run hotter. I suspect the phone would shut down before anything got too hot to cause damage, because that damage could be deadly, and lead to expensive litigation for HTC. Lipolys are not a battery to mess around with as I alluded to earlier in this thread, and as such I highly doubt HTC (or any other manufacturer for that matter) would have used it without extensive failsafes being used as well.

Default getting warm when using GPS

using the sat nav, my phone was very warm and the battery monitor said it was at 50 degrees celcius! I noticed when using my HTC car charger the light would be on but the charging light on the phone was off, every now and again the charge would stop. Is this some sort of safety protection built into the phone to prevent it overheating, and how come the phone is getting so hot? My Desire HD never had this issue and I used it a lot for the sat nav.

the one is built differently than the old desire. metal will "give off" more heat. this is to be expected when using gps because the data connection is constant.

its normal and if its in a hot environment, it can shut off charging to protect the battery cells. again normal.

When using the built in version of navigation you should always do the following:
1. Don't put phone in the window to receive satellites. On a hot day or with the sun beaming into your car this will cause the phone to get too hot. Having the phone sit in a shaded area of the car like on the seat or in a cup holder is better. Or lower where you have your cell phone mount. This will not make a difference in the number of satellites you receive.

2. If you leave the phone on the charger while using navigation you can turn the screen OFF. The nav system will still talk to you and tell you where to turn. This will keep the phone cooler while charging. Once fully charged, unplug from the phone. If you don't do this your phone will get hot. And to imagine some folks are doing this with the phone sitting in direct sunlight. Not a brilliant idea at all.

In addition, if you are on a longer drive, if you are using a case, remove it so the phone can breathe.

Hello alkalidodo. I'm seeing in various reviews of the HTC One that there is a heating issue being mentioned.. often under load from media or calls, or 3G as you say.

No remedy that covers all those circumstances has been brought out, and even more challenging is the fact that not all users of this great device are seeing that issue.

We've seen this in other devices, as well, with a "known bug" not being experienced by all users of that device. So... if it were my device, I'd take it to the point of purchase and kindly but firmly request an exchange for a new device.

You can first troubleshoot a bit. Is the heat occurring in all 3G areas, or just a few or only one location? It could be that the polling circuit in your One is not detecting a good strong signal and is constantly busy trying to keep a connection. If so, that's not a true defect (although "extremely hot" does sound like a defect), just a defect in the coverage in your area.

have anyone noticed that the front of the phone also gets warm?

Well I am charging and watching videos...it's around 43 degree celcius....it's quite warm. Should I get rid of the double dip flip cover? Is this even normal?


edit:

wireless and battery charging really makes it hot. any views?

Exclamation Battery temperature

These days are pretty warm in my country (around 85F). While outside in the sun my phone got hot too. The maximum temperature was for a brief time 116F.
