The phone battery gets heated up a lot. When im playing games, it goes uptill 105....is this normal....also if i play games, the battery drains by 25% in jus 15 mins...are all others also facing the same problem...Please check and let me know...as for checking the battery temp you can use the battery life widget.
105 F is normal,105 C your phone and hand wont survive.Just what kind of game were you playing .Doodle jump and fruit ninja dont drain battery.An hour of fruit ninja and barely 20 percent was emptied.
It does feel a tad hot to handle though.
I dont have wifi,3g,gps, on while playing games.
Plus just to save battery i use custom cpu freq.

2. Battery life: the phone won't even last a day i'm afraid, hence i would like to know how you vary the CPU speed.
1.The sym button is for symbols which aren't already present on the keyboard.,Though it will be nice to see some other symbols which arent already present on the menu.
2.The most effective way of saving battery is to use switch off 3G network and switch off data connection when not in use.

With a 3.2 inch screen and a full slide out QWERTY keyboard, the Galaxy 551 is a nice mid level Android phone f... Read More
