Mine used to get very hot, but Gingerbread has cooled it down a bit.

I've also noticed that Plants vs Zombies eats up so much ram that it makes the phone unusable, you have to kill it after you're done playing.

What I'm trying to get at is, maybe you have an app that's misbehaving?

Yeah I thought about that. I went thru and deleted apps I dont use and also beautiful widgets..so now it runs smoother. I have gingerbread too..its cooled down but its occasional.

I think it is less of a G2X issue and more of a 4G issue. Every 4G device I have touched seems to do the same thing, and get noticeably warm when using 4G.

I had problems with overheating (and often along with it, the screen going to sleep and not waking up unless I pulled the battery), even after the Gingerbread update, but I haven't had this happen since I installed a task manager and set it to auto-kill tasks whenever the screen turns off. It's been over 3 weeks since I started doing this and haven't had to pull the battery yet...previous to this, it would happen at least once a week.

I still have problems with the phone randomly rebooting 1-2 times a week.
