    I have noticed that my phone gets warm whenever I am on a phone call -- this applies whether it up to my ear or using the bluetooth. It is not super hot (maybe 39C) but it does make it a little uncomfortable to hold against my ear, face or just hand.

    Am I the only one? Any idea about the cause?

    ETA it does not get nearly this warm when I am using the data, surfing the web, etc.

    Every smart phone I have owned has gotten warm during long calls. And those phones are an 8330 and a pre, also I remember my A920 and PM8200 getting warm as well.

    No it is not my first smart phone, but I have only had any smart phone for less than a month. My first one was a Samsung Moment which had overheating issues in general so on that one I just assumed it was part of that problem. Thanks for the information. I won't worry about now that I know it is normal. It stays nice and cool otherwise at least, unlike my Moment.

    Every phone I ever owned has become hot, but I "thought" it must be a quirk of my past five phones. When I upgraded to the Evo I was shocked to find out that this phone becomes hot as well! flabbergasted I was…

    Same here - I use it as an excuse to hang up on the caller. "Hey my phone is burning my cheek/ear/hair/hand - have to call you back".

    My old Sanyo Readlink phone got warm, oh yeah the old instinct got warm as well. Make good for a hand warmer during the cold winters.

    This can't be a good thing even though we all know it happens. :)
    My G1 turned into a fiery brick after using it for a few minutes.

    I came from a flip phone. That did not get warm ever. All in all, I will take the trade-off with the warm phone. I guess I will get into texting more often. ;)

    It's a good thing trust me...

    Electrons moving fast around a nucleus creating friction makes electricity, and friction creates heat...

    If they didn't get hot, you wouldnt be doing anything on a phone.
