    Anyone notice the phone running hot with long phone calls or long game play? Just noticed this the last couple times using the phone.

    Haven't noticed it when calling, but when tethering, it does get extremely hot, much more so than my Hero did.

    I've played Dungeon Defenders for a solid hr and a half and the phone only gets warm. Nowhere close to 'Hot.'

    So is this an issue I should worry about? Is it a problem with the phone or just something that's "normal" to the phone?

    I've yet to have a phone that doesn't get hot with extended use.

    I'm on the phone now for 36 minutes and the Nexus S doesn't feel any warmer than my old Hero.

    The kickstand on my Evo can get almost to the point of painfully hot to the touch if I just tether non-stop for a few hours. Then the warning light starts flashing (organge in the speaker) and it underclocks everything and shuts off everything until it cools down. That or it locks up and restarts, inertly killing all running things.
