    Hi I just got my moment on Saturday and I noticed that when I am using it a lot like browsing the web or playing music it's get hot. Is this normal?

    Thanks!

    that is honestly about the only quirk left with my phone I have a qualm about (2 q words FTW).

    My moment gets incredibly hot sometimes and I honestly can't figure out what's causing it. I have to pull the battery as eventually the phone stops working properly. It happens about once or twice a month and I should probably just take it in and have it replaced, but I can't reproduce the problem on demand. Sometimes it's GPS running, or web, or just messing around with an app.

    When I feel mine heating up I hit the ATK icon and it cools right back down. It's heating up when a rogue app is sucking down the battery. ATK will stop it.

    Might be a poorly coded app running in the background. You can try Startup Auditor in the Market to stop apps from automatically running and see if that helps.

    Thanks, but my phone has been hot all day today. I ran ATK and had it in my pocket for about 5 minutes this morning when my leg felt warm and when I talk on it for more than 5 minutes it's uncomfortably warm in my hand.

    I've run ATK among other startup managers. Nothing is ever running away, most times the phone just shows as idle. I notice no apps even running out of the ordinary when it starts heating up. I don't have the all day warmth that the OP had though.

    I get the heat when charging. Sometimes its quite suprising when I grab in off of the charger in the AM after cahrging it over night. I have been debating on getting it replaced, along with a couple of other issues.

    If you see that nothing in the sustem is running then you may want to look into a replacement. Good luck.

    The phone is going to get hot any time you stress the processor and battery. It's completely normal. Good lucky finding any smartphone that doesn't get hot or at least very warm when stressed. However, if it's so hot that it's uncomfortable to hold, then you have a problem and should take it in for repair/replacement or to at least be looked at.
