    Just wanted to ask fellow community members if it is normal for the droid to heat up while web surfing/using programs etc. For example. I was using the new DIGG app and it seemed to heat up considerably during that time. Thanks in advance.

    The area right next to the camera lens tends to get a bit warm, yes.

    Thanks, I figured as much. Still, I am still fairly new to this phone and I wanted to make sure by asking other owners.

    Yep, Mine gets warm too. I use Temp Monitor (free version) to keep an eye on things though...

    Mine didn't used to, but today it was. I had recently installed helix launcher, and also read reports of it causing some heat issues. I uninstalled it, and since doing so my phone isn't getting as hot.

    I'm curious if you're running helix as well.

    No Helix running for me snapcase. I really noticed the heat when earlier downloaded and started using the new DIGG app that recently became available. App was running kind of slow so not sure if that had anything to do with it.
