    Will messing around with my Droid, which I love!, I have noticed that the rectangle piece above the batter door gets very warm, and sometimes hot. Is this normal or is something wrong here? I have disabled wifi, bt, gps, the sync feature?, and dimmed the screen to low and nothing seems to fix it. It happens all the time, no matter what I am doing. Thanks!

    Unless it's to hot to hold it's perfectly fine. It's to be expected there cramming so much into a tiny case it's bound to get a little warm. I would only really worry if the actual battery starts to get hot.

    I would only get concerned if the phone starts rebooting on it's own. Then it's a sign of a bad phone, and you should run to the store and replace it with a (hopefully) working droid.

    In talking to the VZW reps, they said that the phone gets a little warm, and that's acutally "normal"...whatever that means. Again, I would only get concerned if the phone starts rebooting or freezing up.

    I have noticed that this phone does get a little warmer than the average smartphone (I've had four over the last 4-5 years), but with all of the silicon goodness under the hood, I guess it's expected.

    That's the CPU getting warm. It's not unusual for it to get warm when running an app that is a little more intensive like games.

    I think it's "normal" for any smart phone getting used to have a warm spot someplace. They need to dump the heat from the chipset someplace.

    Mine gets warm too,but its technically just a tiny computer case with no fans, so its normal, to an extent
