    I was going to start a new thread as I too am oncerned about the heat coming out of this phone. I'm not so sure the battery is where the heat is coming from. I think rather it's the top half of the phone. With the back off, the SIM card holder is probably the hottest. Not quite enough to burn but unpleasant and likely to damage the phone's components over time.

    It's hard to compare temperatures without using thermometers but it's be good to get a fix on whether this is the same for everyone or perhaps a fault.

    the only fix i can think of is the new OS to 2.3.4 which is supposed to fix processor related issues in the dual core phones. but your right the heat does seem like it will damage the components over time :(. the screen getting hot aswell is a worry to me... i think it might start to damage it... not sure.

    I was hoping more owners would let us know how hot their handsets are getting...

    EDIT I installed a battery level app which also shows the temperature (of the battery I assume) and when the phone is in use it's reading around 45c. Is that too warm?

    Mine did. Then I upgraded to KE4. No more heating issues. None. Not even with gaming (the phone gets slightly warm now with gaming but hardly noticeable).

    Interesting. Mine is a SIM free UK model - Baseband version:I9100XXKE4 - Build no: GINGERBREAD.XWKE7

    That's what was on the phone when I got it and Kies tells me that is the lastest firmware.

    Also, this morning, plugged into the charger all night, it feels relatively cool and my BatteryLife app tells me it is at 29c.

    Hi I'm also having this problem. After a bit of surfing this a.m. i made a call and the top of the phone was hot against my ear. My worry is this seems really close to the camera. Wondering if in time it might affect it. All the updates have been installed but no difference.

    No idea what was going on with my phone today.
    It was in my shirt top-pocket as usual, and I was suddenly aware of my nipple getting very hot :rolleyes:.
    Checked the phone and it was really hot - like the kind of heat that playing games on it causes.
    It hadn't received any calls or anything - it was just idle.
    Checked battery usage and there was nothing unusual.
    No tasks running either.

    So no idea what triggered it to suddenly go into over-drive. :thinking:

    Rebooted it and its been fine since.

    I've noticed the top of the back getting slightly warm when charging and using internet radio at the same time, but that is normal I guess. My HTC Hero that I used before got extremely hot when I did the same. So far nothing unusual.

    still no heating issues here mates and one day i played words with friends for a really long time (if you're familiar with this app then you know there's an issue with it very rapidly draining the battery).

    currently running a mix of KE4 firm with KF2 kernel :)
