    I left my HTC 10 on a table outside in the sun for about 15 minutes. The metal body was extremely hot when I picked it up and when I turned the screen on, I received a excessive heat warning.

    Anyone else have this issue? I threw my phone in the freezer for 5 minutes and the message was gone (and the metal body was nice and cold).

    I have never left my phone in the sun, but it does become very hot when I am using it on a hot day.

    I have yet to get an excessive heat warning. Working the overnight shift I don't get much chance to sit out in the sun.

    Metal + sun = hot
    Lol
    But yes, it stands to reason. Anything in F. Direct sunlight will get super hot. All in all this thing runs so much cooler than the m9

    Direct sun is very likely to kill your phone.

    it fried my Note 4 in about 15 minutes......
    but, the phone was doing heavy mapping, and the battery was on "Fast Charge" , and I laid it on the dash of the truck while it was raining.... no big deal, right????

    then the clouds went poof! and I forgot about it.... deader than a squashed bug.
