    Hi all,

    Since last 1 week i have been using Legend. The handset is a lovely deivce except the fact that with continuous use or web browsing even for abt 15-20 mins the phone warms up. Sometimes The battery app shows the temp as high as 41 deg C.

    Is anyone facing the same problem?

    Is the home button is also somewhat loose?

    Mine gets warm to the touch when using SatNav, but that's the only time I really notice it, but that's not too surprising really given how hard It's hitting the battery also.

    It's not something I'm concerned with either to be honest as it doesn't cause it to crash, and the metal case is one big heat sink!

    Those sites you are looking at must have a lot of videos on them! ;)

    +1 to the other guys' comments. It's surprisingly hot but as the case is metal, I think it's just that all the heat is conducted onto your hands. If you're feeling pretty concerned, you might consider dropping HTC an email (should be able to find a link somewhere under HTC)

    Also regarding the home button see this previous post - http://androidforums.com/htc-legend/74047-hardware-buttons-especially-power-button.html .

    And what about the so called "invisible/clear shields" ? Are they making it worse ?

    I find internet + charging warms mine up, 'no biggy' as they say.

    Try switching the maps on. You could fry and egg on it. You can almost watch the battery meter go down percentage per second :eek:

    I don't worry about it however, as I am always near a charger if using Apps that suck the battery dry. All in all, a great phone, and the battery I can work around.

    My phone gets super turbo hot when I use navigation. To the point that it shuts down for an hour. I love it!
