    I'm curious to know how the phone handles the working processors- has your phone warmed up when i. in use OR ii. while charging?

    Mine isn't getting warm.

    Buy a good case and the problem will be solved. If the phone downs overheat it will be covered.

    Mine was a bit warm when charging but not in an ohmygawdimgonnaburnmyhand kinda way. My Captivate got much warmer than this has so far.

    Put how warm/hot your phone gets when being used or charging. I know that phones usually get warm when charging, especially around the battery area. My Nexus would be from 35-40 degrees when it was charging. When it's being used for more than half an hour it was around 25-30 degree (from memory). This was what I grudge from other members here with other Android devices.

    You need to return that thing to the store and exchange for another one. I know some of the early craptivates had issues with screen, battery, shutting off, and heat.

    Many apps on the market offer this as an option, I use system panel lite, it's free.

    My IPhone and my Atrix will get hot if I am streaming audio while charging. My IPhone has lasted 2 years so far and no problems.

    Found this, it's for the Droid X, but Moto talked about its phone line in general too:
