    With summer almost apon us, I was thinking we could start to hear stories about people frying their phones. I know my Milestone gets a fairly warm using GPS in the car dock, ill have to keep an eye on the temps.

    Are there any temperature sensors in the processor/phone? I haven't heard of any.

    I know the setCPU widget shows internal temps, so yeah I'd say there were internal sensors.

    Yeah, at least for the CPU, I left my phone in my buddies glovebox which turns out is where the heater blows, and when I turned it on, it said it was to hot to power on

    all electronics need to be kept at a good temperature. whether it has internal temperature gauges or not, just use some common sense. Say, for instance, not putting a $500 smartphone in a glove box in the summer.

    Or in the glove box on a cold/cool day either it seems. haha

    At least the phone does a check before turning on, I would like assume that it will turn off when it gets to hot as well. Anyone know?

    @mrmojoz Hmm well I'm not rooted, but if I was... I would be using setCPU. Is there any good free apps that will show temps?
