    Default Maxx on fire

    What makes the Maxx run hot. About once a day my maxx gets really hot to the touch on the front glass. I can shut down for about 5 minutes and we are back in business. Really don't want to keep doing that.

    Any Android can get a little hot... mainly from an APP that will run and use a lot of processor time. The only time mine has ever gotten hot is by using Google Maps for an couple hours to find a location. Check out the apps you have on your device.

    Again, I said "Processor"... the processor is behind the screen and that is what usually gets hot... and that is usually because an app is hitting it hard... but since I don't know what apps you have and how often they sync or are set to work... at least that is what I'm thinking with the limited information I've read.

    I've never had it that hot. You can check your battery stats when it gets like that to see if you can identify an app or program that has been running a lot during that time period.

    Settings ---> Battery Information ---> Battery Use

    Then see what's in there and if it should be running. That's what I can think of off the top of my head.

    If I helped you or you like what I said, hit "Thanks" or "Like".

    Screen on has nothing to do with it. It's the CPU behind the screen that generates the most heat. With a phone this thin expect to feel the heat with heavy usage.

    That's pretty weird, my phone gets hot when I'm using it but the screen never gets really hot for me.

    My phone gets hot when I play video games, use navigation or watch videos but besides that the phone doesn't get hot.

    I think screen on DOES have something to do with it, because mine gets hot when I have the display on for an extended period of time and all i'm doing is reading through Twitter feeds. There's no way Twitter runs the processor so high as to generate lots of heat. And there's very few things running in the background.

    As soon as I darken the screen, I can feel it slowly cool off.
