    I've been experiencing the same problem. For me, it's the upper-half of the phone that can get extremely hot. Almost too hot to touch.

    I think I might have to exchange this phone.

    How does your camera activate in your pocket?, the only way the button works is with a long press when the phone is unlocked I think

    the heat is from the processor, my evo would heat up too, its just the processor in these phones are getting more and more powerful every month and they are keeping same to smaller depth, passive cooling can only do so much...becareful thou because the heat can reduce battery preformance

    Overheating is an issue Sprint is aware of. My first E3 overheated and died. No problems so far with my second one.

    I think 33-35 is normal. I've seen it in the high 40s when playing games. When used hard it does get warm.

    same thing happened to me too, felt the phone getting really hot in my front pocket, took it out to find the camera open. dunno know why that would happen when the proximity sensor should leave the screen off. i've also noticed the phone getting warm at random times when all I was doing was using the internet w/4G, over 100 F.
