    I had that problem until I got a Hyperion extended battery from Amazon. Now it only gets hot while actively charging.

    I have had my Galaxy Nexus for a month roughly and after having a rough first week my phone has been pretty great of late. I am on 4.2.2 and the most important thing is that it does not restart anymore at any point when using dialer doing anything involving answering or making a phone call. Like another posted said I really think the first NExus I had had a faulty radio and it sounded he knew what he was talking about in saying this is what causes the restart problems. This nexus I have has a very fairly recent Radio and this is probably why it has worked so great (The first one I got as documented in another thread had a really old RADIO)

    Did it start on 4.2.2?

    My phone burns when I'm playing Ingress, regardless of battery. Regardless of ROM. I'm sensing hardware stuff issues, or maybe the processor is truly over working itself. I'm afraid I'll hardware damage due to the constant high temps (but I'm L8!)

    If you're thinking Sprint will move you to a better phone, you might as well forget it. The only phone on Sprint right now that actually compares to the G'Nex (in terms of hardware) is the GS3. I'm on my 5th Nexus and the only phones I had the option to switch to....LG Viper, Samsung Victory or HTC Desire.... all of which are terrible phones. I ended up just going back to root, now I'm on CarbonROM which is based off of AOSP 4.2.2 and loving it. I'd suggest you go the same route, perhaps not the ROM I'm on, but definitely go the way of root.

    Sprint won't even offer me the Victory. But they are offering the lg optimus elite (3g only), and the EVO Design 4G (wimax). I'm not happy. If I could, I'd move to a different carrier, but certain situations prevent me from doing that.

    Sounds about right. I'm telling you man, just root and ROM the thing....you'll be much happier, plus you'll never have to wait on an update again.

    Darn. I was hoping Sprint was rolling out 4.2.2 so I could finally accept 4.2.1. I think I will have to. My phone locked up on me for the fourth time and did some weird reboot to safe mode. When I started it again, all my app settings had been cleared and I had to set everything - apps and widgets, up again. This strange behavior didn't start until 4.2.1 arrived OTA for me to install. Whenever it pops up repeatedly and I say install later, that's when the problems happen. When it just pops up once and goes away for hours or days, it's all good.

    I shouldn't have to root my phone to try and solve a problem, especially one that got worse the last time I rooted it. I'm going to press forward with Sprint in hours of a solution, and will keep you all apprised.

    Please elaborate on this if you would. How did it get worse after you rooted?

    For the time I had it rooted, it ran hotter than stock. Too bad I can't remember what ROMs I had, but they ran hotter. Something in my phone is fried, because my WiFi signal is getting worse day by day. I'm sitting 5 ft from my router right now and I barely have 3 bars of WiFi signal.

    That seems like that was a phone issue. I've tried multiple ROMs without having those issues.

    Disregard. You'd think I'd at least be drunk or something the way I keep posting in the wrong place.
