Re: Battery Temp
I posted about this a couple months ago - my phone gets HOT! I am running completely stock - no root, etc.
I downloaded a widget to tell me the temp of my device - and at times, the phone will hit 114 degrees!! Sure, it will get up there when I am playing a game or watching a video, etc.. but there were times where the phone was on standby in my pocket, and I could feel it burning me. As a result of this, of course my battery was getting obliterated. Looking at my battery consumption, nothing really stood out as a culprit.
Someone on my thread suggested that it could be my Exchange Services Email (Outlook). I removed it, and low and behold - it helped tremendously!!
Unfortunately, this is not a viable solution for me, as I use my phone for work as well, and need to get my emails... I have since adjusted the frequency of mail retrievals, and trimmed a few other apps that I found running in the background that I rarely ever used. It still gets hot, but now only at times of lengthy use.
I noticed the same thing on my Note 10.1 tablet - the device was getting very hot, and any apps/ games I would be using at the time would stutter and lag. I removed my Outlook account, and have never had a problem since. I have no idea what it is about Outlook that has been beating up my devices, but I do believe that it was a highly contributing factor.
Now, if you are not running any Exchange Services, then I don't know what to say - but wanted to share my experience with you in the hopes that it may help.
