    Default Battery Temp

    So lately I have notice the battery temp is between 87f and 102f depending on what I am doing with the Gnex. (yesterday I got a warning battery temp was at 120f)
    I get the temp from the Gsam app.
    is this a normal temp range. I mean the phone when idol for hours, not being charged is at 85 +/- did not think it would run so hot. i have the seidio extended battery and run AKOP rom with included kernel.

    Were you playing a video intense game at the time, or watching a lot of videos? Whenever you do that sort of stuff you are making the processors work hard, which creates heat. Typically, when I am playing a game that taxes my phones energy, I only play for about 20 minutes, then I stop. I don't want the excessive heat to go to the battery.

    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.
