    Mine gets up around 110 when turbo charging. I think that's normal.
    For the first 7 days I had it, it got up to 107 doing Web browsing and taking pictures. Day 8, that almost completely stopped. It's only gotten up to 100 twice in the last 4 days. Didn't even get hot when I recorded video the other night.
    I've read that other people have had the same experience with it settling down after a week. Hope this helps.

    How hot would it need to get for the system to trigger errors or even shutdown?

    Mine has been feeling warm so I downloaded GSam today to see. Got to 108 today just browsing the web. Not on charger. Normal?
    Don't think so. I had pretty much the same issue, even after three weeks, and returned it. Seems like there are some bad units out there. May try it out again in a month or two, hoping they fixed this issue.

    Just got off a chat with Motorola. The rep said the highest temperature the phone should be is 104 Fahrenheit or 40 Celsius. Mine was at 108 yesterday. I've only had the phone a week so I'm going to monitor it a few more weeks and see if the temps level off. If not then it's going back.

    I highly suspect that that temperature is not what the upper limit is actually. If 104 was designed to be the upper limit, the phone would be shutting down.

    Yep. The rep seems technically ignorant to modern devices. All newer devices can get up to 110 degrees or even higher with higher res 3D gaming as example. Especially if using a case. The Pure got 120 degrees with 1440p VR, but was in the Freefly VR headset that is an enclosed design (back has no air space).

    I wonder though if the MXPE has a shutdown warning, since have yet to see anybody report it, but concur the device can get real toasty under certain conditions. The Note 4 comes up with a warning as example. Usually when using VR content with (Gear VR in this case).

    When a small device like a phone's GPU has to push true 1440p (VR content always pushes the native resolution of device) there is nowhere for the heat to go besides the frame. If the apps you use do not push 1440p, there should be no potential heat issues. By "push" I mean the GPU is calculating math to the 1440p. Video media is not an issue, unless of course watching with a VR app on a headset.

    The issues noted in this thread though are no different than the G4. Same chipset. The 810 actually gets hotter. Yikes.

    Yup. A phone will start to aggressively throttle and then outright shutdown long before it's hits its thermal threshold. You'll also get a bucket load of warning messages before it does so.

    Found this info on the Motorola website:

    "Some facts on battery temperature

    * Devices need their space; There are no on-board fans, cooling relies solely on the device being able to dissipate heat through the air. To help cooling, ensure the device is not in a pocket, purse, carrying case, or direct sunlight.

    * Normal temperature is (97f) ~36c

    * A user will begin to sense a “warm” device at 106f (~41c) and it will seem hot at 109f (~43c)

    * Cool Down Mode kicks in at 152f (67c)

    * Batteries with temps => 113f to 140f (45c to 60c) will not charge to 100% capacity

    * Battery temps >140f (60c)will not charge at all."

    Mine got to 112f when charging this morning. I guess that's normal but it was very warm!

    The thing is, you will hear from EVERY phone company people that have heat issues and some who don't at all... let's just admit it, there are too many defects out there, or they just don't know how to make phones...

    That is not normal. The warmest I've gotten was 115. And I haven't reached that in weeks

    Not normal at all for the MXPE. Return it if persists.

    As well as actual app usage, charging, display brightness, case on device, perception, material design (some hide the heat), signal and ambient temperature.

    Mine was overheating, reaching 110° just using chrome (even after a week). Tried clearing cache in recovery and so far so good. Now the phone barely heats up unless playing a game. Worth a shot!

    For whatever reason, Chrome and the Firefox beta both run real warm. I mainly use Dolphin or Xscope .

    In the few days I've had mine, it runs slightly warm to the touch under strong use. Not quite truly heavy use. Certainly cooler so far than my Samsung phones have run. The 808 behaves better than the 810 that often throttles down to worse performance than 808. Moto made the right choice in the current market by going with the 808.

    Hottest I've been so far was 112F, and that was playing Ingress, with a case on the phone, while charging, in direct sunlight, on an 75 degree day. That's hot, but not hot enough for me to be concerned about, especially given the circumstances.

    I received my Moto X Style 64 GB in mid Sep. The CPU temperature rose to 42° C during some file copy and move operation.
    Later when I played games shadow fight 2 and Dead Trigger, phone CPU temperature reached 44° C - 111° F.
    I contacted Motorola customer care to inquire if this is a known issue. They said, I was one of the first user to report this problem and offered to replace the device. I returned the old one and received a replacement device on Friday last week. I was hoping to have a solution to the heating issue with the new device.
    I tried to play the graphics heavy game Modern Combat 5 for 15 minutes and the CPU temperature again reached 44° C - 111° F and the phone feels really hot in hands.
    I am measuring CPU temperature with Cooler Master App.
    Normal CPU temperature varies between 27° C- 35° C.
    I am not sure how much CPU temperature is normal for a phone. Reading the posts here, I feel this is a general issue with the phone. I am really unsure to keep the phone (as I love the phone in general without the overheating issue) or return it and try S6 instead.
    I have a 64 GB version with wallnut finish. Is the overheating problem specific to Moto X Style / Pure with these specs or it is a general issue ?
    I will then return this one as well and try a 32 GB version with leather / silicon back.

    Thanks a lot !!

    For games such as that, especially Dead Trigger, 111 F would not be all that abnormal. Gaming sessions will heat up the phone fast.This years Snapdragon processors run warm so the Moto X may run a tad warmer then last years phones but the phone itself is not overheating as the phone will tell you it's overheating and it starts shutting things down; the game you're playing would likely be the first thing it would kill. If it gets so hot that the components of the phone are in danger of physical damage the phone will just shut itself down. In addition the 6.0 update is likely only a few weeks away at this point and they man tweak thermal management in it.
