    Please tell this is isolated to just me and it not be a device wide issue. After using my G'nex for a few weeks now, I've noticed that the top part of the phone around the speaker and front camera getting hot to the point of actual discomfort. I was using Mobile data and GPS when it first got that hot and has gotten to that point a couple of more times. It seems I could probably fry a egg on this thing when that happens. Anyway I have to wait till tomorrow to take it to Sprint because of work but was wanting to see if anyone else's is experiencing this problem.

    Yes I noticed this, too. I use my phone alot so I just have to put it down for a few or actually put in front of a fan. My Evo and my Nexus S did the same so I'm used to it. I use the headset to talk on the phone because the top part of the phone does get hot.

    Happens to mine too. Seems to only happen when using 3G and worse when the signal is weak. Happened with my Motorola Photon as well.

    Mine has gotten warm but so far nothing close to my old Epic. I used the GPS quite a bit this last weekend too and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary.

    I would say as another poster said I've probably noticed it be a little warmer when the 3g signal isn't all that great.

    Good to see it's not just the phone (GNEX). I have not had this issue with either my GNEX or my Photon 4G as well.

    Normal and it get up to over 120. Once it hits 120 it will stop charging till it cools down.

    Hmm...I know its normal for these things to get warm while using for an extended period of time, but definitely shouldn't be getting this hot. I'm on my way to a Sprint store now. Will report back what happens.

    How hot is it getting? I bet sprint will exchange it and your replacement will get just as hot. it is the way of the phone.

    Just got it back from the repair center. Turns out it was a bad battery, he said it flat out failed their test. He did mention that it is that or could be one other issue, but he didn't say what. I'll be receiving my new battery in a couple of days. He told me to keep using the phone as normal and we'll go from there.

    You could be having the same battery issue I was. I can already feel this thing warming up with the loaner battery, but no where near as hot. He did say if it didn't turn out to be the battery completely, it is probably a hardware issue in the internals. Gonna run it for a few days and see how it goes. Also, if i do have to end up with a new device its no worries as I'm almost fully converted over to the cloud.

    Why didn't they just swap batteries there. They keep a stock there.

    That I couldn't tell you. Maybe it's protocol. I just hope a new battery fixes the problem...if not, perhaps a new device.

    What carrier are you on and did you have any problem switching to a new device after the return period?

    I have noticed since I got the loner battery I don't think it's getting as hot. Though it does make me wonder sometimes because it'll still pretty hot, hopefully when they get my replacement battery in they can Dee if I have a hardware issue.

    I downloaded that app and it says the same thing about max temp for this device of 131 degrees.
    I heard that it is OK up to 120, but that is just scuttlebutt.
    Mine has never got over like 104-105 degrees.
    Weird.

    I'm actually on my 4th Nexus now, mainly for 2 reasons. The first 3 were getting just as hot if not hotter than my first one. The connectivity just got worse with each one, with the 3rd never even being able to get a GPS lock. I stood outside for 10 minutes and could even get one. All it did was flash the dot inside the GPS icon in the notification bar. Thankfully this hasn't had any major issues so far...GPS locks super fast, it hadn't got to burn your ear off hot, signal has been good (has lost connectivity once). Here's hoping that this will be the one that has no problems, because I really do love this phone. Oh....and I wish Sprint's network was better so my battery didn't drain so fast while on 3G.
