    Sounds normal. The phone will heat up after prolonged use, especially near the top where all the goodies are. It should be warm though, not too hot to touch.

    My phone used to heat up a lot. I would monitor it by using the active applications widget and found that the dolphin HD browser was using a ton of the CPU. I tried Dolphin mini and had the same problem. I uninstalled both and went back to the stock browser and it's gotten a ton better. The only times my phone get up to 108 degrees now is playing certain games like crazy snowboard, where's my water and Jelly Defense to a lesser extent.

    mine was running real hot a for a while. I traced it down, to my surprise, it was the facebook widget. Closed it, and phone cooled, and battery life jumped up.

    Also, as your forum image indicates, you could always try peeing on it to cool it down.

    Okay, no, don't do that. If you have an iPhone lying around though ...

    Open up the task manager and if any of the CPU processes are yellow or red, that's probably what's causing it.

    Sometimes if i play games while on the charger my phone will get very hot. I will even get glitches in graphics when the phone is hot. Usually a reboot will fix that.

    I also found that leaving a weather radar program open in the background displaying multiple radar frames would heat it up pretty good. I make sure I close them down after using (apps like Rainy Days, Raindar, etc.)

    I think I've actually posted about this in the past. My Epic 4G Touch also gets ridiculously hot at times. Usually it's just when I play games (like Eternity Warrior) for an extended period of time. It's gotten so hot at times that not only is it almost unbearable to touch, but it has actually shutoff and when I tried to turn it back on it would have a little heat warning indicator (or at least I believe that's what it is) and would not start until it cooled off. I love my phone, but this is one of the few things that really needs to be looked into.
