My Pre Plus & Pre 2 often got pretty warm while on my Touchstones (I have five of them: bedside, desk, living room, car, and work), but my new Pre 3 (VZW) seems to get burning hot.
I think I remember my older phones sitting somewhere around 45 C, but my Pre 3 usually hits 50 C easily, often hitting 52-55 and I'm really scared I'm gonna fry this thing (hit 60 at work a week ago which caused it to shut itself down!).
Even as I charge it now via USB, I'm at 49 C. I'm running Uberkernel, but only at stock 1.4 GHz. The only thing I can really think of is that I live in Tucson, AZ which gets pretty hot (already hit 100 F recently, though its been about 90 F lately). Yet my workplace is very well air-conditioned and that's where I had the worse problem.
I often turn off the data connection (and sometimes underclock it) so it has at least that much less to process and I usually turn the screen off too (so I don't even get to enjoy Exhibition). So...what should I do? Anyone else have the same problem and maybe have a solution? I'm all ears... Thanks. =)
