I've been using the Pre 2 since Jan 2011. I noticed the device can sometimes get really hot.
Thanks to the Advanced Systems Menus patch, I get to check the temperature from time to time.
During idle, the temperature range from 27-33 degrees Celsius.
On normal use (RSS, music, light browsing), it can range between 35 to 38 deg.
But at full load (videos, full 3G browsing, extended calls), it can go up to 41 degrees. Once, i also had freetether wifi switched on with my wife using her iPod Touch to browse, while i do the same on the Pre, it actually went up to 44 degrees! That's seriously hot and i immediately stopped with fear that the plastic parts might melt, or worse, the battery explodes.
I'm wondering if anyone else are experiencing this big temperature fluctuations as well? I'm in the tropics btw.
