Hi,

I just started using my new HTC sensation 4 days ago. I find that after using some graphic intense apps like games or watching movies, the area where battery located become so hot.

The heat becomes noticeable even after using for a good 5 min. Is it normal?

With my friend advise, I turn off 3G, Wifi, and location when I am not using phone. So the phone is not always hot anymore. But still after I start using game like "NinJump" for like 5 mins, the phone become very hot and battery drains like so fast it goes from 95% to less than 60% in a good 5 mins.

Any idea?

Thanks. Smiley

Basically it has been noted in a few places that the Sensation gets warm/hot when in use. however it should not get so hot that the battery goes down that quickly that would suggest that something is actually wrong with it. I would suggest that you maybe look at getting it returned

i think first step would be to address the battery heat issue, then if you get a new phone or they repair it should cure any other problems you are having, if infact it is a problem

Thanks. Anyway, I called HTC customer service and they agree to make 1-to-1 exchange because it is within 14 days. Hope the new phone does not have the problem.

I have had my HTC Sensation for just about 3 days now and I do notice the high heat as well. This was most noticeable using google's navigation. It definitely did not seem normal. I came from a MT3G running Froyo and it can run the same app and gets mildly warm. The Sensation gets really hot. I know that's subjective folks, but I think I'll take it into the T-Mo store anyways.

Other than that this is just an amazing phone! Blazing fast and beautiful display.

If you want to be less subjective press *#*#4636#*#* in the phone panel. Then press battery information and you get battery temperature messured  wink

So now that we know how to measure the batteries temperature, what are we getting. I too have the same issue where, after doing something like playing a game, the bottom portion of the phone gets pretty hot. Not too hot to touch, but hotter than I feel is good for an electronic device. And again, this is actually not the portion of the phone where the battery is, it's the portion where the SD card is.

Anyway, after playing about 15 minutes of Angry Birds, I quickly checked my battery temp and got 41.9 C (107.42 F). After letting it sit for less than 5 minutes, it dropped to 37.3 C (99.14 F).

I would say this actually doesn't sound that bad, accept for the fact that I feel like the bottom portion of the phone is actually hotter than the battery.

Got my HTC Sensation today, put it on charge and about 45 minutes later tried to reload Asphalt 6 and do a bit of surfing.  All of a sudden it became very hot, in fact unbearably hot - to the point where I could smell plastic heated to melting point and then it reset itself.

Once it had rebooted I tried checking my email, the phone began to heat up again, this time I checked the internal temperature and it was pushing 54 degrees Celsius!  Then it reset itself again.

I sent it back to the suppliers for an exchange unit!

Ditto, happened to me this morning, it was ridiculous! I was lucky if I could handle the phone for a few seconds, then it rebooted.
Hopefully it doesn't happen again over the weekend as it's too hectic for me to even consider sending it away to be replaced.

Hi, I had an LG optimus prior to sensation and haven't really noticed one being much hotter than the other,they both seem to get pretty hot when doing certain things. I just try to hold it so it gets as much air as possible
