Lightbulb Phone Heating

If you stop and think about it, heating is not unreasonable. The Storm has three transmitters, three receivers, a cpu, video controller, audio amplifier memory , etc. all these things throw off heat. I took a trip on Monday using the phone, bluetooth and gps simultaneously and it got hot. Connecting to the car charger made it hotter. So, heating has a lot to do with the load you are running. Also, have unused software running in background makes the situation worse. 73
