It must be because you are using apps or games that like high frequencies

Either undervolt or spend less time using your phone

What to you mean heat up? the temperature of the battery or you have a thermometer on the phone? and do not take the temperature while the phone is charging. it supposed to go up!!!

mine battery temp is about 25 degrees with a max of 30-32. ambient room temp is around 20 degrees and the phone is not in direct sunlight. note that my cpu is undervolted (150mv down) and underclocked (at 1350mhz) but playing games the temp doesn't go more than 32.

in some forums i have read that it is normal the back of the phone to heat up because it is plastic and plastic does not spread heat like aluminum.

hope i shed some light...

ps. the degrees are in celcius

with brightness set to 100% i hit 49 degrees afte 5 mins gaming with wifi and 3g enabled. that is normal (i think) if you consider that the thermal throttling kicks in at 70 degrees (checked it in franco kernel updater)

edit: before the brightness was set to auto so i think it was about 15-20%

It's normal to get around 50 degrees on 3G or more during gaming.
