I got the HTC one X last Saturday (07/04/12) I have been messing around and getting used to the phone for a week now as I was an iPhone user. So I have not done much with the phone lately. Today I decided on my lunch break to play the game Where's My Water. After about 20 mins I noticed that the screen was very hot. In fact it was that hot it was uncomfortable to touch (mainly at the top) also the back of the phone (mainly at the top) was hot.

I know some people have mentioned that the handset get warm but mine is getting very hot, is this normal for this phone or would this be classed as a fault?? If this is a fault what should I do, contact HTC or go back to the retailer?

Thanks
I have this problem of overheating too...
which is also playing games mostly
at the top part too...
I knew how hot it was by using this app called batter indicator
it went to 55 degrees Celcius and as mentioned by the previous post it's normal
it always happens though, whenever I play games and have to stop

I'm also wondering whether I should check with my retailer
may I know where you got your phone from?
Sense is quite good in my opinion

HTC Wildfire retired

HTC One X running JB 4.1 SENSE

I noticed mine was getting quite hot today just in stand by mode it shut its self off after a while, think i may have a fault on the handset as when i checked to see how the battery was doing just before it shut down it was on 28%

This happened to me browsing for 20 minutes straight on the 1.28 OTA. The battery monitor was reading 55C. I do not understand the reason for all this heat. I guess I can see gaming getting it that hot, but browsing with no Flash?

Needless to stay I think I'm going to stick with the Galaxy Nexus for a while longer and send back the One X. Too many issues for a $700 phone.

Well after having my new handset for a few days now I can confirm it gets nowhere near as hot as the old one did. However there is a different fault now. The screen seems loose in one corner of the device.

I have been reading reports of screen flexing. When I press (not hard) on the bottom left of the screen you have hear the screen stick back down the pop up again. If you give it a slightly harder press it will stay stuck for a while and then pop back up. There is no visible gap between the screen but there is play in the screen. Not sure if I should take this one back or just leave it as the phone still works.

Mine went for 100% to 70% in 1 hour and i was not running anything on it, it got hot just under the camera, it went up to 45.9c , I checked running processes and facebook was using 10% my highest process, strange how i have never even used it, I killed it and it re-appeared, I decided to re-boot the phone and everything went back to normal.

I have not played a single game on my HOX since i got it, so much for ICS , and android closing down misbehaving software automatically.
