I wanted to check what temperature other peoples phones are reaching. Mine reached 44.4 while charging. This seemed quite hot. Is this normal? Unplugged and in use it is usually from 38 to 40. Is this normal? What are other people getting?

Sounds quite cool for a fanless/heatsinkless dual core, which is held in your warm hands.

What app are you using to measure?

Im just using the htc battery widget. Just worried I might be doing some damage because it feels hotter than other HTC phones i have had (incredible s and desire).

Personally my phone doesnt go above 34 when charging - but i always charge via usb on pc (so i can leave it on overnight and it doesnt charge up too quickly)
iv had it go around 42 while gaming for a while on it, but its not to bad.

Just to add , if your worried about it.
HTC has a built in failsafe which will restart if it getting too hot, to stop
any damage, so dont worry about it.
SG2 apprently also suffers from a similar issue.

Battery Widget? On the T-Mobile (USA) phone, I don't see any place that shows internal or battery temperature. Nor can I find a battery "widget". We have a battery info screen that is under "About Device", but it doesn't show temps.

Am I missing something?

He might mean the battery icon in the notification bar. I don't know though
