Default 141.6F - "A New Record!" | What's the hottest battery temp you've seen?

So this week I've discovered a hidden feature on my Rezound: it doubles as a portable pocket burner. Not sure if that is too be expected (having read through the other battery threads, it seems that 120F is typical eye-bulge territory), but if it happens again i'll probably start the replacement phone process.

This happened off charger, just playing a high quality graphics game for 20 minutes.

Just seems a bit high to me, but any further insight is welcome. (as a comparison i've read on the Galaxy Nexus forums that a few folks are getting ancy at around the 120F mark as well).

Maybe the Rezound is just has a poor design in reference to heat dissipation? Maybe I have a defect? I can live with it, so long as I know its not that big of a deal. I'd like to avoid waking up next to a phone shaped melt hole on my night stand.

Did you try frying any bacon or eggs on the screen?

Phone would triple as a portable skillet! Lol

No, but I did attempt to brand a cow.

Didn't go well.

That's 60 c. That is way to hot for a phone. Hottest I have seen on my phone is 54c 129f

I haven't checked the hottest, but when I got up this morning it showed 38F and the screen kept fogging up.

I've never had a phone go past about 40C. I haven't really pushed the rezound that hard yet, so I will try that later today.
