Anyone experiencing battery heating issues?

The battery temp stays from 25C to 36C when not in use/constant usage.

however, after prolonged period in lockscreen mode, & i unlocking to use it, it heats up pretty fast, playing games worse; ends up with 42C to 48C, highest being 51C.

is this a common issue? (as some of my friends have this prob too), and it's only the dark blue Note.

any ideas for fix?

Mine gets pretty toasty as well. If I use it while charging it, I've seen it get to 48 degrees.

My Battery died tonight. I woke up after i burned nearly my arm becaus of the hot device. it boots shortly because of demaged battery but i dont know if the Note is ok. display issues. It was on CM 04, on 03 i dont have recogniced any heating problems. If my new battery arrives i must test if it has no damage.

@gilrad: i never use my phone when charging so that i can get a more accurate charge.(just my own thinking) still it can get abit hot(but this is the normal heating)

just referring to light/normal/heavy usage.

@wtwo2: how did your note get hot in the first place o.O?

it was on charging. it boots shortly with battery and charger in but then goes off(usb port). battery doesn't load any more
edit:with charger in wall it boots normally and i can use it but i testet it only shortly, better wait for new battery.
Until now 'no' issues with device.

Yep, same here on my Note, International version from Latin America, GB, rooted.

It gets hot when I do intensive activities such as:
- Watching full featured movie (1+ hour)
- Playing games with tons of action (not simple one like Draw Something)
- Browsing website with heavy content (Flash, ads)

So far, has NOT resulted in too high of temperature such that it burn my hand.

Exclamation Mine is heating like toster
My note is heating up very fast. I found when it is heating so badly

1.When you search for 3g networks or wifi signals or when downloading at high speeds.
2.When you start ur flashlight for 5 or more minutes
3.When you use your GPU at most for example watching HD video and playing high quality games

I saw my battery upto 58 degrees

I saw my battery draining like seconds when i started watching a hd video it goes on decreasing from 78,77,76...............27 in just 20 mins time with 3g activated.

Its odd that people report that the Note gets hot while watching videos. Are these online flash videos or something? I use my Note to watch a lot of HD videos, and it always runs cool. It may be to do with the encoding on the video or the player... I tend to encode to High profile H264 and use mVideoplayer. AFAIK, this allows GPU decoding which runs cooler and draws less power.

Some players use the CPU (the early versions of Mobi player did this I think), which gets hotter faster and drains the battery quicker.

Mine often gets hot only after i've left in lockscreen mode for quite a while -> wake-up -> use apps before it cools down after quite some time, with the app still running
