cellphone gets warm in use


Oct 21, 2003, 12:43 PM
A few weeks ago, we purchased two Sanyo cellphones (4900 & 8100) and have noticed that during use, especially longer periods of use (20+ min. calls) they get "warm." The warmth is located mostly in the battery but is also noticeable in the screen area. Our previous cellphones (Nokia)didn't do this but they used a different type of battery ... is there anything wrong with our phones or is this "natural" with the newer LiIon type batteries?

Cell phone getting warm after long period of use is a pretty typical thing. pretty soon I think these phones will have so much processing power, they will need a cooling fan just like a PC Very Happy

Is that why battery life is so much shorter when using vision, as opposed to battery life with just talk time use?
