    Was just wondering if its normal for a phone to warm up during a phone call, during a call today that was 6 minutes roughly 7 minutes I noticed my phone was warmer, roughly 90 degrees according to thermometer. Also warms up using safari and facebook to about that same temp after 10 minutes of use. Happens on my X and my 7.

    Different Carriers, Different Carriers. Is this hand heat? or what? Not using a case.

    Trying to figure out if normal?

    I’ve experienced the same for years but have never had any actual issues arise from it

    All of the apps and use cases you mentioned might get up the phone because of constant use of wireless signals and other services running in the background. The Facebook app is well known for being a resource hog.

    I tried the same on my wifes iphone 8 and my 7 and X get warmer then her 8 is that just because of the size? I mean its barely a degree warmer. And you are sure its all normal.

    There’s always some difference in battery, they can’t be made like to like. That’s just how the battery technology is. Given it’s just a degree, I won’t worry too much.

    Plus, all iPhones come with surge protection chip. Your phone can never get dangerously hot. It will shut itself down if the temperature was getting too high.

    You can probably feel the heat more without a case too. I rarely feel heat because I have a case but I used it without a case a bit and noticed the heat more.
