    FedEx finally just made my day and dropped off this absolutely stunning phone. The display truly does have to be seen to be appreciated.

    But has anyone else noticed that the phone gets kind of warm on the back? It's warmer than I remember my 3G getting, that's for sure. I'm not doing anything all that intensive either--all I've done is setup my email accounts, set wallpapers, moved around apps, etc.

    I should not that it is plugged in though. Maybe that's the reason for the warmth, who knows. I'll continue to experiment and see what happens.

    Using electronics while they are plugged in causes excessive heat. It is not good for the battery.

    I actually ran a couple of speed tests over 3g and noticed the bottom corner in the back got REALLY hot.

    Your phone is warm because of the screen. Engadget noted this in their review.

    As soon as I unplugged it in almost instantly went away.

    Phew. It's still just a tinge hot though, but much much better than it was.
