    It should warm up slightly, especially if you're browsing the web.

    Heck, if you're browsing the web on poor signal, and on heavy websites poorly optimized for IE, your phone should heat up.

    Yes for me it heats up in all conditions you mentioned. Mine still works ok after almost a year of use.

    How long have you had your 820???? Its always been like this for me. If you are new to the phone its a problem/characteristic with this model.

    Mine does too, but I think its normal for every phone. After one year mine is still good even though it gets warm sometimes. Battery wasn't affected as for me. Still works the same as the first time,degrades slightly only

    I've had mine for about a year, and it has always heated up if I overuse it. Usually, when that happens, I turn it off for a few minutes and then turn it back on. That has always helped. Plus, if you keep it one while it is overheating, the battery life tends to go down.

    So I conclude... Unfortunately, all L820 owners are facing this HEATING up problem..
    Thats disappointing...
    I hope MS+NOKIA fix this problem..

    Unfortunately I dont think they can/will.
    I remain hopeful but to honest the phone is a delight to use that I overlook the heating issue.

    I played and finished Halo SA using my L820. It survived my heavy thumb pressure combined with the super heat.
    When it got too hot I usually took it as a good sign to stop playing and go do something productive.

    @sam - thats compromising and overlooking the glitch and living with an err you didnt pay for..
    Also from other forums, i'v concluded not only 820s are heating up but also 920,525 etc.. This is a big issue which needs to be addressed by some firmware update for most of the LUMIAs since WP8 is common to all...
    MS did fix one such issue with some tablet of theirs so one can hope for lumias toooo....

    True its a compromise but I dont think theres much Nokia/MS can do about it. They can try optimize code to use less power from cpu, thats about it.

    The cpu is gonna run hot especially for games and theres nothing MS or Nokia can do about that situation.

    IMO you can't have all this power packed in 10mm with no active/passive cooling and expect it to run cool.

    From what I can gather its the dual core which runs hot. If you want/need cooler phone the quad cores sound like a better bet. I have a year left on contract so I'm stuck, which aint such a bad thing. I waited ages to get my first smartphone and am really happy I chose the L820. The only phones I would consider upgrading if I could would be a 1520 or 1020.

    I've said it before if my 820 had HD res, 3 column tiles and a Pureview camera I wouldnt upgrade for a long time. The year long wait puts me in a good zone (quad cores, HD res bigger screenetc...)

    Who knows maybe 8.1 will have some optimized code.
