Overheating in a Lumia 920: LTE mode runs cooler than 3G/4G!

That's right. I used to keep my Lumia 920 on "3G" to extend battery life, while sacrificing speed, but it appears that all I was doing in the end was the latter.

There are two scenarios when my phone would heat up and it would drive me crazy:

1. Just running the official MS Facebook app (browsing only).
2. Using the official YouTube app and other HD-capable 3rd party YouTube apps.

And then, more recently, my phone was just warming up doing pretty much nothing to the point I was getting disloyal thoughts.

However, short of ideas, I tried to run the phone in LTE mode and see how that affected things.

To my surprise, the phone runs cooler, my battery life has improved significantly (24 hours on a single charge, no problem), and running the two apps above does not overheat the phone, especially Facebook.

Just wanted to share the tip :)

Yea, I've noticed this as well. For some reason 3G makes my phone's battery die faster. It's like our phones feel at home on LTE haha
