    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 :)

    It sounds very strange, but it's nice if it works

    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
