Ok my desire runs hot

Running on battery it avg 36.4C
On charge avg 40.1C
Just before it restart 47.9C
Battery voltage 3908Mv

The highest I've seen it is 50.1C with 4009mv

It's beginning to make me hate my desire as the battery lasts 3hrs max
Where do I go from here
It sounds like you have a program running out of control.
If you press menu, Settings, About phone, Battery, Battery use
what has been using all the battery power?

I second Ric, the battery can only exceed 40įC if the CPU is running at 100% all the time.  So that's definitely a runaway app.

If the "battery use" percentages don't provide a clear answer, download and install "Watchdog Lite" (free on the Android market).  Open it and during the initial setup you'll get an option to set it to "conservative".  Do that.  
That way Watchdog only monitors which apps are using the CPU and will alert you if something unusual is happening.  Depending on the case, it could take anywhere between a few seconds and 3 hours before you get a warning.

Once Watchdog has identified the culprit, it'll present you with some options.  Kill the app, ignore the problem, etc.  I'd suggest killing it and uninstalling it right away.

Might simply be a bad phone that slipped through undetected, but I understand how people can lose their trust in cases like this.

I hope you can get it traded in.

Yesterday my desire felt uncomfortably hot in my pocket so I pulled it out and it was just rebooting itself and once it restarted it still ran very hot and flattened the battery from 80% in about an hour.

When I say hot I didnít check but I would estimate it to be about 50įC around where the cpu is.

I have reset my desire and fully charged it but with it now charging from the USB on my work pc it is just staying at about 39% so it is using about as much power as its getting from USB.

It normally dose charge from usb although slowly

WIFI is off, GPS is off and I have shut down everything I can but itís still it seems to be using a lot of power. It has been running fine for nine months now, having to charge at least every night but nothing like this and it has been warm before but not so hot you have to pass it back and forth between your hands
 
I have just installed Watchdog Light so hopefully that will highlight a rogue app but I am beginning to think my battery may now be stuffed due to the heat.

just got my Desire back from vodafone, new mainboard, i already tested in sunny Lisbon (27c) working in the sun, for navigation in the car with google maps navigation,  
the old one, in direct sun lite it would not stay on for 5m.
Now it is ok!
and since it is a new mainboard and IMEI, i have a renew 2 YEAR WARRANTY . thx voda... lol

but that's not all, they also changed my screen from a SLCD to a OMOLED Huh
and i don't think that's ok!

when i delivered my desire to vodafone, they lent one other htc desire to me, it also was amoled, but it add much better viewing angle, and less tending to blue.

my new screen was a very poor viewing angle because the colors tend to much to the blue when i tilt the phone, it also is very bright, does not have as much definition as the SLCD, and i think the one voda lent to me ad also better definition,  but at least the black is really black and color very vivid! Smiley

do you think that what i have  seen, 3 different screen's in 1 week, and considering the characteristics of my new screen, are normal for amoled screen? ?

thx in advance (sorry for the inglish)
