    So I know I'm not the only one with occasional heating of their Z10 with usage. Especially when a new os is settling in. Wouldn't this be detrimental to the hardware and will it shorten the life of the phone? Any thoughts on this? Thanks!

    They are meant to hold up to the heat but its best to keep it as cool as possible

    Once the phone is indexed it should return to normal operating temperature. If it's still overheating after the settling-in period, then a security wipe is in order.

    I have experienced heating when phone is trying to catch on signal or while browsing dynamic Web pages or while filming video or when it tries to save files over wifi. All OSes 10.0 to 10.2. 10.0 was worst from heating perspective at least.

    At what point should I worry for damaging the hardware? I've read that phones in general can get up to 60C before getting damage but cammera lenses may get damage when reaching 45C, mine has gone up to 39C (Z10 STL100-1) gaming. Does anyone knows at what point should we worry for the integrity of the hardware?

    The hottest I've ever seen my phone get to is 46C. I decided to power it off with the power button, remove the battery and wait a bit. Evidently setting up 8 apps at the same time right after an OS install isn't exactly a low-temperature process.
