    I have been using the classic since couple of weeks and I want to share my feeling that I find classic to be more cooler and doesn't get hot or warmed up irrespective of the signal variations or load to CPU when multi tasking.

    Maybe the form factor is key in keeping the ventilation good and thus keeping the handset cooler.

    Share your views pls!!

    I really hope this is true but haven't had a chance to buy one yet myself. I have had a problem with hot phones before.

    Mine stays cool in hand too. Didn't have the warming problem with my Z10 or my Q10 either. Stays charged overnite in bedside mode and that stays cool too. It will be warm if charged without being bedside mode. But I am using the PlayBook charger and it doesn't take long to charge at all.

    Side not: this is a COOL phone. Love it!

    Yeah my new Classic feels much cooler compared to my old Q10. I have been using Battery Guru to keep track of my battery status as well as temperature and it always shows a range of 28-37 degrees Celsius which is very good imo.

    Feel very happy with my Classic, especially its keyboard !

    Cooler operation leads to longer life of circuits and less stress on the board. I think that's one advantage.

    Exactly why I wouldn't use a Playbook charger to charge my phone faster. If anything you want to charge slowwwwwer to lower heat during the charge. As they have proven, speed of the charge, draining too much and charging the last 5% does the most damage. Also, if you do CPU intensive tasks (games, etc.) this also shortens life expectancy. Avoid heat at all cost if you are the type to keep your phone to the maximum extent.

    There are certain games that when played can drive up the temperature but in 90% of the cases it stays really cool.

    I've been on the phone for long periods of time (and with my Z10 that made it very hard to hold) answering emails and even flipping through Twitter and there isn't a change at all in the temperature.

    Definitely this is an advantage that we classic owners can feel happy about!! Even I played many games and I'm hooked to phone like crazy all the time on social networking, still the phone never fluctuate with regard to temperature swings and that too irrespective of the signal in the area.

    I'm very happy about this as it gives me a good feel to hold the phone.
