    Hi, which part of a blackberry passport (OS 10.3.1)phone get most heated when you use it heavily for some while....I see it is always top right area of the phone. Is it normal? Even a simple reboot will make it so clear that you cannot miss that area is specifically heating up during reboot and up to about a minutes it is already rebooted.

    Appreciate your quick answers.

    That's about where mine does too. Most likely where the cpu or gpu is seated on the board.

    Never noticed, gonna try a reboot and see if I can tell. I think I have one of those infrared temp measurement devices. If I notice a change then I will dig out the device so I can get accurate readings from different parts of the device.

    Same place. Generally happens when I'm using apps built for Android or an image heavy application. I tend to stay away from those and use apps built for BlackBerry OS.

    Top right area between bottom of the camera and volume mute button. I found if you have wifi on and leave data on with some heavy streaming it cooks there. One of the builds was particularly bad.
