Default Phone gets hot

Two month old Samsung 870
After about 20 minutes on a conversation the phone gets very warm - hot.
Not enough to cause physical harm, but enough to make one not want the
phone to touch my face.
Is this normal??

Lou

It's normal for cell phone batteries to heat up as the phone is being used,
but I couldn't say if what you're experiencing is normal or excessive.
Perhaps other Samsung 870 users can comment?

Every single phone I have had got warm after being used for a long time.
Internet, games, ect. So I would say it is normal. I am now on Cingular (
Ported from VZW)( Cingular has better coverage where I live. Northern
Kentucky, VZW dose not work where I live) and I have the Cingular 3125 smart
phone and it get real warm after making calls and using the internet and
other apps on it.

It suggests that you won't go very long between battery charges. The energy
that heats up the phone has to come from somewhere, and that figures to be
mostly the battery.

Unless you're picking up strong radiation from a nearby source. You're not
using the phone in front of a leaky microwave oven, are you?
