hi i have joined this forum today. this yr jan. i hav pur Galaxy S2. last month i had the same problem of phone running v.v. hot. i had removed battery and after som time the phone was lik nothing happened. my phone was so hot that i thought the battery is going to burst. i had given for service and they told som application would be running at backdrop. i hav not started using any application other than tomcat. i hav not even started browsing/watching videos.... I am just using it as a ordinary phone attending 5-6 calls and sending some 10 sms. two days back my mobile was charged fully and removed immediately after hearing the beep sound of battery full. that whole day it was working fine. next day morning my phone was dead and i tried even charging battery n nothing cud be done. again i hav given for service n now they are telling the charging area in the set is not working and has to be blown!!! i dont know what it is. my doubt is when the battery got charged the previous day how the charger connectivity went wrong. please clarify what mistakes i hav done or doing. thank you. anoos
What was the temperature? Anything over 120°F is bad.
I've had this also in the last few days. I have a Galaxy S2 (unbranded UK) which I upgraded to ICS in the last month. The phone is about 6 months in my ownership. At times it gets really hot and sometimes I find that it's dead even though it would normally have plenty of charge. Taking the battery out and replacing it works but I know it will grow hot again. I've taken off any recent games or apps I've installed and Lookout Security doesn't find anything. Was there ever any firmware to prevent this from happening?

I own sgs 2 for 7 months. My phone runs well when it's gingerbread. then i upgrade to ICS. Then my phone gets overheat and hang. my routinities now are take off the battery, give my phone some air and put the battery back. it's exhausting!the phone never hanged when i used Gingerbread. it was hot sometimes, but never overheat like this.i've eve charged the battery when it's in hot condition. well, the battery was fully charged. but when i turned off and turned it on again the battery level became low.
