Battery of Z10 Model STL100-2 gets heat

Hi all,


I purchased a simfree BBZ10 STL100-2 from UK. After using for a while (especially viewing photos, watching movies for about 10-15 mins), it gets hot in the back. Is it a normal norm?


Please advise.

Re: Battery of Z10 Model STL100-2 gets heat


Whenever the phone uses intense cpu power, the back of the phone gets hot(the battery area). This is normal after 1 week of use, it seems to get a lot better.. My Kids play rip tide and hook the z10 HDMI o the TV and it does get a little hot after 20 minutes , but a lot better than 4 weeks ago when I first got the phone. For normal use it should be fine.. Only intense cpu usage ..
