Motorola Droid Bionic Gets Hot and May Overheat


Motorola DROID BionicBattery problems tend to frequent Motorola Droid Bionic. Although Motorola Droid Bionic has been released just a few days ago, this model was announced much earlier at the CES trade show way back in the month of January. However, during that period, this model appears far more different than now. Motorola seems to have redesigned its model once again in order to please its valuable consumers. This model can create a problem for the already launched model of Droid X2.

Contrary to what was shown at CES, this model is more or less similar to Verizon smartphones. This model features a square face, and hosts a humped back for its camera that is exhibited on the Droid X2 and Droid X. This newly launched product is pretty similar to other Motorola Droid models.

There was a comment in a forum:

“I had to bring back 2 phones already for overheating and they were just in my jacket walking my dog. Now this phone speakerphone is greyed out with blue-tooth for just using the headphone jack, and yes, a hard reset works, but anytime I use a pair of headphones I have to hard reset phone. Last chance – may have to move on to a better phone”

Some of the users even pointed out that are facing problems while charging their Motorola Droid Bionic. In conclusion, every user has to anticipate some kind of problems with their new phones at first and once Verizon and Motorola release a series of updates they should be able to get down to the bottom of any issues with the Droid Bionic.

    I also have problems with my phone getting hot (up to 120 degree’s according to battery widgets). I get my replacement tomorrow, hoping for the best?

  2. 120 degrees is definitely not normal. Your battery should average during heavy usage no higher than 35-40 degrees and when it wakes from idle state 29-31 degrees would be ideal. Anything higher just kills the battery life faster. Let us know how you make out.

    I tried my Vehicle Dock for the Bionic for the first time yesterday and today. After 15 minutes or so, the battery stopped charging. When I arrived at my destination and removed the Bionic from the mount, it was very hot. I had a similar issue with my original Droid. In that case, I didn’t notice that the Droid wasn’t charging until the battery went dead, even though it was plugged into the Verizon supplied charging cable. With the Bionic, I started with 90% charge and after the 15-20 minute drive with the charger connected, I was down to 60%. I am using the extended battery.

    This tends to make the Bionic (and my original Droid) useless for GPS Navigation except for short periods to get additional detail that Garmin decided to remove from semi-recent Nuvi devices (e.g. 765T).

    Are there any workarounds for this? Otherwise the GPS Navigation is just a toy unless you hold the phone in front of the A/C to keep it cool. Maybe a water cooled case is in order !

    Did anyone’s bionic ever stop having signal when using wifi then getting in your car and driving out of range and switching back to 3G network (and NO SIGNAL)?
    (I live out of range for 4G)
