Hmmm he must use his phone quite a lot. I'm assuming he has two batteries and swaps them from time to time to allow for one to charge while the other is in use.

He should sue the company and get a compensation the hospital bills aren't going to pay themselves. ;)

"but they did make it clear that the lithium-ion battery " he can only sue himself for being stupid, he didnt take care of properly sealing off the terminals from metal to metal contact from whatever he was doing.

Ignore LOL_WUT. Either he is a troll or just doesn't read the stories.

My nexus 4 gets pretty hot as well and it's Lithium Polymer. When it's doing something intensive that required 4G, it goes past 100 degrees sometimes. :/
