Default [Q] Does the Nexus 5 CPU throttle down while charging?

Been experiencing slight lagging when running some light to medium intensive apps, like Flipboard, Newsstand or PvZ 2. Is it due to the Snapdragon throttling down to prevent temperature spike? Anyone ezperiencing this?

It throttles down when "hot"

Always read the OP's of a thread and the last 2 pages before asking questions, unless there has been an update - in which case, read the last 5 pages!

Charging the battery causes the phone to heat up. The more the phone is doing during that time the hotter it will get (above average usage) and more likely for CPU throttling to occur.

Try disabling as many background apps and processes as you can to reduce the phone's current draw while charging. You can also have it charge faster and cooler in Airplane mode but of course many apps would not be usable then.
