Exclamation [Q] Nexus 5 Overheating After Update

My Nexus 5 has been running noticeably hot on idle after the 4.4.1 update. Is this something I should be concerned about? Has this been replicated in any other case? A little worried about this.

hot... what is your cpu temp? hot does not mean anything, its a relative term. if you give us a cpu temp, tben we can say if its hot or not. i say this because many complain about "overheating", then give us a cpu temp of around 37-38C. the funny thing is 37C is the average human body temp, so yhat is in no way overheated.

It peaked at around 45. Which I also read somewhere was the temp at which the CPU would start throttling. Which would've been alright, had there been any load. But it's getting there on idle. Would wiping cache do any good?

45C is well within normal, and not even considered hot. hot would be 65C and higher(if not watching videos or playing intense games). the safety shut down temp is 100C, which the phone will automatically shut off on its own.
