Default Real Racing 3 is very choppy, is it normal?

Hi everyone!

I bought myself a Nexus 5 from Switzerland for Christmas and I love games. I played lots of games but there is a problem with Real Racing 3...
After about 5 minutes, I get lower FPS and the game is not so smooth, very choppy... Its about 20-25 FPS.
The phone gets hot as well, but with other games its just warm.
I have stock 4.4.2, my nexus 5 isnt rooted and I havent unlocked the bootloader.
I am worried because I think that my device is faulty.
Can it be caused by the thermal throttling?
Is my device faulty or is this "normal"?
Please let me know as soon as possible, because I am very excited.
I live in Hungary so sending it back to replace it is a very long process...
Thank you in advance!

Hello, haven't tried that specific game but what you describe sound exactly like thermal throttling... No need to send it back, imho, just root stock and flash custom kernel. There are way to stop thermal throttling even without the custom kernel but imho it's easier, faster and safer to simply flash something like franco or linaro.
