Hello
I have the Nexus 5 and I have problem of overheating.
I used a lot of roms (SlimKat, Official 4.4.4 with ART & Dalvik, Android L, etc.) and a lot of kernels (franco, x elemental, etc)
None of kernels nor roms fixed the overheating problem



I used CPU-Z to see the temp of my phone. It was 44C. I used the phone only for internet (10mins).


Any help here???

44C is still cold, your body temp is 37C. and if your phone overheats, it will shut down. the overheat temp is 105C. anything lower than that isnt overheating. and feel doest tell you what temp it actually has, all its doing is comparing temps to your hand.

If you're really concerned, you can experiment with undervolting your CPU/GPU and underclocking the CPU/GPU. I don't own a Nexus 5, but I'm sure there is no need to do any of the above.

undervolting will lower cpu temps a little, but its not a huge difference.

Correct, but with the way he worded his concern, it seems as if he would be willing to take any step possible to prevent the device from "burning" his hand

if he doesnt like how the heat feels on his hand, id stop playing cpu intensive games
as it can get darn hot when doing so. i keep my throttle disabled and watch a live cpu temp notification, ive gotten as hot as 86C playing ridge racer for nearly an hour
