Default [Q] Should i send my n5 to repair?

Hi ,

So....long story made really short. My cat decided to drop my n5 (white) from about 50 cm , at first i noticed no visual damage whatsoever and i tought ok... lucky day!!.
But (always a but) after close inspection i noticed 2 things :

- A white hue below the front facing camera ( a very light lightbleed perhaps ) , its really only visible when the black notification bar backgrounds it.

- A increased ( very!! ) battery drain caused by a ocasional surge of heat ( it seems to happen when inside a pocket and especially if the bat is below 50% ) , wich is puzzling me since my n5 pre-drop was always very cool.

So what do u guys think... i'm i paranoid or should i send it for a look. Trouble is i'ts my daily driver and atm my only phone....

Kind regards

I don't even want to know how your cat dropped your phone only 50cm. That's nothing. I doubt that did any damage

Probably paranoia from the drop. 50cm is a little under the average person's waist. Should be fine.
