No,its not. Its because the CPU and GPU are having to work harder to render the QHD display,therefore there more heat.

There is no such thing as over heating. People are just crying about stuff.

This def doesn't get as hot as the S4, Note 3, or S5 that I've recently had. It even stays cooler than the G2 I had also.

How long were you using the GPS, when it got 120 degree?

I see 170* plus sometimes. I use a Xposed add in to display CPU temp in status bar. GPS makes it hot because screen is always on. Lowering the brightness helps, but when using the GPS on a longer trip I try and aim some AC at it and then it cools down to 120-130*. My previous phone Note 3 did the same thing although I think the LG G3 gets a little hotter. Sure I worry about heat damaging components that's why I monitor CPU temp through Xposed.

I use GPS mapping apps all the time and don't keep the screen on. Google maps won't query location when the screen is off unless you run something else like Locus in the background to keep the tracking active. Never have any issues with heat.
