My battery jumps from 34ºC to 40ºC in 2 minutes, the time that I played.
Using a stock battery? Your case seems really strange, my phone already got up to 50°C and I REALLY felt the heat. At 84°C I'm not sure that the feeling is 'quite hot' but 'on fire!' lol
But system panel AND myrt could not be wrong... may be the battery sensor?...
I don't have many ideas, but even your phone's hot, 84°C should not work, damage the phone & so on... It is more probably a sensor or batt' driver problem, I think...
My 2 cents. Can you try with another battery or another kernel version?
