I was wondering if nc5 with safestrap is just like this, or if it was just user error by me.
These phones can run really hot depending on what you're doing with it.
Around 90ish is very common. Mine has been running from 70 all the way up to 101
As far as benchmarking... You could run 10 different tests and come up with 10 very different scores and there's quite a bit that goes into tweaking these phones that directly impacts those scores. The actual temp of your phone is one of them BTW.
I wouldn't worry too much about those scores and just base it off of how the phone behaves and responds to what you put it through.
I can flash a couple different patches in recovery and boost my Quadrant score from 8,000 to 13,500 and really... There's no crazy difference for me while actually using the phone...
