So I was playing the Simpsons tapped out game tonight, a game that usually taxes my phone to the max when I'm playing it so I only play it before bed plugged into a charger. Recently I dropped ktoonsez kernel since it was way behind CM (no disrespect to KT intended), I had it set to throttle the CPU so it wouldn't get past 55C, which is warm to the touch but not ridiculous. CM has no such built in function.
Tonight my phone kept getting hotter and hotter as I played...and suddenly after about 15 or 20 minutes my phone crashed. I was able to immediately boot up with no issues...and I took a look at the CPU temp, after booting it was at 85C!
Is there something wrong here? I know old AMD PC CPUs can climb up to 100C OK but I've never had my phone this hot. It was almost enough to burn my hand through my otterbox case. I know I can probably find some throttling app, which I plan to do soon, but should I be worried about my phone being able to get this hot?
