I was too, I had to actually go outside. can you believe that?! making me walk around OUTSIDE!
but no really I did have to step outside, it relies only on the GPS signal and wont use 4g or WiFi to figure out your location.

initial install/setup heat was odd but it's temporary, once youre up and running it cools down quite a bit.

Since i activated 2D Gpu acceleration in developer options, i have an ice block. It barely gets warmer than my skin. During charging it gets warm, but not hot.

I'm often having it thermal throttle actually, but one thing needs to be said: it's really hot outside.
Used it as a constantly on Gps under the sun (40C, on a motorcycle) in a biiig rubber cover and once the job was done, it was throttled back to stone age. I actually took the batttery out for a while because i got scared it wouldn't revert to being snappy as supposed.
Of course this is an extreme use scenario: phone did not switch off by itself, and kept working: it just took 5 seconds to get from normal camera to fishe....i mean wide lens

Nice, might try that. I imagine battery time gets better too or?

At the moment it's pretty much optimized for battery lifetime but i'm really pleased with the 2800mah battery. I've barely touched it yesterday since i'm having a men flue (a real one, i'm almost seeing the light...) therefore the results are not too representative but the average given is accurate. It's keeping its breath longer than with the cpu doing all the work, thats for sure. A wild guess... 20%...

Kind regrets

I just picked up a G5 on Monday after my Nexus 4 finally bit the dust. The N4 got super super hot after the screen was on for a while, to the point where it seriously lagged out and I had to put it down for a bit and cool off. Doing the same things with the G5 and it is barely noticeable. It's gets a little warm, but not screaming hot like the N4 did. I'm happy with it.

It doesnt get hot , its really comfortable to play but i give -1 on this one because its from throttling caused during the game , Antutu benchmark is also the prouf , 2nd 3d test (Garden) is lower than any other phone with snap 820. I would trade some extra heat for more stable performance!

Love the G5. Mine doesn't get that hot. Just the normal hot temp. Love the camera, the performance, the spare battery with battery kit, also a spare of antenna modules (LG Camplus).
