phone heat up from browsing


Dec 4, 2013
Hey so I just got my nexus 5 recently and I noticed it getting warm just from browsing. Is this happening to anyone else? I'm planning in returning it because of this. And it also seems to get warm from texting
Side note: I don't have any other apps out while texting or browsing.
Well, when I browse the internet the phone also gets warmer. That is because browsing the web is a demanding job for the processor and you probably have 4g turned on right? So that is something completely normal.
Gets warmer while sending texts? Well depends on how much you text. If the phone doesn't get burning hot that is fine, because this is a smartphone and in the background it is doing things you don't even know about (syncs your contacts, e-mails, photos etc...)
