I get all that, I think I was over thinking it because it was late. I’ll share my thought process so you can tell me if I’m being dumb or not.
My current phone has a plastic case, as have the last few I’ve owned. Rarely, the phone has caught my attention because it started getting warm. I wouldn’t consider the plastic case part of a heat transfer mechanism because its a better insulator than conductor; thus, if its getting my attention because its getting warm, the CPU must be getting really warm (which it was, relatively to normal use, because it had got itself stuck in a loop doing something and the phone had to be restarted).
So with that in mind, if my phone had a metal case (metal being a much better conductor than insulator) and the CPU got stuck in a loop doing something and was thus heating up, I imagined that the phone would do much more than develop a warm spot on the case. It sounds like, in that scenario, the whole case would heat up significantly more that what I have previously experienced.
Having said all that, I have no idea how hot the L5’s CPU can get, nor how well its heat transfer mechanism works. I wasn’t saying “this phone’s setup is going to put scars on my leg when it lights my jeans on fire,” I just thought that, should the CPU become confused enough, the phone could get alarmingly hot.
But again, I don’t really know, which is why I said “I dunno how I feel about that.” Thoughts?
