    Default VZW nexus overheating

    My VZW galaxy Nexus with samsung extended battery overheats when I use the navigation and when I watch a video and when it gets below 20% on battery and when I use the car charger.
    Battery temps goes to 122 F, it ha been so hot it has discolored my sim card.

    I dont know if it's the battery or the phone Warranty is up in Dec.

    Any suggestions??

    I'd try putting the standard battery in for a day or two. I know it wont last as long, but you can determine if your extended battery is malfunctioning. Mine always gets pretty warm when navigation, but I don't think it gets that hot. I'll check it next time I'm nav'ing around.

    Mine usually gets warm while using navigation, but I think it's because the sun is usually beating down on it. Try keeping the screen off while you're on long stretches of road, or keep it off your windshield.

    Other than that, it's just the nature of the phone.

    I'm putting the standard battery in tonight and see if that makes a difference tomorrow. I may have a bad extended battery.

    It'll get hot for several reasons, but the main ones are (1) 4G, (2) Dual Core, and (3) the screen.

    I was having over heating problems when i tried to do anything with twrp recovery.
    I recently changed my boot-loader because I was still on ICS boot-loader and it was working fine with the
    longer boot times happening sometimes but as soon as I changed over to the JB boot-loader
    I haven't had any issues
