    The quick answer is probably yes.

    You've got a small, tightly-packed computer doing very CPU and graphics-intensive work and they're not the best as heat dissipation.

    Also, if you've got a case on your Note 5, then your kind of keeping the heat in, too.

    Define "really hot" as I would expect a device to get quite warm when playing games on it:)
    I notice mine gets quite warm when using navigation for a while on Google Maps. I know it's not exactly the same, but I would assume the device has some sort of failsafe if it gets too hot so it won't damage the device.

    Edit: blasted ninja aliens!

    My "Hardcore" gaming habits on my Note5, which include Bejeweled 2 & PBA Bowling Challenge, barely tax the internals. :paperbagdroid: :D

    However, I can feel the heat when running a benchmark app such as Antutu.

    As stated in the previous posts, there are safeguards built-in, so the phone doesn't implode.
    You may notice this with a temporary performance hit while gaming, until temps fall below that range.

    What that magic number is, I couldn't say, but, if you do a YouTube search, look up Erica Griffin, aka the Technology Nerd, I think she did a test/video demo of the thermal throttling with the Note5.........
