    While playing graphic intensive games for 10-15 mins at a stretch, my phone really heats up and then shuts down.

    This happened with 2-3 graphic intensive games I played. :mad:

    Anyone have a similar problem?

    I was honestly asking if this is happening only to me or to others with the S2 as well? I dont think I asked if I should be playing them on the S2 or not. :cool:

    I had this same problem with my N1. It was worse when connected to 3G, try wifi only or airplane mode to see if that improves things.

    My phone never restarted while playing games ( I play real football, PES 11, and others Non stop). It used to heat up a lot, but after the root that I made it is stable.

    i think people buy this phone to enjoy features like graphics in games on this great screen among other things.. and i, like many others, have replaced my ipod with this phone..

    i game a bit, but not a lot.. and my phone has never restarted, just some times got a bit hot on earlier firmware.. which firmware version are u running?

    and which firmware is that? there are early 2.3.3 firmwares that caused heating very easily, even when using 3G for about 30min, i felt my phone get quite hot.. that was version KE7
    to find out ur phone firmware, dial *#1234# on ur dialer, and see wat it says.. the last 3 digits are wat u need (KE7, KF2 etc) if its an old firmware, ur better off flashing a new firmware

    I flashed 2.3.4 KG2 and now no more burning device issue, just some normal heat after an hour playing online at modern combat 2

    Like i said, you really need to flash 2.3.4 or root and get setcpu. Over heat is caused by the android version installed in your phone that allow the dualcore to work to much. 2.3.4 resolve this by allowing it not going at 1.2ghz. You can root too to set it lower with setcpu. This is a little advice i give you, for me the problem is resolved and i can now play games for hours online!

    u dont need to go as far as rooting and using setCPU, just flashing a newew firmware takes care of the heating problem. flash OXA KG5 from here and u will immediately notice that the heating problem is reduced (or completely gone) even with pretty heavy gaming. is a bug found in early firmware. good luck :)

    It's like saying "I won't take photos on my SGS2 because it's $600 and if I wanted a $600 camera I'd go buy one." ...what? It's $600 because it can play games/music/videos, take photos, be a phone and much more all in one.

    I had my SGS2 on 2.3.3 for a week and playing PSX roms on FPse got pretty hot. Playing it on my new Revolution rom has immediately fixed it. Sits at around 45-50 max when gaming.

    Edit: Just realised I revived an old thread :p
