    Hey hey guys! For the people who might have S6 edge and sometimes use it to play some games do you feel some overheat on it while playing games? Or this isn't normal?

    It's pretty normal for certain CPU intensive games, specially if you have a restrictive case. For extended playing, I would pop off the case (if you are using one).

    No. I'm not using a case. And I am playing normal tap games like Tap tycoon and that simulator game. It is not an heavy game

    Warm to the touch after extended play is normal, it's when it gets uncomfortably warm or hot, that you can have issues. Keep in mind, simulator games tend to be CPU intensive. If your phone is performing normally in most other the circumstances, I would not be too concerned.

    Yes. I understand now because that is too much to process while tapping a lot of times on the screen that's why it get so warm or hot right?

    Sort of. It's not the tapping itself, but the constant refreshing/changes in the screen and CPU working overtime during the simulation process. The tapping could instigate these changes. Worry not and enjoy your phone and its games.

    Anything around 140°is okay.

    There are apps to monitor Temps and apps to cool devices down (though I don't know how good they are).
     

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
