It's safe, because it's throttling at that temperature.
It's basically no longer running full speed, it drops the Max frequency.
If it's still too hot, reduces frequency more.
It'll even disable cores when it gets too hot.

A tip for playing video games, find the lowest frequency for CPU and GPU that allows you to run your have smoothly, then you create less heat.
Based on the game, that *might* prolong the time before it gets too hot.
If manual control of your device is not acceptable, at least it's safe because of thermal throttling.
Email me, i suck at replying to PMs.

Even 80-81 is safe too?
It just happened while charging in case in a very hot area, usually its much cooler in other where i use it.
Never was hotter than 81C...

dont do that, it can harm your hardware. not because of the temp differences, but there could be moistre buildup in your device that could harm it.

I downloaded an app which shows the cpu temperature and while playing it was 75-76C...
While charging it can go up to 79C but i have a spigen ultra hybrid case on the phone at all times.
I am a bit worried. Are these temps okay during games?
While browsing with chrome the phone gets a bit warm, the app shows 49-50C but while its on charger it can go up to 55-56C.
Is it normal?
Is it okay how it behaves?
