Some phones are great to take camping because if you play Asphalt 8 long enough, the back warms up to the ideal temperature that can bake bread. Rate this thread to express the extent to which the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge stays cool under extended heavy use. A higher rating indicates that even when playing strenuous games for long periods of time, the phone doesn't get uncomfortably warm.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

So far I have read that the Exynos version runs cool and SD820 (some samples) were heating up under heavy use.

Do you have a link you can share? Cuz if anything I've heard that it's the Exynos 8890 is the hot chip.

"For the first time Samsung has established within the smartphone heat-conducting copper tube for cooling. The new chip Exynos 8890 is not only powerful, but also hot!"

When using the VR mine for really WARM but not as hot as my s5 can get, sometimes with general use.

Funny thing is that with previous phones, heat seemed to = battery drain, however so far battery seems fantastic for me even when got after using the VR.

Mine only got hot during initial setup. I haven't ran any games or benchmarks. It's warmer than my MXPE is but I think that's mostly because the MXPE has a bigger, thicker body which dissipates the heat.

Mine ran slightly warm when downloading 20 app's at once, and I wouldn't be noticable if I didn't look for it heh.

No issues with my SD820 heating up. No issues while gaming either.
