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 T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 8 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!

the only heat I have noticed was when I first got the phone and hooked it up to an Anker fast charger(usb-c/usb-c) battery pack. After its first full charge, no heat. stayed relatively cool.
Will update with changes as needed.

I have experienced no warm up or heat at all with my Note 8. This makes me very happy

My Note 7 would get almost hot but haven't noticed ant heat on the Note 8 or S8+ while playing games and on the charger.

I have to agree with the previous posters. The Note 8 compared to the Note 7, S7 Edge and S7 has vertually none of the heating issues that the 7 series did.

Heavy use with and without charger plugged in, barely warm.

As the previous posters, I can attest the 7 series phones got hot, very hot after heavy usage. I saw a YouTube video of the Note 8 being torn down yesterday and saw there is a heat pipe from the processor that is designed to channel the heat from the CPU to the phone's frame. Next gen CPU must really run cooler.

It runs much cooler than my V20. But seriously this device doesn't get hot at all. The only time I've gotten it hot is when I first got it and it was installing multitudes of apps.
