My phone becomes warm when I use my Gear VR

Last Update date : 2017.06.30

As the device is using a lot of power to run Gear VR applications, your phone may become warmer than normal when used with the Gear VR. This situation may specifically occur when using the devices to watch video or play games for an extended period of time.

Note: Proceed with caution when handling the Galaxy S7 if the device is hot to the touch after it has been used with the Gear VR, allow it to cool down before touching it or using it again.
