Gear VR: My mobile device becomes hot and a pop-up regarding cool down appears.

Last Update date : 2017.06.30

Your mobile device may become hotter than normal when it is used with the Gear VR, as Gear VR applications require more power to run. When the Gear VR detects a high temperature the quality of applications become degraded, or applications may be terminated to prevent overheating.

This is normal and does not affect the Galaxy S7 lifespan or performance. If this situation occurs, please allow the device to cool down before resuming use.
