When using the Gear VR, my phone often feels hot to the touch

When using apps that require a higher amount of power than normal or when using apps on your phone for an extended period, the phone may feel hot to the touch.

 

When the Gear VR detects a high temperature, a message appears on the screen warning you to stop wearing the Gear VR and to wait for it to cool down. Stop using the Gear VR until the phone cools down, and then resume use.

 

This is normal and should not affect your phone's lifespan or performance.
