    As said my galaxy S tablet 10.5 gets really hot after using it for about 20mins, playing games especially, is this normal or should I take back to store.
    Please advise.

    Welcome to the Forums.☺

    A certain amount of heat as a by-product of the processor working hard, especially with processor-intensive applications such as some games, is normal....in fact, inevitable. Whether the heat is excessive is really down to common sense judgment. There are apps you can install that will measure the battery and CPU temperatures if you're interested, but my own view is that what most of us would call 'warm' is okay, and what most of us would call 'hot' probably isn't.
    Try getting some advice from the device customer care if you're in any doubt.

    If the entire screen iis hot, it's probably not the processor, which is a LOT smaller than the screen. If, as Belodion said, it's warm all over, it's probably okay. If it's hot in one small area, that could be the processor - use an app to measure the temperature. If the entire screen is uncomfortably hot, I'd take it back. But the screen can be a little warmer than the table the tab is sitting on if you're playing a game with a log of fast moving, bright video. That's normal. The LEDs behind the screen (what creates the light you see) do get warm.
