    I was a little disappointed because the iPhone lasted longer but I'm sure Samsung is being very careful about their phones getting hot.

    Filming outside in 100-degree heat, camera shut down because the phone was too hot after less than five minutes. It was mostly continuous filming. Got warning, camera stopped.

    Switched over to an iPhone - it went almost 10 minutes and it shut down due to heat as well.

    My GS8+ has the most minimal case I could possibly get. Just a thin plastic layer. The iPhone case was a little more substantial but nothing heavy duty.

    I'm just curious now because I have never had a camera shut down like this. I've also filmed inside for quite a bit longer. How does using the camera generate excessive heat? Is it just because of the screen being on? Looks like Apple hasn't figured out how to handle it either.

    Not a deal breaker. This is not something I do very often. Glad I know the limit now.

    Using the camera, especially filming, I believe uses a lot of processing power that generates hear.

    There is nominal cpu use.. the screen probably generated more heat.. but also the case is absorbing so much light, try getting a white or mirror finish case for it.

    That's an interesting point about the case. I'll keep that in mind.

    Well as stared his iPhone did it as well. I get India can be hot but there are varying degrees of hot. Such as heat in Vegas is different then heat in Florida.

    Phones are nothing more then computers.. tax them a bunch and cause heat and also be in a really hot area it will cause it to go into cool down mode. This isn't new to tech .
