Please is it normal for my phone to get hot when i play game, watch video or when connected to the internet?
Yes it is very normal but it also depends.This is so because at that point in time the phone processor is at constant work just so you can have a great game play or whatever you are using your phone for.
Some processors do quite will in not heating quickly compared to others.....cannot go much into that for now cause there are so many of them.
Another thing to note is that the battery is also at work discharging at its maximum rate just to meet up for the power consumption rate, this can also cause heating in phones.
Processor frequency scaling can be applied to mostly rooted android phones with customized roms. The lower the processing rate the less likely to have a heating phone but this comes at a price in terms of having a really smooth running phone...I tend to do this mostly and hardly have heating issues on android platform.
Note also that phone heating can be termed normal only if the rate at which it heats is not too quick or much. A phone that heats even when you receive calls for a continues 5-10 minutes is something that i do not term normal at all.
Such a phone will need to be sent back for replacement cause it can have a lot of effects on the phone.
Phones normally get hot the most when you have Wifi turned on and browsing with it whiles other apps are in working in the background so be sure to close programmes that you are done using.
