So, does the iphone 8/8+ get hot from gaming?

And how is battery drain?
On my 6s+ for example, Mortal Kombat X drains it and heats it like crazy. So do some AR apps.
How are things for the lucky 8/8+ gamers?

My new 8 handles The Talos Principle admirably- no heating or anything. I donít think developers are really making games yet to put the 8 to the test.

I'm just a sixteen bit sprite in an eight bit game.

Hi, i don't have Talos Principle unfortunately, how about MKX or Into the Dead 2 at highest settings? These are my two current most heat producing/battery draining games. It would help if you could get either(free to download) so we can compare the difference.

This game isn’t one of the 2 but a fallout/ STALKER type game came out yesterday called The Sun: Origin and with the settings all turned up to max, it ran almost perfectly on my iPhone 8 plus except. The heat. I thought my phone was going to catch fire! Lol
