    First of all Sorry if this question is a repetition. Can't find a proper answer for this at least relevant to latest devices like Galaxy S7.

    I play lot of heavy games in S7 like MORTAL KOMBAT X, NFS No Limits, Real Racing, GTA Sanandreas, Modern Combat 5. Might be about 45 mins continuously, twice every day. The question is that whether heating up of device & the battery has any adverse affect/permanent damage to battery life(long term) causing it to last shorter when compared to how it was out of the box even with same amount of gaming. Hope everything is clear in the question.

    Thanks :)

    How you charge it will have more long term impact than playing games. The faster processors and bigger ram can handle the games better without heating up your battery as much as a few models of phone ago but if you daily let your battery drain below 20% before charging and/or start a charge above 80% left that will cause the battery to prematurely wear out faster than what you're asking.

    Heat is an enemy of a battery. So is extreme cold. It will affect it's longevity. But that is universal, not specific to the S7.
