    Hi all !
    I just bought a new Google nexus 7 2013
    But after just playing 5min of the game subway surfer the tablet becomes hot near the camera is that normal?
    Also even web browsing the web over WiFi it gets a little hot in the same spot ,not hot like playing games but still hot!
    Did this happen to you also? Or I shall return it?!
    Thnx in advance

    Edit: on a 30min play with the game (subway surfer) i got a 31* celsius battery temperature

    Sounds like that's where the SoC is located. It's normal for the SoC to heat up when being tasked (and internet browsing does task the SoC).

    Look up reviews of the Nexus 7 to see if anybody else is having the same issue. That will tell you for sure.

    The more power you ask from the device, the more it gives, the more it electricity it needs to perform what you want.
    It's normal.
    Me S4 also heats up a bit if I do a lot of things at once.

    My N7 (2013) gets hot (on high performance games) on the "S" of NEXUS.

    are you running a stock rom?

    I forgot
    That's normal.

    Also, literally just googling "Nexus 7's high temperature" gave me tons of results about it, and it appears that the max temp the Nexus 7 is able to tolerate is around 100C, so 30C is absolutely nothing to worry about.

    Nexus 4 here and yes it gets hot near the camera. Its perfectly normal for any device to heat up when your tasking them (Playing games, listening to music, watching videos and web browsing)
