    Any phone or tablet that us used for games gets hot. Mine gets hot too. I'm not to worried about it. You should be either.

    After some extended Video Chat & Share with another Zed owner mine got up to 40 degrees C, but cooled down right after. Get the free Battery Lover app from BB World, as it measures the heat of your unit.

    Gaming heats up all devices...screen usage is intense so it heats up and drains battery as well...

    Your computer will also get warm when it's actually doing things, this is normal

    The back of the Z10 is very thin, it is going to conduct more heat to the outside than some phones. This is a good thing in keeping the inside of the phone cooler.
    If the heat bothers you, maybe get a case to insulate the heat from your hand, but you are not helping in keeping the inside of the phone cooler.

    Insulating the heat within the device wouldn't be a good idea. Heat increases resistance in electrical circuits, which leads to even more waste heat buildup and battery voltage drops, so you'll want to release that heat as much as possible. On a similar note, black is a good colour for electronics, because it has the highest emissivity value, which means it dissipates the most heat.
