    If ya looking for a gaming phone, Black Shark 2 is all you need. It has a gaming mode where your calls and notifications are ignored. Too good in performance. Never found it heating at all. The only thing is camera, that's ok and not so great. But anyways if you want a gaming phone, camera really doesn't matter much. So go for it.
