    If I play heavy games on my iPhone (Infinity Blade II on an iPhone 5 to be exact), can it hurt the iPhone in a long term? I mean, does it do any slow damage to it that can shorten his life?
    The reason I'm asking is after playing I feel that the iPhone has heated greatly, and I wonder if that's bad... So, is it?

    No you can not damage your phone from heavy use, in short. The electronic components can sustain greater temperatures than mild heat you feel while playing.

    I guess comparatively speaking it can. Heavier use will wear most anything out faster compared to not using it heavily, especially the battery. That said, its insignificant and nothing worth worrying about. You will have owned many different phones before your current phone breaks from over use.....
