Battery consumption, data usage, heat generation

1st-So I'm at home on WiFi now but have never gone over my data capture but this game consumes the most of all I play. Not a big deal I just get throttled to 2g.

2nd- my battery drains so fast on this game even on WiFi over 15% in 15-20 mins. I have a note 3 with a 3000mihr battery so not a small battery compared to other phones.

3rd- the heat this game generates most likely from church usage. Never had my phone get above 53° Celsius today it got to 66° Celsius with 30 mins of game play.

Anyone else see any of these things?

    When my phone starts getting hot and draining fast like that, it usually means one of two things.

    1) It needs a restart to clear temporary memory OR

    2) The battery is reaching the end of its useful life. I notice that you have a Note 3. Since they are making Note 6s now, that tells me the phone is a few years old. Most rechargeable batteries only have a 3 year useful life. I use my phone so much that I have to replace the battery about every 2 years (If I don't upgrade). Check the battery. Overheating can cause the battery to swell. When that happens, it no longer makes a clean connection (so, a full battery can read as low) and needs replacing (and, at that point, lithium ion batteries become a risk for exploding as well).

    Ya I forced closed all apps and restarted the phone and started the game up after it cooled down and it persisted. And yes the note 3 is old and the original battery. Just odd this is the only app I run that causes this making me think it could also be a game/development issue.

    I mess with my phones running note 5 custom software and kernel right now. I've been meaning to buy a zero lemon battery since I'm a heavy user as well. Downloaded "repair battery life" app to test the battery cells. 5 showed low but battery % was at 6% when ran it so not sure what to think on that.
