Super late, but figure I'll add: something to consider is heat can shorten the life of a phone, typically through battery, sometimes other components. Yes there's repair and replacement (minus apple products, because, well if you're a techie you know why), but janky as this is, it seems like a valid way to extend the life of a phone for a heavy user, especially with some of the phones that are more prone to heating up.

I think you make a mistake with the test of benchmarking whit out cooling , in real situation your hand make the phone cool when it is over heat (because a have a s10 snap and whith hands the thermal throttling is lower than yours)

Just go in ANTARTICA :3

That was my favorite video you’ve ever done. When I’m bored I benchmark phones and tablets while they’re in the fridge. Moving them around on the cold glass every few seconds. It’s fun but I’m too lazy to record the results so it was awesome to see you break it all down.
I wonder how a simple small active AirCooler with a tiny battery would work. Or a small portable power bank with one built on.
If only I had the tools. (Hint hint)

What is the benchmark program?

@Linus Couldn't you just go swimming with the waterproof S10 phone to test thermals? You could swim around in a pool that would essentially be the same as liquid cooling the phone :)

I tried to play around with an augmented reality app on my Samsung S9, it heats up within a couple of minutes of usage and crashes. Have to cool it down with a small USB fan 😀 it also got RBG, by the way 😀

Dunno if its just my device (tab s2) but this video full screen doesn't scale aspect ratio properly. Been watching a few LTT vids just now, none of the others had an issue. Aspect ratio is fine if not fullscreen. Dunno if its just YouTube or your format or whatever.

Hmm I can reproduce.. only this vid.. I get black bars when windowed too and don't with any other video. Maybe I'll be nice and post screenshots on yer forum

Why tf do you use the iPhone 5 as a thermal camera?

why tf not ?

I predict this will accomplish nothing. Most of the heat won't be making it through all the layers of stuff between the cpu and the water block fast enough for temps to decrease.

Also, the background music in this one gets a bit grating after a while.

Well then. It does work.
