    Is it an LCD? That is a "Liquid"
    That's all danger-close to the screen, if it isn't an LCD, WTF were they thinking....
    I had a Motorola DROID, the very first one. I recently pulled it out of a box & flashed a custom rom onto it. It was Cyanogenmod Android 4.2.1 Jellybean?
    It had overclock options, the stock clock was around 800mhz IIRC.
    Well, I said F-it and set it to OC @ 2.1GHZ LOL
    less than 5 minutes later, the screen had now gained 3 psuedo-holepunch-screen style black dots, around the same size & all. Played a game on it & it got so hot i thought it was gonna catch on fire & the lowly 1300MAH battery died within 20minutes. It never turned back on. Lol

    Great video, but wouldn't a better test be playing a memory demanding game on this phone and on a similar specs (minus the water cooling) phone and see if the "water cooling" was actually doing something? :-) a few degrees of less heat would or should effectively stress the processor and memory less.

    OK, so you are holding a phone without having it soaking into water. So you know no matter what tech it use it must transfer thermo by air and your hand -- and you don't need to disassemble the phone. If your whole point is that the cooling system eventually uses air contact, then I think the entire process of open the phone is stupid. After all, the video is BIASED and INTENTIONAL. And you are losing integrity .

  • Daniel T

    Basic thermodynamics shows us that heat will try to reach equilibrium with anything contacting the item (in this case, a phone). So its cold outside and you want more processing power from your phone. Play your games outside or from a cracked window. This is assuming your device thermal throttles. If not, then cooling the device would have basically no effect, except maybe extend its lifespan via heat reduction. Even a regular house fan would help somewhat, since air cools down as it expands, which is what fans kinda do. And yes, your hand as well, but this is negligible. Also know that when your device is very warm to the touch, it is most likely going to slow down or even shutdown to prevent major damage. Even though the outside may be only warm, the chips are much much hotter. I boosted my ZTE Axon 7's Antutu score by 40k points simply by chilling the phone with about 40°F ambient air from outside blowing in over the phone via convection. Goodluck!
