                    I can assure you that the *Snapdragon 855 processor* will never throttle!!. The Samsung Galaxy S10 is also equipped with a liquid cooling system inside of it. So yeah. I have the S10 *Snapdragon variant*

                            At the end of the video, I am pretty sure it should say "water cooled phone", not "water cooling phone".

                                                Should've used a graphite thermal pad just to see if that helped get temps even lower, although considering it ran at close to ambient anyway, guess it would've been kinda useless

                                                  iPhones don’t thermal throttle afaik, but they reduce the brightness of the display when they get hot
