I wonder if they took into account that a stone surface can potentially cool the phone? don't know if that is the case here.
Great video! Loved that you included the raw data, not just the graphs. Also, really appreciate you actually used the name "steady-state"! Keep up the great work 🙂
Hmmmm I think the table acted as a heat spreader?
On my phone the case replace the back so it doesn't inpact much on performances^^Yes my phone is a bit old it is Samung Note 3.
We still forget the windows phones
did any one else notice the high pitch sound at
and a few other ones? very distracting…
I reason why covering the display resulted in more throttling is because the light from the display is being reflected back onto the chassis
Use excel and make curves !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"can we return this?"

Well it will get heavier no matter what. So the different weight could effect the throwing speed of the the Phone even if it's just a slight difference.
So yes a case will effect your phone's speed even though it will most likely be so insignificant that I won't matter at the end of the day.
No, it makes it hotter, which in turn makes it slower.
So android devices are known to have random app crashes all the time and iPhones are known to have stable and high quality apps right? Guess what it's the exact opposite of it.🤣
S10 plus is better in a closed case compared to iphone

Apple Leather case ewww, A ripof

does the case slow down the wifi
Linus: "so we all know that extended work will thermal throttle any phone"
Also Linus: fails to throttle two phones with intense work
Holy crap pubg monile sponsored them, doomed
Wtf is up with his hair
What about screen protectors
Anyone else think this was a tech quickie video before hand?
Did anyone check if the proximity sensor caused the thermal throttling?
(i.e. if the phone is in your pocket, that is a good feature to have)
Instead of the idea that phones vent though the screen . . ?
Without watching the video I can tell you it does. Just by experience
Play CYBER HUNTER / SUPER MECHA CHAMPIONS
I guess phone manufactures know your hand will be on the back of the phone so have deigned it to breath through the screen.
what does it mean when there is no score for a particular run shown in the table?

I really like that editing when you went to google maps and zoomed out on your current destination, and then went and zoomed in on your determined destination. That was dope
Linus: Can we return it?
If you put some thermal pads on the back of the phone or something to give extra passive cooling would that help with or without case?
Wait I didnt know the workshop was coming back
You should retry but add active cooling to see. The heat could be saturating both the glass backs and the cases since no heat is being carried away efficiently. It also may matter how the tests were done; whether the phones were held or put on the counter top as this would also effect how heat is carried away. If they were all on the surface then it restricts airflow and how heat can be removed. Combine this with the fact that the backs of the phones are glass which is an insulator in its own right these results aren't surprising.
I liked the google maps shot nice
What about screen protectors?
Where is rhinoshield ? lol
I've been using PIA for multiple years (even before they were sponsors of the show). Today was my first time using your sponsor code and renewing my subscription for another 2 years. I really like the copious amounts of servers, the speed and ease of use they offer. 5/7 can recommend.

Reads the title: what is this nonsense, obviously not.
Watches 1 min of the video: Oooh
Lol I truly never thought about this. But then again I’m one of those morons that don’t use a case with my phone that cost half the price of my pc rig 🙃🙃🙃 hope I don’t drop it 1200 dollars later
You guys are significantly affecting the tests by being inconsistent in laying the phone on the marble surface (which is an excellent thermal conductor) vs keeping it in your hand.
