      I set my phone on a ziplock bag filled with water and got the same results. This worked while charging and gaming at the same time. Change the water out if it gets warm. (It never did for me)

              I thought the point was your body circulates heated blood in your hands away from your phone through your body, then uses evaporation to dissipate the heat. It was already liquid cooled, just not water!

                I would have been interested to see the other two in action too, but whatever.

                Now do a water cooled water cooler!

                      I play labor intensive mmos on my phone. And I can say I have never thermal throttled my s10. I always have a cpu/gpu usage meter on and fps metered at all times so I can safely say I haven't. But I always takenoffy case as well.
