This Is (Literally) The "Hottest" Smartphone Available Today.

It is reasonable for your smartphone to heat up a bit during intensive use. This is because the phone draws up power from the battery, causing it to become hotter when the power is drawn at a faster than normal rate—say when you’re playing games. However, it becomes a major problem when it gets too hot to use,  TechRadar in a bid to find out which device is the hottest, carried out a heat test. They put six phones against one another – specifically the iPhone 6s Plus, Galaxy S7 Edge, HTC 10, LG G5, Nexus 6P and the One Plus 3 — while playing Real Racing 3 for about 2 hours.

Each device measured about 77 degrees Fahrenheit before playing the game.
After 5 minutes, we had:

  • Coolest:  Galaxy S7 Edge – 89.6 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Hottest: HTC 10 – 99.9 degrees Fahrenheit

After 15 minutes – 

  • Coolest: Galaxy S7 Edge – 94.5 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Hottest: HTC 10 – 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit

After 45 minutes – 

  • Coolest: Galaxy S7 Edge – 100.2 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Hottest: HTC 10 – 107.6 degrees Fahrenheit

After 2 hours – 

  • Coolest: Galaxy S7 Edge – 101.7 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Hottest: HTC 10 – 111.2 degrees Fahrenheit

Check out the Final results below:

  • Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge – 101.7 F
  • Nexus 6P – 104.4 F
  • iPhone 6S Plus – 104.9 F
  • OnePlus 3 – 105.6 F
  • LG G5 – 107.4 F
  • HTC 10 – 111.2 F

 
I was slightly shocked with the results; I expected the HTC 10 to do better. Unfortunately, the HTC 10 was the hottest, and the S7 Edge clinched the title for the coolest phone available today. #TheIrony!

    Well I’m not surprised, considering the fact that someone dropped a frozen Samsung off a building and the device doesn’t even flinch, this shouldn’t be new..
