Heat dissipation is one of the most underestimated aspects of high-end smartphones, because only when you push the phone to the limit in a sustained manner, you will really notice a bad heat dissipation solution. This situation may occur when shooting 8K or 4K/60fps video for a long period of time, or when playing a technically demanding game for a period of time.
Rumors spread last week suggesting that Samsung’s Galaxy S22 series may not provide steam chamber cooling for cost-related reasons. Instead, the company tends to use the thermally conductive graphite pads we saw on the S21 series. But what do readers prefer? This is the question we asked last week, and this is the result.
Do you care about the heat dissipation technology of the S22 series?
The poll was released on August 24, and more than 1,300 votes have been counted so far. It turns out that “I’m good to any one” is the most popular single choice among respondents (about 41%). This shows that as long as the temperature is controlled, many people do not care about the exact cooling solution.
The second most popular option is steam chamber cooling (~37%). Graphite pad cooling only accounts for about 5% of the votes, which shows that people who really care about the specific cooling technology of the Galaxy S22 series have an overwhelming support solution.
Finally, about 16% of respondents said that they do not care about the cooling solutions of the Galaxy S22 series. This is an understandable position, because cooling is usually not one of the most compelling features in smartphones. Other features such as screen quality, camera, charging speed, battery capacity, etc. tend to receive more attention from consumers and manufacturers.
Interestingly, just over 57% of respondents said that either cooling solutions are feasible or they don’t care about cooling technology at all. At the same time, 42% of people have a specific solution. From another perspective, approximately 83% of the readers surveyed want a specific solution or are satisfied with any one of them.
- Patrick Mac: I don’t care what they do with the phone, but I don’t want it to overheat like the current S21 Ultra Exynos variant. I always ask if I can’t record 4K and 8K. What’s the use for recording videos for more than 5 minutes, the phone will not overheat .
- Farhan Ahmed Tajudin: If the upcoming Exynos/Snapdragon chipset has a higher thermal efficiency than the current chipset, it should be no problem for me.
