First Galaxy S7 teardown reveals the liquid cooling system

Vulcan graphics, and it has even created a dedicated Game Launcher that will minimize notifications and other disruptions while you game. The excessive heat generated by the GPU in these scenarios will now be taken away and distributed more evenly, thus avoiding any chance of overheating, freezes or shortened motherboard lifespan.First off, the Galaxy S7 indeed has a liquid cooling technology inside, how cool is that? We don't know, but it is built on some intricate flat copper piping with a tiny amount of liquid housed inside that is weaved around the CPU/GPU combo to take away the heat that the new Exynos 8890 and Snapdragon 820 chipsets would generate under, say, gaming stress. Samsung put a specific emphasis on the gaming abilities of its new handsets, as the phones support the new
The other interesting observation that the folks who disassembled the S7 had, is that there is only very strong and watertight adhesive gluing the rear cover to the frame, no rubber seals around, so they began wondering whether you could lose the IP68 waterproof rating if you leave the phone for a prolonged time in the heat somewhere, or if you take off the cover in a repair shop to replace the embedded battery or the screen. The other takeaway is that the power button is built on a very sturdy mechanism, and is unlikely to break easily with time, which sounds reassuring. Take a look at the first Galaxy S7 teardown below.
- Display 5.1" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2200 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3000 mAh(28h 3G talk time)

Yeah when Samsung does it then its a like natural wonder of the world. But when the 810 phones (Z5 has DUAL heat pipes) copied this tech from PC's, they were being bashed left right and center. PA should be ashamed of their disgusting behavior.

The only thing that sucks in this phone is the exynos. Pretty much sd820 version is flawless. I hope that the phone has no 4k recording limit finally. Otherwise, I'll be greatly disappointed.

I ve seen some antutu benchmark tests where the exynos scored higher than the sd820. But even if it had a lower score, it is still getting more than double what 2015 was scoring. So I fail to see how it sucks.

The SD800 was fast enough for me. From here on out it's all about power efficiency and I can't wait to read about which one performs better. I'm probably going to go with the G5 though so I guess it won't matter anyway.

The Exynos is more powerful. Exynos chips were always underclocked to meet same expectations to the SnapDragon variant. Or-else Exynos destroys the SnapDragon. Due to heat. Now they've used cooling system to reduce heat. They should've used an advance version and use the Exynos Soc at standard or uprated settings.

Sammy had to OC the exynos to keep up with the sd820, not the other way around. 810 was crap and exynos was amazing in 2015, but now the tables have turned. I'm not disappointed with the exynos cpu as much as I am with the crappy mali gpu that comes with it. Andreno has always been superior. That's the problem.

Wait for the real proper tests by reputed sites who know what they are doing in field( like anandtech or tomshardware), before coming to conclusion. Currently it looks like Exynos has 20% faster CPU and 10% slower GPU. It may change(for better or worse) with final software/hardware. Also keep into account that mali and powerVR are usually faster in real life games than adreno GPUs.

Damn.. I've been waiting for S7 to come out. But I think I was hoping for something slightly better (mostly in the camera department - still no info w.r.t. slow motion capabilities). Especially to go for a pre-order buy. Nonetheless, I don't see myself waiting for iphone 7 (which is unlikely to have a huge improvement camera wise). Decisions, decisions.
