    Not equivalent to what you'd call water-cooling on a PC. More like a heatpipe, as seen in laptops, tablets and some other phones.

    I can imagine some people trying to overclock it, and run some benchmark in ice cold water!

    Impressive phone, but the back cover looks like a magnet for fingerprints. Definitely NOT the phone for OCD users.

    Re: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge deep dive - is it really waterproof?

    Ive just come from my Samsung traning event and one of the main topics was the use of the word "Waterproof"

    In short there is no truly waterproof phone but the new S7 is a very good "Water resistant" device. We have been told never to use the term proof but use resistant instead. Ive played with the S7 and S7 Edge nd they are really, really good.

    IP68 is termed waterproof for 30 mins at up to 1 metre. Problem is if you use waterproof people will dive off a boat with phone in hand and wonder why at 3 or 4 metyres it's junked

    Surely the water cooling setup is just a gimmick, with such a small amount of water running through such small diameter pipes wont the water just get hot extremely quickly...and what is going to cool the water down....

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_pipe

    The water is cooled down by radiating heat. The advantage is you can radiate from where you like, rather than just immediately above the SoC.

    Re: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge deep dive - is it really waterproof?

    The "trending" bit on facebook is telling me that the S7 will display a moist USB port warning and refuse to charge if the port isn't dry, which is a sensible way of dealing with the lack of covers
