Device Compatibility Thread- Built By Us For You!


iOS devices are less efficient at cooling, and iOS prefers performance over cooling. Unlike Samsung, and some other android manufacturers which bias towards throttling to protect the hardware, Apple will allow the phone to heat up to the point where it shuts itself down… 🤷


I use OnePlus 6T too


Okay thank you :)


…please show me an instance where the phone shut down because of it’s own heat.
I have never heard of ANYONE having that issue.
I don’t deny that iOS devices get hot, but I’ve never heard of it getting to the point where it shuts down.
@Coolman do you happen to have a thick case?


This is not uncommon with iPhones. I have seen istances where even the iPhone X got so hot that the owner could barely hold it and in the end, some of the hardware was damaged. Shutting down because of its own heat is not very rare. I will link an example below. The part with the damage to the hardware is pretty rare, but it can still happen.

I have seen users reporting this here on the forum too. What Kirito is saying is true.


Huh, ok. I’m surprised I’ve never heard of that.
Is it only really a problem with the X?


I have an iPhone XR and have not had an overheating issue, even while charging. But that might because it is a bit newer


I have seen reports about older iPhones too. The newer ones (XS, XS Max) have a better cooling system than the previous models, but it can still happen.


Anyone have recommendations on the Tab S4? I’m looking for a tablet for under 600 EUR


From what I’ve heard, the Samsung Tab S4 is an excellent performer. Lots of power, a very vibrant touchscreen and precise controls. If it’s within your budget, I’d definitely recommend it!


Could it do all high with anti aliasing on?


Of course. The tab S3 still manages this, and the Tab S4 is a brand new device


Upgraded from S3 to S4 and it really burns.


Like good or like overheats?


The Graphics are better than the S3.


Would you rather recommend the XR + Apple Watch + Tab S4 (right now I have an iPad 6th gen and iPhone SE), or XS Max + Apple Watch? I mean the second is cheaper, but I could use a tablet upgrade, but that comes with the process of switching from iOS to Android 🙁


Well… To be fair if you have the money and are truly set on having an iPhone, I would ditch the Apple watch, get the XS (or if you really have to get the max) and then also get the tab S4… The money you save on the Apple watch would allow you to upgrade from the god awful XR

It’s your choice at the end of the day 😉


What’s so bad about it?


And I’m not truly set on having an iPhone, just in this list it says the Note 9 can throttle a lot, and I mean what do you think about the ROG phone and a Tab s4?


I would like an Apple Watch, but if I can get a really good phone that’s just as good.
