THE COOLEST SMART­PHONE

Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS -

The Galaxy S7’s unique cool­ing sys­tem, also known as ‘own per­sonal air con­di­tion­ing’, al­lows un­in­ter­rupted us­age even when run­ning in­ten­sive ap­pli­ca­tions.

Un­like the con­ven­tional sys­tems be­fore it, Sam­sung has suc­ceeded in cre­at­ing a su­per-thin cool­ing ap­pa­ra­tus (0.6mm) for the pow­er­ful Exynos pro­ces­sor in the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. A vari­a­tion of the desk­top water-cool­ing model, the cool­ing tech­nol­ogy at play in th­ese smart­phones keeps vi­tal com­po­nents like the pro­ces­sor work­ing at op­ti­mum tem­per­a­ture, greatly ex­tend­ing the lifes­pan and al­low­ing for longer un­in­ter­rupted us­age. Un­der the stun­ning metal shell of the S7 is flat cop­per pip­ing that weaves around the Graph­ics Pro­cess­ing Unit and the pro­ces­sor to dis­si­pate the heat gen­er­ated by the phone. The pip­ing en­sures that the heat is evenly spread and not con­cen­trated in any spe­cific spots. Loosely de­scribed as ‘air con­di­tion­ing for your phone', the pip­ing has a liq­uid that va­por­ises at high tem­per­a­tures and then con­denses at low tem­per­a­tures. The liq­uid draws heat from the pro­ces­sor when va­por­ised and re­peats the cy­cle over and over again, con­vert­ing from va­por to liq­uid and vice versa de­pend­ing on which com­po­nent is hot­ter than the rest.

Face­book de­nied al­le­ga­tions that it reg­u­larly sur­presses po­lit­i­cally con­ser­va­tive news sto­ries. The so­cial net­work came un­der fire when for­mer Face­book staffers were quoted in a re­port that said the site “rou­tinely” cen­sors right-wing con­tent – in­clud­ing sto­ries about the CPAC gath­er­ing, Mitt Rom­ney, Rand Paul, and more – from ap­pear­ing in its “trend­ing” news sec­tion. In re­sponse, Face­book's VP of Search Tom Stocky, who leads the team re­spon­si­ble for trend­ing top­ics, said there is “no ev­i­dence that the anony­mous al­le­ga­tions are true.”
