Why the REDMAGIC Phone Cooling is the Best for Gamers

How does REDMAGIC 5S keep your phone from overheating?


In this age of awesome gaming smartphones, there is only one hurdle left, the fear of overheating. It is the only thing left that can cause your phone to stutter or become laggy. But for the REDMAGIC 5S, we got a trifecta of solutions all working together to blow the heat away.


Why Do Phones Overheat?

To run all that awesomely powerful tech that is crammed into a phone, it requires a fair bit of power, and where there is power, there is heat. The more demanding t, even more for that max performance and that all leads to more heat. In The REDMAGIC 5S, just like most phones, you will start to feel this build up of heat near the camera, because that is where the powerful Snapdragon 865 chipset is, getting warm as it powers through your games like juggernaut.


Why Should You Care about Overheating?

Well, besides the obvious lagging and general discomfort of holding a hot phone when it starts to overheat, it can also damage the phone if you’re not careful and in more ways than one. Overheating can lead to damage to the battery and hamper its performance, can cause data loss and even permanently slow the device down. Before any of this real damage happens though, you will start to notice issues from overheating as the phone slows down and starts to lag. Leading to a worse gaming experience and even costing you games.

How The REDMAGIC 5S Keeps Away The Heat

The new and enhanced ICE 4.0 active liquid-cooling with turbo fan cooling system is the first and key element of how the REDMAGIC 5S beats the heat. Using an L shaped liquid-cooling pipe, the major sources of heat are all covered and the heat is whisked away to the built-in turbo fan and then blown away. Additionally, we’ve added in advanced materials to enhance heat transfer and dissipation throughout the phone. As well as for the first time ever, using actual silver, one of the greatest thermally conductive metals, on the back of the phone.

“It can play demanding games without a stutter thanks to its fantastic cooling system…”

The Ultimate Cooling With The Ice Dock


The Ice Dock is the final piece in the REDMAGIC trinity cooling and with it, the ultimate cooling solution is complete. The Ice Dock is a powerful little cooling attachment that combines a high-power turbo fan with a refrigeration device. Ideally, it is positioned over the ICE Ag silver plate on the back of the phone, it works to cool off and dissipate heat away from the phone. In addition to cooling off the phone, the Ice Dock also unlocks the REDMAGIC 5S’s GPU Boost feature, increasing the phone’s performance significantly! Other fun, quality of life features that the Ice Dock brings to your gaming experience are a bottom facing headphone jack and how it can be used to charge your phone while cooling it. How cool is that?
