    Unfortunately, the Red Magic doesn't meet my minimum requirements for a phone, because it doesn't have a MicroSD slot. I guess it doesn't matter anyway though, because I do not ever play games on my phone. I don't like mobile gaming, or gaming with touch screens, or anything other than standard controllers. If I want to game on the go I'll bring my Switch.

    To be fair, the S10 has a glass back. Not the best thermal conductor. If that cooler was on the cpu, like the magic, it might work better.

    Maybe I'm jut getting old or something - but who are these people that play "serious" games on their phones? I just don't get why anyone would choose that, but clearly there has to be some market for it ...?

    Oh forgot to add, Minecraft! Here's are reasons as to why some westeners hate mobile games. Unlike PC games you can't install mods and the fps is capped at 60fps for reasons who knows. Ads, mostly click baits, and way WAY too addicting but, if we take those off, the other reasons would be. Doesn't know what finger claw is, can't see that well, jittery hands, can't reach the top because their fingers are too short. Can't do tricks like 360s, blind shots, etc because they lack the skill and flexibility, assholic developers, still unknown to the western area and lastly, they basically don't know how to tell a good game from a bad game. Why? Probably because they only play games that are trending online and not those under the radar awesome games.

    Idk why people are aguing on mobile games. Like some insulting mobile gamers and some defending it. Maybe it's because they don't know what game to pick knowing that they're basically noobs in this department or they don't know how to do fingergymnastics. Who knows? I play on both platforms though, PC and Mobile and I have fun playing at a pretty competative manner. The games I play on PC are Apex Legends, R.O.S, Cross Fire, Dota2 and L.O.L (Back in 2015.) And these are the games I play on mobile -PUBGM -CODM -ML -Vainglory Do be downloaded-Black Desert -Genshin Impact Lastly that new game comming out later with probably the best graphics seen on a mobile game. It was something about a Viking in an RPG game or something. Idk, just saw it and I'm waiting for it.

    The problem with the TEC cooler is the back of the S10+ is glass. You could see the TEC was very cold while the phone was hot. That means the heat couldn't make it to the TEC.

    I got this cooling device from online for 674 pesos or equivalent to something like 14$ called DL-88 by a company named memo and it works pretty well on my device. I mean it has a major difference between using the cooling device and not using the cooling device (when I'm putting my game settings on high frame rates and high graphics my mobile device(huawei nova 5t) it dimms the brightness of my display and I could actually feel the heat the burning sensation in my plams as I play. But when I'm using the cooling device it actually helps my display doesn't dimms and my phone doesn't feel that hot anymore.
