So I noticed something strange.
We all know the camera on the Exynos version causes a significant load on the CPU. 10 minutes use of the camera (esp. using 108mp and portrait modes) had my device at 44-45o. I then closed the camera app and waited around 5 minutes but the CPU kept at ~41o with spikes of heavy use even with the camera app being closed for a while.
I then ran 3Dmark where I would usually get 5300 and it scored 3300. Another run after a couple more minutes acheived about the same result. This means that the workload the camera puts on the CPU throttles it so much that it is kept throttled for a very long duration of time. Probably even after the CPU cools down.
Extremely strange and frustrating.
I wonder if there's a way to bypass the CPU throttling.
Interesting. Could you please let me know how hot your CPU gets after 10 minutes or so of camera use (heavy modes - 108mp and portrait)? Also, if you have 3DMark, can you run it immediately after using the camera?
I see. Would be interesting to see what the actual CPU temperature is. More interesting is the 1st unit I got was extremely hot when using the camera. This second one is just mildly hot but enough to impact the performance of the phone in demanding situations (gaming). Also - is your camera laggy (not all physical movements translate immediately to the screen)?
