Premium metal chassis have long been associated with high-end smartphones. However, the trend is changing now. We see metal body options in smartphones now coming to even budget segment. LeEco has been amongst the first few to launch metal clad specs-heavy smartphones in the budget friendly segment. The company's flagship killer Le 1s dons has disrupted the market with a premium looking, all-metal body at a sustainable price of Rs 10,999.
Speaking of the design, the LeEco Le 1s is touted as a superphone that flaunts a "trendy full-metal body", which only few smartphone brands offer at this price point. The metal unibody is sturdy and is made from Aircraft grade aluminium. Furthermore, the Le 1s is a metal unibody phone featuring a screw less industrial design leaving no trace of the industrial assembling on the design. The phone looks stylish and is also a power-packed performer.
The use of metal in smartphones not only enhances the look and design of the phone but also ensures that heat generated by the phone's internals is dispersed quickly to the surroundings. Metal body aids in dispersing heat generated by the processor and internals which a plastic counterpart fails to some extent. Though the device might feel warmer to the touch during heavy usage, it is to note that this is normal and the device is functioning as it is designed to perform. The fact about metal phones is that it gets hot fast and cools down quickly as well. Furthermore, the metal design of the Le 1s strengthens signal receiving capability.
Here are a few tips to users to avoid heating up of their smartphone:
Compact size - Smartphones being small in size and given that they are multipurpose, with a heavy workload, the absence of a small fan or proper ventilation will cause the little processor to heat up in the extreme of cases. Also, as the battery tries to support more resources, heating up will be the outcome. Given that the battery is located near the processor, as the phone is designed to accommodate a lot of hardware in a small case, it leaves less space for ventilation which could be ideal for cooling the system as is for example the case is for laptops.
Excessive Gaming - While constantly playing games with heavy graphics, we put too much stress on the "mother board" of the smartphone and it pushes electronic inputs at a much faster rate. Playing a game requires a lot of resources from the phone and it represents the most obvious cause for overheating.
Heat dispersion - If your phone is already overheating, take your case off. If your phone is hot, your case traps the heat. Taking the case off will allow the phone's heat vents to do their job fully without being blocked. This will help your phone cool down quicker.
