Some phones are great to take camping because if you play Asphalt 8 long enough, the back warms up to the ideal temperature that can bake bread. Rate this thread to express the extent to which the OnePlus 5T stays cool under extended heavy use. A higher rating indicates that even when playing strenuous games for long periods of time, the phone doesn't get uncomfortably warm.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

The only time it ever got warm was when I was charging it above 60% while playing a game otherwise it never even warms up.

I just tested mine out with a collection of Google Cardboard apps. While my last phone (LG G3 F460, SnapDragon 805) would heat up to an alarming degree and start throttling after about 15 minutes of any Cardboard app, I played for about an hour with my 5T and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't any warmer than when I put it into the headset! This impressed me and got me excited about Cardboard and Google VR again, which I was skeptical about with my last phone.

1080p 60fps video after about half an hour got the phone a bit hot, was in the hard case that came with the phone however. But it was still able to record. CPU was around 55c

Only on rare occasions like playing GPU intensive games or while decoding and encoding videos does it get slightly warm. It is the coolest phone I have ever used till now. I am overwhelmed!

This is exactly what baffles me. The phenomenon when you are able to pump about 4 amperes of current without its side effect of getting heated is actually something like "abra ka dabra" & "hocus focus" of the magical world! I am still intrigued by its quick yet cool "DASH" charging feature.

I think they designed the dash charging plugs to take all the heat for the phone. It's a pretty clever trick.
