    Galaxy S23 FE teardown reveals how it keeps the Exynos 2200 cool

    When Samsung revealed that it was powering the Galaxy S23 FE with a two-year-old Exynos processor, everyone was worried about the phone's performance and battery life. However, several reviews have shown that the Exynos 2200 chipset inside the Galaxy S23 FE performs better than it did in the Galaxy S22 Ultra, and there's a reason for that. A new teardown video shows how and why the Exynos 2200 inside the Galaxy S23 FE is performing better.

    Galaxy S23 FE has the biggest vapor chamber cooling system ever seen on Samsung phones

    It appears that Samsung has used a pretty beefy cooling system in the Galaxy S23 FE to keep the Exynos 2200 in control. A teardown video of the Galaxy S23 FE reveals that Samsung has equipped it with a pretty large vapor chamber cooling system to keep the thermals in check, which is why it doesn't throttle as much as it does in the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Since it doesn't throttle the clock speed, the chipset performs better than it does in the Galaxy S22 series.

    The phone has a glass back, which is glued to the metal frame of the Galaxy S23 FE. Since it has an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance, you can see that all the openings and cutouts are sealed with rubber and glue. The video reveals that you can easily replace camera lens covers by gently applying heat and prying them off, and then you can fit newer lenses. You don't need to remove the entire back panel to replace camera lenses.

    There are 20 Philips screws that need to be unscrewed before the back plate of the phone can be removed. After removing some ribbon connectors, charging coil, and NFC antenna, you can remove the battery easily using the pull tab. There are a few graphite pads to help transfer the heat generated by RAM and the chipset. All the main components, including the chipset, RAM, storage, sensors, and cameras, are attached to the main board. The phone received a repairability score of 8.5/10.
