Mobile mining apps on play store? Did anybody tried it? Is it even worth it or not?
I tried minergate app and getting 8 h/s on bytecoin/xmr on my Motorola moto x. But the phone heats up and battery drain fast. Well I was just testing the app.

Somewhere I read Samsung s6 edge is giving 2m/h on scrypt algo? Is it even real?

I think, the mobile mining is not profitable. The mobile gpu and cpu unit is too low, and It will overburn your mobile. It is not a good idea. Sad

I think crypto mining on a phone is a good way to start a campfire...you'll also have to leave the phone plugged in.

Phone processors aren't tested at high temps for extensive periods of times. If they are nvidia unit's they're probably only tested from -38 to 140c

If you were to dismantle the phone and attach a heatsink/fan to the apu then maybe. Otherwise I give your phone a few days at most.

No, and I never tried it on my phone. According to my friends their phone is getting hotter when they mine btc using it. I am very cautious and hesitant to try, I might damage my mobile phone and lost more money than mining it.  Grin

Just like also laptop CPU mining, I will not recommend it. Its a waste of resources,time and effort.

Maybe next Bear Grylls episode will start with a campfire started with a smartphone used for mining  Wink
