i lost my trust in Snapdragon after these rumors were actually true. if it was not true then why they are making a new version of the same chip, admit it and get back to work.
Snapdragon is very overpriced, i think the flagship phone makers will now look towards Intel, mediatek for better processors

Its way cooler than other processors.

A... moreG4 is delayed becuase LG wants it to be delayed, they have released a formal statement which says they released G3 around May last year, so this year again the same time around would be good to release the next Flagship..hope you understand

We all are aware every high end phones heat .

But here samsung is propagating that they are switching to exynos bcoz SD is overheating . Because of this statement , it gave an impression SD810 is heating more than all previous Note/Galaxy series

Now HTC also releasing with SD810 . So only samsung have problem ? . I am sure samsung cant ignore SD as 70% of their high end phones are powered by SD.
In coming days they will tell " Problem with overheating of SD is now solved and we are using it for S6"

And people telling exynos is outperforming . Why most high end devices of HTC/SONY/LG/O+O,NEXUS/MOTO/ many more including 70% of samsung devices powered by SD ?

So other OEM are fools to ignore such a super high performing EXYNOZ CRAP with ZERO HEATING ???

The 5430 is manufactured on the 20nm process. The chip is not power hungry and does not overheat.

utilize heat dissipating copper tubes with ferro fluid in them and mount them on heat sink at the rear. That will take away heat effectively.

My iphone 4 and 5S overheated to almost 68deg C.
That's just multitasking. Not even gaming with high graphics.

  • AnonD-57516

The S4 Snapdragon 600 chip did overheat alot. The Note 3 Snapdragon 800 chip did overheat to a point where an egg could become sunnyside-up.
I am not surprised the Snapdragon 810 has heating issues.
My Galaxy Alpha using Exynos 5430 octa core not only did not overheat but was very power efficient.
My Note 4 uses the Snapdragon 805 and it is warm quite frequently. I wonder if it is because of over-clocking that resulted in overheating.

Okay, seems like it's worth avoiding the 810 for now.
Well, perhaps not - as long as you know what the risks are.

having owned a Galaxy S4 and S5. both running snapdragon cpu's they overheat. Fact granted 20 mins on Real Racing 3 is quite stressfull on a CPU. But still the yover heat. Common fault on Galaxy phones. You never see a Iphone over heat. reason why the software is optimized to run on a lower core speed. So if Samsung/LG can get there UI on top of Android, to run on say 2.0 ghz with no lag. Then the chipset wont over heat.

The words "quite satisfactory" hardly inspire great confidence. It almost suggests he knows the chip has been throttled and is using clever words to avoid actually saying it. As to whether it has actually been throttled I cannot say.

Dirty tactics from Samsung.
Again, again, and again,
Snapdragon is the King of Chipset in Mobile Devices !!!

not only the flex2 are going to use the snapdragon 810 to there is no reason to hide if its really does over heating .

LG, 22 Jan 2015Samsung just wanted to sell their cheap chipset . which is... moreI believe you - this is clearly Samsung making an excuse as to why they are going to use their own cheaper chips in their phones. North American / European customers expect QC chips but Samsung has empty factories and needs to keep them churning out Exynos chips.

Having said all that - I have no problem with their Exynos chips now that they have proper LTE support - the only concern I have is will the dev community get on board with Exynos for the S6 or will it be ignored and stuck on the factory ROM for much of its life??

Qualcomm should sue Samsung for making bad publicity.

Could it be the rumor made by certain malicious people/OEM ? We will find the answer after the review...

I feel like just once you put the phone face down hit it and it just snaps.
