820 is fast : that's a lie. 801 remains indisputable even 810 is a joke. snapdragon couldn't have jumped to 810

AnonD-425519, 12 Aug 2015The S810 is terrible! I have the M9 and it really heats up a lot... moreOh also, upon loading Gmail and Google Play Store. The S5's cold loading is a bit quicker than the M9, again, the S810 isn't very well optimized.

  • Guyrony

Why not optimize Snapdragon 810 first?

That's a more logical solution.

The S810 is terrible! I have the M9 and it really heats up a lot, I can't stand that, It's better with a case. But here's the weird thing, I also have an S5 and when I tried Angry Birds 2 on both phones, the S5 runs it smoother and it's running S801.. Weird. It doesn't feel as fluid even in Chaos Rings 3. So I'm wondering if something is wrong with S810's GPU.. No idea but I'll be selling the M9 =( great phone but has some weird issues like that, among others..

I hope S820 is better..

Anonymous, 12 Aug 2015More overheating problems? I guess so.Yes, buts that all you can do is guess, why??.....because becuase we've not seen this product in actual use yet!!!!!

So whilst your guessing away based on next to no actual information, the rest of us can get on with perhaps waiting to see how this SOC performs when it is.... you know released and tested and stuff like that

We need bigger/better batteries not faster CPU's !!! I dont have any intention of launching spaceships from my yard using my phone i just want a full 24h of heavy usage. Cheers

Anonymous, 12 Aug 2015More overheating problems? I guess so.Why would you guess so? This is a totally different chip to the 810 with Qualcomm's new custom CPU, there's absolutely no reason to think it'll also have overheating problems at this point.

Gees... talk about a load of freaking fanboys in these comments! Why is everyone on the case with overheating issues? Sure it happened with the 810. Hell it can happen with any company if they didnt do a proper job. Im sure they will release the 820 properly and take proper precautions not to mess this up cause if they do they will take a heavy knock financially. Common people chill with the fanboy stuff already. What are? Like 12 or something. Sheeeesh.

Snapdragon and Exynos need a single core boost...

Baby Bird, 12 Aug 2015> Devices based on Snapdragon 820 are expected to be availabl... moreIPC is only a rate. You have to multiply it by the clockspeed to get the total power.

Apple's IPC means nothing when their design prevents them from clocking high enough. In terms of total performance, the A8 is behind 2-year old snapdragon.

Qualcomm and Samsung could easily create cores that have high IPC. Just enlarge the cores.

Chinese users will probably shun SD820 for being "only" quad-core.

They didn't say anything about overheating issues

so now I can bake pork on it, right?

AnonD-428697, 12 Aug 2015Amazing... Hope phones with these come soon.. Havnt got any flag... moreExynos and Mediatek based phones are very fast. Only qualcom phones are junk, but yesteryear they were not speed deamons exactly either (Mediatek 6595 > Exynos 5430 > SD 801)...

fast, cool and hot?

Baby Bird, 12 Aug 2015> Devices based on Snapdragon 820 are expected to be availabl... moreDon't believe what you read from Apple fanboys site. IPC is only one aspect of processor performance.

It is the lightweight iOS that cause a slower processor seemingly faster.

It is just the same history repeating itself. Still remember old Apple computers'/laptops' processor? Remember how Apple & many fanboys kept bashing Intel & claim how superior theirs vs Intel. How about now? All Apple computers & laptops using Intel processors. Period

Galaxy s7 will have it. .
