thecalmcritic, 26 Aug 2014Thing is. it centers around the term "octa" in this leak and last I checked the 410 ... moreThe Snapdragon 615 chipset isn't that great. It's actually using a low end core design. Think of the 615 as something comparable to Apple's A7 chips used on the iPhone 5S. The Snapdragon 808/810 is supposed to compare to the Apple A8, but they are having problems even getting working samples, so next year there might not be anything better than what they currently have as the 808/810 was going to be faster than their current 805, 801, 800 processors which are 32BIt application processors.

people are so used to addition they should know that a 64bit 615 chip is like a 32bit 1230 chip. but i think there's something else coming with this phone. We'll just have to wait and see come September 4.

That being said, I know this is supposed to be a midranger being HTC Desire 8xx line but I truly hope that 820 won't be marred by 8Gb starting internal storage (and mind you we're not even talking about the actual free size left) and sub optimal batt capacity. A waste of aarch64 future proofing if you ask me if the 2 happens. Not much HD games can be put into an 8 gigger and we can't force all to root and mod to move stuff from the internal storage to micro SD. 16Gb instead is a good minimum.

You need to wake up from your self induced coma and realize that 64 bit Windows 7 blows away a 32 bit xp and not by a small margin. It is substantially faster doing everything, copying files, editing videos, drawing with autocad, using Photoshop etc... God help those poor people you work for, you probably have them running Windows 3.1.
That's fantastic, cause there are so many killer apps that use Apple's 64 bit chip to create all kinds of awesomeness. Like texting, making phone calls, and browsing the web. Seriously do they even have 1 app that takes advantage of the 64 bit chip? Its been over a year and the last time it was even mentioned was at last year's unvailing.
So why does android or any other mobile os need a 64 bit chip?

The Best HTC phone I have ever bought was the HTC surround, which was a windows Phone 7. That phone was solid. The Nexus one sucked. That phone made me never want to buy another HTC phone again. But, the new HTC phones look Solid. HTC sense was always a turn off but now they have Google play editions.
snapdragon 610 or 615 still not high end model, i can say it's not real snapdragon 600 successor. the key is the GPU it use adreno 405. it is not succssor of adreno 320 or 330 class but only a 305/306 class.
snapdragon naming is likely to deceive their customer. stay smart gadget fellas
tobateksingh96, 25 Aug 2014Since Desire 820 is going to be a midranger. It's probably going to come with Snapdragon 410. ... more610 is no way high end,exactly midrange
even 805 is almost high end,
after that there would be 808 & finally 810 are high ends.
you can find all the detalis on Qualcomm official site:
Since Desire 820 is going to be a midranger. It's probably going to come with Snapdragon 410. Not 615, as that's a bit-high end SoC.

They were all about quality, from their cameras to build quality. They let Samsung come in and take the majority of their customers and dominate the market. Maybe this will be what they need to come back stronger and win back their customers from Samsung. Time will tell. Without a good camera, removable battery and expandable memory, however, the chances of that happening is very slim.
lets hope its gonna be their first truly amazin camera.cuz their software is ace n hardware too but their camera is not
ab, 25 Aug 2014What's the point? AFAIK, Android L won't be the first 64bit Android ... so it's presumably so... moreAs far as you know? Why, that's just it, you're assuming. I saw Google's press conference, and they mentioned the next iteration of Android supporting 64-bit, which should be Android L. Just because the alpha/beta developer build of it doesn't support 64-bit, doesn't mean the official, unnamed version of it won't.
What's the point? AFAIK, Android L won't be the first 64bit Android ... so it's presumably some way off. I know the A53 is a big improvement on the A7 in terms of performance per watt, but the 64bit means nothing to Android itself for the forseeable future, and nothing ever to most apps (since they live in a Java VM).
This means rather more to Ubuntu & Sailfish (since both are multitasking heavy and could conceivably use 4GB or more of RAM).

I think 810 will be ready by q1/q2 2015 as i read in some articles.
They claim to be first by they are always behind the competition and loosing money every quarter.
HTC phones are good around 2 months, then problems begin.
GSMArena, let's not forget that the Snapdragon 810 processor is also a 64-bit processor that has eight cores, so it could very well be the 810, which is what I'd prefer.
UK, 25 Aug 2014I'm not the most tech savvy person, but changing from x86 to x64 will only cause problems for ... moreBasically, because apps are written in Java, they will work on 64bit without a problem. You always hear Java is slower then some other alternative: that's why, because it actually runs everywhere.
And yes, a small portion of apps that use native code may need to update, but that won't be the norm.
