Those people who rant about 617 overheating are clueless trolls. They have no idea what their talking about.
Snapdragon 616 was basically a 615 v2.0 that fixed the minor heating issue that 615 faced. 616 is MSM8939v2 while 615 is MSM8939.
People also don't know the concept of overheating. Overheating results in CPU clock speed throttling and lag, along with decrease in performance. Only the 810 had these issues, which some manufacturers like Sony, Huawei and Microsoft managed to resolve. Early batch of 810 phones have all the symptoms given above.
None of the 615 equipped phones had any issues which the 810 faced. Also, overheating phones give a warning message and shut down automatically.
So those who complain about so-called overheating issues of 617, go learn facts and have some proper knowledge, before coming and spreading nonsense here
Pakalni, 23 May 2016Dimensions: 153 x 76.6 x 9.8 mm 9.8 mm is a brick these days. :- D HELL NO TO THIS DEVICE.That's actually the camera bump. The rest is 7.89 mm.
AnonD-496754, 23 May 2016Whatever.. SD 650 will kill SD 617 in Real time performance..Not really true.
I've seen Moto G 3rd gen phones having smoother UI than Xperia M4. Despite the weaker processor.
It all comes down to optimization
For all those people who are crying that sd650 is better than 617, should know that phone's OS optimization is also a thing. RN3 will probably stuck and settle with marshmallow, but Moto G4 would go with N and O.

AnonD-540638, 23 May 2016Which one has better signal reception in low network signal condition? Moto g4 plus or Redmi N... moreI am using Redmi note 3 32gb variant from past 15 days and trust me its one of the best phone I have ever used. Good signal recipient, very good call quality, Faster internet (supports volte) Good battery back (last for 2 days for normal usage), No lags, Good performance and overall good budget phone for 12k. Blindly go for it and grab it on Wednesdays 2pm sale on Amazon.
SD 617 is a failure. I am observing heating issues for even normal usage but I hope that Lenovo/Moto release updates to curb these excess heating issues
Which one has better signal reception in low network signal condition? Moto g4 plus or Redmi Note 3? Feature wise RN3 looks complete in all sense barring a hybrid sim slot. Moto g4 plus is readily available whereas buying RN3 during flash sale is like booking a Tatkal ticket on IRCTC site...Can someone guide about the signal reception of these two phones, I need to buy one within this week...!
Sumit, 23 May 2016It doesn't matter if its named as SD 618 aka SD 650. But the point is Redmi note 3 doesn't hea... morewe have seen that rn3 had got some updates. by means of these updates, the performance and other issues had been fixed. wait till moto g plus get updates then compare. snapdragon 650 is definitely faster than 617 but we need good performance on the phone.
According to Motorola's website this model is only offered in 16 gb with 2gb of ram and in a 64gb / 4 gb ram options

2. Why is Oneplus better?
3. Come on, it's gonna be like $300! What can you want beside the SD650?
Even though 617 isNewer processor doesn't mean that it will cross sd650 in any departement.sd650 is just a more powerful processor in every departement.and seeing these capabilities of the processor sd650 and that too without heating Snapdragon renamed it from sd618 to 650 and from 620 to 652 so that people can differentiate the capabilities of processors sd650,sd652 are higher midrange processors which can be seen in many 30k devices .

Both 650 and 617 are 28nm chipsets.
