RyanP, 15 Jun 2015Part of this is due to the ridiculous marketing requirements in the Android mobile space. Thes... moreIPhone 6 uses dual-core and millions of people are buying it ..next time make your point right
Samsung have learned,plus ur have an advantage if ur not focusing in one business ps: samsung have many branches of business try google it
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2015That is a nice don't rock the boat headline - "...falling short... ". Gee. How about... moreBecause that would imply sort of moral judgement. This is a news site, and when you're reporting news, you're supposed to take a neutral view and just report the facts. Let the readers make up their own minds.
Part of this is due to the ridiculous marketing requirements in the Android mobile space. These days, you can't really release a flagship Android device with anything less than a quad core chip, because the public doesn't know anything about CPUs, and they think "quad core" is automatically better than "dual core," even if in fact the dual cores have faster single-thread performance.
As a result, Qualcomm basically had to make the 810 a quad core, but it seems the A57 is just too powerful to stick 4 of them on an SoC at 20nm and expect it to remain under thermal constraints.
Having said that, it's still Qualcomm's fault for not having other alternatives ready. They should've known that the 810 was running hot. I really think it would've been better for them to market an 806 as their top-tier choice this year, and make it an 805 built on 20nm instead of 28. If that had been possible (and I think they could have done it), it's hard to believe it wouldn't perform better and cooler than the 810.
What do you expect when their brand shows a fire breathing dragon placed near its logo (pun intended)?? On a serious note I feel they rushed 810 after apple announced a 64-Bit chipset. I feel Snapdragon 820 might be the chipset which 810 should have been. Lets wait for it.
"On the other hand, the consequences it entails could dramatically reshape the mobile world for years to come."
...who wrote this? Seriously, try something less dramatic, this is not IGN or some other site for 13 year olds.
Qualcomm should put its focus now on the 820 and 818 chipset. For what ever it is...the 810 seem to have a bad rap despite the adjustments they have made on it and it is costing them money and reputation.
No surprise at all. Qualcomm's 810 is the failure of the year. The 805 was much better. How can you release such crap - didn't they know about those issues?
I have been using my note 4 N910G for 5 months and i just face the heating problem once a day with heavy usage of music and 4G browsing.....And still performs good....as said by others you just need know to use it....
KuyaTokiTokyTalks, 15 Jun 2015goodbye snapdragon, hello Exynos, 7422;30 and beyond!Dont think anyone else other than Samsung use Exynos.
Probably all premium android flagships end up using qualcomm even the issue is there.
So what will happen if Samsung won't licence it's Exynos to other companies and Qualcomm can't manage to fix the heat problem with it's SD 820?
All companies who don't have any own cpu's are fucked up then I guess. I don't think that HTC, LG or Sony will use Mediatek, Intel or nVidia SoC's then.
Have an HTC M9, device lasts for two days with fair to medium usage, device never heats up at all ? Personally don't care what these so called market statistics come up with, the proof for me is in the usage and how i feel about it after i've tried it and tested it.
And to be fair to Qualcomm, I have never had a phone which remained cool through usage, ie: Light gaming, they all heat up.
I'm more than happy with my phone, it lasts, is quick and looks good with great sound and contrary to what people say, the camera on the m9 is superb, you just need to know how to use it.
