RayenX, 14 Sep 2015So I'm one of the disappointed Customers that been waiting for normal sized Nexus... Now when ... moreWhy don't you study the product itself and research on product reviews rather than the chipset itself?
1) All chips overheats. How long it overheats depends on how OEMs apply their firmware algorithms and hardware to it.
Apparently, v1 of QSD810 overheats easily on previous flagships specs.
2) Each OEM has their own way and design on how to operate the chipset.
So, to compare QSD810 v2 performance against all existing devices would net different results
3) To learn how OEMs use/operate QSD810 v2, watch the PRODUCT reviews themselves.
Most 3rd party and independent reviewers are as honest as they could get. They will include the device's operating temperatures as well.
Since it's time for a new Nexus, what other choice did they have? At the moment, the latest SoC they could use is 810.
AppleFanBoy22, 15 Sep 2015There is nothing wrong with the snapdragon 810 v2.1
I have recently bought a Oneplus 2, and... moreThere reason your OnePlus 2 doesn't overheat is because OnePlus downclocked the CPU to 1.8 Ghz to prevent the problem. GSMArena points this out in their review. So yes there is nothing "wrong" with the 810 in your OnePlus 2, in the sense that it won't overheat. But what is wrong with it is that in order to prevent overheating they have hobbled the CPU and made it slower than lesser Snapdragon chipsets, like the 801 and 805 (as I explain in another comment).
As far as the Nexus goes, people should also keep in mind that a chipset is not just the CPU. Even if you don't care that the 810 is slower than processors that came before it and that were not meant to be as good, even if you don't care that the 820 will just crush the 810 in terms of CPU power, there are many other benefits to the 820.
The 820 has all the up to date LTE and wifi radios. It's better optimized to handle the most powerful camera modules in today's flagship phones. It will use 40% (!) less power, so you'll get better battery life. It is designed to work better with wifi calling. It has a more powerful GPU for those who are into gaming. And there will be many many other benefits. GSMArena has a story on it today.
I just can't understand Google releasing a supposedly flagship phone with a chipset that's already outdated the moment the phone comes. Especially since the Nexus is supposed to showcase all the new things Android can do. It can't be a showcase if it doesn't even have an up to date chipset to show off with. Maybe if it were halfway through the life of the 810 and the 820 were still six months away, it would be one thing. But by the time the first people get their hands on the Nexus phones, there will already by phones with the 820 announced. Google really should line up the release of new Nexus phones with the release of new chipsets better.
It used to be, as I said below, that the Nexus phones always had the latest chipset. Now Google's just being cheap and using year old technology (which also happens, in the case of the 810, to have some serious design flaws).
Paula, 15 Sep 2015Am I the only one here who is excited because it has 810 :))yes

I have recently bought a Oneplus 2, and after heavy usage I have experienced no extreme overheating - intact my old iPhone 5s ran warmer while gaming.
Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 can still run the heaviest apps and games. There is no rush for new phones, I think Google should wait until 820 became ready. I won't buy a 810!

Anonymous, 15 Sep 2015810 is fine. You won't see a difference between 820 and 810. It's ridiculous fast already.Actually, ArsTechnica did an elaborate technical analysis and test of the 810 and showed that it's slower than the lesser 801 and 805. Because of it's overheating problems, the 810 has to heavily throttle itself. So there will be a big difference from the 820.
More importantly, the 810 is really a badly designed chipset. It was a rush response to Apple, when they released their first 64 bit chip. Qualcomm didn't want to be the only one with no 64 bit chipset on the market for more than a year after Apple, so instead of custom designing the cores for the 810 as they normally do, they used "off the shelf" cores that didn't really work right in the overall 810 chipset and that created the overheating problem.
Who wants a phone with a deliberately badly designed processor?
With the 820 Qualcomm returns to their usual design process and uses their own custom cores. So it will really be the first true 64 bit chipset from Qualcomm (and hopefully should have no problems).
The only reason Google is still using the 810 after all of it's known problems (and this is true of the OnePlus 2 also) is because it's cheap and no manufacturer wants it anymore. It lets them keep the price down on phones that don't sell for the full flagship price.
Hopefully the 810 leak will be in accurate. But if it's true that's bad. Even without the overheating and throttling problems, it's already last year's chipset. Who wants a brand new, flagship phone with year old technology? Google used to do better. The first Nexus phones had the latest and best chipsets. Now they're just getting cheap.

Are they gonna ship it with some facelift kit because this ugly mid-range design from 5 years ago can hurt someones eyes you know. 😂
Rk, 14 Sep 2015It should be with Snapdragon 820 and must have 4GB of RAM. Providing latest Android (6) is not... more1) Consumers like you is NEVER satisfied with what is currently offered. You should wait for a better product
2) SD820 is only released in 2016
3) The NEXUS line was NEVER intended for mainstream customers. Its purpose was intended for Developers. Google only commercialized the product line given its stability and popularity with the masses.
Dont get your hopes up on a product which you don't even study if it fits your lifestyle.
I think only reason they are using it is probably Qualcomm is trying to get rid of it's 810 stocks to make way for 820.
The design doesn't look like it is copied from other other brands.
No wonder it is s ugly.
