well they can now claim that device doesn't heat at all if synapses 820 doesn't heat
Maybe the heat pipe is useful in a device with a plastic or glass back. In the end, it didn't seem like it did that much in the Xperia devices. To me this sort of design, without the attached heat sink and fan, like in laptops, doesn't make that much sense. How much can it really do?
People should look at AnandTech's review of the Nexus 6P that just came out. They said by far in their testing (and no one does as technical and careful tests as them) the 6P does the best job dissipating the heat from the 810 chipset. The 6P does this by using a little thermal paste for good heat conductivity off of the chipset and then using the aluminum unibody as a giant heatsink.
So as the end of the day, the heat pipe, I think, is not a magical solution to this problem. There are better designs. And of course, hopefull the 820 will be more thermally efficient anyway.

To anyone saying this is copying.
No, it's employing a hardware cooling technique used for ages. Only the sort of dimwit that thinks Apple's 'rectangle with round corners' is a valid patent would think this is "copying"...

AnonD-411799, 22 Dec 2015were does it take away? will we be seeing the vents too then?spreads trough the body, so dissipates heat better.
Passive cooling only.
Also people please don't say that Lumia 950 use watercooling, vapor chamber/phase change cooling systems aren't the same as watercooling.
Watercooling forces the water to flow, phase change systems rely on convection alone.
Granted this is just a conceptual difference, but still this is the case.

Anonymous, 22 Dec 2015#@$% is getting weird with these Qualcomm smartphones..Lets get an iPhone instead..No thanks. I'd like to actually do stuff with my processing power not be locked in the iJail.
Some people say they want water-cooled devices, so...I'll say I want an intercooler device! :P

This is known as passive cooling. This is nothing new, and should substantially increase the cooling capability of the chipset.
It would still need a quite large surface area to dissipate that heat. They might as well use aluminum materials for the majority of the device for cooling.
