Smaller nodes with the same transistors = faster, more power efficient. The S6 is known to get hot, too. I read a review on it somewhere, probably here, where it got too hot to touch after playing a game on it after an extended period of time, but it didn't affect the performance at all.
ljames13, 23 Mar 2015that sounds rather inefficient, doesn't it?Indeed, very. Qualcomm is the one to blame here, not HTC. Qualcomm rushed the incomplete, scorching hot SoC. Avoid devices with the 810 like the plague.

I know they're different SoC, but their CPU cores are the exactly the same.

how does the m9, with a bigger battery and lower resolution, still have a worse battery life than the s6?
This is not a bad device, but I will be holding off on getting a phone till one comes equipped with the Snapdragon 815, hopefully the G4.
2800 mAH battery with 1080p resolution and worse battery life than 2550 mAH 1440p resolution S6?
Will read the full review tomorrow, thanks for posting it as always.
But just saw the camera section, and I am surprised to see that its mentioned that the camera images are better than Xperia Z3? LOL, if that's true (and there's no reason to disbelief GSMA anyway) then that's a HUGE achievement.
PS: Just looking at the last low light sample, man, it looks like shite!
