I am from Pakistan and that's what I said, we only get the Snapdragon variant in Pakistan. Exynos version isn't available here. Agreed that the E version is superior than SD, but I don't have any other choice now!
What's your recommendation now? Thanks!
Feel is good. Really like it. Bought two pieces. Had an issue with rear camera after few days, blurry image. Got a new piece as a replacement in one day ( they replace with a new one if found faulty in 15 day of purchase).
No side edges happy to have this cell look like its s6 edge plus :)
Feeling happy by having this cell in Exynose verson battery backup with wiffi and screen on if 5 hours something plus no heating no lagging its S6 and note 5 in A8 plus battery is better than s6 and note 5 happy to have this only buy Exynose version

AnonD-429807, 21 Nov 2015People like you need to stop making perception that all snapdragon processors "heat" a lot and... moreI can surely comment on this simply because I have used phone with a Snapdragon 615 processor.
I personally had htc desire 826 which heated a lot and more over used to suck up entire battery within 4 hours or so.
Talking about heating issue, various pother phones with snapdragon 615 had the same issue eg.Xiaomi Mi4C, Htc desire 820, Yu Yureka,etc. all had same heating issues.
Well, you boasted about 28nm chip fabrication found in SD 615. For your information, Exynos 5430 has 20nm !!!
You already had mentioned in the post about SD 615 being way too inferior than Exynos variant thus supporting my view of not to buy A8 SD 615 variant.
Regarding heating or battery issues of Snapdragon 615, I wish you use one and have SO MUCH FUN !

Then they replaced the main board of my phone.
This is less than 2 months send the phone to service centre.
I hope the new main board really solves the problem and no need to return to service center.
Waste of time going there and send a new phone for repair.
The feelings that my new phone is already repaired is disturbing and thinking that you pay higher price to get A8 phone.
