AnTuTu’s Q1 2015 performance report lists the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge as the two fastest smartphones, while Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 performs questionably.
The decision to use its own Exynos SoC and not Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 in the Galaxy S6 has generated a lot of fuss. What is Samsung up to? Is it the right move? What impact is it going to have on the mobile market?
A source from Korea and a new GFXBench listing suggest than LG will drop the Snapdragon 810 and opt for a Snapdragon 808 in the LG G4.
According to a new report, the HTC One M9 is experiencing significant overheating issues. However, there are a few variables we need to think about before making any assumptions.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 has been plagued by overheating rumors. AnandTech has put the SoC through a series of benchmarks to assess the 810’s real performance.
LG, Microsoft, Motorola, OPPO, Sony and Xiaomi have issued a joint press release with Qualcomm to praise the allegedly troubled Snapdragon 810 SoC.
In an earnings conference, LG admitted that they had seen some issues with the initial batches of Snapdragon 810 chips but had since worked out all the issues with Qualcomm. Furthermore, LG says that the G Flex 2 and LG G4 won’t be affected by the 810’s alleged problems.
While Qualcomm didn’t directly say Samsung isn’t using the Snapdragon 810 in its next-gen flagship, they did reveal that they are adjusting revenue expectations for the second half of the year due to the fact that a “large customer” has elected not to use Qualcomm’s latest chip in their flagship device.
Report say Qualcomm is scrambling to modify the Snapdragon 810, with a “fixed” version to be presented to Samsung in March. LG and other clients may not be too happy about it.
LG’s vice president has stated that the G Flex 2’s performance is “satisfactory” and that there isn’t an issue with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC overheating.
