Much has been said about Qualcomm’s 2015 flagship processor, the 64-bit Snapdragon 810 chipset. There were rumors that Samsung doesn’t want to use this generation of processors for its next flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S6 , due to overheating issues. The myth has been burst after all as the Snapdragon 810 was found to be way much cooler than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 801.
A firm known as STJS Gadgets Portal conducted a couple of tests to see how the processors fare in terms of heat and the result favored the Snapdragon 810 on both occasions, managing to maintain a temperature less than 40 degrees Celsius after 20 minutes of heavy gaming. The 810 was found at over 45 degrees at the same time range and under the same conditions.
The same happened when the processors were used in video recording. 350 minutes of recording sent the Snapdragon 801 at 43 degrees while the Snapdragon 810 slowly climbed to 30 degrees Celsius.
Now that the dice has been cast. We can confirm the Snapdragon 810 is not a problematic processor just as LG has said. The beat now sounds exactly like Samsung abandoned Qualcomm for the phone maker’s own Exynos just to maximize profit on the Galaxy S6 flagship, just like we’ve heard.
