I dont care of 2.5 and 2.3 ghz. I think i'm going to get a xperia z2 or galaxy s5 in May. And frankly i'm just going to underclock it to 1.8ghz to save battery.

Smart man :P with that 3200mAh of Z2, underclocking will get you super long battery life

Sadly it may not work as expected for two reasons:
If you underclock your phone it will take more time to finish tasks, so the screen and other elements will be on more time too (and screen takes a lot more battery than the CPU)
In order to save battery you have to uderclock not only the turbo frequency (the max frequency Qualcomm markets) but also all the base frequencies (I´m not sure if that can be done or not) Underclocking the turbo will hardly save any battery.

Nowadays, CPUs are so powerful that 99% of the time they will be operating at the lowest frequency (idling). If you want to better battery life, your best bet is to downclock the idle setting and/or undervolt it. Underclocking the maximum setting will increase battery life slightly when you have random spikes of CPU increases but if you're constantly utilizing it (such as encoding), as stated above, it will take longer and the battery life difference will be minimal as you'll be taking longer to complete the task.

Also you can also undervolt, which quite significantly reduces the heat and also saves battery

Please stop noobin' up the place trying to sound like you know what you're talking about.

So, S800 guys are not getting left in the dust really.
A nice upgrade, but not a leap.

Not even, this was more an upgrade for the uncore elements of the processor and that is very important. We can keep getting generic speed upgrades forever but specialized performance boosts will be much more useful at this point. It has to be done and now is better than later because right now the processor and gpu are power enough but the uncore elements are holding everything back.

totally agree.. but we'll just wait till S805 comes out.. lets see how much of an upgrade that will bring..

im going to wait for htc one m8, then im going to decide, but mostly im going for GS5 electric blue

All white for me unless Samsung's announcement is the F/P series
5. PapaSmurf (Posts: 8093; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Waiting to see what processor is inside the All New HTC One.
9. ArtSim98 (Posts: 2684; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)
I think it's gonna be the same as in the Z2.
7. Achilis (Posts: 32; Member since: 05 Oct 2013)
Not a Major upgrade for those who already owns S800. Upcoming S805 will be a worthy successor.
8. AfterShock (Posts: 2798; Member since: 02 Nov 2012)
Another thought on this, kind of sad to see that 5S fall to the slower of the two dragons.
I would guess that's got to suck for a supposedly premium phone as it's bandied about.
The 805 will kill it.

Meh... But wait till apple introduces the new A64s chip,

hey phonearena...in your post :
Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 801 can be found in handsets and tablets like the Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet, Vivo Xplay 3S, or the Oppo Find 7.
does the vivo xplay 3s relly have a 801?? bcoz evrywhr else its mentioned 800
