Snapdragon 820 SoC rumored to have overheating issues just like the Snapdragon 810 chipset

Snapdragon 820 SoC rumored to have overheating issues just like the Snapdragon 810 chipset
Once talk about the overheating Snapdragon 810 SoC started to go viral, the reports were met by comments from some phone buyers that they were going to wait until the release of the Snapdragon 820 before buying their next handset. If a tweet from tipster Ricciolo is legit, you might want to wait for the appearance of the Snapdragon 830 before spending your hard earned money on a new phone.

The tweet disseminated by Ricciolo today states that the Snapdragon 810 chipset and its successor (the Snapdragon 820) are "not so different in terms of HEAT issues." The tipster, who refers to himself as a Technology Secret Agent, suggests that phone buyers hold out for the launch of the Snapdragon 830. The latter won't be available until the third quarter of 2016.

According to Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang, Qualcomm will start shipping the Snapdragon 820 SoC in December of this year. The first phone to employ it, according to the analyst, will be the Xiaomi Mi 5 Plus.

The Snapdragon 820 features new 64-bit cores home grown by Qualcomm. These four Kyro cores have a maximum clock speed of 3GHz.

Ricciolo hasn't posted any evidence that backs up his comments, and there is no anecdotal evidence that suggests that the Snapdragon 820 overheats. For now, we recommend taking his comments with a grain of salt until there is some solid proof that what he says is true.

Tweet from self-proclaimed tech secret agent Riccolio says that the Snapdragon 820 SoC overheats like the Snapdragon 810 does

More Portable heaters on the way. Exynos to dominate and Other OEMs will have to rely on Qualcomm or switch to Media Tek.

clocked at 3ghz, quite plausible... clock it to 2.5ghz, problem solved... by the way, isn't it just a rumor to bring another havoc in qualcomm's folio?

Definitely a fake rumour. Heat is probably their primary focus right now. They're not going to fk up a second time.

Inside a modern CPU are features to prevent damage through "overheating".
In the event of cooling failure, the CPU will throttle then shut down beyond a critical temperature threshold to avoid "damage".

Then dont take the Exynos

its trottle like hell after like 20 min of gaming.
You wont notice it because no game currently even use half the GPU of newer flagship level chipset.

Only place you will see it is in benchmark.
Do same benchmark for an hours and compare result.

Yeah and the Snapdragon 810 throttles even more then the 7420 so yeah 7420 is better then the 810 and throttles less.

You meant to say "dont take the snapdragon 810" actually as it throttles more then the 7420

57. FrenchGuy (Posts: 108; Member since: 12 Dec 2014)


whether 7420 is better than SD 810 or whether it is not, I just want you to stop using "then" instead of "than".
Because I'm not a hater or whatever, I'm giving you a way to never make this mistake again.
In "compArison" there is no "E" so it's not "thEn" but "thAn" when you want to make a comparison.

810 throttles more but runs cooler after that. 810 can be throttled less and run as hot as the 7420.

You're here again and again you say bulls**t about the things you do not even know.

Games do note utilize the full GPU power? FALSE, dont trust this people. I have done a lot of tests so I can say that a lot of games use full GPU power. For some games this even isn't enough - the fps drops sometimes.

this is absolutely nothing but pure click bait, dude/guy has absolutely no evidence or anything to backup what he said...just generating clicks/hate on Qualcomm.. sure qualcomm deserves what they been recieving for the Snapdragon 810 but i highly highly doubt the 820 has heating issues like the 810.

being built on a 14nm node from Samsung and also most likely being a quad core CPU setup only shoots this notion down hard of the Snapdragon 820 "overheating"

this article/report is as reputable as Donald Trump saying Obama has a side chick that he brings in the Oval office when no one is looking

Thats he thing we did had some return for the S6 edge for overheating ( none for the S6 btw ) but not in high volume.

We had 0 return for overheating on the HTC M9 for all Telus in Canada..

So nice propaganda as usual.

What part of the word "throttling" are you still not getting? Random YouTube videos and your adventures at the phone store are not representative of a problem that has been admitted. Please tell the manufacturers using the 810 to stop spreading "propaganda" about themselves.

The reality of the issue is that all chips no matter what manufacturer will run between 45-50'c when pushed to the extreme limit. The notion that there's a chip out their running on a device with batteries (laptop, phone, tablet etc) that doesn't throttle is simply wrong.

Yeah its daydream cause they all run at around 70 degree.

posted on 18 Jul 2015, 15:17

143. alex3run (Posts: 713; Member since: 18 May 2014)


70 is too low. On full power top class SoC can easily reach 90+ degrees °C after that value it throttles heavily.

I'd say the overheating part is because of the glass construction. Galaxy S6 active with the same specs doesn't overheat because it is thicker and the construction is pretty good. So Don't Blame the Exynos 7420.

So, if LG, Sony and Docomo said that sd810 overheats, then we see a video of s6 edge overheating (btw, not a unique case, google "s6 overheating"), your logic is "I saw nothing, only sd810 overheats"?

69. iushnt (Posts: 1687; Member since: 06 Feb 2013)


I guess HTC One M9 sells in really low quantity compared to S6 duo. So, sales return chances are low. On top of that S6 scored about 70,000 in Antutu. HTC one M9 was 55,000 and due to high heat they underclocked the chip and now they score about 51,000.? And still the heat is slightly greater than the s6. You may argue about benchmark being useless or cheated but heck, 19,000 Antutu score difference cannot be easily ignored. Which chip and device deliver more value for money can easily be seen here..

HTC M9 runs cooler than the S6. Actually, S6 can get pretty hot:

FYI the M9 now scores the 56k on AnTuTu consistently on the latest 1.40.401.8 sw
And with the latest 2.8 sw on the developer edition, the M9 can reach up to 65k in AnTuTu !!
So come on guys, S810 is improving and will improve. Plus that the S6 scores 63-66k most of the time. It rarely scores this 70k
