Japanese carrier puts up heat warnings for Snapdragon 810 phones, advises to back up your data

It doesn't raise much more red flags than your carrier itself putting up overheating warnings for its models with a certain chipset, but that's exactly what the Japanese DoCoMo has done. Can you guess phones with which chipset had the privilege to be featured in the carrier retail store's warning?
Xperia Z4 (Z3+ in the rest of the world), Sharp's newest Aquos Zeta SH-03G, and Fujitsu's next Arrows F-04G. The common thread between them, besides that they are awesome new flagships? Why, the Snapdragon 810 processor, of course.Yep, you guessed right, DoCoMo pins the troublemakers as Sony's
NTT DoCoMo basically advises that to be on the safe side when it comes to overheating your handsets with Qualcomm's fastest chipset, you should shut them down while charging, and back up data on the phones against the most dreadful of scenarios, or even switch to tablets when you are at home, for instance. The global Xperia Z3+ version is said to come with the second generation Snapdragon 810, where overheating has been allegedly dealt with, but it is still startling to see such a warning in a carrier shop regardless.

Define "peaceful options"

That's bad, because Sony has this great app, Folding@home which lends the processing power of your smartphone for scientific research and requires your phone to be plugged overnight. The combination of having your phone charging and processing complex protein sequences heats up slightly my Z2 but I'm afraid that, if the Z3+ heats up more, then Sony should issue a warning, or not allow Folding@home at all on their new flagship. You really don't want your phone catching fire while charging next to you in the middle of the night.

Everyone should still use a tablet at home. They are cheap enough now and offer a much superior experience, plus every tablet should have a great way of receiving calls, texts, and whatsapp etc. now. That still doesn't excuse the sd810 though. Lol that's sad and Qualcomm should just jump straight to the 820.

Turn off while charging and rather use tablets at home, LMAO, this Qualcomm debacle is all pretty hilarious. Where are the Qualcomm fanboys who claimed Samsung were trying to damage Qualcomm's rep. ???? Quiet as mice, humble pie served :) unlucky boys.

This is part of the reason the HTC M9 is suffering in the sales department ( same re-hashed design of the M7 and M8 - large bezels etc..) Qualcomm basically did damage to them and other flagship models like Sony, LG, Motorola,Microsoft, etc.. What I dont understand is when these manufacturer realized this is why not suck it up and say " Hey Sammy lets get one thing straight - we hate you but we need your SoC?"

Perhaps they did try to get Samsung's SoC, and Samsung knew that if they supplied the SoC, they could get more money from SoC sales. but it could hurt their phone sales too, so they opted to not provide the SoCs. But of course, Samsung continues providing SoCs to Apple, continuing the long hypocritcal tradition of complying with Apple and attacking everyone else... even though Apple sued them multiple times.

How are they complying with Apple? That makes no sense. They supply Apple with over 100 million chips in a year. That's just a smart business decision because they would make significantly less money if they didn't. Also, Apple isn't the only company that uses Samsung chips. You can find the Exynos in multiple Meizu phones.
