LG says Snapdragon 810 heat issues have been dealt with, LG G Flex 2 and LG G4 stay on track

At its recent Q4 2014 earnings conference, which saw the company boasting about a 25.2% sales growth, LG admitted that it encountered "issues" in the initial batch of Snapdragon 810 processors, but it managed to solve them. Both the LG G Flex 2 and LG G4 will come on time, outfitted with Qualcomm's latest silicon. Design and cooling system challenges are mentioned, so we take it the company specifically designed its new smartphones to accommodate the powerful, but temperamental SoC. Hopefully, the solution doesn't involve heavy throttling and display brightness reduction, which will result in flawed performance.
In addition, Korean journalists asked LG about employing metal designs in its upcoming smartphones, to which the company responded that such decisions are decided by market demand. Thus, the question of whether the LG G4 will switch to a metal build is still up in the air.

Benchmak says exynos > snapdrago, so I don't really care about the oberheating issue.

You shoould, the overheating can be thea actual cause of the lower performance, as it if a SoC heats too much it throttles the frequency, therefore reducicn the performance.

You are wrong. Even 4500 is a throttled score. But of cource while getting 4500 points the CPU throttled less heavy than while it scored 2800 points. Also interesting that some Galaxy Note 4 owners get 4800 points on stock firmware/no root/stock kernel. But its CPU is clocked lower than Snapdragon 810 and that's why it is theoretically slower. If Snapdragon 810 didn't suffer from thottling it would get scores close to Exynos 7420 because the CPU is almost the same.
