Motorola Moto X (2015) to get the Snapdragon 810 processor instead of the 808

There have been plenty of leaks pertaining to the Moto X (2015), particularly over the past couple of weeks. In early May, we were treated to a full list of the upcoming handset's apparent specs, including a 5.2-inch 1440 x 2560 display, 4 GB of RAM and a 16 MP Clear Pixel camera. The same leak also pointed to a Snapdragon 808 processor, but more recent insight suggests that Motorola could instead opt for the Snapdragon 810.
overheating issue with the 810, which seems to be something of nothing in all honesty, the SoC powers a number of top-end devices, including HTC's flagship One M9. It has its advantages over the Snapdragon 808, including support for higher display resolutions and a more powerful GPU. The 808, bear in mind, is still a beast -- one that LG considered strong enough to bundle with the G4 -- but the marginal performance bump offered by the 810 will surely be viewed favorably upon by Moto X fans not caught up in the overheating hype.Despite the supposed
Aside from utilizing the DROID Turbo's quad-HD display, which offers a mind-blowing 565 pixels per-inch, the Moto X (2015) is likely to arrive in 32 and 64 GB capacities. The main, 16-megapixel snapper will probably be accompanied by a 5-megapixel front shooter, and if these reported specs are true, the third-gen Moto X will need every last droplet of the 3280 mAh battery said to be in tow.
The Moto X (2015) will be available around August / September as per the earlier word of Motorola's president Rick Osterloh, so we've only a couple of months to wait and see exactly what the Lenovo-owned firm has in store.
Let us know in the comments whether you'd prefer to see the Snapdragon 810 or the 808 powering the next Moto X.

810 has been a real dud. Anyone who says otherwise is in denial. Why else would Samsung use their exynos chip over the 810. Another fail move by Motorola to use a bad chip:

I really liked moto x 2014 version, IMO they got it right(may be except battery). It was nice device for fair price (as during thanksgiving and on few other occasion it was selling for 360 and for 400 most of the the next to it).

The LG Chocolate is better and cheaper than the Nexus 5. That's a statement, with 0 reasoning to it, just like what you posted. Would you care to elaborate and have a discussion or are we just arguing for the sake of arguing throwing reason to the side?

Why else easy their own chips was better and they reach the potential to build the soc in mass. 810 wasn't over heating at all of you want to say this phone or after 30 min of high use it was 50 C then the Samsung one overheat too at this point so, shut it already.

I'll tell you why: it's clear that, for Samsung, selling phones with its own chips instead of buying them from another supplier, is convenient. The problem is that, in the western market, everyone wanted snapdragon chips, because they were considered the best chipsets. As soon as the problems of the 810 marred qualcomm's reputation, Samsung felt that users would not worry about not having a snapdragon chipset in a flagship, and dumped qualcomm. That's why Samsung uses exynos chips: convenience. But I don't think that users will see any difference in daily use between a snap 810 and an exynos.

Why would there be no SD upgrade from Q1 to Q3 2015? The g flex 2 had the 810. We don't only want the 820, we need it. Last year SD had the 801 for Q1 and 805 for Q3. A Q3 phone should be a better phone than a Q1 one, or at least for 4 months.
