    We recently shared a story suggesting that the new version of the Snapdragon 810 in the new Sony Xperia Z5 is not prone to the overheating issues of the previous generation. It turns out we were wrong as brand new reports of the Xperia Z5 shutting down because of heat issues have started to surface.

    Here are the details:

    Ouch. It will be good to see Qualcomm move away from that chip asap. It's not good for their usually great image.

    why do OEM's keep using this chip despite the known issue of overheating? I really didn't think the development cycles were that long.

    either that, or Qualcomm heavily discounted the chip to unload inventory....

    Qualcomm is under severe pressure by IBM, Samsung, The Global Foundry. Even Intel has them beat in that sector.

    Looks like the current group of flagships (810 equipped) might be something to stay away from?

    There's a reason why some bumped up to 808 instead..
