The Snapdragon 810 was a bit of a joke last year. With it's 8 core set up it really had a hard time keeping a handle on things. Overheating was a major issue. Qualcomm is hoping we can let bygones be bygones and move forward to the future of mobile processing alongside them.

What are the main differences between the 810 and the 820, and what makes the 820 so much better, you may be asking yourself. The biggest difference is that Qualcomm has decided to go back to the quad core setup and leave the octa-core setup behind. The 820 with 4 cores is still quicker than its older cousin with 8 cores. The all new Kyro CPU will perform at two times the rate of the 810 thanks to Heterogenous Computing.

HC allows phones to better utilize the cores available while keeping things much more efficient. There is also what Qualcomm refers to as the "low power island." This feature allows your phone to hibernate while not in use saving battery life. Are you as excited to use this chip in upcoming phones like I am?

I, for one, am looking forward to this chip in a new phone from one of the newer manufacturers. At the same, or near same, specs and half the price, how can one go wrong?
Samsung and Apple have been served...

I have the 810 on my 6P and I must say I do not have any of these overheating issue, although I've only had it a week. However, efficiency is efficiency and it's good to see Qualcomm paving the way for that.

810 should have never hit the market. What a disaster it was, kind of like Windows Millennium.
