This might be the reason your Sony Xperia Z3 overheats

snapdragon-phoneasylumWith the chips for Android phones we have experienced some controversy on specially on the Snapdragon 810 Qualcomm, a component that Samsung rejected because it causes overheat and considering what happened recently with Sony Xperia Z3 users, it seems that they were not misguided.

Anyway, although the heat dissipation is essential in a processor, processors are mainly about performance – what it offers and its degradation versus six models that are part of the main market competitors. We are talking about the Apple A8 of the iPhone 6, the Exynos 5433 of Galaxy Note 4, the Exynos 7420 of the new Galaxy S6, the Snapdragon 805 riding some Galaxy Note 4, the Snapdragon 808 LG G4, the Atom Z3580 ASUS Zenfone 2 and 810 Snapdragon of the Xperia Z3.

The test that we present here does not measure whether it is more or less powerful than other competitors, but the deterioration in the processor when working. This data is determined by comparing the maximum and minimum speeds they can get working each one of them. All this can be seen reflected in the graphs.


For example, in the table we have above the difference measured between these maximum and minimum results that gives each processor in order to test them with Geekbench, and Snapdragon 810, with a significant difference presents itself as the worst component with 65%.


Above you can see the difference between the average obtained with the minimal results of each processor and the Snapdragon 810 and continues to lead by far, as the worst performer. The best results were obtained by the 808 Snapdragon in the LG G4, which is placed immediately after Apple’s A8 for the iPhone 6.

So with this information in hand, do we understand all the issues that have been appearing on devices running with a Snapdragon 810? Have they solved these problems in the future version 2.1 to be mounted in the OnePlus 2?
