lightsalot, Jul 19, 2015 : A few reports more have been coming out about the "SD810 v.2.1" that the OP2 will be using is not so different from the original SD. HTC has come out and said they're using that SD already, among other companies like Xperia (Z3+) and they're still experiencing overheating issues despite putting out updates to try and fix this issue. There was a post on Reddit not long ago calling out the OP teams' lack of transparency and insufficient customer service skills (focusing on putting the users at fault rather than being transparent) and since then, OP has taken a step in the right direction by improving their CS. I also know they recently put out a blog saying "they're mad" about these rumours regarding the SD 810 but they really failed to address how they developed a more improved version of it. Significantly larger companies like Sony and HTC are still struggling to fix this issue, as much as I am anxious and excited about the OP2, I seriously doubt the development team at OP would be the ones to find a solution to this mess. The HTC spokesman said there really isn't a 'new version' of the SD 810, there is just one chip and he basically accused OP of lying to their fans so they can create an illusion that 'v.2.1' is a solution to the overheating, even the Tweet by Jeff Gordon (HTC's communications manager), attacking the OP2 Qualcomm on SD10 a few days ago Meaning the current version of SD 810 everyone is running on is an 'enhancement' to the previous one, it doesn't necessarily mean its a fix to the overheating, otherwise HTC, LG, Sony would have been out of the woods, but they're not and still working to find a fix. LG on SD10 & OnePlus It'd be nice if the OP team can address this more in depth...I went from being skeptical about the OP2 following its SD 810 announcement to almost completely put off after this last week. I had planned on getting this phone asap, but I think I'd rather wait until the dust settles now. EDIT I know the team said they will run the phone at 1.8ghz instead, but how does that solve the issue? The difference isn't noticeable...but if we're paying for a phone that is supposed to deliver 2ghz but we're receiving 1.8 instead (even if its considered a 'solution' to the overheating), then we're still losing out on 10% of what was promised to us and that is not our fault.
