    CPU
    - Also, consider that they tested the MDP which, as far as common sense goes, has a top notch "cooling".

    GPU
    - Also, consider this is 3D advantage in TESTS, not the games, so it more likely to be about 15-30% FPS gain, throttling will be present in future devices, if they won't go with water cooling (Japanese models already have one device with it).

    - If you do need 4K through HDMI or on tablet...which is cool, but I can't see it as an improvement, cause it's over 400 dpi already.

    So, basically, 801 - is the ultimate bad boy for quite some time.
    Add some UV\OC - yah-ya-betcha-yah.

    P.S. Yes, UV\OC is not for everyone, but well, heck you're on OnePlus forums for some reason :)
    So with all the waiting OnePlus One is the ultimate machine with extraordinary value per buck.

    P.P.S Yes, h265 and 20% less power consumption: for the first one you have to find any files first, second - I just don't know about this "20" number ;)

    Yeah, I wish the LG g3 had this and instead has this:

    • System chip:
      • Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 8974-AC
    • Processor:
      • Quad core, 2500 MHz, Krait 400
    • Graphics processor:
        • Adreno 330

    Thank you for posting this. I was just wondering about the differences between the two processors yesterday. This is a nice comparison to show that I really don't need the 805 even though it is the latest.

    Tegra 3 was a major disappointment, I am in no hurry to try another Tegra device.

    By the time the 805 comes out there will be more SoCs on par with it. Just read about the Kirin 920. If what they say is true, you can get the same preformance as an 805 for sub $200. (Apparently, the Kirin SoC costs $16 to manufacture.)

    The race to the bottom is on.

    Then it does not stay up when she needs a thrust to do big tasks.

    OPO would sell them if they had a decent phone to sell. They either don't have an acceptable bug-free phone or are still having manufacturing defects.

    Honestly I feel like moving from S4 Pro to 80x seems like minor upgrades plus faster clock. 801 did bring heavy throttling to maximize battery life which I could consider a 'killer' feature but from 801 to 805 then to 810, it all seems like such a minor upgrade on frequency and featureset.

    Few have mentioned Huawei Kirin, nVidia Tegra K1 and Samsung Exynos as challengers but in reality, they barely make a scratch in the Qualcomm's fortress of Snapdragon.

    We need some serious contenders to bring out fierce competition to Qualcomm and we will see some serious innovation and killer features that will benefit us as consumers. I would be happy with 801 and skip over all the marginal updated SoC.

    805 will have thermal limiting issues...mark my words....if you really want to wait for something wait for the 810...the 20nm process compared to the 28nm will make a world of difference thermally
