SD 810

 

Reports that the new Snapdragon 810 chipset has been contending with heating problems has not stopped all OEMs from getting on board with the new Octa-core 64-bit silicon.

 

LG was the first manufacturer to announce it would be using the new system-on-a-chip in the new LG G Flex 2. The company said it was able to work around the chip's heat emissions. While that is arguably a good sign, it could also be seen as an acknowledgment that the Snapdragon 810 runs hotter than some would prefer.

 

The issue has been the source of reports that Samsung was forgoing use of the new Qualcomm chip, in favor of its own Exynos CPU for the next generation Galaxy flagship "Galaxy S6". However, it looks like Qualcomm is working on a redesign to address the heat emission issue and should have a solution for Samsung by March.

It is not known if that will be in time for Samsung's plans for manufacturing its new line of devices in 2015, but Qualcomm is undaunted since the Snapdragon 810 is obviously an integral part of the chipmaker's strategy.

 

For its part, LG has stated that heat levels are not solely about the CPU, but how a device is also designed to dissipate that heat. The company noted that the G Flex 2 was designed with the Snapdragon 810 in mind, so heat levels have remained within what LG deems optimal.

fun fit

 

HTC introduced the fitness and health focused app "Fun Fit" alongside its flagship smartphone One M9. Loaded with several helpful features, the application is now available for free from the Google Play store.

 

HTC has tailored the Fun Fit with a Sense-like fee, coupled with basic features for health and fitness tracking. For instance, the app will offer data related to steps taken, calories burned, time and distance.

These tracked activities will be shown in the form of fancy charts for better understanding of the data. Users can also feed their measurements and set goals. And of course, Facebook integration allows sharing the data with friends and contacts over the social network.

The Galaxy Note 9 is not a revolutionary device like the original Note was, but it is without a doubt, the best Galaxy Note ever released by Samsung. It's pricey and it doesn't exactly bring anything new to the table, but it refines everything about the Galaxy Note 8 and adds a number of new features and improvements that makes it a superb flagship smartphone, albeit at a steep starting price of $999! However, if you have a Gear VR, there's some bad news and good news.



Firstly, did you know that the old Gear VR cannot accommodate the Note 9 without physical modifications? Since Samsung did not even release a new VR headset with the Note 9 like they did last year with the Note 8, this is really bad news. The good news is that Samsung has already promised to ship a free Gear VR adapter that will let users equip the Gear VR headset with the Galaxy Note 9. However, the customer will need to contact Samsung's customer care by phone, chat or email and request the adapter. It is expected that the adapter will reach customers within two-weeks of the request or sooner, but this leads to the question, why did Samsung not include the adapter within the box?

Another handy addition will come in the form of a new "lite mode" map which is designed to be smaller and less interactive.
