    Samsung Galaxy S6 overheats?

    I have checked many news, videos, reviews, etc of this Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone all over the web. I read from somewhere that its Exynos 7420 processor has some throttling problem. This smartphone got more than 55k score but the score drops significantly in GPU and less in CPU. Since all this tests were made on demo devices so I am wondering if there will be any issues of overheating and throttling with the Exynos 7420 used in Samsung Galaxy S6? Thanks

    There was many news on Samsung dropping Qualcomm processor for its Smartphone, specially Samsung Galaxy S6 because this Snapdragon 810 CPU used to have some overheating issues, therefore they switched to Exynos CPU. Since this were demo units so there might be some unfinished things on both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge which might be causing some problems here and there. But if this Exynos is also causing the same overheating problems then it would be a disaster for this smartphone sales.

    Well, if there is overheating issues then most probably Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Edge would be considered as a better smartphone. I was also thinking to get the Edge version of this phone but it seems that the regular ones are scoring better. I also think that the units revealed in the event are not demo piece because they wouldnt want people to see an unfinished phone, therefore a test was also performed and it got 50k range score as well.

    Both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones are using 14nm chipset of Exynos 7420 along with Android 5.0 Lollipop. The CPU used on this smartphone are four Cortex-A57 cores running at 1.2ghz and four Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.5ghz manufactured by Samsung which should not produce that much of heat and throttling. Many people are also reporting that the iPhone lovers are simply putting a negative review everywhere about this Samsung phone.
