    We keep hearing fall release for these phones, and we have all heard the problems with the 810 chip. The 820 chip is supposed to be out in phones before 2016. Do you think Microsoft would be better off waiting (as it may only be a month at that point) to prevent a potentially devastating problem?

    Remember, they can't just decide one day to just rip out the chipset and replace it with another. It's all but set in stone without throwing out a lot of the work done.

    I kinda think that whatever issues the chip has can be mitigated probably.

    Big problem is also, people don't want to continue waiting.

    I agree with that statement, however it makes no sense to me as to why they would plan to use the 810 if it is a fall release when other companies (LG) are planning to use the 820 in their fall devices. They had to have seen it coming. I think Windows 10 Mobile will maintain the title of "most efficient OS on the market", however people have had issues with 810 phones in a number of basic tasks such as filming (camera is a HUGE part of Microsoft phones).

    I agree that people don't want to keep waiting, but this is do or die time for Microsoft. As much as us loyal fans want to stand by this with all our strength, they need to gain market share and if the phones have big issues, which turns off the general public, then Microsoft is in for a long ride. If it meant an extra month then, at this point, I don't think it is hurting anything to get it 100% right.

    Yes, they can't, but after realizing, that 810 is a defective chipset, they have no option but to change from 810 to 820.

    Continuum requires new hardware, and most likely not supported by SD 810?

    Could 810 v2.1 support two screened Continuum?

    I think it can, one of the features that Qualcomm talked about during the 810 launch was that it can handle simultaneous native and external 4k displays. I'm no expert in this but i think that's enough to run continuum.

    As long as it's not the first 810, i'm fine with it. But, given the wait, i'd probably still buy it knowing it's defective at birth.

    All the news from WC points to it being 810 v2.1.

    810 Version 2 isn't any better. Look Xperia Z3+.

    Even if it is version 2.1 I'll probably still avoid it.

    Got 920 and 1520 at launch, I'll probably give up on WP if the rumors are true and they stick with 810. WP API is still too locked down for my taste as well.
