"Qualcomm, even with its next-generation chip, which was built from the ground up, hasn't adopted big.Little, nor has it started using eight cores in its high-end flagship chip, the Snapdragon 820."

Lawlwut? Qualcomm has been using big.LITTLE for a while now, and they CONTINUE to do so with the 820. Search engines people... they're not just for porn anymore!

Actually now I'm not certain on the Kryo powered 820. They might be homogeneous in terms of core design but not certain what they're doing in terms of voltage and clocks. I've read mixed things. I'd even count chips like the 615 as being big.LITTLE conceptually, if not literally. For example the 615 has 4 lower-clocked lower-power cores and 4 higher-clocked ones. They're the same cores, but the differences in power and clockspeed make them heterogeneous in practice.

But for certain the 618, 620, 808, and 810 are all big.LITTLE by any measure.

@alextheblue I only said Qualcomm didn't adopt big.Little for its high-end next-generation chip. It's true it used it in Snapdragon 810, but I wasn't talking about it.
