    When watching the Google cardboard demo, for example, so it is the same program, the Priv gets much hotter than my wife's iphone 6. Generally it gets hotter using any VR app, but would not be comparing apples to apples..... not sorry for the pun.

    It's pushing alot more pixels with its 2560x1440 resolution and the Snapdragon 808 SOC with the Adreno 418 GPU isn't really built for 2K VR.

    As an example of the power differential, the Adreno 418 can push 172.8 GFlops/s where the Adreno 530 in the latest Snapsdragon 820 can push 407.4~498.5 GFlops/s.

    Thanks for the information! I kind of thought that the dpi of 326 s 540 for the priv had something to do with it. Computing requirements mean heat build up...

    iPhone 6 is 720p not even Full HD so it is way less taxing on the hardware. 1440p is four times that resolution.
