[Update: It's Back] Deal Alert - Pick Up An 18W Qualcomm Certified Quick Charge 2.0 Charger For Just 11 Bucks On Amazon After $5 Off Coupon

One of the things that I love most about my Sony Z3 is its compatibility with Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 technology. The phone takes forever to charge with a standard USB wall charger (like almost the entire night), but with a Quick Charge device I can bring it from dead to fully juiced in fraction of the time. I have chargers plugged in in various places throughout my home, but I only own one Quick Charger.

Team Win Recovery Project Now Supports Native Qualcomm Encryption On The OnePlus One

If you're a frequent ROM flasher (why does that sound mildly dirty?) and a OnePlus One owner, you might want to grab the latest build of TWRP. A Team Win developer says that it now supports Qualcomm's native encryption scheme in addition to Android's standard AOSP encryption. Why does this matter?

The LG G4 Supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 After All

You may have heard that the LG G4 doesn't have support for Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 technology, which seems odd considering it has a Snapdragon 808. That's what LG said at the launch event, but it's looking now like that was just a formality. The G4 has just appeared on Qualcomm's officially supported QC2.0 device list.

Qualcomm Decides Rumored Snapdragon 815 Does Not Exist, Would Like You To Please Stop Talking About It

Hey, remember all that hullaballoo about Snapdragon 808 and the G4 a couple days ago? Me too! Man, what a bummer for Qualcomm's totally-not-in-any-way-compromised Snapdragon 810. Those guys just can't catch a break!

And now, they really, really want you to know that there's no such thing as Snapdragon 815 and please just stop saying they were going to make another high-end chip based on ARM reference core designs.

[Deal Alert] CHOE 6-Port Turbo Charger (With Two Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 Ports) Is $24.99 On Amazon With Coupon

The Nexus 6 is big and fast and sharp, but my favorite feature is probably its Quick Charge capacity, which lets it charge up in a fraction of the time it takes older phones. The only problem is that this feature requires special charging adapters: one of them comes in the box, but the rest of the time you're stuck with the old charging rate.

Qualcomm's 64-bit flagship part is the Snapdragon 810, but not all devices will need that kind of power. That's why the company is extending its new designs down to the mid-range with updated Snapdragon 600 and 400 series chips. There are a total of four new chips—the 620, 618, 425, and 415.

Qualcomm Confirms Snapdragon 810 Won't Be Used In 'A Large Customer's Flagship Device' — Probably The Galaxy S6

We've heard a lot of back and forth about the Snapdragon 810, the first high-end 64-bit ARM processor from Qualcomm. First there were rumors that overheating caused Samsung to drop the chip from its Galaxy S6, then LG said the 810 was fine in the G Flex 2.
