conclusion the cpu of 805 is almost as same level as 801
a.k.a no hope for smooth hi10p playback using snapdragon 805
Just wanted to add to the pool of knowledge here.
10bit 720p seems to be working perfectly so far on my Note 3. I only tested a couple of videos, but I have yet to see any lag, even during panning scenes. The videos tested were: Jojo Stardust Crusaders (some episodes, by Horriblesubs), Soul Eater Not (some episodes, also by Horriblesubs) and Nisekoi (one episode, by FFF). It is not overclocked, and I am running the X-Note rom. I disable multitasking and kill all processes just to be safe before playback (unsure if this is even needed). It is playing in H/W+.
I tried some 1080p 10bit videos and it was awful. I have no idea how the guy with the S5 managed to watch it. The Note 3 has the same hardware, so maybe the videos he tried were of a lower bitrate...? I don't know.
I've got an issue with 10bit playback on my HTC One. I've been using the combination of Serviio, BubbleUPnP, and MX Player to stream my videos over my home network. It has been working flawlessly, until I try to play a 10bit video with subtitles. Over the network, the subtitles do not show up at all. If I transfer the video to my device and then try to play it, I get subtitles but the video becomes a bit choppy and annoying to watch. This only seems to happen on the 10bit videos. I'm not sure what I can do to get things working.
I am on a completely stock HTC One with Android version 4.4.2, HTC Sense 6.0, and using MX Player version 1.7.28.
Just for the sake of completeness, here is a MediaInfo dump of one of the episodes that is giving me this issue:
