Dimensity 9000 series are extremely confusing lineup K50 d9000 on performance mode can easily score upto 4700 in multi but don't know what happens later on The 8100 have shown to be better overall than the 9000 series too

Grow up Android. Will one need Kevlar gloves for using the 8-gen 2-powered phones?

David Johnston, The old chips from Samsung did that. The 8+gen1 didn't have heating issues. While yes apple has cooler chips than Android but it's not far behind. In fact, except for single core, the 8gen 2 is better at everything than the a16 bionic which is a win for Android this year.
