I have a Samsung s9+ and LG velvet 5g the LG gets way better battery life probably because it's newer with less battery degradation. the LG also doesn't get hot even under load. the S9+ could run games at medium 60fps but the LG can only do 30 for some reason. the benchmarks say the LG should be better... In pixel gun 3d and PUBG, the S9+ can run both at 60fps (smooth and extreme fps for PUBG). but the LG can only do 45 fps on PUBG and has frequent frame drops from 60 on Pixel Gun 3d... the benchmarks don't show the whole picture i guess

The 845 marked the period in smartphone history when the 3.5mm audio jack started to die when Apple released the iPhone 8 (after the jack's first disappearance in the iPhone 7) without it that same fall in 2017. The 845 is also best remembered for powering the Pocophone F1 which not only included a headphone jack but was objectively the "flagship killer of the year". The 765G on the other hand will likely be remembered for powering the last Pixel phone ~ the 5a ~ with a headphone jack -- if Google decides not to not to ever include it in their phones again. Both are awesome SoCs that perform very comparably with the 765G sporting more up-to-date I/O and better energy efficiency.

Yup SD845 is more relevant than SD765G cause I use Sony Xperia XZ2 so I know SD845 still can use nicely

SD765G has better cores and is seemingly more power efficient which is obvious considering the generation. However it isn't a fair comparison as both belong to a different class. I'd have to agree that the SD845 is a heavyweight and devices powered by it are still going strong in 2021.

I use s9 plus and it's still handles pretty much anything i throw at it from processor intensive gaming to normal use...i still love it....I'm waiting for s22 now lol

It looks that Snapdragon 765G is faster when you use slow internet

SD 845 devices are cheaper, heavily supported by custom roms communities (like poco f1), great performance and better.

But snapdragon dont use this cpu anymore coz this is not power efficient

Miraj, Power efficiency is relative

Sd845 phones are cheaper because they had 4g not 5g. 5g tech is expensive thus, these cheap G processors are sold at high price just due to their 5g tag.

Miraj, Just root your phone and decrease the frequency of 845 to what 765g offers. You can also disable 2 cores if you want extreme efficiency(though performance will suffer).
