"Has 2 more cores" is listed as a pro for the Snapdragon. This is wrong. The snapdragon has lower total performance and the fact that there are an extra 2 cores is already included in that performance. But the downside on needing those 2 extra cores is that the performance of each core is even lower that the overall performance indicates. So for any algorithm that cannot make use of multiple cores, those extra 2 cores actually spell bad news, and not good news.

Qualcomm orders Samsung 4nm technology for mass producing the regular Snapdragon 895, the Snapdragon 895 Plus could be fabricated by TSMC. One reason why the Taiwanese chip manufacturer is not taking Qualcomm orders is due to the ongoing silicon shortage.

Benchmarks are meaningless. Use any phone with an sd 888 for more than a couples minutes under load and the performance will tank because the phone will thermal throttle itself into midrange or lower territory.

Decide yourself 17 August 2021 10:11
Been using both android and ios since 2015 And frankly I don't notice that slight difference people so adamantly mention in debates. Android is more user friendly, has lot of options- you need a bigger screen? A big screen with 120hz? A small screen with 120hz? A small phone with 5000mah? A phone with 7000 mah battery? Dual speakers? Oled display? 3.5mm? Notification led? -its customizable On the other hand iPhone have became a status symbol mostly due to fact that many prominent figures use it, but they are not very user friendly sure the os and hardware are well optimized but at the cost of freedom there are a lot of walls you must "break" or climb sometimes if you want freedom and, if you pull out your 300$ android in a lavish party you'll get "those" kind of looks, well that's the society we live in and I have experienced it myself. But if your caught gaming on a iPhone you'll quickly become a laughing stock among gamers. but that doesn't mean you should do what the world wants you too, hell play on iPhone or work on Android because you are the one who paid for it. I use my both phones however I like and don't give a damn about the world.if my battery runs out on Android I'll continue playing Azur lane and Genshin on iPhone lol nothings going to stop me. 888 vs 2100 vs 900 vs A14 To open a Netflix or whatsapp even that unamed mediatek processor is enough Sure some games are demanding but....do you really game on phone? I mean it's cool if you do but I'll prefer a PC or console personally and if mobility is not required. Even mid range SD and older A10 can run modern games, sure not on "Ultra" but you get to play them anyway. Remember real racing 3? Ofcourse new processors have better connectivity and camera modules and other nerd and geek stuff, I'm not going into details but I think even the old iPhone X and galaxy note 10 take pretty good pics even today. What my point is the companies will keep trying to milk you in name of flagship but you have to know your needs, apple will keep rolling new iPhone. today's A14 will be dethroned but will that mean users will throw away their 12 series? Nope even after next 5 years every app in store will run on it, by that time I think they will be selling iPhone 15 or 16 lol same is with Samsung and other brands. I have used both and will continue to use both and I'm telling you unless you do extremely heavy task like rendering, video editing, mobile photography etc you will never be able to say the difference in day to day task. Peace out.

It comes with 1GB of RAM runs iOS 7 and is powered by a 1570mAh non-removable battery. hahah :) and also playing in this device free fire. funny isn't it?

I'm not an expert in phone tech, however, I can almost guarantee you that Apple hasn't done this due to battery reasons. Apple has been avoiding making their phones too heavy, thick, or generally large and it seems that they finally have to go with the higher screen refresh rate trend... But the bigger battery actually makes my S21 Ultra almost impossible to use one handed... So maybe Apple might be on to something?

I've not encountered any overheating problems with my S21 Ultra, and it has the Snapdragon 888. It's probably the coolest in terms of temperature I've ever owned, actually... But I still can't argue with you. Apple definitely seems to know their way around an ARM chip. Would love to see Qualcomm make strides to catch up or surpass Apple

Mahesh chaudhary, This isn’t completely true except in gaming. Some people use iPhones to compress 4k and 8k image data and videos. And blah blah blah. Which the a14 wins in and it doesn’t matter what refresh rate the screen is in order to do that. I had a s20 ultra. Honestly it was buttery smooth but I’d rather have the extra 3 hours of battery life when it was turned off

People buy what they want or what they prefer. No need to freaking bash one another. Buy it, use it, enjoy it. Respect one another. As for me I use both Android and Apple. Android for gaming and apple for daily use. Hahaha. My android has 12gb ram while my iPhone has 6gb. you know what? I can't tell the difference. both are fast and nice to use. haha. So quit this childish argument. No side is better than the other.

When some complain about optimization in Android and compare it with iPhone, try to check the iPhone again, you will see that you can't use any app except the one iPhone has allowed you to use. You can't try many foreign apps coz there's no optimization there in those part. If you're allowed to use those apps and you see those lags in iPhone much more that you will be terrified and shocked😂. This is a smart move that iPhone has been doing to it's users for years and blinding them. It's not easy to just sprang up on your own and start using all the apps other Android are using this is what iPhone has been trying to optimize for the some years since it's production that's why you see payments most times on iPhone. Am not trying to be baised here. Am just explaining some few things there are many more that I can say but from the look of it. My hands can't go further 😂. I rest my case here, have a nice day everyone. Maybe am wrong in some parts here but I don't have time to do correction. Am open to learn new things though so you can add if you like. We learn everyday. 👌

Instagram/Facebook are not apple apps but they works smoother than on any andriod phones.. If you are talking about apps downloaded outside of apple store , yes their optimization would be poor because apple ensure all apps on store have best of optimization but if user go out of it , legs will be there.. Andriod in this case encourage people to download shit from anywhere , apple ensure security over freedom and that’s choice for every individual to choose either more freedom/customization or choose better optimized secured chamber type OS

iOS, Nice new topic u got there. Even how tough the phone structure is or u had bought a case for Ur phone, there's still a chance u might damage the phone and u might don't know how since bad lucks r every fking where. And the point that he wants to state out it's if there's someone accidentally damaged the backglass of their phone, they're having a bad day to spend a fortune just to fix the broken glass when the other companies could've just charge u lesser then a new cheap phone does. If you ever damaged Ur phone front glass, and the company wants to charge u more than a used iPhone 8 plus does, would you spent the money? Think about it twice. Not all people r very willing to spend tons of sh@t just for the easy and quick repair

iOS, I really don't think that either of those phones are particularly durable... Especially given both of their track records... As for that particular drop test video, both phones survived until like 12 feet, where the S21 Ultra took a bad bounce. They should really do those tests with 3 phones, each. I bet you'll find the average to be very close.

Always buy Android phones. They have better features and more flexibility in terms of software, backup restore etc. Also they are cost effective. See the Samsung S series and MI 11 series and also some Flagship killer under 30K with snapdragon 870. I would think to buy iPhone again but the unrepairable glass design and high cost service made me switch from iPhone 11 to Samsung S series. Pretty happy with S21 5g

Can everybody here simply not understand that benchmarks “DO NOT” always give the truth behind the strengths of each SoC. Apples A-Chips have power in mind but are also much more superior in term of efficiency, something that SD888 has been noted for is its thirst thanks to its X1 Core and generally Qualcomm’s push for it to be powerful. Benchmark Performance and real world performance don’t relate to each other for most user, operating a phone with an antutu of 550000 won’t necessarily feel more useless than one at 650000 given that most of the 100000 gain is spread through different components. I personally have an iPhone 11 Pro/A13 of course it’s not slow, is it the fastest, No, does that “really”, well No it doesn’t. Only Nerds particularly on the Android field care about numbers and spec sheets and incidentally One-Upmanship. If I would make a point, It’s becoming more difficult for all manufacturers to make fast yet efficient chips without increasing that size of batteries in phones. I also wonder where that will end, is this why Samsung pushes foldable sad the next thing? Because eventually “ordinary” phone will be too big to hold?

Thatguy, Yeah, not everyone understands that while the SD888 is "better" on paper, it is mostly required by the relatively heavier reskinned Android OS. I would actually praise Android mainly for the pixel lineup exclusively, while the phones are using year older SoC's, they perform just as good as the newer ones out now. I'm the one who really hates comparing phones by "gaming", as the manufacturer specs don't really take into consideration the third party app makers and how these games optimize the phone's hardware.

Sup ppl... Been using both snapdragon and a14.... Both SOC are amazing... The SD could be the winner, but its biggest downfall is the lack of optimization from companies that use the chip... Most phones out there are plagued by shitty skinned androids, lack of updates and fine tuning... Its shameful that every year the snapdragon doesn't get used to its full potential.. Perhaps the best use case for it comes from the Asus ROG phones... As for the a14, the fact that apple controls its stack makes it more appealing for long term and it has superior software tuning to go with it... Also iOS in general is much cleaner under the hood when referring to coding. There is no messy files app, and software is supported for 2-3 or more times longer the android... They both have pros and cons... What I miss is a company like essential ph1, they literally had the best update support for android, even beating out Google's own phones!

Jesus, Actually, it is very close, while the a14 has a higher speed, the 888 has a score of 711032 while the A14 has a score of 596344. All though the A14 wins in the GeekBench, the 888 has a better GPU. Along with a better camera capture, Memory Frequency and L1 L2 cache It also has a faster Download and Upload speed It has an NPU while A14 has software and 1720 Gigaflops is much better than the A14. 888 also has more cores

Hard to understand how people don't fully appreciate Android for its easy access to Google Assistant which is truly a game changer. iOS has it too, thanks to Google but it's not fully integrated and a user has to negotiate with Siri first which makes the whole experience a real hassle. I still use my OnePlus 6 like it's brand new (A10 and patiently awaiting A11). I can invoke Google Assistant when my phone is in my pocket and locked. A must feature that iOS can't really offer. Buying an iOS smartphone is basically for either the braindead or just for a very discriminating user. Siri is worthless, by the way.

Maybe you guys using Snapdragon 870 high tech processor or A13, you might use A14 or Snapdragon 888 but im still using iphone 5s, 1.3GHz dual-core Apple A7 processor. It comes with 1GB of RAM runs iOS 7 and is powered by a 1570mAh non-removable battery. hahah :) and also playing in this device free fire. funny isn't it? In future you have to sell your kidney for A14 bionic or M1. can not afford bro.

The first part, I agree, but my last 3 phones were a s20 ultra, apple iphone 12 and a note 20 ultra. Any app that was specifically optimized by apple or the developer works great, if I ever tried a sketchy app I have no support and it glitches like crazy. The samsung's solution was just throw as much specifications it could into a phone and slightly optimized it, although a stupid solution, it works like a charm and even the sketchy apps that I use for virtualization control or network management actually works! I don't have to carry around a laptop! Ok, I will give you that most people don't need their phone to do that, but I didn't really see the point of owning a phone that has a terrible assistant (which used to be the industry standard RIP Siri), has such a bad screen (ok yeah im spoiled by samsung), and its main use is for snapchat and instagram.

Bud, the iphone may have a 60 Hz refresh but it has a 120 Hz sample touch rate that makes everything fluid. Andrioid is performance all out while apple is productivity and class all out. The same goes for a Mac and a windows machine. They both are targeted for different marktes and shouldn't be compared much. I prefer android becauee of the simple performance numbers and Qualcomm provides just that! A14 bionic has its own uses. More ram or no android takes alot to run rather than iOS and so it need much less ram. And also the amount of gaming options on iOS are not as vast as on android with google play, that's also a reason apple can make do with less ram and give competiton to the best flagships. It comes down to preference rather than numbers.

The competition between qualcomm and apple is good for advancing technology and affordability. However this race really seems to be one sided in favor of the apple a14 bionic. You see the performance charts that the a14 is beating qualcomm's recently released flagship snapdragon 888 by decisive margins despite coming out 3 months earlier. And add to qualcomm's short comings, just recently the 888 was tested on iqoo and xiaomi phones and 2 major problems occurred, first the 888 consumed more battery power than expected and second the 888 ran hotter than expected which shows that the 888 needs refining, so my advice is if you're a android fan do not try to become the first kid on the block to get a 888 based phone but rather wait until qualcomm perfects their 888. By doing that you'll get a better perfected phone and you'll get for a lower price possibly since prices start coming down after awhile. Now if best performance is what you're seeking in a phone regardless if it's android based or apple ios based then the choice is easy, the apple with the a14 bionic wins easily since it wins in performance and does not have those 2 problems I already mentioned that qualcomm is currently having with their newly released flagship 888.

I am not a fan of any company but truth is apple is always way 3 years ahead than android The only thing is taking price is too much in India than foreign But rest about iPhone is good The best optimization, best build quality , best processor, best chipset , battery life is also now better, and best security But the fans of android and those who can't afford iPhone don't understand or belief that android is not not better than IOS also the phones of flagship level from xiaomi, realme make their smartphone slow in 1 years only And finally There's no level of comparison of android and iOS they are both good at their own place Where for best when money dosent matter than iphone(the camera are not the best, but the video recording is best) When money concerns than android is best So don't compare them blindly as they have different apps for their own OS Thank you

only thing i have against apple is their lack of ports and prices. but now that samsung has removed sd, headphone jack and raised prices to $1k. i guess its time to get an iphone android has other options besides samsung but even pixel has no sd slot/jack, also never gets 865/888 flagship socs.

Ha ha ha, First, why would you need 144hz when you peak out at 60fps -_-. Second, the notch is there to hold the face ID sensors, better than using cameras for face unlock. And okay, I agree. They could use a better charging speed, but it's not important to me as I only charge my phone in the night.

Junaid, It's getting better. 12.5 apparently cuts back on ram use which is the biggest con of MiUI. Personally I like MiUI more than stuff like Oxygen OS because it feels better using MiUI compared to something much more lighter like Oxygen OS which feels barebones.

iPhone vs Flagship Android 13 January 2021 10:20
Since 2014, every 2nd year I bought one flaghsip OnePlus to me and one iPhone to my wife. There is no doubt, that OP has always better battery life, more free app option. But. After two years of usage - android becomes more laggy (after wipe too), no sw or security updates were delivered, battery life becomes worse against iPhone. And biggest pain point of my android phone was value loss. Android lost after two years 70-80% of origin value, where iPhones I sold in no time with half price. Since 2018 I switched to iPhone too (my current phone is iPhone XS 256GB) and guys, I'm still getting sw updates with new features added. No lagging, performance is pretty good. Still playing games on highest settings, battery life is still one day +. I know that iPhones lacks some android nice features, but I don't care because I don't need them. Buying a phone is the same as buying car. It's all about your preferences.

I would say it depends on the manufacturer of the phone and carrier for updates tbh. Bc google phones and samsung phones on Verizon receive all updates pretty quickly. The former quicker due to android software being made by Google lol.. I think that's where apple has a leg up since that process is more streamlined bc they don't have to deal with multiple companies

Das wäre für mich persönlich Android nicht in Frage, aber das bedeutet noch lange nicht, dass man dieses Produkt schlecht findet, jeder sollte einfach das verwenden, was er will, klar der Preis bei sind oft unterirdisch, aber sonst Top-Unternehmen Das war meine Meinung und ich will niemanden angreifen oder sagen dass seine Sachen schlecht sind daher euch allen ein schönes neues Jahr und ein guten Start ins neue jahr
