If the TDP figures in this article are correct, the Snapdragon 778G SOC is going to provide significantly better battery life over the 888, while providing plenty of performance for the average user. Those who play online first person shooter games on their phones would benefit from the added bus bandwidth and graphics capabilities of the 888.

Not exactly, the TDP (Thermal Design Power) is for the maximum heat output of the CPU when it's at max load. For normal use, the snapdragon 888 has better battery life. The architecture of both CPUs is pretty similar with the only difference being that the 888 has the Cortex-X1(Which is what produces most of the heat) for its boost core.

Subuser, Nope snapdragon is better at heat absorption and battery life because of having weaker cores that's a fact.
