Don't mind him, his just biased and after detailed research, the T618 destroyed the snapdragon 665. All the parts he left blank I checked myself and the snapdragon don't have any hope of winning. To be honest, the snapdragon 665 is the low-end.

It's because at the time when sd 665 was released, it was advertised and used on mid range phones. And I bet they don't update such details more often.
