The Apple A15 Bionic chipset is excellent for daily use, offering improved battery life, efficient performance for work and easy file storage, high-quality photos, and a satisfying camera experience. There are no issues with lag or the like, and even for gaming, this chipset demonstrates high potential. The A15 Bionic deserves a top spot, just under the Apple A16 Bionic.

I hope Apple can honestly say that their best chips are made in Taiwan, and their hearts are given by Taiwan, not China. For the sake of the Chinese market, Apple masks this fact as if one forgets who gave him life.

Why would you shoot 8k on the phone? A lot of memory … 4K it’s enough. I just switched from note 20 ultras to iPhone 13 pro. Gaming and battery are just uncomfortable to compare. Samsung overheating, lagging and battery drains like no tomorrow on Rising of Kingdom mobile. iPhone stays cool, smooth, and battery normal. You judge.

Phones and devices running on Sprint towers had a nasty habit of superheating in my experience. Perhaps your Samsung devices fell victim to the Sprint towers as well.

"Samsung overheating" bro, maybe you got the EU/KR Exynos version of Note 20 Ultra?? I have the Galaxy S22 Ultra (ROW) Snapdragon version and it's not "overheating" as you've said lol. It's normal for a chipset to crank up becs you're using it and it depends on the ram size of the game like Genshin Impact swallow! Whether it be the most optimized phone you got, playing games like Genshin Impact is no excuse! it will heat up. stop with the nonsense lol.

Which battery lasts longer, when doing the same tasks like browsing and watching Youtube? iPhone 13 Pro - with A15 Bionic, which consumes 6W - and has a 3,000 mAh battery. Nokia C20 - with the Unisoc SC9863A, which only consumes 3W - and has also a 3,000 mAh battery

Smartphone, I’d say the iPhone lasts longer, if you are not using the full CPU it’s really power Efficient

The iPhone 13 will probably be best since the OLED pixels will turn off when needed for dark scenes such as scenes involving space. Also, the lack of LTE bands and the lack of internal tech make the iPhone SE a better deal than the Nokia since there is only 1GB of ram or possibly 2 at most and an outdated Android Go version VS 3 or 4GB on the SE and more on the 13 Pro.

Smartphone, A15 will last longer and probably several times so. 6W is maxed power consumption, A15 will consume a small fraction of that for lighter tasks while weak Unisoc will have to work at full speed and consume all max 3W for almost any task because it's so slow. That's not even considering all kinds of optimizations in A15 which will definitely be much more advanced than in Unisoc.

Qualcomm is really falling behind more than ever. I say they stop this smaller chip size so they can hold more power and put many into it and work on it instead of decreasing the size every year. I say stick with 5nm and improve before you move to 4 and 3nm. Quit the race for smaller transistor size.

Qualcomm uses Samsung's 4nm node for production which is significantly worse than TSMC 4nm. So, if Qualcomm used TSMC like apple and the other companies then it's very possible that Qualcomm would be faster in every aspect whilst being way more power-efficient.
