"The port on the bottom is USB Type-C, but don't let that fool you - it only conforms to USB 2.0 specs."
Does this mean a USB type C hub with and HDMI output will not work with an external monitor?
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2016Exactly, SuckD is notorious for POS SOCs that heat up the most and perform the worst, the 820 ... moreHow long are you gonna keep dragging that dead horse around. Qualcomm redeemed themselves with the 820's custom core setup, little no no overheating issues to speak off so you can stop using that cheap excuse. And I don't know what you're talking about when you implicitly claim the 820 is bad in real world performance, have you seen with your squinty eyes all the latest flagships using it or are you just out to promote Hooway's weakass Krillian cause they got you in their payroll? High multi-core SoC's are a huge battery drainer no matter how hard the OEMs try to optimize them. The SoC's you mentioned have their advantages but the SD820 is just powerful enough to play in the same ballpark with them and their custom dual core setup is the best on Android, and it's no question they have the best GPU in the biz so don't even bother denying it lol

AnBruh, 04 Aug 2016Idc a piece of shit SoC is still a piece of shit, SD rules the smartphone world on every level... moreExactly, SuckD is notorious for POS SOCs that heat up the most and perform the worst, the 820 is no different. Their SOCs went to crap right after the 800 series, especially the massive fail 810 that dragged down so many manufacturers+flagships. A bench king that gives empty numbers but can't perform in real life won't change anything, the so called "weak" Kirin (to some ignorant people) crushes SD and Exynos in everything and is the strongest performing SOC to date in real useage. Manufacturers create their own SOCs to increase profit margins not to give competitors an edge to compete with their own phones, not many manufacturer uses Kirin, Exynos or Apple's A9 apart from the companies who created them but each one of the mentioned SOCs is miles ahead of anything put out by SD.

The only people still loving SD chipsets are ones who've never seen actual comparison videos. SD turds of sht can't even keep up with Exynos nevermind Kirin, SD820 was destroyed even by the Kirin 950 in everything (including graphical performance) in every single video out there but you can keep holding onto meaningless benchmark numbers and dreaming. Better custom rom support is the only advantage you mentioned that holds true, if you can count it as one, but pure performance wise SD820 is by far the worst SOC out of the three and throttles the most. No one cares if you'd use Kirin or not, stay with the bench king and hail the bench king that's only ever good at benching all you want, the videos are out there and facts don't change.
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2016Like I've said benchmarks don't translate into real world performance and don't mean much when... moreIn your own little world maybe, most people are loving the heck outta the 820 and there's a reason why most (if not all) non-Chinese OEMs consistently choose QC over MediaTurd/Kyron. SD's are way more reliable in the long run, has faster graphics engine and way better custom ROM support than any other chipset out there. I'd never buy a MediaTurd/Kyron phone nor would I use one even if it was given to me as a gift. Exynos is great and is the best multi-core performer no one is denying that, SD is great for the reasons I mentioned above. A few obscure YouTube videos that shows very subtle differences isn't gonna change anyone's mind bruh but enjoy your Pee-Pee 9 lol

These videos showing real world performance are the kind of thing that really counts.
AnBruh, 03 Aug 2016Think what you will but benchmarks are a good indicator of how well a phone will perform other... moreWatch some real world comparisons all the hard evidence is out there, I don't need to think anything other than how they perform in real useage. The difference between the 950/955 and the SD820 is more than big enough in everything from app opening, game loading, actual gaming to browsing. The SD820 can't even compete with the Exynos 8890 even though everyone was whining about the Exynos being a weaker SOC at first cause they were all depending on benchmarks then found out the Exynos actually performs better in real useage and give better battery life.
AnBruh, 03 Aug 2016Think what you will but benchmarks are a good indicator of how well a phone will perform other... moreLike I've said benchmarks don't translate into real world performance and don't mean much when they aren't representative of real world performance, there is no point looking at them when there are tons of real world speed/gaming comparisons out there. Benchmarks show one thing while real world performance shows the opposite and puts the SD820 at the bottom, there is no question which one is more accurate. A SOC can score the highest yet have the worst performance in real life like the SD820.

Real world performance between the two is probably negligible and not even worth mentioning.

This is why you can't just look at benchmarks.

I've seen tons of real world speed tests/gaming comparisons and the SD820 comes dead last between the three SOCs every time, including gaming comparisons showing frame rate. Benchmarks don't translate into real world performance, which is exactly why I made my comment, people need to stop just looking at Antutu or whatever benchmark and think it's the same when it comes to real world useage. If we were looking at Antutu the SD820 would come in first when it's the exact opposite in real useage.

Huawei's Kirin 955 silicon CPU performance is powerful, indeed but the GPU isn't as good as the ones in the Qualcomm and Samsung chips.
Just go to the Huawei P9 review and see for yourself the Basemark tests, the GPU of the Kirin 955 is no match to the one inside the Mi5, G5, S7 and even S6 Edge.
LG superfan, 01 Aug 2016I domt think this phone has bigger pixelsHow many times will you miss the point? You said 16MP is better than 13MP. I didn't write this just to say that this phone has a good camera. I wrote this to fix the thinking that people have. More megapixels doesn't mean a better camera.
Have the people commenting on the GPU even used a Kirin 950/955 device or seen speed/gaming comparison videos? Even the 950 owns the 820 by a long shot in everything (app opening, game loading, actual gaming, and browsing), no SD820 device has been able to come remotely close, including the 1080P Mi5. The GPU is a MP4 however it is clocked at 900MHz, way higher than Samsung's. Kirin 950/955>Exynos 8890>SD820 is how it goes in actual performance. Huawei's philosophy was focused on sustained performance, while chips like the 820 only focus on peak performance, by clocking fewer cores up it actually offers better performance, is able to keep up peak/near peak performance for much much longer periods with little dropoff and is also the best chipset when it comes to thermal throttling, just because it's a MP4 doesn't mean it's weak. The Honor V8 with a Kirin SOC and a 2K screen has already proven how beastly Kirin chipsets are. They are the best performers on the market.
