AnonD-399271, 16 Jan 2017Mediatek are always 2 years behind Snapdragon and 3 years behind Apple. HahaWell in-term of real-use, X20 is fast if brands use it properly like Vernee does
Results are very close...
Oneplus 3 with Android 7.0 is a little faster...we must wait for update on X20 (Kernel for Android 7.1.1 are available on some devices)
Remember X20 is 20nm and 30 dollars...with 20nm Qualcomm makes 810, what a fail!!!
Snapdragon 820 is 14nm and 70 dollars
Mediatek conception is between high and mid, not high-end.
They can't compare in game, but if benchmarks says 3x better, reality is more between 1.5x and 2x (still on well used one)...S820 oversized texturing capabilities to fit with benchmarks.
On FullHD device it's far enough
On X30, Mediatek tries High-end
Remember that X30 will be 10nm like S835...Apple A10 is still 16nm
And GPU will be 2.5x faster than X20
You should wait for it...and see real-use performances instead of benchmarks...I'm sure it will surprise you. I bet CPU will be better on X30 than S835...and in-game framerate will be less than 15% lower (real game, not benchmarks)
Let a chance to them to avoid Qualcomm's monopoly...Monopoly is bad for customers.
Mi 6 Dual-Edge Curved Screen, SD 835, 8GB RAM perfect phone for me if they release 8GB Version.
AnonD-625786, 16 Jan 2017And it'll still have an awful build quality.The build quality on the mi5s is amazing why would they downgrade it on the mi6?
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2017Helio X30 is a joke, slower than SD653.Mediatek are always 2 years behind Snapdragon and 3 years behind Apple. Haha
AnonD-381576, 16 Jan 2017You are kidding X30 will destroy SD653 in every aspect. Cortex A73 Cores, Dual Channel LPDDR... moreMediatek has very poor GPU. It is wellknown. You can compare 3D scores of Helio X20 and SD821. SD 821 was almost 4 times better than X20 in 3D benchmarks. And now SD821 will atleast be 2 times better than X30.
Dear GSM-A , Mi5 may be beautiful But its build quality was very very poor. JerryRig proved it on his channel. This phone broke into half on very little pressure.
AnonD-381576, 16 Jan 2017They can drive the clockspeeds much higher with 10NM. The Cortex A73 cores will be clocked at... moreYes, I agree with you. They can increase the clock speeds much higher, as each gate delay should reduce @ 10nm node. But, there is a limit for increasing frequency, as higher frequency can cause the chip to become hot. Higher frequency means, higher power dissipation too. That is the reason, they are going for more number of cores, these days. A revamped architecture/design can give much better performance improvement (single core performance), compared to increasing frequency/number of cores.
AnonD-9680, 16 Jan 201710nm can give advantage, mainly for power and chip die area. Increase in performance might be ... moreThey can drive the clockspeeds much higher with 10NM.
The Cortex A73 cores will be clocked at around 2,8 Ghz in the X30.
Even higher with X35.
Single core performance should be really, really nice with A73 cores and that high clocks.
ssbatman21, 16 Jan 2017Is x30 being manufactured on 10nm???? If it is then sure its a nice choice for a lower versio... more10nm can give advantage, mainly for power and chip die area. Increase in performance might be limited, unless they improve the architecture/design.
Is x30 being manufactured on 10nm????
If it is then sure its a nice choice for a lower version of a flagship phone.
People who want flagship grade display, battery and camera but are not very heavy on apps and games can opt for it.
And xiaomi really needs to step up their game in the camera department.
Mi4 was good for when it was released, mi5 was just ok.
AnonD-490137, 16 Jan 2017That looks exactly like my Mi5! I hope this time the build is not as fragile as last time. ... moreI have used multiple devices sporting Mediatek chipsets and they are not even close to Qualcomm chipsets's performance. My HTC One M8 HK is still much faster than my HTC One ME.
As long as it sold officially worldwide then it will be a great phone
AnonD-490137, 16 Jan 2017That looks exactly like my Mi5!
I hope this time the build is not as fragile as last time.
... moreX30 uses PowerVR 7XTP-MT4 GPU (820-850MHz)
Iphone7 uses PowerVR 7XTP-MT6 GPU (670MHz)
Iphone has the potential of 257 GFLOPS
X30 has the potential of 210 GFLOPS with 820 MHz
Thats never ever a weak GPU in the X30!
As long as it has a metal build with big battery, it can be an option for me. Glass and even ceramic are becoming irritating on higher end devices.
Mark_S, 16 Jan 2017North American LTE bands compatibility anyone? Anyone?Depends on the Carrier, would suggest you contact the company where you will be using the device and ask them the LTE bands to see if the device supports them.
Yea guys relax, both are powerfull. Those who want Snapdragon can buy it. There is a reason the that Helio is cheaper, its for those guys who dont want to spent too much money but still want good performance.
