TB86, 02 Mar 2017So the kirin 960 does equals with the SD 835.Good to know.well, probably, but dont forget software is the main part. Mate 9 lost against OP3/T in speed tests, just becausr huawei puts heavy skin and slows down android.
Chunchunmaru, 02 Mar 2017Single core performance is same as 821! SD 6xx midrangers are much better.Why buy SD 6xx midrangers when SD820 phones are available for $200-220?
And surely SD820 phones will drop to below $180 in June-july.
Hofmann, 02 Mar 2017Before 6 months ago, I said about the A10 Fusin chipset that it will be even better than snapd... moreSingle core wise? you are correct. I managed to mod an iPhone 7 to run Stock Android. (for THE CURIOUS ones, it was 7.1.1) and it ran quite well when it came to single core tasks. (roughly 2900 SC and about 5420 MC) and kept the same preformance on multi. I didn't upload any research. just did some tweaking. and then reinstalled iOS because an iPhone SHOULDN'T RUN Android. It was just "what if" thingy.

I hope I am not disappointed. I hope I am wrong but I have a nasty feeling the S8 is going to be a disappointment. I really want to be wrong about that but I am very doubtful quite honestly.
Single core performance of Qualcomm is very poor. Or we can say that Qualcomm is 2-3 years behind apple in single core.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2017The One Plus 3T comes with 6GB LPDDR4 RAM and costs half the price of the S8. The Huawei Mate ... moreDo you still not understand the differences between LPPDR4 vs LPDDR4X? Its like you saying 20mp f/2.4 camera is better compare to 12mp f/1.7 camera. The one with f/1.7 is obviously better. You are looking at the numbers instead looking at the technology type.
Julliard, 02 Mar 2017The 6gb ram in C9 Pro is LPDDR3 type. The 4gb ram that's going to be in S8 will be LPDDR4X typ... moreFaster RAM cannot make up for the lack of it's existence. This is a cynical cheapskate manufacturing costs saving antic and that is not acceptable on a phone that costs around or upwards of 1000 Euros. Especially when there will be 6 GB variants in some regions but not others.
Claudiu.Lucian, 02 Mar 2017And Kirin, Mediatek have stock ARM cores, not shit custom cores like Samsung, Snapdragon... Or... moreI don't think so. the so called Kryo 280 cores have the same IPC as a cortex A57. just tuned up and modded. I do believe though that the Hurricane cores inside the A10 fusion is based off on A73, while the x2 Zephyr are based on A53. which is pretty much identical to the Pinecone X950 and Kirin 960 if they weren't modded~ this is a mere speculation though. the A73 naturally is an excellent core. so imagine what happens if you mod it? you get Hurricane core with over 3500 SC score in geekbench!
Single core performance is same as 821! SD 6xx midrangers are much better.
Am I the only one that's really impressed with the OP3T? I mean,forget the price comparison of the phone, the performance coming from it is impressive regardless of the price of the phone.

The Huawei Mate 9 is also available with 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM and is again cheaper than the S8. Then to cap it off it is being stated in various rumors there will be a 6GB version of the S8 but only in China and\or Korea. Sorry but when paying top prices for a phone I expect to specs. not cheapskate cost cutting exercises.

Ever stop to think that iOS is customised greatly inside out to blend seamlessly with the A10 chip thus producing extremely high speeds? Android is open source so it's not tailored for any particular chipset like iOS is.
Obi Wan Kenobi, 02 Mar 2017I agree. When you pay flagship money, you expect flagship specs (atleast for the sake of futur... moreThe 6gb ram in C9 Pro is LPDDR3 type. The 4gb ram that's going to be in S8 will be LPDDR4X type that reduce voltage to 0.6v. Not to be confused with LPDDR4 which use 1.1v. So, basically the new ram will save 45% energy. Most of the phone in the market with 6gb ram are of the LPDDR3 and LPPDR4 type.
Samsung's LPPDR4X is the latest of the latest ram technology that you can get in the market right now. I would be surprised if you actually opt for the lower class 6gb LPPDR4 ram. Although, rumors said Samsung already manufactured 8gb LPDDR4X ram but no news where they using it. Though I reckon it would be super expensive if they were to use it. Latest hardware never comes cheap.
-DEXTER, 02 Mar 2017everyday Samsung galaxy s8 has a leak or something , kind of annoying though . I'm sorryTo DEXTER:
Same as the S5, S6 and S7. Are you new to the phone world?
Makimaki11, 02 Mar 2017We will have to wait for SN840. Then we will see if higher clocks mean better single core. It ... moreAnd Kirin, Mediatek have stock ARM cores, not shit custom cores like Samsung, Snapdragon... Or are they just rebranded A73 cores???
Not much more powerful than the Exynos 8890, quite happy with my S7 Edge Exynos in that case to keep going with it until a truly powerful SoC arrives.
