Seriously with the pace smartphones evolve a 2 month old smartphone would be considered old. It's getting out of hand!
S8 and G6 are just a couple of months old and there are already rumours and talks about S9 and G7?
Remember what happened with notebomb 7?
wanna see the upcoming news about LG bring up all SD845 for LG G7, and galaxy S9 using one year old SD836.
Rob N, 29 May 2017Why don't Samsung use their SoC instead of qualcom poor designed and inefficient chips or must... morePatents, rules, such things causes Samsung to opt for snapdragon in US...if not,they might get sued..
AlienNextDoor, 29 May 2017Exactly!!! No one gives a crap about VR. It failed miserably on PC, let alone phones where ... moreyou are right, you know I have a galaxy j7 prime and I only play talking tom run but while playing I always encounter draggy on the game and I don't know why but on my oppo neo 5s with a snapdragon chip inside and it does play the game well.. by the way my top score was just 1443874 :D just x59
It may not make much sense but LG should tie up with Google to make some new series phones with pixel os as they have worked in past together. The google os is wasted on ugly handsets like pixel. LG G6 is a good device but still it's struggling in sales. LG need to come up with innovative ideas to survive.
Sunil, 29 May 2017LG should grab first production of SD 845 and take revenge on samsungnot possible when samsung facilities produce the SD835 chips, and if they produce 845 then no luck for LG
AlienNextDoor, 29 May 2017Exactly!!! No one gives a crap about VR. It failed miserably on PC, let alone phones where ... moreYeah, right... the technology that will allow simulation of real world scenarios, like surgeries, driving and experiments, give information about the objects that it sees (speed, % of progress, species name and many others) is useless.
If I'm LG, I will form an alliance with others manufacturer to produce own SoC rather than solely rely on Qualcomm. 1st step took over Mediatek & from there create new SoC which better than SD in term of performance & power efficiency... Just 3 SoC.. Premium, Mid Range & Entry level..
Well, that the V30 will use the SD835 it's already positive, considering that the G6 use the last year's SD821. And for next year, it will be really interesting to see who will use the SD845 first, if it will be the S9 again or the G7? Obviously really looking forward.
Anonymous, 29 May 2017Just give me removable battery. That's the most important.
I don't care abut the virtual re... moreExactly!!!
No one gives a crap about VR. It failed miserably on PC, let alone phones where it has even less practical applications.
The ONLY reason to buy phones with even better CPU and GPU is to play even more demanding games. Whoever buys for different reasons does it simply for bragging rights. Also, games need to catch up. Right now even the Snapdragon 801 plays every game without a problem.
