Vegetaholic, 30 Aug 2017Nothing special, gpus are weak, another typical MT chipset for low end users That's exactly their target. They know they can't compete in the high end segment, hence they're looking for air to breath in low end. Their "high end" X30 becomes mid ranger in a few moments after SD660 benchmark comes out since both score about the same overall.

These are super cool.
There's another small but important difference between the P30 vs. P23/P25: P30 supports UFS2.1 flash storage (also, the only DRAM type it supports is LPDDR4X; they've dropped DDR3 support).
This is important because all the cutting-edge fast+low-power flash+dram chips are UFS2.1/LPDDR4X. Switching from eMMC to UFS is equivalent to the switch from parallel ATA (remember those crappy ribbon cables?) to SATA in desktop/laptop computers.
(personally I don't get why the mobile-specific flash industry bothered developing UFS & didn't just switch directly to NVMe; it's faster & requires fewer components).

Нl, 29 Aug 2017Dualcore isnt and 8core is ? Wtf ! DC is best for android !dual core is best for android? not anymore. why i dont see any oem make dual core? at least quad core chipset available even on the very2 low end smartphone nowadays. there are thing called "Multitasking".
what do i do with my phone in my daily life. this usually occur at the same time:
1) downloading ROM using firefox
2) listening to music
3) background social apps running
4) playing online games
5) using Opera VPN
i dont see dual core will be efficient to do those tasks, especially on android.

adonwenas, 29 Aug 2017 why people always question the cortex? whereas soc points are in the process. this is using ... moreBut they don't use pure A53 and that's the whole point. It's ok if you have some A53, but you also need some A73 to drive the powerful tasks, A53 is just not enough for everything. If the SD615 wasn't purely made out of A53, it wouldn't overheat when loading updates or web pages.
A53, after years and years we still have A53. Give us at least 1 A75 for EACH processor available, it will speed up things massively

my friend's xperia XA Ultra using Helio P10, the battery only 2700mah but still have longer battery life than his previous zenfone 3000mah and my current phone 3000mah despite of XA Ultra having 6" screen. chipset is not the only component that burn battery.
Do not buy mediatek, in games it will show device not supported on many games and drains battery very quick, not efficient, only cheaper
Nikola, 29 Aug 2017Just give as DualCore A73 on 3 Ghz turbo and standard speed 2,5 ghz!! it is not efficient thats why oem moving to (mostly) octa core. even iphone move from dual core to quad core.
