AnonD-356176, 08 May 2018Going to use A75 so nothing important.Do you know other stock cores that are more powerful than A75? It's the most powerful stock Core you can deploy.
Sure, going Costum yields the Mongoose M3 and Apple Monsoon. But that's only if you'll costumise the core.

Apple A11 has decrease performance in sustained peaks even though Apple fanboys seems to forget about it.

It can only maintain that crazy single core performance for short bursts.
And the GPU is already better for Snapdragon.
They've done a great job on the hardware. Just hope that they can match it with good software
Apple's A12 and Huawei's 980 are the only SoC that's going to be on TSMC's 7nm FinFET this year because of low yield and high cost... only flagship phones are worth the expensive tech. SD 955 might be on 7nm or may stay with 10nm depending on if TSMC can improve yield
Where the QSD 820/821/835 were battling Apple's A8 and A9 SoC's, the Apple A10 chip has gone uncontested..... let alone the Apple A11-Bionic.
Early benchmarks showed (finally) that Samsung Exynos 9 seriously crushing the Apple A10 and getting halfway to the A11-Bionic. Well, we know that to be a scam as the Exynos has a scheduler issue, so its slow to react and it eats up battery life poorly. In deed, if you're getting a Samsung S9 Variant, the QSD 845 chipset is the superior option. Yet, the QSD 845 is a mild improvement over the QSD 835, and still shy of the Apple A10 standard which is a far-cry from the Apple A11's level.
I'm hopeful with Huawei, that they might be the first to catch up to the Apple A11-Bionic chipset. Even if it takes an advanced 7nm lithography, we should be commending the advancement. Basically, a leap from netbook-tier performance to the ultrabook-tier performance crammed into our palms. I really want to see Qualcomm cower under pressure. More competition will lead to a healthier market.
Anonymous, 08 May 2018Phone with two days battery life with one charge is coming......That's if they don't cut down on the size of battery to save cost and slice of a few millimeters of thickness from the phone as usual.
Shanti Dope, 08 May 2018Right. This year's 10nm LPP chipsets are barely an improvement over last year's 10nm LPE ones... moreRight! P series next year will be a huge hit on the performance department and another camera innovation. (And... Notch, as always)
This year's 10nm LPP chipsets are barely an improvement over last year's 10nm LPE ones.
And this is actually a great chance of keeping up, since it will take the SnapDragon 855 with 7nm to catch up to this Kirin 980, meaning that the next Huawei P device after the P20 series will be just as powerful as next year's flagship phones, unlike this year when the P20 series are basically trumped by newer flagships due to an older generation chipset.
Great! This improves the efficiency of the battery more.
Waiting too for the Mate 20!
Can't wait for the 990. Should be even more powerful and energy efficient.
