Walter C. Dornez, 21 Jul 2018Oh yeah. True. I guess you should wait for now My wait is over, oh well, in a negative way. Meizu 16 Plus is coming with SD845, but with 6.5" display and 3570 mAh battery. No for me.

I don't see any 16 Plus (not even in rumor). What's the work to be done for the updates? I can bear with a manual one. Meizu is available in India although limited.
I almost like everything about an iPhone, but iOS. May sound ironical since most people like iPhones because of iOS. The video format support is still limited. Bluetooth may or may not work. The media transfer to the phone is so difficult (even transferring a custom ringtone needs work). Backup is clumsy unless you go for a premium iCloud account (and then, it costs you data). Exporting contacts is not easy. Too many limitations; truly, a walled garden.

As far as I can tell, and also depending where you live, the Meizu 16 Plus seems like a good fit, problem is, it's a good OS but needs work when it comes to updates.
Hm, a phone with huge size, battery, and a nice and functional OS.....as far as I can tell, the iPhone X Plus fits that pretty well
Walter C. Dornez, 19 Jul 2018Yes, but we ate taking about the 710, ate we not? Many people were hoping for itWell, we hoped. I would look for a phablet now that has 845, 6/8 GB RAM, 128/256 GB storage, great battery life and smooth OS. Looks like OnePlus 6 and Asus Zenfone 5z may meet my expectations at a budget, but I'm not quite sure about battery life of either of them (both have 3300 mAh). But if I decide to have battery case, one of these may be good. Let's see whether some vendor can come up with the specs above with a giant screen and humongous battery life. :)

If you had read my previous comments well (which you have replied to), you wouldn't behave like an LG fanboy (or an LG rep). Let me remind you: Bootloop, only one gen OS upgrade, extremely poor battery life...these are not qualities of a flagship. And, I'm sure LG OS is responsible for screwing my Samsung 10x pro 64 GB microSD card as well. There is an IR remote in G4 that works with my LG TV only, and is compatible with a very limited number of hardware that I don't have. LG TV, fridge, washing machine, AC probably yes again, but an LG phone = NEVER again for me.

With your fingers? Wow. Again, hardly common user experience. So yeah, it is better to have better CPU and more RAM. For you, because you are willing to pay for that to have those 3D modeling app running optimal. You are still not making case for anyone else though...
You seem to not understand the concept of value for money factor. I'm not going to explain it to you. Just do some reading. People who buy Apple or Samsung flagships are not doing so because of value for money factor. They are doing so despite it. Because they value some other things more, perhaps they just want to have the very best that is available or they go after something they are used to. Apple users are like that I guess.

And here, better CPUs do better. So, I'll still say: Better to have better CPU and more RAM. Value for money? Are you serious in claiming that people who buy S9+ or iPhone X or XZ2 Premium don't value their money? The definition of value is different for different people for different needs and in different circumstances. I am already using SD808 with 100+ apps in my phone, and I won't like to downgrade my CPU. And, 845 >> 636 for the apps I use it seems, PERIOD.

No, for most people it's not, because of poor 'value for money' factor that top spec smartphones have. Most people don't use your specific software (very CPU demanding but not games). Again, out of curiosity, what software? I use productivity and educational apps myself and they are hardly CPU dependent. Certainly not to the point of making me buy modern SD 8xx phone 'because 6xx may be not enough'.
"What makes you believe that 6xx CPUs will give "smoother" experience than 8xx CPUs? I don't see any logic. "
Perhaps that is because it's a statement you just came up with. That not something I claim.

There are not so many widely popular aps that are CPU demanding to the point they offer vastly different experience for SD 8xx users in contrast to 6xx users. If you are into mobile gaming, then buy gaming smartphone. If you are not (like, you know, most grown up people), you are interested in smooth android experience mostly which 8-core 6xx snapdragon is perfectly capable of providing.
Walter C. Dornez, 17 Jul 2018Indeed. Try telling that to those in the comments right now though"Pretty good" is a very non-specific phrase. Keeping all other specs same, if two phones have 636 and 845, will both perform identically if I keep opening apps one after another, typically, the CPU dependent ones? Well, I don't think so. I would rather experience a significant difference.
Nicolas F, 16 Jul 2018But why do you need a flagship level CPU? Do you render videos on the smartphone or what? xDWhen vendors offer a flagship level CPU, there is a reason for that. If the app is CPU dependent (and not RAM dependent), a better CPU makes the device perform better.
