Anonymous, 29 Sep 2018Very slow their SOC's arethe fastest and most advance you mean
Why only voice up the pros and doesn't have a single cons?! Can't believe it is perfect.
dude111, 28 Sep 2018Thats a press slide, probably from Huawei itself. They want to show the best numbers possible,... moreHmm.... plausible. I agree that Huawei wants to post the best results possible but in another post the kirin980 posted 9500 Multi. And THAT sounds more likely. Here is my source to the claim:

"To get an edge over the competitor" This is true. Here is why.
If huawei announce a flagship phone with snapdragon 710? Well, people will say "wtf! Huawei? You are robbing customers money".
Why do people say that? Because people compare with other flagships chipsets(SD835/845) and SD 710 has significantly lower performance and cost.
What if huawei launch a flagship phone with kirin 960? People have no idea. Most don't know kirin960 has similar performance to SD 710.
In this way, huawei can make more money buy using crap kirin chipset.
dude111, 28 Sep 2018Looks like their SoC will not even reach 10K on geekbench... http://www.twoeggz.com/news/11... moreI know what you mean. Really. But I am skeptical. ^^; perhaps there were other tasks running in the background? Limiting the multicore's preformance? I want to see other results of the same SoC just to be clear.
Anonym, 28 Sep 2018IMHO the only valid criticism is that they can't keep-up with Apple's CPUs, other than that th... moreApple can't keep up imagine a Ferrari measure it's performance only on one cylinder the same problems goes for Windows and Intel can't scale up on modern hardware beyond couple of cores
Vergil666, 27 Sep 2018the SD835 and 845 are both more powerfull than the Kirin 970 in terms of both cpu and gpu, so ... moreI believe as another person said here, it's just in co-relation to Apple. I don't mean Snapdragon's CPUs are Feeble. When comparing within the Android realms, they are absulutely the best~! But when I add apple into the formula, I am disappointed, as Apple uses *literally* gurgantuan sized cores. Look at the Vortex cores! You can place 4 Kryo 385 gold on them! And even the tempest cores beats a stock A73 in the same frequencies!) That's why I said Qualcomm's SoC is weak. In comparasion to Apple!
Looks like their SoC will not even reach 10K on geekbench...
And they reduce the High Performance Core speed too, from 2.6Ghz on their "press release" to 2.5, so it looks like these A76 really are power hungry.
TBH, HuaweiÂ’s SoCs seem to work pretty well with their UI. IÂ’ve been using a P10 (Kirin 960) and so far no slowdowns, in fact it got faster on some operations after updating to Oreo. Of course, results will vary depending on the user and how they use their phones. Kirin 980 might not be fastwr than the Apple A12 and the upcoming Snapdragon 855 and the next Exynos SoCs but in the end itÂÂ’s how the UI takes advantage of the SoC and other hardware.
Vergil666, 27 Sep 2018the SD835 and 845 are both more powerfull than the Kirin 970 in terms of both cpu and gpu, so ... moreIMHO the only valid criticism is that they can't keep-up with Apple's CPUs, other than that they are still very much at the top of Android-land. In fact, once you factor the "openness" factor (ie. ability to build ROMs from source), one can even claim they are just the undisputed leader in all mobile land.
AnonD-632062, 27 Sep 2018Earlier HiSilicon Kirins were infamous for having less-than-impressive GPUs, but they have vas... moreTrue, that happened with A11 aswell, it still runs circles around new Android chipsets and it was released in 2017. And A12 is out already. Apple does play their own game with chipsets, so you can understand that they refuse to sell them, but Huawei chipsets are not that impressive so this makes no sense.
Adul Al Salami Kebab, 27 Sep 2018It is also tailored for EMUI devices, if a device does not run EMUI it might not work properly... moreThat could also be true. But to make it simple, if you go with Android, it would be safest to go with Stock Android. And least bloated.
AnonD-797904, 27 Sep 2018Did other manufacturer(s) try to buy Kirin SoCs from Huawei?They have sold Kirin tablet SoC's to other Chinese brands.
People just can't hardly move when they know that they can't stop the envasion of huawei technologies. Pitty on you guys, you only know how to speak but huawei just keep in silent and let their flagships speaks. EMUI is very usable I used to be a sony user and sony are good and durable. But when I switched to huawei I found the real value of having a smart phone with you. My P10 plus just cant do most of the things I want. To mention some is its ability to capture send documents. Fastastic job Huawei dear. I love the Huawei P20 pro but still cant find a good reason to replace my P10 plus.
