SD 435 (28nm ) in redmi 4 gets 11.5 hour something in web browsing , and SD 625 (14nm ) in redmi note 4 gets
Around 17 hours on web browsing with similar battery and bigger screen..
And SD 625 clock speed is much higher than SD 435..
SD 450 in redmi 5 gets 13.5 hour or so in web browsoing with only """"3300mah battery"""" and bigger screen than redmi 4 with 4000mah.. This is significant improvement in efficiency and a more direct comparison relatively although clock speed is higher and screen is bigger here
Now All of the above are octa cores based on low power and low performance cortex a53 cores exclusively 8x A53 ..
This SD 660 in Nokia 7 plus is powerful and has 4 x coretx A73 based cores which are meant to deliver performance and aren't power efficient..
Look at performance numbers in geekbench your SD 435 - single core 659 , multi - 1820 , this SD 660 gets single core 1619 and multi - 5893
In multi that is more than 200% faster than SD 435 ..
So you can't compare it with SD 660..
And SD 660 can't even be compared it with SD 630/625..

I don't see it as very negative, given how high it places in sunlight legibility and contrast ratio. You get what you pay for with the price.
These new chips are nowhere near as efficient as manufacturers like to claim. My phone has a last gen SD435 with a 4000mAh battery & I get well over 12 hours browsing. Admittedly it's a 720P screen, but this thing should be eating it alive
[deleted post]LOL Where were you for the last 4 years? Android is the stabler OS right now and iOS is buggy as hell.. Whatever suits your ignorance my friend
AnonD-737474, 23 Apr 2018It has FM RadioBut doesnt seem to be enabled. No stock radio app is present. I tried downloading from google play store but they are all internet radio apps

Ooh my God bootloader again??? Do you understand by the term pure android?? Sometimes I don't understand guys like you!!
JovenAlocado, 22 Apr 2018Any news about Radio FM?It has FM Radio
For all you haters on this phone (looking at you Don Alex and brandstifter), find me another $500 phone that has Bluetooth 5, FM radio, a headphone jack, and USB type C, then we'll talk.
I was hoping it to be at least a bit exciting, but from the reading it is just expensive meh phone.. :(

You have nothing but an opinion. Only the stuck android and design and the experience uppon this device is builded are more worthy then all xiaomi together. But i do not get the struggle, what's your problem? You like xiaomi micipoc mic toc mno, oneplus fivehundred, cicopico?. Buy them, who's stoping you? In the meantime, get a gripp. You need it.

As I said before 2 months- Xiaomi Mi note 3 is much better smartphone and cost only 300$.Where are Nokia fans now who said that I am wrong?!
- too big
- no water protection
- locked bootloader
- everything else
The first two cons ruin this phone to me. But for somebody who doesn't leave their room it might be an excellent option.
MKL, 22 Apr 2018Samsung S8 and other devices you listed, are they going to get updates as long as N7+ will get... moreYou'll see from previous posts on this pager that I bought an Xperia Z1 about a year and half ago.
It never rcvd a single update and still runs quite well considering its ancient snd 800 soc and puny 2GB RAM. Storage is almost full as well and has no security issues.
Updates are good, but these monthly updates are just a cure for tech geeks OCD

A year and half ago I thought the Moto G was a good deal. Probably was, but it looked like a rip off compared to a 120 usd Xperia Z1. Even the much improved Z3 was cheaper than the Moto.
