Xiaomi 12, realme GT 2 Pro, OnePlus 10 and Motorola Edge 30 Pro – what do they have in common? Of course, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. We already know today that it will be at least as hot as its predecessor. This bodes ill for fans of flagships in 2022.
Nothing is stopping you from buying a flagship in 2021 like temperatures under load. Overheating is basically every top phone’s domain, and it doesn’t include the new iPhones. I had a problem with this myself on my Galaxy S21, which eventually led me to switch to the middle class, and then to the previous flagship with Snapdragon 865. I already know that in 2022 nothing will change for me.
Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is a very hot processor
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 shines in the benchmarks, sometimes even breaking the magic boundaries for number lovers. Over 1 million AnTuTu points look great. So what, because after a few minutes system performance is throttled by temperature. The thinner the flagship smartphone, the worse it is for the user. Especially the demanding user.
During the presentation, Qualcomm confirmed that this time he was able to “absorb” the hot mood of the new system. The new design was to be aided by 4nm lithography and only a 10% increase in performance over its predecessor. Not convinced from the start leaker Ice worldwhose tests showed the opposite. And I have no doubts who believe in this situation.
Example Motorola Edge X30This means – if I did not miss a thing, the first phone with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. Under heavy load, the smartphone heats up well – if you want to buy a hand warmer left over for a few thousand zlotys. 2022 is the year of the hot pioneer again.
I am very curious about how the leading companies with the global version of the software perform in the tests. We will have to wait for this. The forever premieres will kick off in March 2022, after which we’ll find out who did it best. I already have my candidates and in my opinion the least stuffy We will find in realme. Reasons to suspect? Take a look here:
Leading tags don’t have to be the best choice for players
I wouldn’t even try to say that buying a mannequin in the coming months is a mistake. There will surely be many users who will be pleased with them. Phones like Xiaomi 12, realme GT 2 Pro, OnePlus 10 Pro and others, of which there will be dozens, consist of more than just a processor.
Do you take a lot of photos? After that, you’ll likely be happy with how well the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 handles it — and at how quickly it’s done. Are you not hungry for mobile games? While browsing the web, social media, and watching movies or series, all of them are likely to remain pleasantly quiet.
Even worse, if you’re processing photos from your smartphone for private use, edit a short video (whether for yourself, your family, or maybe Reddit), or want to play the latest titles on the massive AMOLED panels of flagships – then you’re a goof. Maybe this prestige does not exist, or maybe I’m alone – I can’t rule it out.
However, it seems to me that the flagships are going in a slightly incomprehensible direction. If you select through the user profile shown above, you can only choose game monsters. However, this does not go well with my tie and jacket, and I love wearing both. And it seems to me that in the end I will not leave anything except the iPhone.
