Vegetaholic, 17 Jul 2017Pff, not announced already outdated, g71-12m is a joke 8895... moredon't say bullsh.. my friend, Samsung always has priority with MALI Graphics.

Pff, not announced already outdated, g71-12m is a joke 8895 has g71-20m a73 is all around, so basically no improvement in processing from 960, move along guys, this chip is rubish

Millimeters' be damned, I hope this chip is powerful, energy efficient, beast.

ShadowJaiz, 01 Jul 2017The processor become smaller and smaller. snapdragon rumor ... moremost probably no , theory 5nm is smallest , but in real world only can get to 6nm , so its a no for now

Interesting.

if Huawei do stick to high capacity of battery (4000 mah)
5.9 - 6 inch display. I might giv it a go.

g71 with 12 cores should be good enough for heavy gaming....
my note 4 always heat up so high that I will let him rest in peace by end of this year.

The processor become smaller and smaller. snapdragon rumor next processor is 8nm. is there a possibilities that it will become 1nm?

I'm using Mate9 since December last year. the reasons that I bought it is the battery and camera. with honestly, Its performance really makes me feel impressive though. It is the best android phone I've ever had. sometimes it makes me feel the same grade with the Apple's performance devices. Now I would completely suggest my friend to buy Huawei's products in the near future if they've asked my opinions. Huawei and Apple are the company that make me realized of thought about the real quality that you will get from their products. "Real life using is Always Real".

Never faced any lag! My friend at least for me, Am talking about something that I have! I told you any tech person will tell you Kirin processors starting with 960 are the real deal! Please don't defend your Snapdragon so much technology is changing and Snapdragons are really getting competion from other processors!

AnonD-145316, 30 Jun 2017It's okay I get you, but the problem of people like you, yo... moreSamsungs phones lagging is a software issue, which xda has already fixed. The only problem I see in Kirin 960 is its future proofing. It's good now, but what about in a year or two? Will it still be that good? I think it will age much sooner than Snapdragon and Exynos SoCs. You know, not everyone takes a new phone every year. And those rumours about K970 going from MP8 to MP12? That's a really small improvement imo.
Still, I'm eager to see every new piece of tech. Might get surprised one day.

For me as tech enthusiast, I always prefer real life performance of a device because that is what we do with our Smartphones. We don't use our gadgets on benchmarks, I can give an example of Samsung phones, they are always good on benchmarks and on their early months of use. But after around 6months of use they just become crap! Lagging every now and then and remember they have those Snapdragon and Exynos that you praise so much!

If u go to the shop and choose HUAWEI phones, and all of them are using Kirin 960, would u be very confused by their market strategy? Even the HONOR 9 also uses it even tho HONOR is for midrangers

Just take a look at GPU benchmarks, on screen performance. There are many better performers. I understand that it's the fastest phone you had and it's more than enough for you. Would be for most of us. That doesn't mean it's the best of there. It just means it's good enough.

Anonymous, 30 Jun 2017Kirin 960 is a beast but only in CPU department. GPU lacks ... moreIf you have encountered Mate 9 pro which is another version of mate 9 that has QHD screen with kirin 960 you will understand what am talking about. No smartphone came close to it's performance! It was only bested by iPhone 7plus. My friend any tech person will admit to you Kirin 960 is on its league, Mate 9 is the smoothest and fastest phone around and you can't go wrong with gaming!! It is the most smoothest phone in heavy gaming. So to me the GPU is just fine!

Quite looking forward for the Mate 10 and Kirin 970, and although they will be launched together, so one equal the other, but they will be interesting even individually. Because as a Mate 10 aesthetically, Huawei will definitely push the bar as much as they can. And as a Kirin, the 970 will absolutely give a run to the SD835 and to the Exynos 8895.
