    Guys, I'm from the future. Guess What. Huawei Lied.

    The Kirin 980 while very powerful is a joke, compared to what Huawei was teasing and boasting.

    Forget the Apple A12. Forget the SD 855 or the Exynos 9820, about to be released soon. It is only slight ahead of the SD 845 and can barely compare against the Note9 in some benchmarks.

    This was such false marketing from Huawei. "Faster than A12 Bionic", they said.

    Here, see for yourself.

              if i recall they announced that their kirin 980 is 37% faster then their kirin 970 which is nearly as powerfull as SD835. nearly not better. apple's A11 is still the faster then SD845 and exynos 9810 which are way more powerfull then the kirin 970. and apple's own A12 is 30% faster then the previous generation. what kind of math is this. i can't understand. 970 is underpowered by 35-40% then the SD 845 which is almost 20-25% slower then the A11. then how can it beat something that is way above its league.... i m curious to learn about this new kind of calculation huawei is doing

                    It measures disparate things that are only relevant to different people.

                    Gamaers care about GPU, but not CPU (very much), for example. CPU is much more important for the rest of the users, yet antutu thinks that GPU on antutu is important making Qualcomm fanboysnthink their PoS is even on the same level as better SoCs...

                        as long as freedom of code is a choice and as long as there are smart developers that understand the difference and the power behind free software foundation and open source.

                        free software and open source platform devices will always be more popular than closed once!

                              So far we got the usual bunch in android: Snapdragon (Excellent performance. not very powerful CPU s), Exynos (Spectacular endurance. decent performance, Poor GPU s), Mediatek (good for the going cheap. horrible performance and decent-ish endurance), Kirin (the best ISP I saw. decent performance and good endurance. Excluding 980 as it's not tested in real life scenarios yet), Pinecone (The average guy), Broadcom (Worse than Mediatek in performance. poor support) and others.
                              we need ANOTHER competitor that will make us android users want to use that SoC maker. with exceptional performance, excellent endurance, impressive GPUs, Spectacular ISP. and everything. and support by the developers. AND making the handset cheaper.

                                Huawei can sure claim a lot. And they will focus on Apple as their main rival which is not really smart...

                                  apple A12 bionic claims that they improve their chipset by 50% faster perfomance than A11 so i compute their antutu benchmark score, A11 has 246,000 score, so I multiply it by 1.5 then the result is 369,000 near at 363,000 score, and this kirin 980 claim a 37% faster in its predesesor, the score of antutu of 970 is 210,000 so i multiply it by 1.37 and the result is 287,000, therfore i conclude its not faster than A12 bionic in terms of performance, but faster in other feature like, WIFI,modem,etc..

                                      Very doubtful. While Xiaomi is making the right moves by emulating Apple (sometimes a bit too much), Huawei seems to be aiming to be the next Samsung, with their idiotic marketing trolling, and now unfounded claims.
