    What takes travel backpack miles ahead of the traditional backpack is the daypack added to them. The daypack is a small backpack in itself and can be used to carry things for a hiking day trip. It can even be used s a fanny pack if you intend to tour a place of attraction. However,

      Here's why a 3+5 configuration is best balanced:

      A 0+8 configuration gives you maximum efficiency but the lowest performance. 1+7 configuration gives you very high efficiency and some performance. 2+6 gives high efficiency and decent performance. 3+5 gives grear performance and good performance. 4+4 gives great performance and decent efficiency. 5+3 gives great performance and low efficiency. 6+2 gives great performance and low efficiency. 7+1 gives great performance and very low efficiency. 8+0 gives maximum performance but lowest efficiency.

          To be honest SD735 will be even faster than SD845.
          Chances are really high this time.

              I think 2+6 is best approach. With bigger display and split screen feature. Many people are using 2 task in foreground simultaneously. Consider this also. And what does 0.04 GHz make difference in performance, I guess negligible.

Snapdragons lead not only android but all cellphone bionics by a considerable margin. Where bionics lead is in exchange with putting in more traansistors and spending more energy like in a12x. But this does not count. Even some adrenos , some generations behind are on par or leading the most recent apple's gpus.
                Snapdragons are nominally behind only in single-threaded loads in cpu. Which may be the objective truth, or seriously challenged. But since no-one is undertaking any tests to find out what mobile cpus can do under full and sustained loads , we will remain with this uncertainty.

                  For a single task, having a faster single thread performance is much more impactful than having more threads. For instance, a 1x 4GHz Core is faster than a 2x 2GHz Core for running that task. However, computers, operating systems, and applications have become Dual-Threaded for around two decades now. Most things will benefit mostly from the single-thread performance, followed by the two-thread performance, followed by the four-thread performance, and lastly by any multithread performance.

                  Android as an OS was sloppy when it came to dual-thread behaviour pre-4.2 in 2012.
                  Improvements to make it more four-thread and multi-thread happy didn't become more optimised until Android 4.4. Despite this, there was another issue: multiple complexes. Samsung was the only one pushing the envelope here, but things didn't improve until there was much more optimisations coming directly from ARM, Qualcomm, and Google Pixel. Check the AOSP GitHub for more info. Essentially it was only in 2017 with Android 5.1 where big.LITTLE was behaving.

                  Despite all that, developers can be inexperienced, rushing, or simply lazy.
                  The biggest impact/efficiency you will have is with a 1+7 configuration. That's something like 1x Cortex A75 and 7x Cortex A55 (soon to be Cortex A78 and Cortex A58). However, you will often notice some sluggish behaviour. Stepping that up to a 2+6 configuration will solve almost all of that. And if you can spare some efficiency, you can completely eliminate that sluggishness with a 3+5 configuration. Why?
                  It's because the first two threads will become saturated with tasks to run for a demanding Application and a demanding OS task, and there will be a few extra tasks left over. It won't be enough to require four big cores, but three in almost all scenarios will be enough. That leaves the SoC with 5 little cores to run the less demanding or less important tasks. This 3+5 configuration will use slightly more power than a 2+6 configuration, but there's little to complain besides that. A 4+4 configuration will use even more power for no practical/real-world gains.

                  Until we get further improvements from ARM, Qualcomm, Google AOSP, and Android SDK... there won't be much need to go for a 4+4 configuration. Unless developers become much more skilled and have their Apps become better at multi-threading, and consumers start pushing their computing much harder by using multitasking more aggressively. I think it will happen, but its a gradual shift. And just like how it took 5 years (2007) to go from Single-core to Dual-core (2012), and how it took 5 years (2012) to go from Single-Complex to Dual-Complex (2017). I think it will take 5 years to go from Dual-Complex (2017) to proper Multi-threading (2022). I think its necessary for it to happen since we are at the end of Moore's Law (65nm, 45m, 32nm, 28nm, 20nm, 14nm, 10nm, 7nm, 5nm).

                    the question will the gpu reach at least 835 level? the 710 is around 810 - 820 level. The snapdragon 700 series is actually a downgraded 800 series , especially on the gpu part

                      Kirin 810 competitor. It's the best upper midrange SoC.

                          Qualcomm should focus on giving their Adreno GPUs a huge improvement! And I don't mean that we don't need any improvement on CPU side, no, we do...
                          But the GPU is the thing that sucks so bad in Android world, compared to iOS world.

                            One core at 2.36 Ghz and other at 2.32 Ghz...lol. I mean why bother running them at different speeds when 0.04 Ghz will have almost negligible impact on performance and heat.

                              Can someone tell me if 1+1+6 is better CPU configuration for Android?

                                The most expensive SD730 phone is around $400 cheaper than a standard flagship phone (not taking into account some budget offerings like the K20 Pro).

                                Plus, if they lessen the gap of performance between their mid tier and high end GPUs, then it'd no longer make sense to get a flagship phone when a mid ranger would be more than powerful enough already for people's basic demands.

                                        Still using a Motorola phone with Snapdragon 410. Will buy new phone very soon with Snapdragon 660 or 710. MediaTek never again.
