At this point any chipset this fast will produce a lot of heat. It's only as much thermal mass available yet we have chipsets that pump higher clocks.

You do not see same complaints about mi11 pro and ultra.

No benefit.
Like 801, 821, 855+, 865+, 865++ (aka 870).

Yup, A14 bionic still beats it handily. Not very impressed...

Even the ASUS ROG Phone 5 with an AeroCooler plug-in fan couldn't dissipate enough high temperature when Notebookcheck.net made a review about it: https://www.notebookcheck.net/ROG-Phone-5-Asus-is-only-partially-able-to-tame-the-Snapdragon-888.532693.0.html

Mediatek sux, 28 Jun 2021Heater +No kidding. I had the Mi Ultra 11 for about a month and had to send it back due to overheating problems. It's so bad!!

When Qualcomm copy the Exynos 9820 rather than the Exynos 2100.

I wonder what Qualcom is thinking here! 888 is plenty fast already for almost all the work case scenarios. Why overclock like this and make it worse!!

Will smartphones finally be able to fry eggs?

Mini heater

I am guessing that Qualcomm would he introducing another high end/flagship processor, before the end of the year.

Tough honestly i'm a MediaTek fan,
I still hope Qualcomm will improve innovatively for Snapdragon fans/users. (positive)

SD888 already has horrible battery, this will be th Worst

At this point, I wonder if Qualcomm and Samsung addressed the vanilla 888's chipset overheating issue. If they didn't, I may as well skip this year's flagship smartphones and wait for the 4nm successor next year.
