    What's up with those people who says that Star Rail is heavier than Genshin. 😭 It's NOT lmfao. Try running it on lower-end device, and you'll see that in most cases Star Rail runs much lighter and smoother on low-end devices.
    Yes, in most cases. The only times Star Rail will much heavier is when you fight some bosses, or when you activate the ulti of some chars like Jing Yuan. Other than than it's far lighter and more potato-phone friendly than Genshin.

      Lazy android game devs not gonna utilize it. Hope emulation community get stronger day by day and optimize more . like winlator and all.

          Good CPU, but wasted on android.

          Just like giving a race car to a granny. Wasted potential..

          But android fanboys always blame the application fault.. then in the end blame the developers for not supporting their phone.

            OEM can easily put a $200 SoC inside while rest of the phone is worth $70, then sell this phone for $350.

            There is zero chance 8sg3 is cheaper than SoC like 8+g1 , that costed back then $120. It has latest X4 core and TSMC 4nm process

            Demanding stronger chip that also is fabbed on better / fancy process is completely stupid if main reason is game.

            8g4 is going to cost even more. Custom cores + 3nm fab, shall reach $200 or even more.

            Asking for stronger SoC, higher RR screen, more ram for what? Games

              -first Tegra X1 aka Logan
              -second Tegra X1 in switch aka Eristra
              -third Tegra X1 in switch V2 aka Mariko.

              Mariko switch V2 is more efficient than switch v1, and Tegra X1 used in it is like twice more efficient that's why sometime newer switch like oled one has double battery life compare to OG switch, and even newer soc in games like Totk it use up to 6W when pushed.

              Here is in depth review of both Tegra soc in switch.

                  My point cpu and Gpu didn't make Soc expensive, other things like NPU, Isp, Modem etc made soc bigger hence it became expensive and proof is 8s is still powerfull but cheap because it focus only on perfomance.

                  So yes 8s has everything to do with this discussion, unless you random reply people and don't read.

                    This is about the fact 8g3 costs more than 4x price 865 costed in 2020.
                    Bringing 8sg3 to convensation is useless.

                    In the end people that use now phones with 865 and 8g3 do same stuff.

In handheld mode, the CPU runs at the same speed it does in TV mode, while the GPU runs at 40% or 50% up to the developers. The new model of the Switch and the Switch OLED can play demanding games such as the Witcher 3 for about 4 to 5 hours in handheld mode. Do the math.

So no, most people want 8g for various reasons, and upgrading from the already overpowered CPU/GPU for current apps/games in android or iOS is not a (need), it's just marketing.

                              If Snapdragon is so powerful why don't you give us real games. Alien Isolation and grid motorsport are great but we need more.

                              Port far cry 3, resident evil 2 remake and GTA v and then we are talking.

                                    YourLocalPhoneCritic, 12 May 2024None of this would matter if we can't get x86 PC games... moreCalm down .

                                    The GPU can run x86 apps or games in 3 ways without any help or coding it'll be close to 60-80% alone. And yes it'll only make sense in Dex or Android 15 desktop mode.

                                      This is exactly why the Xperia 1 VI should eait before launch. 2x flagships running the same chip is no beuno.
