People these days want to do on their smartphone what ever its capable for. Smartphone is like a swiss knife, it can do everything but not the best in everything. There are far more precise navigation products, or camera, or gaming, or whatever. But that's not the point of smartphone to have the best possible experience. Smartphone biggest atribute is his practicallity and he's always with us. Even when we have to go to toillet lol... Who brings their laptop or PC on toillet? I think you're completly missing the point od smartphone. It's not meant to be compare with devices who are specially designed to do one operation but on highest possible level.
    Smartphonea are like jack of all trades but master of none.

          r3c, 26 May 2022The point that the xperia xzs is from 2017 does blame nowad... moreI stand corrected.
          I recently had some (non?)quality time with Mi 11x, enabled with Snapdragon 870, 8GB RAM and tried the 1080p960 mode. And it was fake. The rotating fan was spreading colours all over the place.
          Hell, if it screws even a constant 2 colour scenario, the rubbish feature doesn't even deserve to be there.

          My own LG G8x on the other hand, tops out at 1080p240 (also 4K60) and however less it may seem, its 100% genuine. So, I thought every phone works like this. I was wrong.
          Sad to say, but misinformation spreads from official spec sheets now.

            Samath N8 808 owner, 21 May 2022Come on, the phone you're quoting is from 2017. I reme... moreThe point that the xperia xzs is from 2017 does blame nowadays Phones even more.

            Fact is that there are only the xzs and some galaxy s9 variants that use that cached cam sensor that can do REAL 960fps.

            ALL other phones at the market to this day make maximum 240-480 fps , rhe rest is quirky ai nonesense that produces unreal extra frames. And for small things like rain or fire or dust it looks crap in comp to my 5 yr old xzs.

            Yes ufs 3.1 and new snapdragons could do it , its just people buying new phones like stupid anyways. So the manufacturers have no reason to make better features and software.

                I think I`ll get the asus rog 6 coming from rog 2 among the upcoming flagship phones just because they`re qualcomm`s partner, which means they`ll fully utilize and optimize the chipset for every component of the phone just like the rog 2 back then

                  However, the Apple A13-Bionic which came in the 2019 iPhone 11 is impressive. It was a full 1-2 generations ahead of Android which at the time had the QSD 855 chipset.

                  In order for Qualcomm to catch-up, they've simply been making their chips hotter and hotter in these 3-years. Which is actually bad in my opinion. I do not care about Synthetic Benchmarks, but it is good marketing, that is why Qualcomm focuses on it. So maybe they caught up with the QC 8g1, maybe not. You can look at the geekbench if you want. Meanwhile, Apple hasn't really upgraded the A13-Bionic in performance, it has been focusing on efficiency with the A14 and A15 chipsets (they run cooler and longer, but have thirsty-5G modems and 120Hz displays).

                  Later in 2022 the iPhone 14 is supposed to come with the Apple A16-Bionic, and this time they are using a new architecture (ARMv9 ?). So I expect there to be a significant performance increase over the A15/A14/A13. That means Apple will once again be another 1-2 generations ahead of Qualcomm. On top of this, the A16 is being developed alongside the new Apple M2, M2 Pro, and M2 Max chipsets, so expect great performance there too.

                  Again, max speed isn't everything. Stability, efficiency, latency, features, and so many other factors are more useful for the users. On top of that, there are many aspects to a phone than just the chipset; I would choose a Samsung A52-s always ahead of the Moto Edge X30.

                    Anonymous, 23 May 2022it's not in bar even with A13 lol.I don't know why u don't learn about how Gpu and CPU works.. I really feel sorry for you.. even 888's peak Gpu and CPU performance of higher than a13 . Stop being in dark . Ignorance is curse

Even 8 gen 1's Gpu is more capable than a15 Bionic's Gpu. The problem is it's not stable. Just learn what is peak performance and what is stable performance

                        Since makers started to address the efficiency part lately, all we need now is some porting, environment support and system compatibility to enjoy those sweaty pixels on a portable machine! 🌟

                          forhad-61, 24 May 2022Oh? Can your ARM run Crysis, lel. Yes it can.
                          The Remastered ("better") version of Crysis 1/2/3 is available on the Nintendo Switch. And the Nintendo Switch uses a weaker ARM CPU and GPU.

                          The latest QC 8g1+ is far above it, and even beyond that is the Apple A13-Bionic (iPhone Max) and going further there is the Apple A12Z (small tablet), Apple M1 (tablet), then the M1 Pro (ultrabook), M1 Max (laptop), and M1 Ultra (mini-desktop). Then there's the Amazon Graviton3 (64 core, Cortex-X1 based) and the Ampere Altra Max (128 core, Cortex-A76 based). That's if you want to go for full-blown cloud servers/super-computers.

                          At every segment, ARM seems to have some advantage over x86.
                          Even below the 4W-6W level of Large Phones (Cortex-A78 / Avalanche-cores), there's the 1W-2W level of Small Phones (Cortex-A53 / Blizzard-cores), and then there is the Sub-1W level of Wearables too (Cortex-A35 / Exynos W920 / Apple WS7).

                                        Then again, the other guy wants to emulate Windows to play 10 year old AAA games, that certainly is a very tiny niche...
