Testing the brand new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1

Hype all the way, but what about battery!? My motorola g9 power, one of the top 5 highest rated batteries on this site, after 18 months it can't get past 6-8 hours of SOT, and I am not even playing games on it. That's a low end device, with low res display, and 6A battery. I don't even want to imagine if someone pulls a vanilla s22 again.
Seriously, if the consumption is even higher than SD8 gen 1, then it's TRASH. Period.

    This chip finally defeats Mediatek, but the power consumption compared to Apple is very high. And stability is not that great compared to Apple.

    Still, is a nice improvement and gaming phones will get the best benefit of it.

    However we cannot say the same with the SD 7 Gen 1.

      "this new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ platform. It is the current best on the Android market, "

      I'm going to give you guys the benefit of the doubt that you mean best qualcom on the android market and not chipset overall

      Because if your implying best overall chipset without any real production models then not only would that not be objective that would be some unhealthy bias

      Hopefully we stick to actual testing then making proper conclusions

        based on benchmark from watt performance above with plus model performance compared to standard 8 gen 1,

        cpu power reduction 20% > same as gpu

        gpu power reduction 20% > as 8 gen 1 gpu commonly throttling to 50% performance this will
        improve performance ,gpu will only throttle to 70% or 50% with power saving

        Npu power reduction 30% > this will prevent camera lens fogging (mi12 pro issue becuase of overheating using camera)

        The problem now is the thermal will the temp drop 30% also?

          Wow so essentially mediatek still has better architecture design and more cache

          Qualcomm really is helped by enabling OEMs the 7gen 1 is just an 870 rebranding essentially smh

            So the new chip not only beats but demolishes the Exynos now, oh boy

              Anonymous, 20 May 2022I'll believe the hype when I see battery and throttlin... morethe mumclatura plus, should tell you something, right? hahaha it has always been known that these versions are eoverklocked versions of the previous ones

                It's the battery life tests that we want to see. I don't understand why for the past year to have flagship performance we have to put up with iphone 4 battery life.

                  LGs, 20 May 2022Dimensity 9000 Beat S8 gen 1+Yeah, but your phones aren't mediatek. Right?

                    You should have run the same benchmarks few times, after each other to have some impression of throttling.

                    Also how about temperature of the sample device ? Was it better than, let's say the Snapdragon phone from the last time ?

                          I'll believe the hype when I see battery and throttling tests. Right now, it just looks like an overclocked 8 gen 1.
