Nick Tegrataker, 03 Feb 2024That's ignoring the fact that iQOO 12 and X100 Pro are... moreBoth use same panels, but RR is limited on x100p at 120 while i12 can go 144Hz.
Both run funtouch 14.

i12 : 6,173 mAh / min
X100p: 6,482 mAh / min

For light tasks like messaging, email, internet browsing , listening to music , using core A7xx is such power waste. Cores A5xx can do it easily.

Mediatek is trying to gain clients by benchmarks. In vain cause their main phone ( 100 Ultra) uses 8g3. Clear sign vivo thinks 8g3 is better.

    hmm Ultra has 100mah bigger battery so its about same than 24+..

    not see any reason to go s24 series....looks s24 series real update is just AI option...
    and it has several bugs....looks also that Samsung made it fast to get new phone market.
    let see s25 ultra....im pessimist that also..
    think my nest phone is....,1st time Apple...lets see...

      Anonymous, 03 Feb 2024Aren't 855 and 865 flagship SoC? Phones with these c... moreThat's ignoring the fact that iQOO 12 and X100 Pro are different phones with different display panels running different software versions.

      X cores are more power efficient than A7xx cores and A7xx cores are more efficient than A5xx cores when they are running at higher clock speed. The only reason why SoC designers would want to use A5xx is to save a die space and reduce the idle power consumption slightly, for more CPU intensive tasks A5xx always lose out to the other two in terms of efficiency.

        Nick Tegrataker, 03 Feb 2024Oh no, how surprising is it that flagship SoCs run hotter a... moreYes, let's make even stronger chips every year so phones even with vapor chamber as larger as their batteries still get hot, so those silly games can go from 720p to 800p and no useful purpose for this much power.

          No 10 bit display is a big disgrace. The company who make display for most of the brands don't even use the best display itself

            Phones with these chips dont overheat.

            X100 Pro with 400mAh more than iqoo12, scored bit over 20 min more.
            Difference should be higher if chip was not power hungry as well.

                    Exynos is performing worst of them and have the higher power comsuption, in fact is less efficient than even 8Gen2
                    Look at Dimensity 9300 , is the best implemeted ARM arch , and only with big cores.
                    In this moment in fact a can give any money to have a S24 Ultra with Dimensity 9300 SOC

                      Mills, 02 Feb 2024Yea but still. 1080 to 1440 is that big? Never realized.It is actually 1.8x more pixels. So, not that bad but not great either.

                        "No charger in the box and ships with a 3A Type-C cable, which cannot do 45W charging."

                        That is just sloppy. If it was a mid-range phone, it would have been understandable. But on a flagship, that is just bad practice. They are already not providing basic stuff like charger, but whatever accessories they are giving should be able to use the phone's full potential. It literally costs less than 1% of the phone. Just shady business practice.

                              1440p resolution destroy the battery life compare to 1080p of S23+.

                                Does this phone utilize software proximity sensor or a hardware based one ?
                                What about the Xperia 5 V, Does it have hardware based sensor ?

                                    No!!! Of course it's quite much better than last year's S23+. GSMArena's ratings means usually absolutely nothing (to me). They present just a rough opinion and a comparison based on other latest flagships they have recently reviewed and so forth and value for money also included. S24+ is of course an amazing phone but it's too expensive for my budget.

It's a way to keep your device cool while maintaining most of it's performance. And yes modern flagship chips are so much powerful that they do throttle more than what it used to be in past but still they are far ahead of older chips.
