User opinions and reviews

  • Dude

So i have used phones with both chipsets and the Exynos on the A50 had like 10% less battery than the Snapdragon chipset 7 pro, i used them both heavily regularly, like navigation, heavy intense gaming, calls. I do prefer the Snapdragon chipsets bcuz...

how is your day with some light gaming (not a heavy gamer by the way) some youtube discord and watching netflix and reading stuff daily plus chatting on various social media apps does it heat up or drain battery noticably?

Ss now cooling with copper for exy, and graphite for snap. lmao
